Duo form digital, vid shingle

Burkhardt/Griffith Prods hope to make 2-3 projects a year

Scott Burkhardt and Chuck Griffith have formed Burkhardt/Griffith Prods., a Los Angeles-based shingle dedicated to feature films, digital media and musicvids.

Shingle, which hopes to make two or three projects a year, kickstarts with “Thank You, Good Night,” co-written by Griffith, Chris Provenzano and Robert Zimmer Jr. Pic, budgeted at under $1 million via private investors, will star Christian Campbell, Lara Boyd Rhodes, J.P. Pitoc, Jay Leggett, Burkhardt, Nicole Eggert, Sally Kirkland and Mark Hamill. Film, which wrapped in May, is out to distribs.

Story focuses on a band, struggling to secure a record deal, that hits the road in a last-ditch effort to succeed.

“We’re especially interested in digital features,” said Griffith, who had run an Internet design firm, “and are finding more and more distributors are, too.”

On the Burkhardt/Griffith development slate is “I-15,” a feature penned and to be helmed by Griffith, about two feuding brothers, a Mob-connected father and his cohorts hunting for a missing kidney; and a musicvid from former New Kids on the Block star Danny Wood.

Company is in talks to acquire IFP West honoree Jennifer Thuy Lan Phang’s “Half-Life,” about a dysfunctional family in a quiet suburb whose lives mirror disturbing events reported in the media. Company hopes to get Phang to helm the project.

Burkhardt will continue to act as well as produce. Griffith, who helmed shorts “Bad Juice,” “Cabin Fever” and “Safe Sex,” will continue to helm and produce.

Rounding out the company are Jeremy Rubin, senior director of production, and Inman Young, who heads shingle’s marketing department.
