Movie poster of Adam Carbone - Randy Canvas screening - Rhode IslandNew England Institute of Technology graduate Adam Carbone has co-produced and plays the lead role in a new film titled “Randy’ Canvas.” It is being screened on Monday, October 23 at 7:00 pm at the Showcase Cinemas Warwick Mall.

Proceeds from Randy’s Canvas to benefit The Autism Project, RI

The film revolves around a high-functioning autistic character named Randy, who is trying to get his artwork displayed in an art gallery. His pursuit turns into an obsession, along with his relationship with a female who is involved in a relationship with another man.

The film was shot in various locations in Rhode Island in the summer of 2016, including scenes shot at New England Tech. Carbone spends time in both Rhode Island and Los Angeles. He grew up in Cranston and received a degree in video and audio production from New England Tech before he moved to L.A. to pursue his film career.

The film was directed and co-written by Sean Michael Beyer. It was Beyer who thought of Carbone for the role of Randy. Carbone then suggested making the movie in Rhode Island.

Carbone and Beyer have worked together on other projects, including a cooking show. For this project, they wanted to be respectful of the subject matter. They spent time researching autism and meeting with young adults and teens to talk about how autism should and should not be portrayed.

“Randy’s Canvas” will be at Showcase Cinemas Warwick Mall, 400 Bald Hill Road, Warwick, at 7 p.m. Monday. Tickets are $10 and are available at randyscanvas.brownpapertickets.com.
