Following the success of a collaborative virtual table read, creative partners team up to produce more film and television content.
DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Three Denver-based entertainment industry pros are joining forces with a shared commitment to bringing viewers thought-provoking and downright fun content. The company, https://www.fireflyrev.com/ builds on the success of its remote table read project live streamed last September as a fundraiser for entertainment workers impacted by the COVID-19 shutdowns.
Laura Carson, Krista Gano and Pam Renall produced the enhanced table read of an original award-winning screenplay titled “Invisible” with a star-studded cast including Oscar-winner Jim Rash (Community, Downhill), Edi Patterson (The Righteous Gemstones, Knives Out), Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth, MacGruber), and Tony Cavalero (The Righteous Gemstones, School of Rock). Carson and Gano co-wrote the comedy script and plan to produce a full-length feature film as the new production company’s first project.
Renall, who played a role in the table read, said, “I’m honored to partner with these amazing women. Each of us has decades of experience in different areas of the industry, and I’m particularly excited about producing Invisible- it makes me laugh every time I read the script.”
After winning Best Screenplay from Women in Film and Media Colorado (WIFMCO), the script was further developed, and the virtual table read production staged. Carson said, “This is a hilarious action-packed comedy that offers a great opportunity for a female superhero to save the day.” The story revolves around a brilliant research scientist, Dr. Pam Perdue, who wakes up on her 40th birthday to find she has become invisible.
Krista Gano says, “We couldn’t be happier to announce this new venture. While over 51% of audiences are women, we only represent about 24% of our industry. We know there are new stories and perspectives to explore, and that this team of female filmmakers is ready to do it.”
