FULL-LENGTH FEATURE

Back in 2005 Aria Pictures self-produced their first project titled PAINT. A 19 minute short that was a spec project to see if they could complete and deliver a watchable product — and they did. It sold world-wide and people were asking for a second.

Plans were in the works to do so, but time slipped away and the cast grew older and far apart making Part 2 even more difficult since the story line picks up 2 months after the first, not 3 years, and even though we had top names attached and a whopping budget, it went on the shelf waiting.

11 years later and many, many productions later, Aria Pictures has decided to dust it off and do the full-length version, basically starting over with new actors, more characters, many rewrites, and with more experience in film production, PAINT will be re-realized on the BIGGER screen.

Okay, so it did not go world-wide — the first time!

Introduction

Our involvement in productions covers all three phases, as well as, writing and marketing — we have a flare for creating the story and spreading the word, but our biggest asset and our expertise is the polishing in the editing room and post-production — this is where we make it shine.

Most projects we work on are ours from the beginning to the end; others are scattered amidst the production phases such as CAMERA, MUSIC, AUDIO, and EDITING — but no matter what our involvement is we give 100%.
