New York City celebrated the world premiere of “The Big Break,” a 15-minute, high octane mini-movie satire on Hollywood. The film was written, directed and produced by Gil Freston and stars David Arquette. It was presented by VICE Media.
Notable attendees included producer Loren Herbert, actor David Shabtai, filmmaker Gil Freston, producer Jack Heston, actors Waris Ahluwalia, and Michelle Herbet.
The mini-movie applies a blockbuster film’s production quality to an intense storyline paying homage to 1990s classic films like “The Player” and “Heat and True Romance.” The film was screened as an official selection at the 22nd Annual LA Shorts International Film Festival 2018.
“The Big Break” was produced by Gil Freston, Jack Heston, Matthew Brag and Loren Herbert alongside Executive Producers Will Meldman, Taylor Vandegrift and David Shabtai. Freston has written and directed numerous commercials and branded short-form. He is currently developing a show with FX Networks and is entering pre-production on his next feature film “EDGE OF FEAR”, a psycho/thriller horror feature film that will be shot in international locations beginning in May 2019.
