Nehst Studios reveals 2008 projects


NEW YORK -- Larry Meistrich's new Nehst Studios has unveiled its 2008 lineup, including six indie features and four Web/TV series.

The projects set to reach the starting gate first are Priyanka Kumar's dramatic feature "The Flicker's Dance," Wayne Chesler's darkly comic horror film "Fright Fest" and the "Little Rascals"-style Web series "Dribble Kick Throw."

Other features in the pipeline are Sridhar Reddy's India-based martial arts flick "The Killing Moon," writer Rene Ashton's road movie "Boy's Name," the gang war actioner "Blood Stripe" and the mining tragedy drama "And One For All."

Planned Web series, which may be developed into TV projects, include the animated superhero serial "National Triumph League" and the college cooking showcase "Cook U."

Most projects were brought to Meistrich through online pitches from its Web site, and others were developed from relationships through his years running the indie production outfit "Shooting Gallery."

One of the latter projects is "Dance," brought to Nehst by Steven C. Beer of GreenbergTraurig.

Nehst's Dana Offenbach will oversee production for the studio.
