THE INCOHERENTS

Editor: Jared Barel
Writer: Jeff Auer
Producers: Jared Barel, Jordan Barel, Jeff Auer, and Alex Emanuel

THE INCOHERENTS is a feature film in development as a coproduction between Loaded Barrel Studios, Starna Productions, and Ronan Jean Productions. The film is about a middle-aged guy who gets his '90s band back together. It's about holding on to your glory days and finding a way to keep fighting for your dreams even when the rest of the world has written you off as being "old."

The film features Annette O'toole (Smallville), Amy Carlson (Blue Bloods), Robert McKay (Hidden Figures), Margaret Anne Florence (Sun Records), Chris Barron (lead singer of The Spin Doctors), and Jimmy Gnecco (lead singer of Ours).

We've wrapped production and are deep into post production, however, investment opportunities are still available for completion funding. For more information please go to www.incoherents.com. For opportunities to help support the cause and donate to our already successful campaign please go to our indie-gogo campaign HERE.

Since we're up to our neck in post production, there isn't a lot to show you just yet, but to get an idea of what we're up to, please check out a teaser trailer we shot to help sell the concept below:
