Logline: A Ghostbusters Documentary, About Ghostbusters Fans.

Elevator Pitch: 
“Ghostheads” is a documentary that explores the extreme side of the Ghostbusters fandom. Within the documentary, there will be storylines mixed in with interviews from Ghostbuster fans all over the world, such as U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, Italy, and the UK, to name a few places. Robin Shelby (who played Slimer in “Ghostbusters II”) is narrating the film.

Production Team:
Director/Writer: Brendan Mertens

Producer: Tommy Avallone (“I Am Santa Claus”)

About the Film:
“Ghostheads” is more than “Hey, isn’t Ghostbusters great?!” kind of documentary. “Ghostheads” contains countless humanizing stories that will connect with audiences about camaraderie, overcoming obstacles, and the idea that no one should ever feel alone or isolated.

Current Status: In Production.
