Welcome to "The Man in Charge" film page.

This movie was created as the first film project by Elysian Visions and with the help and support of C. Sundiata Cowels over at Future Incite.

After being involved in a few other independent projects, we wanted to see what we could do, and we wanted to learn how best to do it - for ourselves. Actually this fifteen minute short started as a one scene project that just kept growing. We are interested in testing the limits of new technology to produce original content. I wrote, directed and acted in this project.

This experience has been very educational and rewarding for us. While the film is far from perfect, we have been very pleased with all of the positive feedback we have received for our efforts and we're looking forward to our next project. (Just as soon as we finish paying for this one and get some fresh backing or hit the lottery.)
