MASS CHAOS
(Smat Movie Poster)
Mass Chaos (working title) is a religious comedy focusing on an ensemble of flawed characters going to church. The screenplay has been workshopped and is complete, and a sizzle reel has been filmed and attached to a pitch look book. For sizzle reel access, please see the CONTACT page.

$50,000 has already been verbally committed toward the project’s budget, and the script has been written for a budget ranging from $150,000 to 500K. Hopeful casting for the lead includes a number of A-list stars. The film would be marketed toward a faith-based audience, with opportunities to do special screenings at churches as well.
