New York-based creative boutique and post house Goodpenny composer Andrew Hollander and writer/director Blayne Weaver dive fearlessly into bachelor life in 6 Month Rule, premiering at the 2011 Austin Film Festival October 20-27.  Hollander composed the score and co-wrote two original songs (“Maybe I” and “Silver Penny”) with Brookyln-based singer/songwriter Christian Gibbs.  The film revolves around a bachelor who follows a set of rules in order to avoid emotional attachment, the most important being: there is no woman so perfect that you can’t get over her in six month.

The film delivers a romantic, charming, and poignant look at relationships, seen from the eyes of Tyler, who lives by a philosophy that allows him to avoid making any significant connections with women.  He frequently boasts that he can get over a woman in six months or less, but this is mostly due to his fear of emotional attachment.  His best friend has just become Tyler’s main project, as he tries to teach his buddy all about the joys of cold-hearted bachelorhood.  However, when he keeps bumping into a fascinating woman, he discovers that no philosophy is set in stone.
