Propellant is excited to launch a mini-slate of two films set for production in 2019 and 2020. This enables us to reduce risk, by spreading it across two films — the investment has double the chance of success; and lower production costs, by leveraging buying power and amortizing costs for certain supplies, equipment, staff, and marketing.

Trust isn’t easy. Especially in the digital age. Add a missing hard drive with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cryptocurrency on it, and you’ll quickly learn who’s on your side and who isn’t. The internet has allowed interactions and relationships to flourish despite (or because of) complete anonymity. How can we resolve these issues of trust especially when identities and currency are now so fluid and can be hidden so well? This issue of trust in the modern era has taken on a completely new (and often scary) dimension. At its heart,The Fence and the Fox is about characters re-discovering trust on a human level and what happens when the internet boogeymen come out to play.
A cryptocurrency crime thriller filming Fall of 2019. Written by Matt Osterman & Mark Mazur.
An elevated horror about a genre that never dies.
There’s a fundamental belief that every human being has an essential right to live. This plays out every day in the press with topics such as capital punishment, euthanasia, Terry Schiavo, Jack Kevorkian, etc. Does a person that’s essentially brain dead with no chance of recovery have the right to suck valuable resources from the system? What if that person also begins to literally feed off the living? Fans of the creative genre aspects of Let Me In, The Witch, Hereditary, and The Babadook, and those who appreciate sophisticated adult themes should appreciate the tone, drama, and emotional payoff of She Sleeps.
Filming in 2020. Written by Matt Osterman & Frank Foster-Bolton.
