The Early Inauguration Trailer from Joseph F. Alexandre on Vimeo.

It's with great delight, and gratitude to our initial backers, that we can proudly announce the completion of our Cinematic duo, of which the first film is now up on Amazon. YES, that's right, 'The Early Inauguration' is now available on Amazon! Most importantly, we're proud to announce our newest thriller, RALPHIE's 'BLUE', which in many ways is the follow up to the award winning 'The Early Inauguration' and is just starting it's Festival run with a screening at the Silicon Beach Film Festival at the legendary TCL Chinese Theater on Sunday, October 3rd, 2021, at Noon. Ticket info Here on SBFF website.

We were proud to screen 'The Early Inauguration' at the prestigious 46th annual USA Film Festival in Dallas, TX & at academy accredited HollyShorts Film Festival, Beeston FF in the UK & many others. 'The Early Inauguration' on IMBd! We screened with some films from Clermont-Ferrand (along with the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival considered the best shorts fests in the world) and we more than held our own and won several nominations for best short at The Scene FF & others.

What happens when a newly elected President of the US takes office? Is he given an orientation, if you will? Is he possibly coerced or influenced to tone down his ambitious campaign rhetoric or vision for the country by the 'powers that be'? Is 'Hope and Change' muted somewhat by the fact that the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government don't have the mandate our founding fathers intended? These issues confront newly elected President Michael Liebman: a fictional cross between Obama, Paul Wellstone, but with a financial background more akin to Jon Corzine. He has a vision for how to re-make and fix the dysfunction inside the beltway. However, there's a consortium of powerful folks, who even helped get him elected, that have other conflicting ideas. The President is making a thank you speech to his donor base in LA, and raising money for the DNC of course, Under the auspices of a National security issue in Pakistan, POTUS is led to a quick briefing on the situation. However, he quickly discovers the two gentlemen awaiting him, both former NSA operatives now in the private sector, representing the aforementioned 'powers that be', have slightly different ideas. Will Liebman's Presidency be hijacked before he even takes office? In a somewhat miserable experience, we were lucky enough with a smidgen of help from Fandor to raise a meager budget from Kickstarter for The Early Inauguration

"The Early Inauguration is an indie, political thriller. Set in a single room with our three main characters having a conversation, though the film’s real star is the story. Alexandre’s script captures a mere glimpse of the Deep State in a way in which one would be hard-pressed to deny its plausibility."Alan Ng- Film Threat The Early Inauguration

Moreover, included in this package is not only this award winning film, but our aforementioned companion piece & follow up of sorts, Ralphie's 'Blue', in which you can see a teaser above. Director Joseph F. Alexandre considers Ralphie's 'Blue' a companion piece & spiritual sequel of sorts in which TEI was the 'raison d'etre' for Donald Trump's campaign as he was going to 'drain the swamp' & fix the 'rigged' system. Whereas, Ralphie's 'Blue' is the end result of those 4 years culminating in the January 6th insurrection... in which R'B' delves into how a domestic terrorism event is planned & executed.

"Ralphie's 'Blue" is the story of a hapless but likable, regular guy named Ralph Monti, a man with two strikes against him. One, he works nights and weekends as an umpire, but he can't seem to get past little league. Two, it takes him a fistful of meds every day just to keep it together. Ralph's game takes a dramatic turn when he meets Chase, the charismatic leader of a "men's group." Chase takes Ralph under his wing, introducing him to his group - The Order - at a weekend retreat in the mountains, where Ralph encounters a committed band of white nationalists, more accurately, very well connected politically, a group of dangerous White Supremacists. (Ironic, because Ralph has a black girlfriend but Chase has an "alternative" approach to Ralph's medication, which proves tantalizing to Ralphie.) Chase intends to shape Ralph into a dangerous weapon to be used by The Order as part of their plan of attack. Can Ralph help foil the event before it's too late? AND, awesomely you can see both films world-wide on Vimeo on Demand here:

Lemon 2008



A hit man gets the job to go see the "girl downtown", he gets dressed in drag, gets accosted by a horny drunk whom he quickly dispenses of, and surprises the 'girl' with a few tricks up his sleeve. Only it turns out she may be holding the ace in the deck.

This short was culled from a feature script written with Jan Firek, we made a sample trailer here:


Shadow Play

Mike Nelson (Kurt Mattsen)is a young aspiring actor who is introduced by a friend to a mysterious gentleman named Mr. Christian (John Crowther). Mr. Christian explains he has a grant to research ang quantify creativity. What seperates an ordinary painter from Picasso, an ordinary scribe from Fitzgerald, etc. and what if one could harness and tap into that creativity?In exchange for Mike's participation he is promised an entree into the theatre world as Mr. christian can call upon his wide array of connections in the art world due to his studies thus far. All Mike has to do is watch and read some videos and essays he's been given and respond with some sort of improvizational monologue.

Things begin well enough for Mike as he has been called back on some auditions, however, the materials he has been presented leave a lasting an unwanted impression. He feels he may even be programmed somehow. Even more disturbing is that Mike has reason to believe several of the programs past participants may have gone on murderous shooting sprees. However, because of Mike's confused state of mind, it is hard for him to know whether this is just delusion or not. Will Mike be the next victim, and most importantly who is Mr. Christian?

While this film comes under the guise of a thriller, it is really a meditative piece on the nature of violence in the U.S. and offers in it's subtext a few possible reasons why... Coming soon to DVD, but we're proud to announce it's available on Amazon Video on Demand, just click here..

AND, even more importantly, here on Vimeo on Demand for the first time in this INSANELY AWESOME 2 for 1 deal. You get the initial feature film entitled Into The Chasm, as well as the truncated short version of Into the Chasm entitled Shadow Play, which will play as the trailer (15 min short film.) Think of it as a mind bending two for one psychological thriller... Think about these films every time you read about another mass shooting, all too frequent an occurrence these days...

God Save the Queen

God Save The Queen starts as a lyrical, meditative appreciation of the beauty of California's central coast and quickly shifts into an explosive polemic charged with political overtones about current US foreign policy in Iraq and recent world events and how the two are inextricably linked.
