SMASHCAM Productions, a small studio based out of Malden, MA founded by David McDivitt, is gearing up to shoot the trailer for The Pentagon Memo. The script, written by McDivitt, involves an attempted cover up of a security leak, a memo, a betrayal and kidnapping, and a high speed chase.
The Pentagon Memo will be part of “Film for a Cure,” which is McDivitt’s way of giving back to others. 25% of the revenue for the life of any film produced by SMASHCAM Productions will be given to 5 charities involved with Parkinson’s disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s , AIDS, and multiple sclerosis.
“We are looking for help in orchestrating a fundraiser that will also be used in one of the scenes in the trailer,” McDivitt tells HEC. “We will be auctioning off a walk on role in the trailer!”
Just a few weeks ago, Ken Willinger, an local Emmy award winning Director of Photography with more than 25 years in TV/Film biz joined the SMASHCAM crew and will start rolling footage for the trailer on December 6th.
SMASHCAM is in need of some talent to join the crew for his film.
