Project: Charity Hockey Challenge, Hartford Whalers Fans

Seeking real stories and memories from Hartford Whalers fans to be featured at the beginning of charity hockey challenge videos.

Production states: "We are currently in a Charity Hockey Challenge to see if we can conquer NHL 91 - NHL 96 on the Sega Genesis as the Hartford Whalers. This is all to create awareness of Safe Sport, a non-profit organization committed to building a sports community where participants can work and learn together free of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse and misconduct. In the end, we want to use these games to answer the questions such as what if the Hartford Whalers made a deep playoff run, what if they continued to challenge for the title year in and year out. Would their future have been any different? Would Carolina even have a hockey team now?"

Project: Coercion (Feature Length Version)

I'm an independent filmmaker currently based in Sacramento. I have a ton of experience working on films, live events, podcasts, etc. This will be a roughly 80 to 90 minute psychological horror film. I don't want to reveal too many details about it because, besides being a film based around the plot slowly revealing itself, it's a somewhat sensitive subject matter so I need anyone involved in the film to tread carefully. Hoping to film it next year, 2023. I will also, hopefully, use it when applying to Master's programs.

PLEASE NOTE: Every role written here contains nudity, for the purposes of the story. I will gladly share the script with you if you ask for it, and I think you will agree that the story does not work without it.

I plan to submit it to arthouse and horror film festivals. Thanks for thinking about working on this film. 

College student Bobby starts having relationship and intimacy issues with his girlfriend, Shelby. What could be causing these issues? Maybe it has something to do with the killing spree he's recently started...

Project: Christian Sitcom

We are producing a Christian Sitcom --filming episodes 2-4 beginning July 28 in Cleveland, and September 3rd in Ft. Lauderdale and are looking for actors/extras for one-time and ongoing episodes.

 

A Quality Christian Sitcom?
Mocking God and His principles is the norm in every single sitcom.  With your help, that's about to change.  

The author of a book which hit #2 on the Christian "Relationship" chart has written this sitcom to counter the culture while making people laugh.  Like the book, the fun, upbeat sitcom will take viewers on a roller coaster ride from "Mr. Right Now" all the way to "Mr. Right," without losing heart and without losing faith.

Author of six books is best known as the architect of the pro-life Heartbeat Bill (to protect every child whose heartbeat can be detected) which is now law in 14 states (and counting). She is not satisfied with the status quo and is known for changing it.
 
WHY?  Reaching the Lost & Discipling Nations.  While most non-Christians aren't drawn to sermons, everyone wants to laugh.  The sitcom "What's a Girl to Do?" will make people laugh while putting God and His truths in a positive light--finally. 

Be a Pioneer & Help Pave the Way!  Your talent can help produce the first quality Christian Sitcom of its kind.  It features Robert Davi (The Goonies, Die Hard, The Expendables 3), Rusty Joiner (Dodgeball, Melrose Place, Voiceless), Chris Routhe (Chicago Fire, Empire, Chicago PD.), Matthew Moore (Homeless for the Holidays), George Kokkoris (Android Cop, Burn Notice), and many other accomplished actors.  

There are lots of good Christian movies, but there are NO Christian sitcoms from which to choose.  Let's change that. Instead of entertainment with the indoctrination of a godless worldview, let's create a quality sitcom that honors God and advances His Kingdom...while having fun.
