Cosmos Productions: Action Thrillers Which Will Haunt You

This is a list of Cosmos Production's current projects. It is by no means complete. This list was created to show the depth and scope of our interests as well as our ability to cross genres and venues. It is our team's intention to produce these and other similar projects, leading up to the formation of a four sound stage studio for low to medium budgeted projects. It is our belief that in the current studio system these demographics are under underestimated and under served. The current trend of focusing on “tent pole” films, which rely heavily on A list talent, has limited the industry's ability to satisfy the audiences and the needs of the growing number of media venues. Their business practices have created vacuum, which no longer satisfies the audiences' needs. Cosmos Productions will gratify the audiences by focusing on common sense budgets that feature both experienced actors with established fan bases, but who don't fit in the the ever changing A list category, and talented newbies, who have yet to make a name for themselves

While most large studios are merely off shoots of huge conglomerates, which used them as tax right offs, Cosmos Productions combines both innovation and creativity with an acute business acumen. In doing so, we will create quality projects that have a ready made market in a cost effective manor, thereby increasing our profitability potential.

These are the wounds that bind us to the past. Some use it as an excuse to hurt others. Some hurt themselves.

Their motto is: “We've got your back” What if, in their dedication to help, the founders of Operation Home Base stumble upon an international cover up; putting a target on their backs?
