FALLING BACKWARDS, a family-friendly drama, tells the story of a father who goes to extremes to save his only son from drug addiction. The film stars Cleveland native Robert Piper (All My Children, Rescue Me), Karyn White (Casualties of War, Deadpool), Tom Dubyna (The Homecoming, Doughboy) and Jimmie Lee Williams (Freerunner, The Black Dove). The film is being shot in and around Cleveland and will have multiple premieres in Cleveland, Canton and New Philadelphia.
Something that makes Giant Leap Pictures truly unique is that their first feature length film will generate funds for Ohio’s non-profit drug rehabilitation center, Glenbeigh. “That is my vision for this production company,” Latimer explains, “with every film we produce, a portion of the proceeds will go to a charity related to the theme of that movie. Should we become blessed to grow larger and make a substantial dent in the entertainment industry, it is our civic duty to inspire those we entertain and give back to our communities.” The company’s CEO is adamant as he continues, “No matter how big Giant Leap should get, it will NEVER leave the city of Cleveland. This city is full of untapped potential and Hollywood is just finding out what the rest of us have known all along; Cleveland is tough enough to do what L.A. and NYC can do.”
Kenny Latimer, a seven-time national recording artist, is a writer/producer/director who is currently working with Hollywood veteran Jim Best (The Dukes of Hazzard, The Twilight Zone) on Giant Leap Pictures next film, AN AMERICAN LEPRECHAUN (a children’s film written by Latimer that was originally optioned by DreamWorks SKG in 2005). “In my humble opinion, it’s a winner,” said Jim Best, who will star and produce. A portion of the proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Rainbow Babies.
The production company’s motto; ‘Changing the World One Frame at a Time.’
