I recently produced and directed 'Doonby' - a controversial & disturbing small town drama set in Texas that addresses one of the world's biggest moral issues. A review by the legendary L.M. Kit Carson ('Paris Texas) said 'It's a Wonderful Life' meets 'The Twilight Zone'. Stars John Schneider, Jenn Gotzon, Ernie Hunt, Robert Davi and Jennifer O'Neill. It was released in the US theatrically and on VOD in late 2013 and had a US release on DVD in July 2014. It will be distributed internationally later in the year. (see Facebook page at doonbythemovie and website www.doonby.com).
I have four other projects, scripted and ready to go.
'The Wedding Present', a very scary paranormal thriller, to be shot in Louisiana, similar genre to 'The Ring' and 'White Noise'.
'Finklestein's Miracle' a hilarious comedy set in a small Southern town where a Hollywood director of schlock 'B' movie finds himself making a film about the Bible on a budget of $20 thousand. Great family film with a feelgood ending.
'South of Memphis' - a steamy action drama set in the 60s in the Deep South as a ex-con black preacher on a whistle stop crusade struggles to cope with the blackmail of a ruthless penitentiary excapee who is being hunted by a cop whose wife he murdered.
'High School '58' (working title). Fun filled, high energy teen dance movie. 'High School Musical' meets 'Grease' meets 'Glee'.
Looking for additional development and production funding for above. All have excellent tax breaks and production incentives available.
I have also produced or directed over 150 commercials and several documentaries plus three other feature movies which were distributed world wide.
