How does an independent film make it's way out into the world of marketing? The traditional Hollywood formula says that you have to have "Star Power," i.e. a Johnny Depp or a Julia Roberts.
So, here's our star power: Nelson Franklin
is a young and rising actor making a name for himself in HBO's
, and in the new hit CBS series, THE MILLERS
enters her third season starring in ABC's hit series, SCANDAL
has appeared in TED
and has quite the television resumé. And Alex Kingston
is well-known to E.R. and
fans the world over.
Here's where we break from tradition--we're willing to deed five acres of land in Taos, New Mexico to one lucky viewer of GHOST PHONE. We've developed land in Taos for years and use the money to fund independent film projects. This has made us one of the biggest supporters of the arts in Taos, a community known for beautiful art and land. There you go. That's our biggest star.
The crazy thing is, we're only getting started. We've realized that it's almost as much work to distribute one film as it is fifty films.
To that end, we've resurrected the Taos Talking Pictures Festival
with three goals:
- To re-establish the festival locally.
- To establish an online viral film festival.
- To establish a unique distribution cooperative for independent filmmakers.
Our belief is that a film festival should serve both the filmmakers and the community hosting it. We therefore invite filmmakers to join us in:
- Unique crowdfunding opportunities.
- Traditional theatrical releases.
- Worldwide television premieres on HBO, IFC, Sundance, FX, and more.
- Video on demand distribution on Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, and more.
We want this to serve as a model for cooperative success. Each filmmaker acquires an ownership stake in the company. Through everyone's combined social media networks, we build and expand an audience for cutting-edge independent features, documentaries, and serials.
We've given away land before, and we'll continue to. Watch a movie and win some land
, or join our film cooperative. Either way, you, too, can become a part of the Taos Filmmakers's Colony, with neighbors like Chris Eyre

Nobody believes William Pierce. Not the cops, not the shrinks, not even his own mother. And why should they? You see, Will has a direct hotline to the afterworld: his dead fiancée's cell phone. Here's the problem: the dead only talk to him.
In this dark romantic comedy, Will straddles this world and the next, jumping through hurdles to appease those who have crossed over, in an attempt to exonerate himself from a murder charge, prove his sanity, and find closure with his fiancée. Yes, she's dead, but she'll go to any lengths to make their relationship work, including asking Will to do the unthinkable: join her on the other side.
