Support local talent

This does not happen often for us local artists, and we are doing it to show you that Hollywood is not the only place movies come from, and they are not the only place where talented people live. Come have some fun, watch your friends and family, and find out what is in store for 2016.

Remember BIG SCREEN, the first time in FULL HD (The Choice and THE GOLdEN TREE are the only two films that have been projected in their FULL HD on a big screen before), Local Northern California Talent (some of these people are already in other big projects – rub elbows with them before they get too famous), and we are giving away some cool prizes.

And please help spread the word. THANK YOU!! Such great stuff not to miss.

The proceeds from this event will go to jump-start our full-length feature PAINT Movie. We have to find a way to pay the talented actors, which is what the funds are for. We are not here to save lives, we are not here to help fight a cause (sort of), and we are not a charity. We just want to be able to get enough to be able to do what we love to do: Make Movies! It’s not like we are lying or trying to cheat you like many other entities. We just want to entertain — which remains to be seen — but if you help us fund our movie, it will help us succeed.

Remember: Lights on for safety. even during the day
