Casting for Feature Film

Auditions Aug 27th in PDX - FEATURE FILM - we have strong distribution contacts and will be shooting this project in the coming weeks.

This is a mockumentary feature film in the style of Christopher Guest (Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman) will follow several hard working men and women in the street sign holding industry and discover their dreams (fame and fortune) goals (the woman he wants) motivation (money to buy weed) and aspirations (control of the industry). What should be a simple story of someone needing a job in this tough economy it becomes much more as the two factions, those who wear costumes ("But we're artists!") and those who don't, (We don't need costumes, we spin signs!") and the impending UNION that will change their lives forever.

About our Company:

Our first live action short James Vs Reality has gone on to be selected for over 22 film festivals, WINNING DIY in Los Angeles and Award of Excellence at Accolades in San Diego. It will also be seen at Dragon*con next month in Atlanta.

Please see the trailer for the above short film here:

Our company in association with Mother's Eye's Entertainment, LLC just wrapped a SAG feature film starring Adrienne King of Friday the 13th fame and it is now in post production. We also have three other SAG features lined up to produce over the next 6 years.

Shatterpoint is a new sci-fi/thriller project from the producers of the feature SAG indie film “The Innocent”, and the writer/director of the feature horror film “15”.


The fall of mankind is near. The seven deadly sins have spread their poison through our cultures, our cities, and our souls. As reality crumbles around us, one woman rises to fight for mankind’s very existence.

Guided by the seven heavenly virtues, and opposed by the seven deadly sins, her decisions will decide the fate of our reality. Pray for her, for if she falls, you will cease to exist.


DATE: Sunday, August 28th from 9am – 10pm

The 7 deadly sins are: Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath, Greed, Sloth and Lust.

The 7 heavenly virtues are: Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness and Humility.

There are several good reference sites available online – simply google ‘7 deadly sin explained’ or ‘7 heavenly virtues explained’.
