The Story of Slice of Americana Films
Slice of Americana Films was born in a pub that had a great jukebox, cheap happy hour, and free freshly made popcorn. The pub was a hangout for people from all walks of life. There were a cast of characters there who had ideas to do this and that but things hadn’t quite panned out for them yet.
There was one guy who was a fan of the author Hunter S. Thompson who said he would only write his forthcoming novel on an old typewriter. He hadn’t found the right typewriter yet so that was causing a delay in writing the novel. The pub was a true “Slice of Americana” and led to branding entertainment under the Slice of Americana Films creative banner.
Writer/Producer/Director Sid Kali is best known for hard-hitting indie movies that feature gritty human conflict and provocative plots. Currently, his movies are distributed domestically and internationally. His video programming is being shown by cable/satellite providers on Pay-Per-View (PPV) and Video-On-Demand (VOD). It might sound like Slice of Americana Films is a one-person show, but that is not the way it is.
East Coast based Producer/Editor/SEO Expert Tim Beachum joined the team in the early days when Sid found himself in post-production trouble. Tim was close to doing post-production work for a bigger rival reality video series, but Tim decided to pass on that opportunity and throw in with Sid to produce entertainment.
This producing team has since gone on to release movies, VOD, PPV programming under the flag of Slice of Americana Films. Having creative types that have grown up on different coasts gives this indie production company a fresh take on entertainment.
Slice of Americana Films film blog is fueled by sharing honest experiences and information with people that want to make movies NOW and not SOMEDAY. Stick with this screenwriting, directing and producing blog to be informed and entertained. Thanks for visiting and spread the word the Slice of Americana Films blog is out there.
