Studio Focus – Twitchy Dolphin Flix

I am continuing to look at small independent movie production companies. I want to help spread the word of their work and see how much their work is different to the mainstream material we always end up seeing and disliking.

Today I am looking at Twitchy Dolphin Flix, This company is an Austin, Texas based and founded by two friends who met at University James Christopher and Chris Copple. With the first film being released in 2008 the production company continues to make micro budget films using plenty of different genres.

The Films

This was a romantic comedy about getting over an unsuccessful romance made with a budget of $7000.
