ALPHA is about a recently defeated councilman who enlists a young investigative reporter to interview him as a stepping-stone for his candidacy for mayor.
About the film, "Alpha"
We are Douglas Detwiler and Michael Lino Gonzales, two filmmakers who are intrigued by the process of backroom politics. Even though society is used to seeing things on a much grander platform, our story shows that these same issues occur on a much smaller and direct level of government.
What the Funding is Going Towards
As of right now, we’re self-financing this film. Which pays for equipment and food for our crew.
However, this does not pay for what our crew is worth, and what we really feel this film is worth, including the costs that will occur during the process of filming which is all but inevitable in any film, regardless of size or budget.
The story, commentary and social significance of this piece will contribute to the already expanding and productive industry that is Texas film.
