Our Mission

Our mission is simple- to make films that not only stir the imagination, but films that will wake your brain up and get you thinking. It doesn’t matter if we make a 5 minute film, a feature, or a series; we always want to keep spice in our art, and we want to take ALL of the film cliches out of our projects. One of our motto’s is, “together we will reach the world.” We aren’t here to bow down to the corporate puppet masters, we aren’t going to be told what “they” think society wants to see on the silver screen; we will put out films that tingle with thought provoking material.

About A Raven's Cry

A Raven’s Cry is the prequel to Hush Little Baby. The film takes place a year prior to HLB and the O’Malley family, Paul, Becky and Paul Jr. are the picture of the all American family. Becky just finished medical school and she has just started doing her internship at Pine Ridge hospital. They live with Paul’s grandmother because they are trying to save up money to buy their own drum home. The neighborhood that they live in looks completely normal from the outside. New houses, a park, people out jogging in the street, ladies out trimming back flower beds, and husbands doing yard work.

But, what seems completely normal, just may be a facade for something much more sinister lurking behind closed doors. For instance, Paul’s neighbor Sebastian Boudreaux receives a mysterious package, wrapped in a beautiful box, but what’s really inside? The ladies that meet every Wednesday evening for tea and bunko….what are they really doing? A secret society has interwoven themselves in a “normal” community, and soon that neighborhood will be awaken with the screams of horror

What we are trying to do

We are in our second installment of our 8 film sort series. We are using this series to help high school and college students get hands on film experience on a real film set. We feel that on the job training is an invaluable experience, and will help these film students both behind and in front of the camera. Our goal is to get this series onto the Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon platforms as well as getting them on the film festival circuits.
