Los Angeles, August 10, 2011 – Troy Duffy (Creator of The Boondock Saints franchise) announced today the pre-sale availability for the launch of a documentary feature film, “Off The Boulevard,” he executive produced in partnership with Santo Films.
“It’s an interesting and educational behind-the-scenes look at the struggles fellow independent artists go through in pursuit of their dreams,” says Executive Producer Troy Duffy. “It gives us an inside look at the tough lives of some up-and-coming independent artists. As we watch them fight their way through the industries of music and film, we glean words of wisdom from successful veterans of the entertainment business.”
Off The Boulevard is a story of art and heart and the dedication it takes to achieve your dreams. It is an entertaining and informative documentary feature film about seven artists: two musicians (Nick Nicholson, Keith Jackson), two filmmakers (Troy Duffy, Jeff Santo), two actors (David Della Rocco, Sanel Budimlic), and one comedian (Bob Rubin), whose friendships are created through struggle and perseverance.
The film features industry insights from well-knowns such as: Peter Fonda (Easy Rider), Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds), Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), Sonny Barger (Hell’s Angels), Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Adams), and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam).
“Off The Boulevards follows seven artists on different paths but with the same goal- to fulfill their dreams,“ says Jeff Santo, Director. “This film transcends the world of entertainment and my hope is it will inspire all who strive to pave their own road.”
Ain’t It Cool News claims it’s “Phenomenal in every sense of the word. 4 stars.” Detroit Metro Times writes it’s “Essential viewing for anyone getting ready to go up against a giant.”
