The Retreat is a feature-length film that follows a small team of creatives as they figure out their personal lives through public means. As actors, Drew and his wife Attie are used to making movies about outer space, until their director Cort puts them on a theatre stage to reinvent his own recently failed relationship by examining their troubled marriage.

We'll be filming in new locations in the north Georgia mountains, as well as making a return to New York and Philadelphia. We've also added talented new members to our team, including concept artist Livio Ramondelli (Transformers, DC Online) who will help us bring the sci-fi elements of our story to life. 

The Retreat requires collaboration from not only our talented cast and crew, but also from you! Any support you can give is immensely helpful, and will be used to make the film a reality.

If you have any questions, or simply want to know more about the project, please contact us. We're easy to get a hold of.
