Beck and Woods Flashback To ‘Impulse’
Long before they heard the loud cheers for “A Quiet Place,” and the screams for “Haunt,” Scott Beck and Bryan Woods built up a sizeable catalog of films, some of which were local, featuring Quad-Cities’ actors, and some of which were put into production featuring some well-known names.
“Impulse” was one of the latter, featuring the actor Christopher Kennedy Masterson from the TV show “Malcolm in the Middle.”
Want to learn more about the film? Below is the story I originally wrote in November 2009 for my blog, What The *&&^%^*($ Is Sean Leary Thinking:
DES MOINES, November 15, 2009 – Bluebox Limited Films has announced production of Impulse, starring Christopher Kennedy Masterson from FOX Television’s hit series, Malcolm in the Middle. The short film, described as a pre-apocalyptic adventure, was shot early November around Perry, Iowa.
Impulse marks the 19th film from Bluebox Limited Films, a production company originally founded in Iowa by writers/directors Scott Beck & Bryan Woods. To date, they have produced 5 feature-length films, 13 shorts, and recently secured a development deal with MTV Films, a full movie label of the Paramount Motion Pictures Group. Beck & Woods will serve as writer/director/producers on Impulse, alongside producers Christy Sullivan and Darren Brandl.
Additional key talent includes Andrew M. Davis, an award-winning cinematographer who recently received the Laszlo Kovacs Heritage Award for Outstanding Cinematography by the American Society of Cinematographers.
Aside from seven seasons on Malcolm in the Middle, Christopher Kennedy Masterson has starred in feature films Scary Movie 2, American History X, The Art of Travel and My Best Friend’s Wedding.
Impulse is slated for completion in early 2010. For more information visit www.blueboxlimited.com.
