THE INDEPENDENTS debuted at the 2018 SANTA BARBARA INT'L FILM FESTIVAL where the Hollywood Reporter hailed it "An extremely engaging film... An unconventional and sharply written script which subverts all the cliches of the star-is-born story.” (Read full review here). It then won the jury prize for BEST FEATURE FILM 2018 at the Omaha Film Festival — and has gone on to win audiences and plaudits at great festivals all around the U.S. including Deadcenter Film Fest, Dallas International Film Fest, Virginia Film Fest, Naples International Film Fest, and The Mill Valley Film Festival! More TBA soon!
THE INDEPENDENTS is a MUSICAL COMEDY/DRAMA about three solo-artists who collide at the same crossroads and discover harmony. Thus is born “RGB” (at least until they come up with a better band name) and what follows is their roller-coaster-ride journey across America for a one last shot at musical glory. Starring real-life bandmates RICH PRICE, GREG NAUGHTON & BRIAN CHARTRAND of THE SWEET REMAINS (30+ Million Spotify plays)-- and inspired by their real-life experiences together as a band.
Written & Directed by GREG NAUGHTON Produced by GREG NAUGHTON, DOROTTYA MATHE & JONATHAN BURKHART Featuring RICHARD KIND, BOYD GAINES, GEORGE WENDT, KELLI O'HARA, KEIRA NAUGHTON, CHRIS SULLIVAN & JAMES NAUGHTON. FULL CAST & CREW (imdb)
