The goal of Project First Strike (to borrow a concept from former President George W. Bush) is to literally help these filmmakers create projects that say “BAM!” I am here pay attention to me as a creative force and I am not afraid to strike first and make you see me. As such these projects will specifically be edgy in their respective genre’s. We feel strongly that every genre has an edge and we wish to explore it with up and coming filmmakers.
