Not Coffee Productions exists to serve as a hub for collaboration between writers, directors, producers and actors who are not currently affiliated with any major media company. It allows the creation and financing of independent film and stage productions. The company works with the artists from the initial concept and through development, pre-production, production, post production and distribution in the case of film, and through production for theater.
We believe in nurturing creativity and talent and giving people a chance to express these traits while gaining exposure.
The company has the advantage of being run by creative individuals who will be less inclined to sacrifice creative integrity for the sake of making a larger profit. The individuals who decide what gets produced will be carefully selected and will be excellent critics, which ensures that only scripts that are well-written will be put into production. Additionally, the leadership of the company consists of people who are both creative and frugal. Our competitive strength is that we combine these two aspects to produce products that are both creative and low-budget. Also, we do not have as many expenses as other companies because all of our manpower is on a volunteer basis, allowing us to put more money into producing good quality material.
Our mission is to create and produce performance pieces, including works for film and stage, while at the same time encouraging and financing independent writers, directors, and actors in their artistic endeavors and increasing the reputation of the independent film and stage community in today's market.
