Veteran Filmmaker Josh Becker Hosts Detroit's Premiere of 'Morning, Noon & Night' at Landmark's Main Art Theatre
BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., April 30, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Josh Becker, known widely for his 30-plus years in the Hollywood film industry and founder of Panoramic Pictures, will host "Morning, Noon & Night," starring John Manfredi and Frank Ondorf and co-starring Carly Schneider and Alanna Foley. This intense slice-of-life film will premiere at Landmark's Main Art Theatre located at 118 N Main Street, Royal Oak, Michigan, on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at 6 p.m.
The event will open with remarks from Becker about the making of this full-length feature film and a brief Q&A. Register before May 15 to get a free ticket. http://bit.ly/MNNScreenMA. The price is $6 at the door.
"Morning, Noon & Night" was written, directed and produced by native Detroiter Josh Becker. Filmed in the Metro Detroit area, the production utilized local Detroit talent including director of photography Daniel S. Noga and music composer Joseph LoDuca.
Panoramic Pictures is an established full production studio in Oakland County and Becker has three other films in production. Becker, who grew up with the likes of Sam Rami and Bruce Campbell, is no stranger to feature films. Josh Becker has written and directed five independent feature films: "Thou Shall Not Kill … Except"; "Lunatics: A Love Story"; "Running Time"; "If I Had a Hammer"; and, most recently, "Morning, Noon & Night."
Becker’s recent release "Morning, Noon & Night” explores a day in the life of six people battling different addictions. The characters feel all too familiar as they could be your neighbor, your family or even yourself. The film functions as a mirror as it examines three college students, a history teacher, a lawyer and a top executive as they struggle to make it through a single day.
“This film gave me the opportunity to produce a great film on a low budget,” states Becker. “Detroit is a goldmine for filmmakers due to its immense talent pool. We produced 'Morning, Noon & Night' for under $100,000. It was our test run. Now, we have three new features currently in production and we plan on producing more.” Panoramic Pictures will be releasing its next full-length feature film “Warpath” later this summer.
