-- Brannon Bates is a native of small-town Winder, Georgia and has been working out of Los Angeles for 7 years. He began as a stand-in for one of the Baldwin brothers and now he's standing up on his own this year. Just months apart he will be releasing a rock music CD with 16 head bopping songs, as well as a captivating full length feature film.
The film, Payback Jack (http://www.imdb.com/
, is a Noir action thriller with a strong love story at its backbone. Brannon directed and starred in the film as well as doing the cgi effects. The story is based on rookie detective Jack Wall who is taking on his first case with the help of CIA agent Dupont, played by Nicole Beuhrer (Trippin' 2012). The cast is full of several up and coming Hollywood actors including Maria Olsen who was ready to jump in after seeing a short film directed by Bates which left her speechless. "He is a true visionary and his style and story-telling is so visual he is starting a renaissance in film. After seeing his work it makes you want to run straight out the door and start making a movie". Payback Jack is set to be released to VOD fall 2012.
Bates wouldn't be recognized in his alter-ego character in which he is a decorated musician named Brand-0. Considered one of the best hard rock CD's in decades, this head banging collection of songs keep the heart beating and the foot tapping. The EP is available now on Google Play and the full CD will be available in just a few months everywhere. http://play.google.com/store/music/album/Brand_0_Brand0?i...
