Scatter Brothers Productions is a full service commercial, video, television, and motion picture production company based in St. Petersburg, Florida. Co-Owners/Producers Doug Tschirhart and Ben Daniele are excited to announce they have not just survived but “thrived” during the past two Covid film “lock down” years, and have added a production office in Atlanta, Georgia.
In addition, Scatter Brothers Productions have launched a new feature film content division called SB3 Studios in partnership with LA film industry veteran/leader John C. Hall. A former Universal Pictures executive, Hall joins the leadership team for SB3 Studios with over 20 years of experience.
“I am thrilled to be a part of this natural expansion for the talented Scatter Brothers team,” he commented. “We recently opened an Atlanta office in the Inman Park area where our film production offices will be headquartered.” Hall is an award-winning and respected film, television, and theatrical producer as well as a published author. Most recently, he served as Executive Vice President of Distribution & Marketing at Universal Pictures.
FEATURE FILM “THREE LOUD KNOCKS” IN DEVELOPMENT FOR 2022
A major expansion announcement took place during the Scatter Brothers 8th annual red carpet Food + Film Fest Red Carpet Charity event in front of an audience of over 100 film aficionados: SB3 Studios will produce a major motion picture in Atlanta called “THREE LOUD KNOCKS” which is currently in development. Pre-production will begin in January, 2022.
Billed as “the ultimate thriller,” THREE LOUD KNOCKS was written by Jeremy Robinson and scheduled to shoot in the Spring of 2022. This fast-paced, suspenseful film with a breathless cliffhanger features an African-American male lead Ollie and his loving wife Abby, a white “edgy” woman. Audiences will be “on the edge of their seat” with “A-level” principals and a supporting cast coming directly from Georgia. Casting will be done by Mark Fincannon of Fincannon and Associates and filmed on location near Fayetteville, Georgia. The film will be directed by Ben Daniele and Doug Tschirhart and Tampa Bay executive Phil Yost (President of Compass Land & Title) has been announced as a producer. The project has received high Script and Financial Scores from Slated (the premiere online film packaging, financing, and distribution marketplace).
