WATCH THIS: Short and Romantic on a Low Budget

Don't let the name fool you, this independent short is less about romance and more about urban gentrification. Two people ruminate over a recent stabbing in one of those typical conversations where a local tries to scare a newbie with tales of the neighborhoods criminal past, complete with references to rap songs and mayhem in a third world country. Written and directed by Neil Drumming and starring Gbenga Akinnagbe and Sofia Regan, Romantic was produced on a shoe-string budget. Shot on HD with a Canon HV30 in a studio, the short makes use of some creative production by subbing actual urban streets for a green screen backdrop and some photography of stereotpical Brooklyn shots -brownstones, graffiti, bodegas, and of course a liquor store.

Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford To Appear In Leona Lewis’ Video

Chace Crawford really knows how to charm the ladies as Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl, and he's apparently managed to charm Leona Lewis, even making his way into the video for her new song "I Will Be." The hot prep schooler met the Grammy-nominated songstress at a dinner in her honor at the Sanderson hotel in London last month, became fast friends, and quickly won a role in her music video -even a few speaking lines. Lewis was spotted shooting the video in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn on Friday. Isn't that Dan Humphrey's neighborhood? Could there be some cross-promotion synergy with Gossip Girl? We hope so! As for the song, Katy Perry weighs in on it saying, "I was at the point of tears knowing I heard a song that would be the hugest thing ever. I mean, people, be prepared to hear this song at every wedding for a long time.” PHOTO CREDIT: (Crawford) Sara Jaye Weiss
