Produce is a feature-length film about a self-destructive former pro ball player who is given a serious lesson in living life with courage when he befriends a grocery store clerk with Down syndrome.

Our Team

We've been able to put together a small but dedicated group of talented filmmakers who bring great experience from a group of critically acclaimed independent films. Our recent films include: The Lifegaurd (2013 Sundance Film Festival Selection,) and Fruitvale Station (Winner of Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.) We've also been fortunate to have the support of local filmmaker Gill Holland who has joined our project as a producer also. Gill has an extensive history of producing films but also a reputation for being a community leader. Truly, everyone working on this movie is involved because they believe in the importance of using film to help spread awareness about mental disabilities and tell a story of compassion and faith.

We already have the support from the DSIAM (Down Syndrome in Arts and Media Organization), the Albert Pujols Family Foundation, Down Syndrome of Louisville, Dreams with Wings, Best Buddies - Kentucky, Angels in Disguise and we have avid support from the Mayor of Louisville, Louisville Slugger and the Louisville Bats.

Tiger Lili.jpg
Tiger Lili is a new screenplay by Brandi Alyssa Young set to become a short film sometime next year. A story about a young woman named Lili Jackson who has endured domestic violence and how she emerges from her troubled past. Produced by Baystar Productions, filming will begin at the end of this year. They are still casting for the male lead and crew members.  

Brandi is an accomplished actor and has several films to her credit as well as theatre, dance, and singing.  See her credits at IMDb.com:  Brandi Alyssa Young  She was nominated for Best Performance in a Short Film - Young Actress at the  Young Artist Awards in Los Angeles for her performance in Broken Pieces where she plays an autistic girl.  Brandi also worked on the script and acted in The Silver Key co-written with her mother Sally Young and Patricia Raven.



I talked with Brandi this morning and here's what she had to say about the screenplay.

"It is a short about a girl who has been abused and she finally decides that enough is enough, and she is ultimately the one that can change things. She refuses to be meek and quiet any longer and is determined to make the negative into a positive. So, she makes a decision that sets her on a path that will eventually bring her to her destiny." 


What was her inspiration?  It seems that it came as an idea that was cast aside at a 48 Hour Film Project session. Writing it was a stream of consciousness, if you will, where everything came easily and time flew by..

"A few weeks ago, I was involved with the 48 Hour Film Project again. And this story came from a combination of ideas we had during the brainstorming session.  The screenwriter decided on another path, but I couldn't stop thinking about everything. And I was so inspired, after being up for all that time, drove 3 hours home and I sat down and wrote half of it in 3 hours and then died from exhaustion, then first thing when I awoke wrote for another 3 hours and there was Tiger Lili! It just flowed out of me, one of the easiest stories I have ever written."
