We have our sights set on bigger things! Rebel Filmworks is a small, local production company aiming to make our first feature film. The Rebels is budgeted @ $1.5M and we're ideally looking to film in Minnesota and use local talent. By using a high-quality trailer, we're giving ourselves the best chance when we pitch for financing.
It's the story of a Rochester, MN basketball prodigy who's the next Superstar. Since grade school, Johnny Quentin was destined for greatness. That was, until that fateful day in college.
On the brink of leading his team to theri first NCAA tournament, disaster strikes. In a pivotal moment of his biggest game, he lets his emotions get the best of him and he lashes out & strikes a referee. He's kicked out of the NCAA and the NBA won't touch him. The game he loves deserts him. Johnny is lost and will never play basketball again. Or so he thinks.
Fast forward 14 years and the struggling semi-pro Rochester Rebels need help in the worst way. Their one shot at survival is to convince Johnny, the former legend, to help them. It's the last chance for them both. Does Johnny still have what it takes to lead a team to the promised land? Will the team, and the city, embrace him? Only time will tell.

We are working on a project titled "MINNEAPOLICE". It is one of many steps that we are taking to bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement. All of our projects focus on bringing the action to the public eye. There are many productions going on around our great state but none are seen as we are driving through our communities. We want to change that. We feel if the action is taking place in public view, it does something wonderful and productive for the community, the state, the cast involved, and our local film industry.
