HuffPost Latino Voices: "Among all of the female characters in the films analyzed in the study, 68% of them were white. White women made up an even higher percentage — 70% — of 'major' characters, which the study defined as appearing 'in more than one scene and are instrumental to the action of the story.'" #RepresentationMatters

You were pretty awesome 2019. We made our first feature directed by @staceymaltin . We took our short #Jones and our pilot #Linked to festivals across the country making new friends, broadening our community, and picking up some pretty cool honors along the way! We won best narrative drama short, got done best director noms for #staceymaltin and best actress nominations for @marzapproved and we were truly honored to receive the Limelight award for women in film from @senefest. We worked with some amazing talent including the one and only @catecurtin. Oh yeah and we spent some time in waterfalls. Thank you for being a part of our Besties fam. See you in 2020! #womxninfilm #love #filmfamily #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #bicoastal #tcamgmt

We are imperfectly all of these on our sets but we try! Here’s to sustainability in filmmaking and all of our sets taking small steps to being eco friendly each time we get back out there.

We don't need a handful of people doing sustainability perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly #BeTheChange 💚

Our Story

BMM is a production company that will boldly raise up those who Hollywood has left behind, founded by Marzy Hart and Stacey Maltin. Upon meeting in an improv class, we knew our partnership would lead us to do great things. We share the same goals of telling the stories audiences need yet aren’t getting while keeping the integrity and authenticity of each project. Our partnership works so well because we support each other unconditionally and put our all into everything we take on.

We offer producing, writing, directing, acting, editing & casting services for narrative, corporate & branded content. If you’re interested in investing in any of our projects and supporting diverse voices, we’d be happy to chat!
