-- Charlie Boy Productions™
, A Full Service-American Film and Entertainment Production Company founded by Nicholas Givanio, one of Hollywood’s Brightest Entrepreneurial stars, is hard at work doing in a few months what might take others a few years. Not only trying to change the industry of film making but also pioneer the innovation that goes along with it. By matching together independent artists from all art forms and entertainment and bringing them under one umbrella. “Cutting-edge innovation matched with the most creative people on the planet. All forms of Art and Artists at one's fingertips. Big studios make it so hard for Indie Filmmakers to thrive, hopefully I can change that by uniting all Indie Art forms and Artists from all around the world,” stated Nicholas Givanio.
Currently they are in the middle of their debut project JOHNNY GAMES™©, a short film prologue to an Epic Action/Thriller Trilogy - Plot outline is as follows:
A look inside the psychotic/twisted/
gruesome mind of American's ex-top assassin/gone contract killer for the L.A.Organized Crime Family. A man torn between "Good" and "Evil" that tragically loses all the "Good' in his life and leaves him no choice but to do what he does best, which spirals him into a lost soul that will stop at nothing to get redemption. A man who effortlessly takes life but at the same time the audience are compelled to have compassion for him. With twists and turns around every corner, this action-packed adventure is a thrill ride from start to finish that will leave you with chills and wanting more. Death has never been so easy. There are NO Limits when a trained assassin wants redemption! The short film is slated for 2014 release in all the major Film Festivals.
Nicholas Givanio not only stars as JOHNNY GAMES™© but he is credited as Creator/Writer/
Producer alongside award-winning Writer/Director Ignatius Fischer, founder of Witness Pictures. “The guy is amazing, what can I say, the way he can take nothing and turn it into a masterpiece is truly a gift. He embodies the core spirit of Charlie Boy Productions™
,” stated Nicholas Givanio.
When asked what are those core values, Nicholas Givanio stated, “Charlie Boy Productions™
was founded on these 3 principles:
All Artist's, Art Forms, and Creativity will not be left unmasked, creating something from nothing. Who are we to judge? We are Making DREAMS the World's REALITY. By molding together theses 3 principle ideas, we believe we will make the best art and entertainment possible by creating true human emotional responses based on what we create. It all starts with relationships and people-I am a true believer that I am in the people business-and I love people and I am gifted at building long-lasting relationships, it's not always about the now, like a lot of bottom line companies think.”
Not bad for a 33 year old Ex-Corporate Executive turned Actor. Still the biggest question remains: how can this young gun take on Hollywood and win when many have tried and failed. When asked, his reply was quite entertaining and enlightening - ”First and foremost-free social media-[chuckle]
. Seriously though, by sticking to Charlie Boy Productions™
core principles, every day striving for absolute perfection in everything I encounter, by surrounding myself with people that do and feel the same, my team and I will work harder and longer than anyone else to do it right. We had 2000 submissions for SAG casting in 2 days on this project-it's only a short film! Do I seemed worried?! As for the others who have tried and failed -none of them had the team I have. This is only the beginning.”
Those are some bold statements by a first-time Indie Filmmaker. One thing is certain, Nicholas does not lack confidence. Hats off for what you're trying to accomplish. Best of luck to Charlie Boy Productions™
