After thirteen highly unsuccessful years in Los Angeles, two "artistic" best friends get to direct their first ever feature film: a soft-core epic entitled The Lone Rancher, designed for late night TV.

Director: Brent Florence
Stars: Bruce Abbott, Cameron Bender, Megan Bergkvist


A team of investigative documentarians set out to follow the making of a late night, made-for-television Mature Movie, to capture an inside look at mainstream American movie practices and sensibilities at their lowest. Along the way they unexpectedly meet Armondo Jones, Bill Williams, and their 'crew of friends;' all first time Mature Movie makers who find themselves in a desperate struggle against their employers to bring social value to The Lone Rancher, a soft-core epic period piece they've been hired to write, direct and co-produce. As the production spins out of control, the team of friends sidesteps the studios contractual demands of sex and nuance, risking their jobs, in a game of cat-and-mouse, scraping to protect the 'important' love story they believe The Lone Rancher can provide. On this most unlikely of battlefields: a Mature Movie set in Northern California, the documentarians capture firsthand footage of what happens when opposing groups with fundamental differences try ...

Ridiculously funny and inspiring for all artists!
7 November 2011 | by GuitarnatalieSee all my reviews

I had the opportunity to watch an early cut of this film when I met the director at Sundance. I was blown away by that cut and this final version is even better! It's SO funny but what I love even more is the humanity and the way you really feel for these characters. As a musician, I don't know much about the film industry, especially the adult film industry, but it was fascinating, HILARIOUS and inspiring to see how this crew dealt with the crazy situation they were in. A must see film for all artists and creative people following their dreams! I was curious the if something like this situation had actually happened to the people who made the film because their connection and frustration in their acting with the process was so real and honest. It was also beautifully shot and edited and the music complements it really well. I can't wait to see more from the director, cast and crew of Eagles!!!
