Logline: Six-year-old Sarah becomes an entrepreneur in a lucrative industry — she pulls teeth for The Tooth Fairy.
A Fistful of Molars is a short genre film starring Darby Butcher, Eleni Nico, Stephanie Herrera, and Steve Kasan. It was written, directed, shot and cut by Ryan Couldrey. Well, it's being cut right now — look for it in 2018.
Above and below are poster images, ungraded stills, and outtakes taken from the three days of filming on location in Whitby and Toronto, Ontario.
Follow Ryan on Instagram for updates during the editing and lead-up to release.

That's a wrap! From the end of day three with the cast and crew. Left to right: Eleni Nico (actor), Carolyn Wu (Ad/recordist), Ryan Couldrey (director/DP), Steve Kasan (actor), Margo Paige (HMU), Kira Hall (script supervisor)

Darby's getting up to something (as was Imogen with the slate... how many cameras do we need, Immie?)

The director is great with kids (Darby was a natural and knew how to get what she wanted, in this case, cookies!)
