Alan Brown's new film IN THE STUDIO launches Kickstarter campaign!!

Hi FIVE DANCES supporters, 

 I’m excited to announce that we’re going into production on my newest feature film, IN THE STUDIO, later this fall, and are launching the Kickstarter page today. 

 The film is a psychological thriller set in a Brooklyn artist’s studio. We’ve got an amazing cast, lead by the wonderful NATHAN DARROW (Meechum on “House of Cards”), Obie-Award winner SUSAN POURFAR (Becky Flynn on “Scandal”), JAMES MARTINEZ (“Breaking Bad”), and Tony-nominee KATHLEEN CHALFANT. 

 Derek McKane, who did such a gorgeous job shooting FIVE DANCES (as well as PRIVATE ROMEO and SUPERHEROES) is once again our cinematographer. And Craig Weiseman, who edited both PRIVATE ROMEO and SUPERHEROES is onboard as well! Stephanie Holbrook once again did the casting. 

 I’d really love for you to check out IN THE STUDIO’s Kickstarter page to learn more about the film, and to consider supporting it. We’ve got some very special rewards this time around.

Early support is really crucial to build momentum, so if you're able to contribute now, please do! And please email and tweet it, share it on Facebook with your friends! 

 Thanks so, so much for your continued support. I couldn’t make my films without you. And I promise that IN THE STUDIO is a film you’ll be proud to be a part of. 

 With gratitude,
