Fenton adds prod’n division

Fenton Entertainment, a two-year-old management company, will be expanding its activities to include a production division, with an initial goal of making low-budget features, according to company head Steven Fenton.

The company, formerly known as Fenton Management, recently finished production on its first feature film, “Splendor Falls,” written and directed by Aion Velie, (helmer of “The Killing Jar,” seen at last year’s Sundance fest.) “Splendor” is the story of a father/daughter relationship, and stars Gordon Clapp (“NYPD Blue”).

“Fenton Entertainment’s ideal goal is to make two feature films a year with an estimated budget between one and three million dollars,” Fenton said. “If it makes sense for us to make a picture on a larger budget, then that’s what we’ll do.”

Fenton is currently in pre-production on “The White,” described as a sophisticated horror film, with production planned for a February 1998 start. Both features are being produced in association with Without a Box Prods.

The company is in post-production on client David Straus’ first feature, “Whiskey Riddles and Dandelion Wine,” a story of a dying woman’s attempt to unite her cousin with her best friend.

Fenton’s client roster includes Charlie Schlatter (“Diagnosis Murder,”) Leila Kenzle (“Mad About You,”) Hillary Danner (“Michael Hayes,”) Nicole deBoer (“Mission Genesis,”) Shannon Elizabeth (“Dish Dogs,” upcoming) and writer Stan Evans (“Talk Soup.”)
