Message From The Owner

As a filmmaker, primarily a writer, I have always had projects that I’ve had to put on the Backburner for a multitude of reasons. Whether it was financial challenges, time constraints, or just a lack of know how, we all have that one or maybe even several passion projects that live inside of us. In an effort to provide guidance and support, I created Backburner as an initiative under SIDPo Productions to help bring these types of projects to fruition.

We at SIDPo Productions and Backburner Films would like to welcome you to your film future!

Let’s jump on a creative call so we can get an idea of what your vision is for your film.

I’ll write your script in order to bring your vision to life.

Let’s get into pre-production on your film; casting, locations scouting, table reads, rehearsals and more!

Let’s Make A Movie! - It’s time for lights, cameras, and action!

Your film has been shot, now it’s time for it to go into the editing bay and post production.

Congratulations! You are now an Executive Producer and fillmmaker with a viable film that can be submitted to film festivals, pitched to networks, or submitted to streaming platforms for the world’s viewing pleasure.

By now you’ve no doubt got the bug, so it’s all about repeating the process and making more movies! It’s like eating lays potato chips, you can’t stop at just one. 🙂
