Alliance Group Entertainment Moves Forward With Latest Film Project, âLocker 541â
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2006
Due to the success of their last project, âPartners,â â a film short that Alliance Group Entertainment acquired from maverick Director Geo Santini and is currently in pre-production as a feature, entitled âHotel California,â Alliance Group Entertainment is moving forward and utilizing the same formula for Geo Santiniâs latest project, âLocker 541,â which is in developmental stages to be turned into the full-length feature entitled, âThe Hustle,â by Alliance Group Entertainment.
âLocker 541â is a highly intelligent and character driven action piece about a pair of super-sophisticated but small-time con men who find themselves drawn into an international scandal that reaches to the highest levels of business and politics. The short is already being praised as a hip, slick, modern day version of âThe Sting.â
The âLocker 541â film short drew upon the talents of many established actors, including Robert Miano (âDonnie Brasco,â) and Gary Daniels (âSubmerged,â âDie Hard 4â, âWitness to a Killâ) and Jason Graham (âDreamgirlsâ).
Looking to capture the attention of Industry insiders, and cause a studio bidding war similar to the negotiations for âPartners,â Alliance hosted a private, and exclusive screening of âLocker 541â on October 9, 2006âwhich was attended by top film executives and agents. âOur goal is to work with young, cutting-edge Directors to produce films that are quality, and that will compete successfully with any major studio filmâ says Alliance CEO Mike Karkeh.
Director Geo Santini is a prime example of Alliance Group Entertainmentâs ability to recognize talent and work to develop successful projects. Geo Santiniâknown for his work as a music video Directorâhas worked with Alliance on several projects including, âPartners,â and the big screen adaptation of the short, entitled âHotel California.â Santini also directed âLocker 541.â âTeaming up with writer R. Ellis Frasier, I took his feature film script, cut it down to 30 pages, and shot it as a short. I admit, it was a little ambitious, but I wanted to create a short film with a full story, a series of locations, and an ensemble cast. We had 5 days to shoot 13 locations, and a minimum amount of resources, but we made it work.â Explains Geo Santini.
Alliance recently finished production on a horror film, entitled âLake Dead,â and a television pilot, entitled âThe Executives.â The company will begin production in the near future on the films âFarm Houseâ and âConfessions of a Pit Fighter, 2.â
