ETN Studios is about to depart to the very city of Brooklyn, New York to be a part of the feature film, “Nu MOses”, directed by Cassady O’Neal.
This is sure to be an adventure.
NEW MOSES is a comedy about the new world order. What begins as a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a rapper’s debut album becomes a much larger story when the world’s greatest and most influential MC dies of a drug overdose the same day they begin filming. Driven by their own stoner paranoia, the lead characters, Frankie and his cameraman/best friend Mark, transform the behind-the-scenes into an investigative search for the killer of Nu MOses, the MC who tragically passed.
The film is set in Brooklyn, New York, the former stomping grounds of Nu MOses. It is a satirical romp through the world of the Illuminati, music industry, and the druggy deranged mind of its lead character Franklin Keyes. As Frankie rises in the ranks of the music industry he becomes an unlikely replacement as the world’s new Nu MOses. In their continued investigation of the murder of Nu MOses, they discover more and more about their fallen hero, who’s public persona seems to be the furthest thing from who he actually was.
The film deals with identity, race relations, sexuality, art, and drugs as the two white hip hop fans search for the killer of Nu MOses in the hedonistic world of the entertainment industry. Embedded in this film is a very personal story about brotherhood, drug addiction, and the loss of our heroes as told from a Truther’s perspective. A Truther is anyone who challenges the mainstream media and without the Truthers, we would not have a check on the media machine that we too often trust without question. That being said, this film is not political. It is a fun/tragic trip through the underworld of the entertainment industry as we discover what it takes to be an American icon.
