Proudly announces the production of the feature film Above the Fruited Plains' (Summer 2014)

 

What is happening to families as America falls apart?

A misguided teenager tries to save his home from foreclosure by moving a huge amount of drugs. When he thinks he’s busted he runs away with his best friend, a girl with a hard life, their only escape is a raft downriver. They explore the sad gothic world of Midwestern decay and try to choose the right path to her farm.

Je Suis Le Rois- short film

In 'Je Suis Le Roi (I am the King)' a lost young man joins a party of revelers who play Victorian parlor games while waiting to crown a new king. Joe panics when he discovers there is no way out of the party- he’s caught between a smitten nymph and an enraged meathead.

The party erodes his psyche and he has no way out! He has to save Noola and prove himself worthy of the crown. A playful experimentation with film- layered optical and auditory illusions challenge the viewers and draw them in. Shepard scales and Brain-wave synchronization hypnotize the audience and allow them access to Joe’s inner psyche as he is tweaked and forced to grow.

Our Approach: There are a lot of people making beautiful polished experimental films- but we want to try something a little quirky- maybe even confrontational. The aim of this experiment is to play with the audience. The heartland of Indiana is a great place to be a little fancy and have a lot of fun. We can play here. We can try new things - or regurgitate our blithe reenactments of a cinematic style that once captivated the world. Our story will have a telepathy that is darkened by the nightmare that haunts us. But they play! They play...and fall in Love.
