Actor James Franco moves seamlessly between film roles, as displayed by two very different characters in his recent films, “Spring Breakers” and “Oz the Great and Powerful”. But Franco has never been one to see himself as just an actor, delving into writing and directing.
His latest project as director is a short, three-part video campaign for denim brand 7 For All Mankind. Franco has crafted a love triangle in a story titled ‘A Beautiful Odyssey’. The second chapter was just released, with the third scheduled for late April. The third chapter will feature fan input, as 7 For All Mankind Facebook fans can vote on the fate of the characters in the series.
The second chapter stars hockey player Sean Avery, actor Peter Vack and model Elise Crombez.
Watch the video, then go to Facebook and vote. 7 For All Mankind will release Franco’s version, as well as the fan’s, in late April.
