Angel Light Pictures, L.L.C. is an independent film production company. The company specializes in developing and producing quality motion pictures, documentaries, Internet media and television/cable industries for worldwide audiences.
Company Background The quality of the stories presented on film has deteriorated greatly over the years. The entire industry is searching for original ideas, but the search has yielded very little in the way of new and innovative story-telling. The major studios are producing either expensive high-tech films or remakes of previously released titles that have worked well in the past. It is left to the independents to fill the gap, and many have produced award winning and financially lucrative films. Films like Sideways, Napoleon Dynamite, Crash, and Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ come to mind as extremely successful films produced by independents with The Passion generating almost a billion dollars in gross income in 2004. Audiences who seek a moving and intellectual confrontation, as well as entertainment and unusual experiences.
