~Season 4 is in PrePoduction people! If you haven't seen our flagship series @adultish_webseries you can stream it now on the @footprintntwk or on www.adultish.tv ⭐️ It began as a charming little bunch of episodes but in three seasons @bevinynotnow has taken her show to many triumphs on the web festival circuit. Adultish inspires people to give out awards as well as a copycat or two. That's some greatness right there! It's directed by westward's own @justincognito who is one of the leads. Westwards @solomonshiv also joined the cast last season. Just look at the laurels we are racking up! #adultishwebseries has proven to be not yer typical webseries. Can't wait for season 4, people! #westwardorphans #orphansproductions #filmmakers ~

~Sometimes the 'easy' shots take the longest. What a time it took to get this beauty of a title shot for our arthouse film BLACK WHITE REaD. @wmattstewart had to raise, mark, center this little spot on the newspaper and line it up with the bottom of his face and all under the six eagle eyes of director @justincognito , DP @justinarbabimedia, and production designer @i_sell_socks #blackwhiteread #westwardorphans ##whatsnewintheworld ~

~A favorite latter scene from Ingmar Bergan's "The Seventh Seal" of 1957 inwhich a wayward Knight {Max Von Sydow} meets with Death {Bengt Ekerot} upon a desolate beach for 'fun and games' and answers about what's important. There was some notable underpinnings of this film in Westward Orphans' BLACK WHITE REaD'. Daring black and white existentialist film goals. #westwardorphans #ingmarbergman #blackwhiteread ~

Staying on top of our lists, brainstorm sessions and weekly meetings. We like it the retro way. Typewriters don't freeze, run out of battery, or shut down in the middle of long sentences after all. 📠🎞📼

@thealandelarosa the writer of "Dig It":
"Dig It or the Desperate Search to Connect with Worms" is a unique series about a lonely gravedigger named Douglas; desperate to connect with the living but is surrounded by the dead. When Douglas uses social media to go "live" from the cemetery, he not only shares his own insights but he also introduces viewers to the ghosts he tends to and their haunting stories."
Coming soon...

~#BTS of BLACK WHITE REaD our first project together -now completed- BWR exact producer @solomonshiv collaborates on a a crucial moment with BWR production designer @i_sell_socks {those are his hands there testing the shot} to make a second {and less ominous} version of the hand. We just love models and miniatures at Westward Orphans. #westwardorphans #filmmakers #blackwhiteread ~

~The Westward Orphans have seen @mothermovie And we must admit- whether you love or hate it {there seems to be no in between} this is the MOTHER of all 2017 film discussions. *see what we did there?*@weinsteinco calls it a masterpiece. A.O.Scott of @nytimes hailed the film's ability to make him laugh {in a good way} the @latimes says every citizen should see it almost out of a sense of cinema-going duty and look at the context of its meaning before drawing conclusions {which is saying it deserves special treatment from knee jerk reactions}, Cinemascore gave it an F {same as Weinstein's #themaster but it also gave Transformers 5 a B+ } it is certified 'rotten' by audiences and barely fresh by critics on @rottentomatoes . @darrenaronofsky is being called a daring artist on one side and a narcissist on the other and in his own words sums it up as being 'in-your-face-punk-rock'. Wow! The buzz surrounding this one. Even the similarly dark yet absurd #GETOUT had to slam the breaks and say it was not gonna go THAT arthouse! Was it marketing correctly to the horror audience? Should it have gone the limited release route first? If you've seen the film what did you think? #mother #apennyforyourthoughts Did you #loveitorhateit ~
