In the Floridian summer of 2017, brothers Andrew Paul Davis & Timothy Mark Davis acted together in Sam Shepard's "True West." This experience cemented a partnership as artistic & professional collaborators, expanding on previous foundations of brotherhood & tomfoolery. And there was a quote in the play: "One county's as good as another."
The play closed. Andrew returned to Indiana to finish his degree while Tim continued growing Fort Lauderdale-based theatre company, New City Players. Andrew had made 20 short films since 2011, and the time had come to make the jump to feature-length. He drafted "Palace" during the throes of True West, and planned for a March 2018 shoot. The crowdfunding, production, & post-production were ultimately successful, but there sat a need to incorporate and take on future projects with higher levels of process. In one of their late-night parking lot chats, Tim said, "I wanna start a film company with my brother." And so they did.
"Palace" premiered at the 2018 Heartland International Film Festival, and the brothers began work on a second feature, Pompano Boy: written/directed by Andrew and produced by Tim. Production took place December 2019 - January 2020 in South Florida.
