The year 2016 was an extremely productive year for all of us over at CDI and 2017 is looking to continue that trend. The Quest Trilogy written by CEO DJ Perry continues to be a force. The first film directed by Jesse Low enjoyed a limited release in 2016 and has been picked up by Bridgestone Multimedia Group for worldwide release on April 4th, 2017. The follow-up film in the trilogy “Chasing the Star” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqvr3PEa0qg) directed by Bret Miller is almost complete. The film will enjoy a limited theatrical showcase before a worldwide release with BMG in September 2017. The third installment “The Christ Slayer” is slated to shoot in March 2017 for an Easter 2018 release.
Beyond the trilogy the company shot the pilot feature “Wild Faith,” directed by Jesse Low. The feature film has a developing series behind it and the film is looking to release late in 2017. The film is an 1800’s story of Emmett Murphy (Shane Hagedorn), a Civil War veteran who is compelled to protect his new interracial family despite the efforts of his unforgiving neighbors. But the arrival of a traveling circus train incites the most unlikely set of events that will push everyone to the limits.
With these projects in post and several more in development 2017 is looking to be a busy year for Collective Development.
