Today we are scaling the Big Bear Snow Summit! Some of the views up here could definitely qualify as a suburb of the middle of no where. We only have one day left, what should we do!?


The OUAD Family took a trip to the Big Bear Discovery Center and they we’re nice enough to help us out with out of the way recommendations for our location scout. Thanks again for your help!



We made the trip to Randy Miller’s compound, where he hosts location and studio-trained exotic animals. He literally has lions, tigers and bears… OH MY.

Scouting the sweet, sweet spots of Sugarloaf. That’s a wrap on Day 2!
It was greta seeing our old friend Richard Moll and the good folks at Get The Burger.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as we continue our adventure!

The OUAD Family starts another film. Go through the process with us by following our social media pages as we’ll be posting often. Day 1 was a success as we explored through the city in places we all have never been before, but what’s more fun that that?

Make sure to follow along with us on our Facebook for the most up-to-date news on our projects!


Two time writer of OUAD projects, first being Finding Harmony and the latest being, Another Day in Paradise, Judy is a dear friend of ours. We were so happy to host Judy to be one of the first to screen the latest cut of ADIP.


Great seeing one of our fellow lifeguards, Brendan Robinson (who plays the hilarious character, STEVE, in our latest project, Another Day in Paradise) with our script supervisor Ann Doria today! Seeing them brought back a little taste of Paradise.

Brendan Robinson is best known for his role in ABC Family’s hit show, Pretty Little Liars.



Wow! After 4 long weeks of shooting, we can’t believe it’s already our last day on location here in Tempe, Arizona shooting this amazing project. We have had such a blast getting to work with such terrific actors as well as our amazing crew holding up in this crazy heat! Thank you all for your support as we now get underway on post-production.
