Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Rice.
Hi Jordan, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Hello! Happy to be chatting! I am one of the Co-Founders of 4085 Productions, alongside Alex Nimrod, Maximus Jenkins, and Kaleb Manske. 4085 Productions is a student run production company that began during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Four college students (two film students and two actors), combatted their boredom through film-making. From there, 4085 Productions was formed and we produced nine films in three months.
For the next semester, we produced a film festival where we produced six short films and worked with over 50 usc students. Now, we are in post-production for a new piece of interactive media that is a choose your own adventure production (The First Friday) and a queer short film (Breathe). We are also in production for our first feature film titled All Alone Together.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Some of the largest struggles have been financially. Making high-quality films can get very expensive very quickly! Thus, we need large fundraising campaigns to fund our productions. Additionally, it has been difficult with scheduling as we are all full-time students, but this company is always a priority.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
4085 Productions specializes in creating high-quality, meaningful work that highlights untold stories in a short amount of time and a reasonable budget.
Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Creating meaningful art, watching audiences become intrigued with our work, and being able to showcase untold narratives.
