Socio-BTS-VideoVillageI've been so busy with back-to-back productions that I haven't posted all of the exciting updates I have in a while.

Before the holidays I produced Socio with Canvas Media Studios and Astronauts Wanted. Due to the genius of Bernie Su, we got to shoot the pilot for this kick-ass drama starring India Eisley and Michael Copon here in Los Angeles. For this project we brought back many of our creative team from Vanity. Socio is created and directed by Bernie Su, shot by Allen Ho, production design by Cody Fusina, editing by Robb Padgett, and casting by Mary Jo Slater. We were thrilled to have shot in iconic locations throughout the city including under the 6th Street Bridge and Echo Park Lake.

Check out what The Hollywood Reporter had to say about Socio.

Here are some photos from our shoot:

On March 29th 2010, Cornbread Films and Peninsula Productions hosted a private industry screening of Hopelessly in June at the Majestic Crest Theatre in Westwood, CA to a packed house of 400+ people.  The night started with a glamorous red carpet where our cast and executives spoke with red carpet host Kristyn Burtt (video coming soon).

As the crowd settled our director, Vincent Brantley, introduced the film and the lights were dimmed.  Our audience enjoyed 90 minutes of pure laugh out loud moments, amazing music and a story to match the talent on screen.  In attendance were our stars, Carolyn Neff and Vincent Brantley, Keith David, Peter Jason, Stuart Pankin, Tiny Lister and Ella Joyce.

After the screening we headed to X Bar in Century City were we reminisced about the two and a half year filmmaking process and made plans for the future.  At this time we are actively pursuing distribution and film festivals.  Our goal is to get this film in the right hands so we can share the film with the world.  Check in here and at the official Hopelessly in June website for more information about future screenings and deals.

With so many events, shoots, screenings and parties all the time, it's easy to miss out on events that would be truly beneficial to attend.  I propose that we try to compile events in one place.  I'm willing to do it as long as I have your help... when you see info about an event that's industry related and open on some level to people in the web, tv and film industries, please pass the info along to me either by txt, email, DM or FB message.  This way we can keep track of important dates.
