"This is a dream come true for an independent filmmaker like myself. The fact that Panavision recognizes our production as a worthy film to provide world class camera equipment for, says a ton about this project. Everything about the Johnny Games™© project just continues to keep getting bigger and bigger. I have always personally believed that this project would be a huge epic undertaking, with mass worldwide appeal. And now, to have a giant film industry company recognizing that potential and agreeing and wanting to come on board, speaks louder than words about the team we have put together here at Charlie Boy Productions and on the Johnny Games™© film project.” - Nicholas Givanio Founder/Owner of Charlie Boy Productions and Creator/Writer/Producer/Star of Johnny Games™©.
Panavision is set to provide just under a million dollars in valued camera and equipment to the Johnny Games™©team with a Panavision Genesis with Primo Prime Lenses and all the trimmings. Making this one Epic Film indeed. (Noted recent movies shot on this camera include, Captain America-First Avenger, Horrible Bosses, and Immortals.)
Emmy Award winning cinematographer of Johnny Games™© -John Snedden, “It will be epic in every sense of the word. Shooting this project with a Panavision camera and equipment simply put, ‘puts this project on the big boy’s level’. I love working with Panavision and it is always a wonderful magical experience to shoot and use their cameras and equipment. Story telling doesn't get any better than when it is with a Panavision camera.”
Award winning Director/Co-Writer of Johnny Games™© - Ignatius Fischer (laughing, all smiles) "I thought the Red One camera was going to be outstanding enough for all the fight scenes at high frame rates, but to add on a Panavision Genesis is truly going to provide us with what we needed to take this project over the top and to the next level. The combination of the two cameras is going to make the story telling of this film jump off the screen. I could not be more excited."
"It is a true honor and privilege to have access to Panavision. The new filmmaker grant has been the best way we could start a lifetime career of filmmaking with Panavision. I’ll tell you this; if we are making a film, you better believe Panavision will be right with us from now until I’m done making magic with cameras.”- Nicholas Givanio
With first day of production to start June 3, 2013, and run 13 days throughout June, the time was now, for this Indie film company, with hopes of changing the way the game is played. It was not always the case that an up and coming filmmaker could have access to one of the top camera and equipment companies in the industry. But that case has changed and that is exactly what Charlie Boy Productions plans on continuing to do, “Making Dreams the World's Reality.” If you believe it can happen, it will!
“Thanks to Panavision for believing in this project and enabling us to shoot this epic, dark, super hero film Johnny Games™© correctly. There's more to come, as this is only the beginning of a Trilogy!" -Nicholas Givanio
