Malevolent Corporate Logo for "Ronni"

In our film, No Sleep for Ronni, we have two antagonists, Dr. Bly (played by Tim Towne) and Ms. Slovak (Portia Adney). Both work for a dark and sinister company, the fictional Přízrak Technologies Corporation.

The headquarters is based in Prague. Přízrak is a Czech (and Russian) word for ghost, phantom, or apparition.

Early in the movie, a corporate promo is aired which explains the science behind what is about to happen to Ronni. In creating a fictional company, we needed to make it seem real, right down to the logo. Here's what we came up with...

The initial video production took place in November of 2018. We then returned in January 2019 for more updates. Finally today on July 10th, eight months after that first shoot, we finished filming the remodel.

"Beast Bike Beauty" Screening Tonight

Our short, Beast Bike Beauty, screened tonight at the Madison Independent Filmmakers Meetup. Received some good feedback from the group with insights into a couple things we hadn't considered before. It's always nice to see how a room reacts to a project and to hear afterwards how certain scenes worked (or didn't work ) for individuals.
