FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Indie Drama Scrapper Set for Multi-Platform Home Entertainment Release
LOS ANGELES, Calif., April 2, 2014 - Grinning Man Media Group announces the official release of its latest film Scrapper, available for home entertainment April 1st on DVD and On-Demand in all formats, including cable/satellite, iTunes, Google Play and Amazon On Demand.
Scrapper burns with a quiet intensity, thanks to its star Michael Beach (Sons of Anarchy) as Hollis Wallace, the industrious 'scrapper' who supports himself and his sick mother by scavenging and selling cast-off copper, aluminum and other valuable metals. When Hollis meets troubled 18-year old Swan (newcomer Anna Giles), the two forge an emotional connection that breaks boundaries and changes their lives forever.
Co-stars Aidan Gillan (Game of Thrones, The Wire), Rachel Blanchard (TV's Clueless), Joanna Angel and Jennifer Lanier round out a solid cast of players that deliver forceful, complex performances that resonate throughout the small film, skillfully made on a tiny $50,000 budget.
Director Brady Hall's obsession with scrappers scouring his neighborhood's streets drove the movie's script, which was a learning experience for Scrapper writer and producer Ed Dougherty. "I never noticed scrappers before this movie, and now I see them everywhere, all the time. Scrap metal collecting is a huge industry... it has its own rules, lore and sense of culture."
The film premiered at last year's Seattle International Film Festival to positive reviews - "the reception was amazing," said Dougherty - and Scrapper's home entertainment arrival is a huge opportunity for more viewers to discover Hollis and the curious world he lives in.
"On the set, we had scrap metal as props," said Dougherty. "Several times a day, scrappers would come by and ask to take our props! I'd say 'No, we're making a movie about you guys and we need these'. They'd say 'Oh,' and drive on to the next find, just like Hollis would."
