LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Says who? Remember "Mary Hartman,
Mary Hartman" head writer, Ann Marcus? She comes out swinging, putting her
money on a movie she believes in.
For a total budget of under $196,000, CHANNELS (a philosophical
romantic comedy) was written, produced and directed by Nat Christian, and
made in just 18 days.
After reading through nearly a hundred screenplays (action, horror,
thrillers, etc), Ann Marcus (Emmy Award-winner for "Mary Hartman, Mary
Hartman"; producer of hit TV shows, etc., and grandmother/great-grandmother
of 10) dug into her purse and financed CHANNELS out of love for the story.
A truly independent movie, CHANNELS stars Kim Oja, Nat Christian, Ed
Asner, Joan Van Ark, Taylor Negron, John Kassir, and a group of talented
All worked for ultra low budget wages because they believed in
CHANNELS, a love story.
CHANNELS just completed post-production, and Olliewood Films is already
getting inquiries from interested distributors and film festivals.
Could this touching movie about a man, whose career is about to take
off in a big way but is still emotionally dead until he meets the love of
his life, go all the way?
Our hero has dreams of a passing train, representing "time" passing by,
with an image of himself hesitating to hop on it. Through a "fantastical"
incident, he falls in love with a woman. He comes alive. She experiences
the same real magic. She trusts her instincts, her heart, and is willing to
seize the moment of opportunity and defy the natural logic of things. She
wants to hop on the passing train of time with him. He lets his mind
rationalize, his logic prevails and he pauses. But then he decides, like
her, to seize the moment. The pause was too long. Time doesn't wait. He
loses her and tries to get her back. But is it too late?
Olliewood Films, Inc., the production company, is a new venture formed
to produce quality screenplays.
