Exceptionals is an original series produced by Full Brain Films, LLC in Portland, Oregon. It was created by award-winning screenwriter and FBF member Greg Kerr and is produced by Full Brain Films’ members Nan Avant and Greg Kerr.
Levy Tran stars as the Olympian and covert operative Rachel LaTour. She is introduced in Episode 4 of the new, original series, Exceptionals.
The series follows the lives of a group of people who have unusual genetic traits that confer advantages on them that are much like super powers. The series is drama and includes high concept science fiction and thought-provoking dialogue and situations. The first four episodes are being produced and will be released after a marketing and promotion period soon.
The first four episodes (the pilot episodes) are self-funded by Full Brain Films, with a goal of production company or studio partnership to pitch to a network. Agents and managers who have experience with production company or studio pitches are welcome to contact us as well.
Exceptionals falls into the genres of narrative fiction, drama, science fiction, thriller and super-hero realism. The first four episodes (the complete Part 1: Future Certain) are being self-funded by Full Brain Films, with a goal of receiving investment to continue the series.
Future plot arcs move the series into a more science fiction and action-oriented direction, while still maintaining the drama and character relationship stories, thus the genre of super-hero realism: normal people who discover they have special abilities and their struggles to integrate these into their normal lives. The abilities are often difficult to control or have very dire consequences for the characters. Strong women are the core of the principal characters in this series.
A ten minute long, chance encounter between a woman and a man profoundly alters their lives as they share their darkest secrets. This is a new, short film by Full Brain Films. It stars Karla Mason, and was written and directed by Greg Kerr with production design and assistant direction by Wendy Peyton. Nan Avant provided the score for this film. More information will be posted soon about venues the film will show in.
