Big Screen Entertainment CEO Kimberley Kates has announced that post production is complete on “William Shatner’s Gonzo Ballet,” a documentary chronicling the production of a new ballet based on Shatner’s album, “Has Been.” The critically acclaimed album, produced by Ben Folds, provided renowned choreographer Margo Sappington, of the Milwaukee Ballet, with the inspiration to create the new work “Common People.” “Gonzo Ballet” is the story of that ballet, as well as the story of Shatner’s musical career.
“Gonzo Ballet” is a co-production between BSEG and their Florida production partner, Five Star Productions. “Five Star’s brilliant post production team, led by Kevin Layne, did a phenomenal job in creating an eminently compelling documentary,” stated CEO Kimberley Kates.
“Gonzo Ballet” is already generating interest from networks and distributors, and will be available to the public very soon. The company’s new distribution company “The Independent Film Company,” will be selling the Doc under their new banner.
In other BSEG news, the company’s new horror/thriller, “Babysitter Wanted,” starring Matt Dallas (Kyle XY), Sarah Thompson (Seventh Heaven), Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Bruce Thomas (Legally Blonde) and Kristin Dalton (The Departed) has been accepted into competition by yet another prestigious festival, “Fantasia Fest” in Montreal, Canada.
“Babysitter Wanted” has wowed audiences all over the world, recently winning an audience award in Germany at the Weekend of Fear festival. The film has been an official selection at Sitges, Malaga, Bloody Disgusting Horror Hound Festival, Hollywood Film Festival, to mention a few.
