How We Got Our Name

In 2001, two days after 9/11 our little dog, McQueen, was stolen out of our yard. He was a wedding present and was greatly loved.

The loss of McQueen was heartbreaking and we were not willing to take it lying down. We went to great lengths to get him back, including following the advice of a pet communicator! and stalking what later proved to be an innocent man. While we felt we were close, after four months of searching we had to accept that we would probably never see McQueen again.

In 2003, we made a movie about our experience, which turned out to be a very universal story. The movie found a fledgling audience and was the beginning of our company. So in honor of our little dog and in acknowledgment of all he taught us through love and loss, we named our company after him.

And, thus was born, FilmMcQueen.

In the aftermath of the slaughter of Crazy Bitches at the Hallowed Spirits Ranch, Alice has divorced Eddie and is trying to get on with life, especially since Eddie has already remarried and to someone younger than her. She distracts herself by volunteering to organize the Holiday Pageant for her son's Pre-school class, but that doesn't help much since Eddie's new wife has a 4 year old too and she joins an already fractioned group of "mommies".

The Holiday Pageant committee becomes a hotbed of conspiracies and terrible parenting. Alice drags Minnie into the mix, desperate for an ally, and Minnie is happy to help, but she's having her own issues. She's absolutely sure someone is following her and to make matters worse she's been having dreams about all her friends that died over that fateful weekend. Pretty soon her nightmares cross into reality as badly behaving mommies start turning up dead.

I've gotten a lot of flack from the gay community about casting straight actors in gay roles, but I've also cast gay actors in straight roles and I'll bet you didn't know that, but I did. I don't discriminate against straight or gay people in casting; I'm open to good acting. Let's take Kirk Geiger, who played Ty in the Sordid Lives movie. The day he auditioned for me, he was very gay. I didn't feel it was my right to ask if he was gay or straight, but I cast the best actor in the role. You know what I say to people who criticize me for that? I say, "Fuck you." In Yellow, I happen to have a straight boy playing a straight boy and a gay boy playing a gay boy, but they were the best actors for the roles.
