On Veteran's Day, 2015, we launched the website and trailer for a passion project we are hard at work on: Breaking Silence, a web series that strives to create a community for those suffering from post-traumatic stress across all boundaries, and to educate all of us, because we all have been or will be touched by it in some way, whether we suffer it ourselves, or know someone who does. Please check it out and stay tuned for more on this front.
We are thrilled that our productions have been honored with numerous awards and recognition over the years. And we have a few more laurels and accolades to add to the list. Steampunk adventurer Topsy McGee VS The Sky Pirates just took high honors at the New York City International Film Festival by winning Best TV Pilot, and it simultaneously appeared at the Marche du Cannes at the Cannes Film Festival.
Our adorable children's short The Many Mini Quests of Rouge et Brun is an Official Selection of the Brooklyn Film Festival's kidsfilmfest.
And our mockucomedy Con Artists is rockin the film fest world and is carrying its Official Selection laurels to the many screenings for GeekFest.
Thanks and congratulations to the whole team for another nod and we hope you continue to enjoy our adventures!
We are currently working on a complete make-over of all of our websites! Stay tuned!
