From millions of internet views and fan demand worldwide comes 4 Reelz, LLC, a new independent film and television production company from the creative team of Bullcrank Productions. 4 Reelz begins preproduction on an animated pilot and a comedic feature film January 2010. When speaking of work done by 4 Reelz’s creative team, “Watching that DVD made me a fan,” says Mark Ordesky, former president of Fine Line Features, “It reminded me of the irreverent spirit and madcap energy of my friend Peter Jackson’s early 16-millimeter films.” Because of his belief in 4 Reelz, Mark Ordesky signed on as executive producer of the animated pilot, the same capacity he held for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
4 Reelz, LLC is a start-up enterprise engaged in the development and production of motion picture films for theatrical release and television series for primetime viewing. 4 Reelz’s mission is to create series and films that entertain using humor found in everyday absurdity. 4 Reelz will create one television series and four feature length films over the next four years, with budgets ranging from $40,000 to $1M.
With Marisa Zakaria as business head and Larry Longstreth, Aaron Longstreth, and Jacob Drake, formerly of Bullcrank Productions, leading the creative team, 4 Reelz will continue to meet the needs of Bullcrank’s established audience. Because of the popular internet success of the creative team’s previous ventures, including Batman’s Gonna Get Shot in the Face- IFC’s 4th best short film of 2006, the Company perceives a large presold audience. 4 Reelz is currently seeking investors.
