Green Film goes ‘Gerrymandering’

Production unit kicks off third documentary

Nascent Gotham production outfit the Green Film Co. has started its third feature doc, “Gerrymandering,” to go with “Freakonomics” and an untitled documentary about Barack Obama.

“Gerrymandering” is a nonpartisan look at redistricting efforts undertaken by politicians in recent years, using California Proposition 11 as a prominent example. Its helmer is Jeff Reichert, a former senior VP at Magnolia who helped oversee the marketing of docs including “Capturing the Friedmans” and “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.”

The pic, which is targeting a 2010 release in sync with midterm congressional elections, also involves notable Prop. 11 proponent Bill Mundell, who is exec producing.

Green principals Dan O’Meara and Chris Romano, both vets of the Gotham film scene, founded the shingle in 2007. They aim to make films that challenge assumptions and examine social issues. Environmental pics are an option, but Green’s scope is wider.

“There is a lot more to this than light bulbs,” Romano said.

Participant is one model, though Green is sticking to docs for the time being, aiming to get involved at any stage, including offering finishing funds.

Chad Troutwine, a financier and producer of pics such as “Paris, je t’aime,” has joined Green as a financial backer and producer. He suggested that “Freakonomics” be done in omnibus fashion. “Enron” helmer Alex Gibney and Morgan Spurlock are directing two of its five segments, with production due to wrap in 2009.
