We also released our short film thriller “Followed” onto our Vimeo page, and you can check it out here on our homepage as well..for mature audiences only!! Along with that we are editing our first feature film “The Improviser” daily trying to get it completed before the new film festival season is underway!
Rebel Lens is also currently in production on a new comedic web-series called “STAKEOUT” that follows the partnership of two Muppet Detectives as they stakeout various criminal suspects..yup that’s right, MUPPETS! Starring Zach Garner and Daniel Florio, our first episode was selected to show at Channel 101 NY’s last live show where we were voted into “production” and will be competing at the next show with a brand new episode in July!
