Coming Soon from Brotherhood Productions!

October 9, 2009

We just put up a brand new “preview website” of Brotherhood Productions!  Check it out  at http://www.brotherhoodproductions.tv   As of right now, it contains contact information, producer bio’s, future production info, and a link to our blog.  Most importantly, it has the new trailer for “Johnny’s Leaving,” which was cut by Kristen Williamson!  The full version of our website will premiere on Thanksgiving, containing past projects, cast and crew interviews, future project news, and access to project websites.

I also met recently with Kali and Owen Rucker (fellow producer and DIT on “Johnny’s Leaving) about a script they had recently finished titled “Tag Team.”  Their script follows two young adults finding each other through their friends, underground hip-hop and very obscure sexual behavior.  Kali and Owen take the directorial chair with production starting at the end of 2009.

A schedule has also been established for “Single Number” as well.  The film is currently in pre-production and production will begin in mid-April.  Stay tuned!  Two more events are being planned within the next 4 months!

Post-Production Update

September 14, 2009

I am very pleased to announce we are very close to picture lock!  Saw Kali’s new edit of “Johnny’s Leaving,” and it looks more than incredible!  Rich, the crew and myself were astonished with the new cut.  Kali is truly a talented Director and Editor!

Also would like to announce (if I haven’t already) that the Seigler Brothers will be scoring the film.  Jonathan Seigler (the older brother of the two) is a very talented pianist and has graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 2008.  His younger brother Jacob is also a budding musician and record producer, primarily for his work with the music group “Ipazzi.”  Having the brothers collaborate is definitely going to produce a wonderful score.  Did I mention they are also from South Orange?

Keep your eyes open for drafts of the poster and dvd cover designed by Chris Campbell.  A new Brotherhood Productions website is also in the works so stay tuned!

Its Been A While…

July 20, 2009

Dear Brotherhood Viewers,

Sorry it has been a while since our last update.  Production on “Johnny’s Leaving” did go quite smoothly, but post-production has taken some time.  Since wrapping in early May, Owen Rucker (our Post-Production supervisor and editor) had to leave the project due to time constraints.  Paul Battaglini (Producer and co-owner) has been living in San Francisco to work on a television show for Animal Planet, “Weird, True & Freaky.”

But just because of slight setbacks, doesn’t mean we have stopped working.  Kali has now taken over the editing process; cutting the film he so wonderfully directed.  Jon Flores (on-set sound) is going to handle the sound mixing as well.

Paul is working exceptionally hard on “Weird, True & Freaky,” and might be forced to relocate from the New York area to the San Francisco Bay Area.  Because the “Brotherhood” bond will never be broken, instead of abandoning the company, Brotherhood Productions has been planning for possible expansion.

Richard is currently handling all business on the east coast while Paul is away.  But before Paul left in mid-June, Brotherhood Productions had found its next two projects: “Single Number” and “Saturday Detention.”

“Single Number” follows Samuel Malloy, a lonely IT customer service operator whose parents have recently died.  All alone from family and love, Samuel is mysteriously greeted by Grabriella, a pseudo-paranormal figure that hopes to help him find love in his life.  “Single Number” is written by Brotherhood Productions co-owner Paul Battaglini and being produced by Richard Wyche.

Richard Wyche has also written “Saturday Detention,” which will be produced alongside “Single Number.”  “Saturday Detention” follows high school student Brandon, who finds himself amongst eternal boredom in the epitome of school punishment.  Throughout serving his detention, Brandon realizes his character defects and faults through his peer Griff, who is there for eerily similar circumstances.

Both films are in pre-production and to be released at the same time.  Release dates are TBA.  If you have any questions, comments or to inquire more information, feel free to e-mail Brotherhood Productions at info@brotherhoodproductions.tv.  Thank you and we hope you come back!
