ATKA FILMS       ABOUT       PROJECTS       STREAM       SIGN UP       CREWING/CASTING       FILM FUND       AF+       JUST ACT FILMS

JUST ACT FILMS is an overflow production company for Atka Films for the short projects that are not green-lite under Atka Films. These projects are all shot on an ultra low budget-and or volunteer basis; all participants are volunteers and producers who work together as a team; in a CoOp environment. With a mind set more to challenge people to really think about how to get a project done, when a budget is tight or non-existent. Just Act Films is also now taking over more primarily as Distribution for Atka Films and it affiliates. Just Act Films was created more as personal group driven production team; to give something back to people who struggle to get projects off the ground.  It's a mentorship group in ways, educational, and equal share.  You can read all the details by downloading the PDF's. The projects that are created are not designed for mass market appeal or even designed to be in festivals or to get distribution by large corporations; based on mass appeal and glitz. They are stories that have a deep impactful message, which is what these projects focus on as opposed to image and ever-all design. But that does not limit these productions to be left and forgotten-as distribution to the festival circuit, tv, and other are always on the table.

Atka Films Reality is exactly what it sounds like: a new extension of Atka Films that specifically creates reality and documentary videos and films. We realized that we already had a large collection of reality videos and films, which we have not yet released as this was not our original plan. But now we figure, why let it go to waste. Below is a list of projects that are either in development or are completed and waiting to be released.  Watch free on our third YouTube channel. Below is a list of shows that we will be releasing on this channel. We strive to provide our behind the scenes services to production groups at low rates and or free to create Behind The Scenes/Making of Videos for productions for all level of producers. It's a great gift to be able to give to the crew and cast.  If you would like a Behind the Scenes video created please contact us here.

PRODUCTION NOTES

some productions may have already been released by another company in previous years; some are brand new productions produced by us or others and we are just the acting distributor.  Release dates are dates of our distribution not production dates.

Atka Films 2 is everything we have ever produced not released for festivals or on your main channel which are mostly films which are scripted and produced at a higher quality. Most of these are more videos than films or movies, and some are from when our producers where in school(college, high school).  Merely just the idea now: why create something if you're just going to put it into a drawer. And it reminds us that there is always place to improve and move forward and to be humble.
