For Immediate Release
May 6, 2010
Lucky You Films owner Kent Smith has joined with Michael Plumides and David Temple to write ‘360’, a film created and written by Smith and Plumides with Temple involved in revisions. Lucky You Films has recently been granted the rights to produce the film and has plans to start filming in Charlotte, NC sometime in the near future.
‘360’ is a film about a Rap singer, once on top of a world of fame and fortune, who loses everything in the blink of an eye. He is forced to go back home to work at his parents dry-cleaning business, all the while dreading having to face the people he shoved to the side on his way to the top. Smith, Plumides, and Temple bring sarcasm, wit and humor to a story that can all too often be true.
Kent Smith is an award winning writer, director, and producer with his roots starting in still photography. Smith’s latest success came with the film The Last Passport of which he co-wrote, co-produced, and co-directed with David Temple. The film won two awards at the Solstice Film Festival in Minneapolis, MN for Best Directors (Smith and Temple) and Best Actor, which went to their lead Jimmy Hagar. When Smith is not involved in making films he owns and operates an equally successful photography business, which he has been doing in Charlotte now for over 14 years. He has been featured in over a hundred national magazines for both his commercial and sports work.
Michael Plumides is a writer, and the author of the recent, critically acclaimed indie book, KILL THE MUSIC (2009). Plumides’ book has been featured in a number of print and online publications and was heralded as one of the “ten best rock books of 2009″ by Fred Mills, the Managing Editor of BLURT Magazine, a highly regarded online music source. Since co-writing ‘360’ Plumides continues with his passion of writing scripts. Among the indie scripts he’s been working on is GHOST TREK, and is now partnered with Bill Walker on the film project, GHOST TREK: CONFEDERATE GHOULS, a lampoon of paranormal reality television, to be shot in the environs of North and South Carolina late summer.
David Temple is also an award winning filmmaker. He partnered with Kent Smith in The Last Passport as co-writer, co-producer and co-director. Temple is no stranger to the film word as he saw great success with two other projects he was involved in winning Best Short for both “Rewind” and “Poke the Sleeping Bear” at the Asheville and Solstice Film Festivals, respectively. Temple is currently working on his first novel set to release very soon. He is also an actor and National Voice Over artist.
Lucky You Films is thrilled to produce another film in Charlotte, NC with Smith at the helm once again as the director of the film. Smith expects to see a lot of the same faces that were involved in the making of The Last Passport and is looking forward to further success with ‘360’.
