One week and a half ago - the 6th independent feature film with cameras, technical support and post production wrapped. Our 7th “all-Red 4K” indie feature is still shooting and will wrap the day before I return from IBC on the 17th- more on that VERY soon. It’s going so well ... I don’t want to jinx it! Atlantic Pictures in association with Offhollywood Pictures presents Splinterheads.
Splinterheads is an action packed romantic comedy which tells the story of Justin Frost, a slacker whose world is turned upside down when he falls for Galaxy, a sexy and free-spirited con artist who works for a traveling carnival.
This film stars the lovely Australian actress Rachael Taylor (Shutter, Bottle Shock, Transformers) opposite the insanely funny Thomas Middleditch trained with Second City in Chicago, and he a frequent performer with the Upright Citizens Brigade. The film also features Lea Thompson, Dean Winters and Christopher McDonald. Shot by Director of Photography Michael Simmonds.
Written and Directed by Brant Sersen, who’s first feature film, Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story is a hilarious cult comedy smash that won several awards including the 2004 Audience Award at South by Southwest Film Festival, the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2004 Oxford Film Festival, a Special Jury Prize at the 2004 Lake Placid Film Festival and the 2004 Audience Award at IFFB.
Producer Darren Goldberg and I have know each other for years, and when he left the production company he co-founded, the 7th Floor, to form the development and production company Atlantic Pictures with Christopher Marsh, we immediately started talking about collaborating on feature projects. Darren is a fantastic producer and the kinda guy we want to work with again and again. Darren told me there would be a “teaser” cut very soon - so hopefully I’ll get to post that here on OBuzz!
