A local film production company is planning to hold a fundraising celebration in Scottsdale which will launch a movie-making challenge to showcase the strength of Arizona film making.

The event is to be 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Feb. 5, at Papago Brewing Co., 7107 E. McDowell Road in Scottsdale.

Dirt Capsule Films will begin their “10 Month Mission – 10 Strange Films” film making project by holding a launch party at the Papago Brewing Company the Friday before the Oscars. This event will mark the beginning of their fundraising campaign for the project and will feature samples of previous work the company has completed, according to a press release.

Starting in March, Dirt Capsule Films will produce a series of ten films which will be presented as a set to broadcast and online networks for exhibition. Each film will feature oddity as entertainment, which has become a hallmark of the company’s products. All cast and crew used for the project will be from Arizona.

Dirt Capsule Films has produced several short films, including Between the Other Side, using only local actors and crew members. The production team has years of experience working on films both in Hollywood and here at home. They came together in Arizona to share their skills with the independent film community.

The Scottsdale Independent is published monthly and mailed to 75,000 homes and businesses in Scottsdale.
