Hey everyone! Kyle here, it has been a while and we haven’t posted much, but so many things have happened!

-Riders on the Storm got picked up for distribution!

-Adventures in #Adulting has been getting great play at several film festivals (or so I have been told)!

-GET GONE (a film we helped out on, not produced) was picked up and has its Hollywood premier on January 24th! It releases on Amazon the next day.

- Tinderbox Movie got the funding it needs to be made, and is currently in preproduction!

-Several other projects have finished and been released or worked on!

I am getting started on producing again. I think more than anything that is where I have the most to offer the community and industry, so I will be focusing my energy there. I have an informative youtube series I will be launching soon, and I am actually dipping my toe in the film production equipment realm. I have had a BUNCH of ideas, and want to share so hopefully everyone can get something from it.

Look forward to sharing everything with you all soon!

When is a job well done barely noticed? When Foley artists nail a "natural" sound with studio props. This is how sound comes to life in Hollywood.

Last Tango scandal shows toxic extent of male power in film industry | Peter Bradshaw

Despicable. This is why we are committed to promoting equality in the film industry and writing empowered female characters - this is the sort of history we are working to overcome.

Marlon Brando and Bernardo Bertolucci’s prioritisation of cinema over human feeling is the tip of the iceberg in industry that has seen abuse go unchallenged for decades

A Mighty Girl

“I too remember a time when I would turn on the TV and only see pale skin. I got teased and taunted about my night shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter skinned... My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you.

What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul... We remember the beauty of her spirit even though the beauty of her body has faded away. And so I hope that my presence on your screens and in magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey. That you will feel the validation for your beauty, but also get to the deeper business of feeling beautiful inside. There is no shade in that beauty.” -- Lupita Nyong'o
