US SINNERS (Like no one here has ever heard that before)

What's the logline and Synopsis of your feature?

Tim Connelly (Brandon Schraml) has been abused his entire life. In his twenties, he's still living with his religious zealot mother (Leslie E. Hughes) who continues to make his life miserable. As the foreman of a maintenance crew, Tim garners no respect from his subordinates. So, Tim releases his frustrations on prostitutes, by slaughtering them. When Louise O'Connor (Brenda Cooney) comes to work at "Do It All Cleaning", Tim falls in love. Can love harness hate? If not, there's only one person who can put an end to his murderous rage.

Where's the trailer, facebook page, website?

http://ussinners.webs.com (trailers/reviews/photos/early storyboards) for a cheap free website, it has more then the original. It's just not as pretty.

Long done.

How long were you in production (from pre-to-post)?

Shooting took 5 months. Post took almost a year and a half. But, that's because the sound designer was... was... well never mind.

Do you see distribution in your future or have you been distro'd?

Hart D. Fisher's AMERICAN HORRORS

What's the back-up plan? Go on a killing spree like Tim

As dumb as it is, because they're not that popular. Back in 2009 - Amazon On Demand.

What's the name of your feature?

Tentative Title: Assassins

What's the logline and Synopsis of your feature?

Our super loose Synopsis: Life changed for Chris that Thursday evening. The brutal murder of his ex-girlfriend has left him shaken. More than that, he is haunted by the face of a man he doesn’t know, just a stranger Chris saw walking down the street moments before he opened the door to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment. Moments before a large part of his world came crashing down.
And it is not about to get better.
Only a week later, Chris finds himself faced with yet another stranger, a man who claims to know who his ex-girlfriend’s killer is. The stranger’s name is Simon and the explanation he gives to Chris makes his blood run cold. The man who murdered his ex-girlfriend is an extremely dangerous man, a contract killer, and the fact that Chris has seen his face can only mean one thing: he will be coming back around to make sure Chris doesn’t share what he knows.
He will be coming soon to kill him.
Simon, a bounty hunter who has been tracking the mysterious killer for nearly a decade, has a plan. As he has never laid eyes on the killer, Simon will lure him out into the open so that Chris can identify him. Then he will take him down. But Simon might not be as helpful as he appears to be and Chris quickly finds himself becoming a pawn in a very deadly game of retribution between two savage men willing to do whatever it takes to see the other man dead.

Still making a real page for the film, but for now we're featuring it on my director's page...

And my FB page where I'll update it constantly...

Is it complete or being completed?

Being shot on weekends and week nights the second half of Feb. 2012

How long were you in production (from pre-to-post)?

I'll let you know when it's done

Do you see distribution in your future or have you been distro'd?

We'd love to have distribution. We're currently in talks to try and attach a name or two, plus one of our leads was on the very popular Facebook viral campaign: Take this Lollipop.

What's the back-up plan?

This is part 1 of a trilogy and we will be using any good will we get for this film to raise money for a larger, more complex sequel.

I'll bite. Looks like I'll have the first documentary in the thread...

What's the name of your feature?

Laughter Against the Machine: The American Controversy Tour

What's the logline and Synopsis of your feature?

"W. Kamau Bell, Nato Green, and Janine Brito, three fearless comedians, are ready to unleash Laughter Against The Machine on America, whether America is ready or not! Laughter Against the Machine is a comedic peacekeeping mission to wade into the nastiest quagmires in the US, the flashpoints of American ignorance and upheaval. Like Comedy Central’s Insomniac with Dave Attell meets Democracy Now!, There may be blood, there may be learning, but there will definitely be laughter. "

This is a feature-length documentary following three liberal/progressive comedians as they leave the comfortable confines of their hometown crowds (SF bay area) and hit the road to visit US cities where recent political controversies have erupted. We hit Pheonix & Tucson, AZ (border & immigration issues), Madison, WI & Chicago, IL (union busting), New Orleans, LA (aftermath of Katrina), New York, NY (occupy wall street), Dearborn, MI (largest arab & muslim population in America), Washington, DC (lobbyist central) and finally came back to Oakland CA to wrap things up. More than just a comedy tour film, we spoke to activists on the ground in each of these cities to get first-hand accounts of their battles and find out where they think comedy fits into the political conversation.

First clip from the road: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayQffUcXa0I

Is it complete or being completed?

Production is complete - we did the tour and all principle filming between september - november 2011. We now have nearly 100 hours of footage, recently finished converting & syncing it all and we're starting the actual editing process. Our first public screening is in a couple of weeks as we preview 15-20 minutes at SF Sketchfest, a local comedy festival. Our plan is to wrap post by late spring/early summer in order to start distributing it in time to capitalize on increased political interest due to the upcoming election.

How long were you in production (from pre-to-post)?

It's still in progress, but looks to be 10-12 months total by the time we're finished.

Do you see distribution in your future or have you been distro'd?

We're in early discussions for television distribution, but that won't really get too concrete until the film is finished.

What's the back-up plan?

Not really a back up plan so much as a plan - finding distribution on television, dvds, etc through a distributor is almost more the backup plan. We'll likely tour the film ourselves with the comedians to do special screening events wherever possible. We expect to sell DVDs and other merchandise as part of the tour, as well as do a direct cheap & simple download option online similar to what Louis CK did last year. We funded the tour through kickstarter, and we can handle the full post process ourselves, so our only real investment in the project is time - and we'll be turning a profit from the very first ticket, dvd or download sold. This gives us a ton of freedom to be flexible with our distribution approach and adapt it to whatever proves to be most successful.

What's the name of your feature?

LEADING LADY

What's the logline and Synopsis of your feature?


How far would you go to achieve your artistic vision?

This ain't your mamma's "All About Eve"!

Nancy Nelson is a mid-western girl living in NYC trying to be a star. In 8 months she's gone on 110 auditions and landed 2 walk-ons. Her room mate Gabby is a failed actress. But, she knows some tricks that will help Nancy get noticed. George Charles has landed a financier for his drama/horror script "The Missing". Now, he has to cast his Leading Lady. It's everything and nothing you think.

Is it complete or being completed?

Damn thing should have been done by now.

How long were you in production (from pre-to-post)?

I wanted to do this in 2009 with Brandon, but we couldn't find a Nancy. It's a tough role. Finally in the beginning of 2011 I cast the movie. Fired the two lead actresses and recast. So, we've started shooting again. Brandon (Tim from Us Sinners) is on-board. So, we're starting "real" shooting next week.

Do you see distribution in your future or have you been distro'd?


Absolutely. Us Sinners was a very good starting point. We learned a lot from all the mistakes we made. We're not making the same one's again. So, we already have a few distributors interested. Including one of the one's that turned down Us Sinners for lack of T&A. Yeah, big F***ing mistake that one.

What's the back-up plan?

Go on a killing spree. Go ahead keep laughing.

Just started 3 month pre-production-12 day shoot-I want it premiered by the week of December 21, 2012. All private screenings, under ground distributorship, World premiere at Sundance-win best NEXT films award.

Low budget, killer script, starting to story board. Trying to make a timeless film push the limits.

My first producing effort. Turned an idea into a script. After less than spectactular response from "film" companies, figured I'd do it myself. When I say myself, I mean with a lot of help.

First auditions next Friday, filming should start beginning of May.

No back up plan. All in.

Just kidding, I have a contracting job and my wife is a nurse. A winter hobby that will be the NEXT film.

What's the name of your feature?
Through The Same Lens

What's the logline and Synopsis of your feature?
"One sees something and believes it to be true. That's only because they look at things through the same lens"

A film centered around obsession and what people are willing to do to get what they want.

Is it complete or being completed?
Completed

How long were you in production (from pre-to-post)?
I started developing the story back in August of 2010. I had to push back the production start date two times. I was finally able to start production the first week of September 2011. That was after changing elements of the story and going through a handful of talent.

Do you see distribution in your future or have you been distro'd?
At first that was the plan. Within the last month, I have decided just to upload the film for free. The main reason for that is the following. When my next film comes out, people have an idea what to expect. They will be able to access the film for free. That's my mindset at the moment.

What's the back-up plan?
None
