HIGH HOPES comedy

Cecily Gambrell, Screenplay*, Producer, Cast

*Page One Rewrite

 

ABOUT: A stoner comedy about a group of Hollywood wannabes that devise the ultimate plan to make it big.

DISTRIBUTORS: Lionsgate Films, Maple Pictures, E-One/Entertainment One

PRODUCTION NOTES: Despite its soporific subject matter, HIGH HOPES is an actual achievement in independent filmmaking. This feature length comedy was entirely rewritten, cast, scheduled and shot within one month's time, with a strict budget. Released in 2009, it is now more  prominently and widely available today as it has quietly evolved into an off the beaten path cult comedy favorite.

ABOUT: Award winning documentary profiling the life of ex-convict turned movie star, role model and father, Danny Trejo.

PRODUCTION NOTES: Imagen Award nominee (touted as the Latin version of the Oscars), CHAMPION. has not not only been in increasing circulation since its initial 2005 release, it has more importantly become an educational tool that has helped alter the lives of at risk youth, and give very real hope to those seeking change both in and out of the penitentiary system.
