Dana Offenbach and Mark W Campbell have partnered up to launch the production company CinemaStreet.
The new venture will focus on developing and producing independent features in the low to mid-budget range. Funding will come from a range of sources.
Campbell is a former Wall Street investment banker and venture capitalist who began investing in and developing film and television projects several years ago. Offenbach is an independent producer of features, TV and commercials who produced the 2003 comedy Love & Orgasms, among others.
The inaugural slate includes Underworld writer-creator Kevin Grevioux’ feature directorial debut The Pale Horsemen, a supernatural thriller based on the graphic novel of the same name in which six anonymous hitmen gather for the reading of their mentor’s will. WME is packaging the project.
Screenwriter Christopher Scott Cherot’s edgy 1970s-set drama Original Provisionals centres on the efforts of two Vietnam veterans to mentor a group of inner city children at summer camp.
The Untitled Shelly Waxman Story is based on the true story of the Assistant US Attorney who uncovered the truth behind the murder of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton.
And One ForAll is Ron Kanecke and Piper Hickman’s drama that weaves together the stories of four inseparable young friends faced with a devastating reality one summer and fast-forwards 50 years later to the predicament of four twenty-something life-long friends trapped in a Kentucky coal mine.
