Dusting off our first self-produced movie
After 11 years of wanting to continue the story, it is finally time to remake the classic that went worldwide back in 2005. Yes, PAINT is getting made the way it should have been. FULL-LENGTH, Action-packed, and with experienced filmmakers.
Paint was Aria Pictures’ first self-produced movie which was right out of film and post-production school. We wanted to see if we could complete and deliver a viewable product, and we did; it sold millions for a 19 minute short… OKAY! It did not sell millions and is not a classic, YET! But people worldwide have viewed it.
Created with $5000 and a cast of family and friends – both longtime and new – it was a wonderful journey and positive experience — it had to have been otherwise we would not have been involved in so many productions since.
After the original PAINT, we were planning on a second that took place 2 months after the first, but as time went by, life got in the way, and actors grew up and apart from each other by the time we got to it, it was 3 years later — we stuck it in a corner and glanced at it now and then.
Our Biggest Production to date.
Aria Pictures with the help of some very talented people, such as Brendan Brooks, Jim Heck, Scott Slotterbeck, Mark Hoffman, Krystina Mae, Rob Tillitz, Access Sacramento, Ron Cooper, Danny Gray, Steve Dakota, Doug & Maureen Young, Tamara Davenport, Aria Leven Davenport, Kyriè Sierra Davenport, Judith Plank, Ryan McKinney, Doug Hammer, Danna Wilberg, Frank Cosgriff, Double Oak Vineyards & Winery, Hilsman Family, Lucchesi Vineyards & Winery, Gary L. Conover, Gretta Sosine, Karly Avva, Bruce Bradley, Kel Owens, Dan Bazzoli, Christopher Bazzoli, Robert Stuckey, Justus Brooks, Barbara Brooks, and so MANY, MANY more that… Why do I hear the music playing as they go to commer….
With the support, help, and encouragement from everyone that has been involved with an Aria Pictures Production, we have gained more experience, courage, and expertise in the filmmaking process. All those productions from 3 to 55 minutes are our foundation to pull off a 90+ minute movie (we think it will be closer to 120 minutes, but that is an early estimation), but it will not seem that long with all we have to put in it.
We had 26 actors in our first try at a longer movie with THE GOLdEN TREE that was 42 minutes long. We had a decent-sized crew for Petite Chardonnay that went up to 55 minutes. We are expecting over 30 actors, a bunch of crew members, and many days of production.
And it is all paid.
We are not sure how we are going to do this, we have an idea, and we will need your help, eventually, to support this movie that will be done by local greater Sacramento area actors and crew who can do the job and deserve to be paid. Wither Gas money or more, at least that is better than $0 which includes having to drive to get to the set, get their own wardrobe, and sacrifice their time like many other projects in the area.
But just like we have seen on all of our productions, the actors are 100% committed to their craft, their love of movies, and giving of their time for the fun of it or for the possibility that something big comes along, but mostly to be a part of a team/family that created something that people can watch.
Stretching our hands out to everyone.
We will need help in all aspects of film production. From screenplay proofing to production help. Aria Pictures and Gerald Martin Davenport want to open this up to other local production companies, camera ops, directors, lighting, visual effects, artists, and the lot. We have seen some great movies done by Sacramento area talent and we would love to work with you. If you are interested or know someone who might be, Contact Us.
If you are an avid movie buff who loves to support local artists, we would love your contribution but will not give you the fluffy little producer credit that does not mean anything, we will be giving you a percentage of the film WHEN it does get distributed. So support and possibly make some money with this. Who knows. We hope something good will come out of this, and not just for us, but for anyone involved. Filmmaking is a team effort.
PAINT! A New Beginning. It’s Just a Game, Right?
