Narrative Film

With A Cause Productions was founded in 2001 to produce the film, "LITTLE." Since then we've made countless narrative films on a wide variety of subjects. Our latest feature, "Saving For The Day," is due to be completed later this year. Check out the teaser for that and some of our other work below.


Saving For The Day is an independent feature film shot in beautiful Western Montana.  This entertaining and unique project touches on 16 different genres, but is primarily an action-adventure with strong elements of romance and comedy.

This project of passion was shot on high definition video. It features 25 speaking roles and nearly 200 background actors. We shot 85 days of principal photography and 28 days of second unit photography. It's slated to be released later this year. Check out the SAVING FOR THE DAY WEBSITE and IMDB.


Cowboy Reckoning (2008)

Cowboy Reckoning is a short film about two warring factions in a small isolated town in the contemporary American West. The narrative is told in reverse to give a unique perspective on the cycle of violence.

It was shot on 16mm reversal film and was crossed processed.  A standard definition telecine was made from the negative and was edited digitally.  The film was shot in the fall of 2006 on location in the Bitterroot Valley and Bannack State Park in Montana.  It was completed in 2008.


LITTLE (2004)

 

In this contemporary Western, a man invents a super-efficient engine and takes it to an automobile manufacturer. However, he doesn't get the response he anticipated and all hell breaks loose.

LITTLE was shot on 16mm film stock with a wind-up 1955 Bell & Howell. A standard definition telecine was made from the negative and was edited digitally. The film was shot in 2001 and completed in 2004.
