AFM: Colorado Banner Getting Feet Wet with ‘Fishing Naked’

First AFM for 42 Productions

It probably won’t wind up as another Warner Bros., but 42 Productions has made it first foray into Hollywood via the American Film Market.

The Colorado-based banner has been hard to miss during AFM, with a massive poster and stair ads for its “Fishing Naked,” a comedy starring “Twilight” alums Tinsel Korey and Bronson Pelletier, as well as Evan Williams (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”) and Elyse Levesque (“Stargate Universe”).

Set in the mountains of Colorado, “Naked” revolves around the efforts of four friends using Bigfoot lore and other pranks to drive out unwanted tourists.

In a quintessentially move for AFM — where more than 2,000 films are for sale — an actor in a Bigfoot costume and “Fishing Naked” shirt was on the scene Friday at the Loews.

Producer-director Pete Coggan, operating without a sales company, told Variety that his company is near deals for Mexico, Australia, South Africa. “There’s a huge number of horror films for sale at the market, so having a distinctive comedy is working in our favor,” he added.

42 Productions, based in Boulder, Colo., and funded by venture capital investors, launched several years ago by providing video for ad agency work (Volkswagen, Burger King, New Belgium) and music videos along with its first feature –comedy “American High School Woodshop,” which starred former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura and “X-Files” actor Mitch Pileggi.

The company has also completed the documentary “AirUSA” about a civilian company equipped with jets armed for close-air support training missions.
