Ten Cent Adventures was created in March 2008 and our current development slate includes fiction features, television mini-series, documentaries for cinemas and broadcast, and short films by both beginners and acclaimed filmmakers and artists. We work hard to keep everything we do creative, innovative, and engaging, and hopefully you’ll soon be checking us out because you’ve seen one of our films and felt something in your heart and gut you’ve never felt before.
A ten cent adventure is what comic books used to be called, back during the 1930s and 1940s, when entertainment was affordable and democratic, and for just a dime, any kid in America could walk up to a newsstand or comic shop every week and have a choice of hundreds of various adventures to go on, from jungle stories to superhero epics, from detective yarns to supernatural spookiness, from weepy romances to funny talking animals. Most comics were cheaply printed, cheaply drawn, cheaply written, and cheap to buy – but they were portable, entertaining, and often originally daring stories that captured the fears and ambitions of their age better than any other mass media – and while no one was watching, they pioneered new ways of communicating visually, influencing in some way almost every filmmaker working today.
In our own way, we hope to live up to that versatility, that energy, and that popularity. These aren’t your grandpa’s movies.
