Pandemonium reigns with Complete deal

Shingle merges with like-minded, and named, partner

HOLLYWOOD — San Francisco-based commercial/film production and new-media marketing shingle Complete Pandemonium has signed a five-year first-look development deal with Bill Mechanic’s Pandemonium.

Headed by prexy Stelio Kitrilakis, Complete Pandemonium was founded six years ago with no relation to Mechanic’s company despite the similar name.

As yet, no specific titles have been identified under the deal, which will rep a six-figure financial commitment over five years from Pandemonium. A number of the pics are expected to be sci-fi driven, however.

The films are expected to be bankrolled under Mechanic’s new financing and worldwide distribution deals, which are still being pieced together (Variety, Oct. 9).

“We are very pleased to team with the talented group of directors at Complete Pandemonium,” Mechanic said. “Stelio and I have discussed producing features together and are also developing some other projects in the areas of new media and visual effects.”

New-media links

Added Kitrilakis: “We also intend to involve our new-media company, Mekanism, in the relationship as well. The work that Mekanism is doing for clients such as Microsoft’s Ultimate TV has many applications that are pertinent to Internet marketing efforts for feature films and other forms of entertainment.”

Complete Pandemonium exec producer Clint Goldman and directors Mark Dippe and Steve “Spaz” Williams have a sci-fi pedigree, having produced and directed “Spawn” for New Line Cinema.

Clients include Nike, Lexus and Cingular; company has also collaborated with such filmmakers as Steven Spielberg and James Cameron on “Jurassic Park,” “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and “The Mask.”

Its team of execs also includes exec producer Christine Whitney and directors Richard Kizu-Blair and Lionel Coleman.

Shingle’s first feature, which premiered at Sundance, was “Haiku Tunnel,” released Stateside by Sony Pictures Classics last month.
