Their ambition and extreme success thus far deserves an audience to see the extraordinary measures they are taking to get the project off the ground.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2010
British teen filmmakers, Adrian Bliss, Benjamin Robbins and Toby Stubbs, whose unique film funding efforts landed them the support from famous actors such as Jude Law, Stephen Fry, Rowan Atkinson and Sir Ian McKellen, have teamed up with former teen entrepreneur and reality TV producer John Magennis and his company Magennis Entertainment to develop a reality show documenting their lives during the pre-production and production of the screen adaptation of Clovis Dardentor (a forgotten Jules Verne novel) and their businesses BuyACredit.com and Devlin14 Films Ltd.
John Magennis the producer behind the reality show concept is a former teen entrepreneur and principal of Magennis Entertainment, a newly created firm focusing on the development of original reality concepts. Magennis has worked in various aspects of reality television from development to casting and producing and has worked on a slate of reality shows with UK roots such as Supernanny, World's Strictest Parents and It's Me or The Dog. Specific to the project John states, “As a former teen entrepreneur I can understand the obstacles that these boys have faced trying to start a business, I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to start this particular business venture. Their ambition and extreme success thus far deserves an audience to see the extraordinary measures they are taking to get the project off the ground. It’s my intent to work with them in securing a television network in the US or abroad to document their efforts. Their lives are simply too amazing to remain unseen.” When word of a potential reality show got around to some of the famous celebrity supporters of the film the idea was almost immediately embraced. Stephen Fry, a producer and actor attached to the film, has already agreed to appear with with the British boy wonders on the reality show.
BuyACredit.com is a business the young filmmakers started in order to raise money for their feature film. By selling the end credits for as little as $10 and allowing those helping to fund the movie become a producer alongside other famous producers it is helping close the gap on the movie's $2 Million budget. The reality show will take the viewers on a journey with the teens as they work in their London production office finalizing funding for the film, interactions with their celebrity supporters, travel to New York and LA and eventually the behind the scenes of the production of the film. When all others say it can’t be done, especially for 3 teenagers, these teens say “Watch me, we’re already doing it”.
