Tell readers more about your business:
M8M is a film production company owned and operated by Elizabeth & Seth Hall. We believe in filmmaking as a collaboration of community. A way for everyone involved to use their gifts and talents to play an integral part of the story telling process. We are focused on making high quality films on a low budget, while telling the best story possible. Our films are designed to not only entertain, but challenge the viewer to think & grow with compassion & love.
We are working on a short documentary about the friendships between one young child with autism and his typically developing peers.
In October, we start principal photography on our short film “HORSE”, an original short film about a boy and his father where the father has to face his fears and redefine what it means to be a man by entering a neighborhood father/son HORSE tournament.
We are also working in collaboration with Highway 29 Motion Pictures on a web drama “The Hive”. Go to www.catchthebuzz.tv to watch our first episode. In November, we head to NYC to premiere a HWY29 feature film called “Swimming in a Lake of Fire”. Another feature film, “Esposito”, has premiered in Charlotte & Greensboro and is ready to hit the market and festival circuit. Also a feature film “Elephant Sighs”, starring Ed Asner, is wrapping in post production and should be available soon.
