Film Fervor: Episode 88 – Gatekeepers

Joey Sorrentino of My Little Rascal Productions is a very exciting person to watch out for in the future. His breakthrough film Gatekeepers is about to launch an Indiegogo campaign to get the initial funding needed to shoot the amazing project. He has the right attitude for indie film, with wanting to put his project and his cast and crew’s name up on the big screen in theaters to enjoy the overall film experience.

This is one of those stories that you just have to love, if you’re into the bootstrapped indie films. Joey and his wife reached out to actors and crew on Craigslist and got a remarkable amount of people who, surprisingly, not only could act but also were highly motivated to see the film come to life. Even their trailer is a story of simple perseverance and audacity, as they had no real experience or knowledge on how to do any of the things they needed to do.

The best part about all of this is that they had the drive and motivation to make the film, the courage to step out into the light and to broadcast their intention to the world that they were going to make this production come to life. It just goes to show you what a little courage and a whole lot of ambition can do for you. Check out the trailer and, of course, support them on IndieGogo as soon as it goes live!

Gatekeepers Info:

Twenty years ago, a team of scientists attempted to contact an ancient race of beings. They failed, but managed to inadvertently allow one into our world. That’s when the killings began.

Twenty years later, Detective Mike Gregg is coming apart at the seams. His devotion to alcohol and one nighters cost him the only thing that he truly cares about: his family. Now he’s up to his neck in dead girls, each picked apart in gruesome fashion. But when Richard Lyles arrives, a strange man with an even stranger past, to explain what the Detective is really chasing, even a veteran homicide investigator like Mike Gregg isn’t prepared for the nightmare coming his way.

And, of course Twitter:

Be sure to check back often because there will be some awesome updates in the very near future!

  2. It’s totally my pleasure. I was so excited to get to talk to Joey about the production and to see just how impressive your level of commitment is to the project.

    A lot of time, I see people who don’t know how to do something and they let that stop them. Not you two. You dive in, bootstrap, and make your dream come to life.

    That’s indie film at it’s finest!

  3. Great job! This trailer is amazing. I can’t wait to see the movie in its entirety. So proud of my Aunt Lisa and Uncle Joe….their dreams are going to come true! My uncle is an amazing writer…..good things to follow!!!
