Junkyard Dog, an independent film, produced by Deanna Shapiro of Huntington Beach for Bass Entertainment Pictures, will be premiering this Sunday, July 25th at The Regency Theater South Coast Village in Santa Ana near South Coast Plaza.
Based on actual events, Junkyard Dog is a gritty, psychological thriller that stars Vivica A. Fox, Brad Dourif along with Innis Casey and, new-comer, Galadriel Stineman. Junkyard Dog headlined the 2010 Women's International Film Festival in Miami where both Ms. Shapiro and Ms. Fox made personal appearances at the event.
Dean Hamilton, owner of Newport Pro, a professional film and television company in Santa Ana, was the cinematographer for key portions of Junkyard Dog.
Deanna Shapiro recently finished producing another film for Bass Entertainment Pictures, Kill Speed, a high-octane, youth oriented, “Top Gun”-meets-“Fast & Furious” type tale. The action-packed drama stars, Robert Patrick, Tom Arnold, Shawnee Smith, Andrew Keegan, Brandon Quinn and Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys), and also features an original song by Carter. Kill Speed set a precedence in filmmaking history as the first film to have a major portion of principal photography shot and directed in mid-air from a “flying” video village while the lead actors performed their scenes while actually flying in specially outfitted, experimental aircraft. Dean Hamilton, was also Kill Speed's Second Unit Director of Photography.
