GREEN COBRA is the genre-bending story of a hit-man (aka Life Ending Technician) who details, to a documentary film crew, her rise in a mostly male dominated field. She is being filmed on the backdrop of a typical day on the job; which consists of Russian mob clients, disturbing methods of torture – and maybe one too many bad ex-boyfriends.
To say making a film is a big undertaking would be an understatement. To have one person wear ALL the hats – and wear them WELL – Writer, Director, Producer, Actor, Cinematographer, Editor, Original Music, Sound Editor and Visual Effects – is STUPENDOUS. That’s what Haston McLaren took on – and accomplished – to make his feature film A LIFE IN AUGUST.
Set in an alternate version of 1985, President Reagan has created a penal colony called “the Redlands” in a stretch of empty Arkansas wastelands. The Redlands are for Communists, drug dealers and murderers, and no one dares enter – but for a price, hired mercenaries can locate and retrieve items there. These deadly kamikazes are simply known as ‘WASTERS”.
A GHOST IN HER EYES is an Award Winning short film that goes on a journey with Alex (Tom Procida) – who gets the gift of “seeing” love and loss through the eyes of a blind woman. It mixes the past and the present with a simple, yet powerful message. Written, Directed, Produced and Starring Procida, the film opens up with the poignant sound of piano keys – playing a memory.
