True Skin By Stephan Zlotescu

We’re very excited to be working with such a talented director; his much talked about short film is a testament to his talent.

True Skin is set in the not-too-distant future where augmentation is “in”. Our story’s hero, Kay, can’t afford to augment in the U.S., so he heads to the black market of Bangkok where anything goes. While there, he gets a hold of a mysterious chip and suddenly finds himself on the run from various dangerous forces.

“Less than a week after the sci-fi short True Skin had hit the web, Warner Brothers pre-emptively swiped it off the table, picking it up for Harry Potter’s David Heyman to produce.”

Stephan Zlotescu has since started development on two other features, namely with Paramount and Siren. He has also done some music video work for Kanye West, Jack White, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce.

Turtle Power: Randall Lobb’s Doc To Be Released By Paramount

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the introduction of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle indie comic originally created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird.

To retrace that journey, Paramount is releasing Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a 98-minute documentary directed by our very own Randall Lobb.

The doc is an in-depth look at a franchise that has made an estimated five billion dollars in the thirty years since two young, wannabe comic artists watching TV one-upped each other into creating one of the most popular and beloved entertainment properties in history.

The official release is scheduled four days after the Michael Bay produced reboot of the feature’s tentpole release, August 8, 2014.

You can see it now on Netflix.
