Our Film Production Company
New York, NY • San Fransisco, CA
Develop and produce sophisticated stories that embrace social issues often ignored, misappropriated or ostracized.
Research the implications of social/personal needs/behavior, social agreements and interpersonal commitments to define a character and discover a story viewpoint and behavior pattern through truth.
Confront or ignore censorship, financial or social pressure that tries to alter the truth. There is always an audience for a good story well told.
Combine story and character truth with mainstream storytelling methods, embracing drama, humor, arc, conventional movie styles that enhance the story.
The process for making movies will often be to start with a treatment and some scenes, then hire a group of CORE actors to develop and workshop the characters, story and dialogue. Characterization and story will be enriched by their individual backgrounds, talents and ethnicities. Casting for talent/commitment over type prevails, and ethnicity is unimportant unless relevant to the story statement.
The backbone of the movie, the spine, is the interlocking story arc of the characters. To be believable, the actors must become the characters, not portray or play them. They should do and feel what the character does, allowing natural, organic interaction with animate or inanimate objects/people. An actor is directed to find their feelings that generate actions. Not told what to do, with few exceptions. The workshop process can be time consuming.
