A 6K Cinematic Production
The Electric Man is a science fiction, philosophical journey, with a dash of psychedelic funk, a horror adjacent sprinkling, a splash of vampirism, a dab of the undead, and romantic comedy at its heart
We recently had a private cast and crew screening at the Art Theatre in Long Beach. The movie is now in the final stages of Post-Production!
When Trace McNeil experiences a 12,000 volt shock, his life becomes a psychedelic blur of reality and fantasy in this science fiction drama.
Like nothing you’ve seen before. That’s the goal. The original idea was a science fiction drama, but the result has been called “a vampire, zombie, sci-fi , philosophical, Armageddon, romantic comedy, all-in-one.” And, yes, while it has elements of each, it is still something very different.
Our goal is to make something independent of the Hollywood studio system that has a wide appeal to mass audiences.
The Electric Man is unique in its story telling and genre-blending; however, its appeal is filled with immensely human needs, wants, desires, and emotions.
Featuring Tom Sizemore, Eric Roberts, and Vernon Wells!
You’ve seen Sizemore in Natural Born Killers, Saving Private Ryan and many other great films! Eric Roberts is an icon of Hollywood having earned an Oscar nomination in Runaway Train and been in hundreds of movies including The Dark Knight and The Expendables. Vernon Wells is a legend of action movies, especially for his roles in Commando and The Road Warrior!
We have crowdfunded six feature films. multiple shorts, two docs and a web series. Our movies have won more than 40 awards, played in dozens of festivals and received widespread distribution. We have worked with two Academy Award winning actors and a bevy of well-known names and faces!
Our multi-award movie SOCIAL DISTANCE, entirely produced in quarantine is now in wide release. Later in 2021, we have two additional releases scheduled for worldwide distribution – VIRUS OF THE UNDEAD and FORGOTTEN LEGACY (which premiered at the famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood).
