4 Rooms. 4 Stories. Infidelity.
“Bedrooms” is an evocative drama about the walls that separate people, the heartbreak and infidelity that are often the result and the redemption that is possible when we choose to speak the truth and tear those walls down. A unique collaboration among a collective of independent filmmakers, “Bedrooms” is told in four distinct stories set in four bedrooms. In one story, Moon Bloodgood (“Terminator Salvation”) and Jordan Belfi (“Entourage”) play a husband and wife at the critical turning point of their young relationship. In another, Julie Benz (“Dexter”) and Xander Berkeley (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”) are a husband and wife desperately trying to recover from infidelity, while Jesse Garcia (“Quinceañera”) plays a pizza delivery boy who unwittingly becomes the catalyst for the ultimate resolution of their marital conflict. In the third story, Dee Wallace (“E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial”) and Barry Bostwick (“Spin City”) play a retired couple coming to the end of a long and unusual extra-marital affair. And in the last story, Sarah Clarke (“Twilight”) plays a recently divorced mother of ten year old twins who decide to create their own separate spaces in the room they share by building a wall out of all their toys. “Bedrooms” is a comic, sweet and gut wrenching exploration of human relationships, their myriad complications and the daily choice we face to either make them work or to move on.

He’s a Walking Crime Scene!
Dr. Samuel Pratt is a multi-doctorate scientist who is obsessed with raising the dead. But just as Sam is about to perfect his colossal breakthrough, an unfortunate series of circumstances puts him in conflict with organized crime. The mobsters kill Sam and take off with his irreplaceable research, hoping to sell the secret of immortality to the highest bidder. Pratt’s desperate fiancé and his shady lab assistants use the remaining prototype formula to bring him back to life. Humor mixes with horror as Pratt is resurrected and mummified, wrapped in police scene crime tape and out for revenge against the criminals who destroyed his life’s work. But time is against him. Sam must find a way to restore himself to true life before he denigrates into a mindless killing machine – the hulking anti-hero, who lurks in the shadows of LA’s underbelly, which the tabloids have dubbed: Shambler.
X-TREME SQUIRRELS™ follows Caleb, a young, humble country squirrel who gets caught up in the fame and fortune of the cutthroat world of extreme squirrel road racing.
After the loss of his father in a tragic road racing accident, Caleb and his mother are left with nothing more than an old mantle filled with dusty racing trophies and a pile of unpaid back taxes on their tree home. When the Beaver Revenue Service (B.R.S.) threatens to repossess the tree home that has been in their family for generations, Caleb goes against his mother’s strict instructions and enters the annual Back-Forty Road Race. However, after losing the Back-Forty Race to Rex, the cheating, two-time National Champion squirrel, Caleb runs away in shame, leaving his mother and his best friends behind. As Caleb spirals more deeply into his delusional life of fame, his lifelong best friends – Mickey, a squirrel who is afraid of heights, and Reggie, a spineless opossum with a weak heart condition – must try to pull Caleb from the destructive precipice of his wayward lifestyle and back to reality. Mickey and Reggie must help Caleb before he again goes head-to-head with Rex, this time at the National Championship, a deadly, 10-lane superhighway known simply as the Gauntlet.
Creations by Comic Book and Graphic Novel legends:
Bob Layton has, for all intents and purposes, done it all in the comics industry. In 1978, with writing partner David Michelinie, Bob totally re-imagined Marvel’s Invincible Iron Man, ultimately transforming it from a low-end book into one of Marvel’s all-time best sellers.
When they took over the series in 1979, the book was near cancellation numbers, under 90 thousand copies. By the time Michelinie and Layton left their first run on Iron Man, the title was selling at half-a-million units per month. Then, years later, after numerous creative teams had caused the title to tank again, Bob and David came back to Iron Man to revitalized it once more, first with the revolutionary Silver Centurion armor design and then, with the wildly-successful story arc–Armor Wars.
Their storyline “Demon in a Bottle” is now considered a milestone in comics history and was recently voted as ‘one of the top 20 comic stories of all time’ by the industry’s own. Numerous concepts and characters that David and Bob created are represented on the silver screen in the 2008 motion picture–Iron Man and the upcoming sequel, Iron Man 2.
Below are just a few of the comic-book-to film adaptations we are working on.
