To all our readers, clients, family and friends, we hope you have a wonderful time with loved ones and a very merry Christmas!
We also wanted to let you know that we will be posting a very important public service announcement on January 1, 2013. It is a video that was put together by our intern Ryan Brown, and it contains a message that is important for all of us to hear.
Until then, have a wonderful holiday season!

Here’s something you might not know about Abandon Films.
We started our company during a recession. We moved in with each other and worked out of a basement for three years. We worked on projects that got us nowhere but back where we started. We made a lot of mistakes (cue the Sufjan Stevens song… “I don’t mind, I don’t mind.”).
We really don’t mind. Because living with abandon is the only way to live. If you never risk anything, you never learn anything. That is why we are called Abandon Films. Because we believe it.
It’s time to take another risk…
Today we are launching our new website and announcing the production of a new short film.
More than that, we are committing to publishing weekly blog content and producing a lineup of short films throughout the winter and spring.
Legacy of the Mountain is now available in Special Edition BluRay plus DVD. It includes the original documentary, plus deleted scenes, commentaries, and two original featurettes. Get it here.
- The Ben Shipp’s Story - an inspiring short film about the Liberty Flames kicker who overcame incredible obstacles to pursue his passion
- Capturing Game Day - the behind-the-scenes promotional trailer
- Deleted Scenes: Before the Game, The Process, and an alternate opening
- Filmmaker commentaries
Abandon Films is casting for The Laptop Conspiracy, a short film written and directed by Justin Snyder, and starring Kevin Spacey and Kim Basinger. No just kidding. The film will be used as a case study for Producing a Great Short Film, a tutorial series directed by Adam Everett Miller. This special series is funded by Envato and will be featured on the Tuts Network at the end of this year.
