We're looking for new and promising talent in the indie movie world! We're talkin short films, music videos, student projects, etc.

Are you gonna take the rights to my work?

No, you retain full ownership of you work. We just want to show it to people.

Top Right Corner Presents: All's Fair


The production arm of Take247, Top Right Corner, LLC is currently working in post on All's Fair, a 16 minute short that the company shot in May 2006. Following the story of up and coming actress Miranda Barrett as she falls sharply from fame following a scandal, All's Fair is billed as "a Romance with a Twist."

Post Production has been a struggle has a always due to NYU's demanding workload and other TRC projects. (Notably their next film "In Midair" - stay tuned for future posts)Sound Design is underway and in the more than capable hands of one Ryan Patch. With composition still in its early stages, stayed tuned for the release date of the film.

Superbowl Commercial

On November 5th, I shot a commercial on 16mm film that I hope to enter in Doritos Superbowl Commercial contest.
The commercial is a recreation of the famous "4th and 26" play between Donavon McNabb and Freddie Mitchell during the Playoffs in 2004. The whole idea is to have an overly dramatic play with NFL Films type music, but to cast normal, everday people as the player.

The Lightyears come to America!



Recently, Dan and I have had the privilage of seeing The Lightyears in concert. They are awesome! If you've never heard of them, they are from the UK and are on the rise. The London Times has called them, "The hottest unsigned band." They truly are.



The Lightyears



They have recently recorded their travels across the globe and may be interested in showcasing some of their material on take247.com! Fun Stuff. This is really a great band and I hope you'll check them out at www.TheLightyears.com.




“By the end of the set you realise that your face hurts and you wonder why… and then you realise it's because you've been smiling for over an hour.”

On set at the zombie shoot.





The movie was shot in black and white. It's a spoof 1950s style government public service announcement about the zombie threat to democracy. Riveting.
