Kodak discount scheme picks helmers

The first five filmmakers aided under Independent Feature Project and Kodak’s Frequent Buyer Program of discounts are newcomers Alain Cloarec and John Cocca as well as Heather Winters, Louis Guida and Ralph McKay.

All are Independent Feature Project members under the ground rules of the discounts scheme (ranging up to 15%) for negative film that Kodak and the IFP instituted a month ago.

The IFP’s program director Michelle Byrd administers the pilot Frequent Buyer Program.

“Through the program, we’re able to assist first-time filmmakers as well as more experienced professionals working within $ 1 million budgets,” said Chip Wilkinson, VP and general manager, East Zone, Kodak Motion Picture & TV Imaging.

Cloarec is writing, producing and directing in Gotham “The Golden Ram,” a satirical detective film, as his debut feature. Cocca is writing and producing “Minges Alley” (directed by Mark Foggetti), which was pitched as a work-in-progress at last fall’s Independent Feature Film Market in N.Y.

Guida is producing and directing “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’,” a documentary on the Kentucky Derby. McKay is associate producer on Kelly Reichardt’s “River of Grass,” a road movie from exec producers Peter Newman and Richard Guay.

Winters is producing “Shut Yer Mouth,” a political comedy directed in Manhattan by Fraser Bresnahan.
