Freddy Rodriguez is increasing his presence behind the camera…
The 38-year-old Puerto Rican actor has partnered with Francisco Lorite and producer Bill Winett to launch Top Rebel Productions in an effort to tell stories they care about on their own terms while inspiring audiences.
The former Six Feet Under star and the gang are already hard at work, developing film and television projects for the New Year and beyond.
Their first project, the short film Mediation, will have its world premiere at the upcoming NewFilmmakers LA Film Festival on January 11, 2014 at the AT&T Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Mediation tells the story of a divorce mediation that spirals completely out of control for a husband (Rodriguez), his soon-to-be ex-wife (Marley Shelton) and their court-appointed mediator (Marilyn Sanabria). The short, written and directed by Lorite, will also screen in New York on February 11, as part of the Big Apple’s edition of NewFilmmakers.
As their first project, Mediation sets the tone for the Top Rebel Productions stable of projects; setting the creative tone for the company’s overall production direction focusing on dark films & television projects including crime dramas and thrillers.
