Alpine Light Media

Development and Production for Film, TV and Video

About

Alpine Light Media is a multi-faceted development and production company.

On one side, we develop and produce narrative and documentary projects for film, TV and SVOD. We take ideas and run with them, focusing on meaningful work that exists at the intersection of Art and Commerce. Our production company is young, but our team is an incredible mix of veterans from Cinema, TV and Finance.

On the other side, we are also a full-service Corporate Media Production company, able to deliver any kind of content for either B2C or B2B communications: messaging videos, custom short films, speeches, branding and web design, all under one roof.

Behind both divisions is a strong team of artists and financiers – people who know how to tell stories, and how to get those stories produced in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

Our mission is to create wonderful work with meaning to serve whatever audience is appropriate for that work – whether it’s a multi-national audience of paying cinema-goers or a small team of sales agents at your company.

In Development

Relative Minor

A drug-addicted violinist with a seedy past, a fiery social worker, and an enigmatic drug lord meet at the intersection of drugs and music in the City of Brotherly Love.

Relative Minor follows three characters as they navigate their intertwining lives in this city: DAVID, a Chinese-adoptee of Russian parents – and a recovering addict who has just achieved his lifelong dream by joining the violin section of the world- renowned Philadelphia Symphony, only to have it threatened by both economic realities and his own internal war. Trying to help him is his social-worker rehab counselor, TORI, who – though very good at her job – tends to get a little too close to her clients. And working to win David’s trust is BOYD BASSET, known as BASS (rhymes with Ace) – a classical-music-loving drug lord, who discovers David’s real past and tries to use it to his advantage.

Each has their individual struggles, brought on by both their own flaws and the forces arrayed against them, but each is connected as well through the world of drugs and addiction – and through living and working in Philadelphia. Which, at the end of the day, can be a pretty small town.

On the Horizon

Eutopia

Feature-length,  geopolitical comedy. In the near future, a tech-billionaire decides the only way to solve the world’s problems is to invite all the sane people to join a brand new country and declare independence from everyone else – and he has the money, influence and chutzpah to pull it off. The powers-that-be, however, try to stop it before it starts.

The Valley

Political-science-fiction TV series. 200 years in our future, affluent people are implanted at birth with a neurological device that connects to the Internet, while those in poverty remain segregated and unconnected. When a normal man discovers within himself a powerful biological gift that threatens the status quo, he needs to learn to control it before others get to control it for him.

I Am Strong

Feature-length comedy. A driven yet deluded Englishwoman is convinced that Hollywood is just waiting for her. From her childhood home in Essex, she hooks up with a very handsome and gullible rich man in London, and from there gets her foot in the door to the upper-echelon of the British independent film world.  She then proceeds to sabotage every good opportunity that comes her way, while continuing to believe she’s going to be a star. It does not end well for her. [Based on True Events.]
