Pain is temporary, film is forever!
— john milius
film + television
It takes a village to make a film. A village of highly-skilled, multi-talented individuals who are willing to continually push beyond their comfort as they work long hours toward a common goal.
Through harmonious, organized effort, we create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. To ensure the success of our film and television projects, we work with people and organizations who are set apart by their creative depth, professional integrity, and love of compelling storytelling.

Awards/Recognition: Austin Film Festival 2nd Rounder
“The tension was maintained throughout the script and reminded me of the first couple of seasons of 24…Reza was enigmatic and able to attract the viewer’s attention as easily as a streaker at a football game.”
-Austin Film Festival Contest Reviwer
“There is a great story here and it is utterly fascinating. With the right showrunner to guide, CON LIFE will be a hit, no question.”
“CON LIFE is a pilot with countless strengths that leaves the reader wanting more after finishing the final page…The pilot offers countless attractive roles with an eye on diversity as well as international appeal. Additionally, the role of Reza should be one that has talent agents fighting over to get their client cast.”
