“Miracle Man”

As seen in the inspirational documentary smash “The Secret,” Morris Goodman was a successful insurance salesman who crashed an airplane, crushing his spine, leaving him unable to walk, talk, swallow, breathe or move. His doctors believed he would live a short, meaningless life, if he survives at all.

“Lights, Camera, Bullshit”

The movie is about a man that comes back to Memphis in hopes of making films with a local production company, only to face pretentiousness, shyness, paranoia, racism, and apathy. It’s about stirring up all those bad emotional traits that come up during the filmmaking process and attempting to persevere through it all to do what makes filmmakers happy, putting their heart and soul into telling a story.

“Crisis Call 211”

Emmy-winning filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz, creators of HBO’s “Taxicab Confessions” and CBS’s “The Defenders,” are shooting a documentary, “Crisis Call 211.” This film presents powerful, authentic portraits of families in economic turmoil as a result of the country’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, followed by the billions of dollars in budget cuts to America’s social safety net. As the 2012 elections approach, and pressure is mounting to slash even more funding from social services, “Crisis Call 211” puts a human face on the impact of budget cuts to a growing number of families who desperately need help.

“Tomorrow We Disappear”

Since the 1970s Delhi’s magicians, puppeteers, and acrobats have called the tinsel slum, the Kathputli Colony, home. Last year the government issued relocation permits to the colony residents; the slum is to be bulldozed, cleared for development. High-rises and a shopping mall are planned in it’s place. Our story is about what you give up to get the things you think you want. In its modernizing, the world is losing places like Kathputli, and no one notices.

“Coyote Requieum”

Traumatized by a family tragedy the beautiful yet tragic Carmen flees LA, hoping to find some semblance of peace in a world she no longer finds worth living in.

On the desolate roads of the American southwest, Carmen finds herself increasingly haunted by horrific visions of her past, present and future. Before long, her world devolves into pure psychological torture as she fights against the realization that no matter how far she runs, there is no where to hide from the horrors of the most terrifying enemy she has ever faced… her own mind.
