Check out the Women Making A Scene (WOMAS) website to see the amazing teams that competed from all over the world as a part of the WOMAS Feature Film Competition back in May, 2019. Even though Team Rebelution Films was not a semi-finalist in the competition (kudos to all the incredible 21 teams that were chosen!), our opening scene from Extended Stay was screened on August 5th, 2019 in La Mesa, CA as part of the Local Films that were chosen (only 26 out of 121 teams were given this honor!). We also found out that Jessica Connel, our amazing DP on our opening scene from Extended Stay was nominated for Best Cinematography, how cool is that?!
Team Rebelution Films is excited to be teaming up with some of the most forward-thinking dance choreographers, stunt coordinators and fight choreographers to bring three bold and unique tales to life through dance, movement, combat/fight sequences, and stunts.
Team Rebelution Films is an award-winning Independent Film Production Company based in Los Angeles. It was originally created for the 48 Hour Film Project by Esther Mira, Poonam Basu, and Austin Dragovich. The three joined forces in 2017, united by their mutual love for film, a hunger for more diverse narratives, and the desire to create the absolute best film they possibly could in just 48 hours. They assembled a diverse team of passionate, like-minded professionals, and the race was on! Currently, more than half of Team Rebelution identifies as female, and includes members from diverse ethnic backgrounds, as well as members who are part of the LGBTQIA community. We are so proud of our team's hard work, dedication, and undeniable talent!
Here is our 5th short film Inn Communication. It is the inspiration behind our first feature film Extended Stay. When technology fails in the midst of a fight, a young woman must weave her way through a hotel searching for the one thing that can fix the mess she’s found herself in.
