Chapman U pulls ‘Trigger’

First project named for microbudget production shingle

Chapman U’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts has picked “Trigger” as the first project for its microbudget production shingle Chapman Filmed Entertainment.

“Wooly Boys” scribe Max Enscoe will pen the script while Chapman alumnus Basel Owies will direct.

Pic follows two men fixated with what causes evil: A father who destroys his own life in pursuit of a monster and his son’s attempt to unravel his father’s obsession.

Owies graduated from Dodge’s Conservatory of Motion Pictures in 2010.

Enscoe also penned the TV movie “Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board.”

Chapman’s Travis Knox will produce. Bob Yari and William Immerman will exec produce with Adam Rosenfelt and Brian Pitt.

Launched in 2011, Chapman’s microbudget division aims to finance between four and six pictures per year in the $250,000 – $625,000 range.

Original Artists reps Enscoe.
