In 2004, twin brothers ADAM & DONOVAN MONTIERTH wrote, produced and directed a little 35mm film that changed their lives. That film, which started out as a tribute to their grandfather, was called Reveille and starred film and American Forces Veteran's David Huddleston and James McEachin. Reveille soon was screened at over 50 film festivals, winning over 20 awards and was shown on The Pentagon Channel and the American Forces Network. In 2007, it was viewed by the Armed Forces in Balad, Iraq, became a viral sensation by being viewed to over 5 million people on Google Video (before there was YouTube) and won the twins an Emmy Award.
Adam & Donovan spent the next few years trying to get a feature film based on Reveille produced called Capture the Flag. At one point, in 2008-2009, the film looked like it was finally going to be made, they had a $5 million dollar budget through a hedge fund and signed actors and Veteran's James Garner and Louis Gossett Jr. The recession hit and the hedge fund withdrew the funds before they could start production and the film went into turnaround.
Brothers' Ink Productions (the twins production company) regrouped and decided to produce a thriller anthology series in the style of the old Night Gallery, Twilight Zone and Amazing Stories TV Shows that the twins loved so much in their youth. At a much lower budget and with thriller scripts that had twist endings, their strategy would be to recruit recognizable TV actors to act in 5-7 short segments that could be pieced together as a TV show or full-length feature film if it wasn't picked up for series. Each segment would have a different director but have a similar tone and structure.
Locker 13 has grown to include 4 Kindle eBooks, a Graphic Novel and a full-length feature starring TV favorites Ricky Schroder, Rick Hoffman, Jon Gries, Jon Polito, David Huddleston, Krista Allen, Talyana Ali, Curtis Armstrong, Jessie Garcia, Jason Marsden, Jason Spisak and Thomas Calabro.
