Meet our Founders

Paul Parnell

Paul is a creative storyteller and resourceful filmmaker with skills in every area of the movie making process. He is a skilled graphic designer, visual effects arts, and has a hunger to make movies. Realizing that making a feature film didn't have to cost 1 million dollars, or $100,000 or even $1,000 with the right resources, team and vision (and of course being willing to put in a heck of a lot of unpaid work) he decided that nothing would stop this dream from coming true. So he will Write, Produce, and Direct his first Feature Film on $0 budget (or as close as possible) this year.
