The Con of Wrath

In 1982, just two weeks after the release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, a group of Houston fans attempted to stage one of the most ambitious Star Trek events in history. It was to include a live talk show, a one-act play, a laser light show with a full live orchestra, a jazz set from Nichelle Nichols, and everything performed on a rotating stage in a 16,000 seat basketball arena. Unfortunately, the event billed as the Ultimate Fantasy quickly melted down to become one of the most notorious fan events in Trek fandom history, and it was only through the combined spirit of the fans, the convention committee, and the Star Trek stars themselves to save the this once in a lifetime event. The Con of Wrath chronicles the travails of organizers and attendees in this amazing documentary from noted Star Trek historian Larry Nemecek. Produced in partnership with MyStar Media. Featuring never before seen interviews with George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, Harve Bennett, and Wende Doohan. 

Currently in post-production.

The Case of Evil

When a down-on-his-luck blues musicians travels to the country to buy a guitar he suspects was stolen from him many years earlier, he finds that its hoodoo-practicing owner is reluctant to hand over the instrument, and she's got something more on her agenda than a simple sale.

This noir short pays tribute to the classic horror films of Universal Pictures, and was highly praised for its authentic look and feel. Filmed entirely on location at the historic Weldon-Glasson house in Logan Heights, California, The Case of Evil debuted at the San Diego Horrible Imaginings Film Festival in late 2014. It subsequently went on to tour 39 film festivals across the United States, Canada, and the U.K., and racked up six awards including best horror picture and best actor for star Merrick McCartha. It was further nominated for best screenplay at the Barebones Film Festival and the 2015 San Diego Film Awards. 

Currently available for rental or purchase on Amazon Prime

OFFICIAL TRAILER

April's Big Day

April Ventura is San Diego comedian, best known for her brutally honest -- yet hysterical -- routines about her personal struggles against depression, and her triumphs over social conformity. Originally presented as a multimedia interlude within Look, I'll Prove It -- her 2014 San Diego International Fringe Festival stage show -- April's Big Day is a quirky, heartwarming, and often surreal stream-of-consciousness peek at how April sees her life as a single, struggling comic. (As a bonus, the short also includes the closing credits for the stage show as well as the credits for the performers in the short.) Warning: Some material may not be suitable for audiences under 18 years of age.

Shadow Company

In Indian Territory, the mass migrations west disturb ancient forces who have no love for humans of any race, religion, or creed. Faced with increasingly strange phenomena and deadly threats in untamed lands, the brave men of the newly formed -- but secret -- 11th Cavalry must find a way to protect life and liberty for all while preserving the peace between settlers and the native people in pre-statehood Oklahoma. 

We've had this pitch for a television series under our belts for a while, and will soon be shooting a pilot as part of our work of getting this project to the next level. We've already created a conceptual opening title sequence for it, and have created a number of VFX tests for the series to visualize how we might be able to recreate the old west with limited resources. The following test reel gives a hint of the feel and look we could be going for in Shadow Company
