With universal pictures veteran, Houston producer Chasen Parker accomplices

One of the reported films is set in Houston during the breakdown of Enron.

Numerous producers get together and move to Los Angeles to additional their professions.

Very few move to Hollywood and wind up framing a creation organization with a studio veteran of 25 years. That is what befallen Houston chief Chasen Parker who has collaborated with John C. Lobby, who had been the chief VP of conveyance and promoting at Universal Pictures for 25 years, and Nick Scherma, prime supporter of Lokal Productions, to frame Cardinal Trio Pictures.

The organization has declared three movies, one of which is a Houston-set “Untitled Enron Project,” which being set “in a revisionist’s history 1999” where “an employee at Enron starts to figure out what the crooked real-life executives are up to and attempts to blackmail them, but upon humiliating him, he leaves with a plot of revenge.” Parker will coordinate.

Parker, 26, whose Texas-shot film “American Fishtrap” was chosen to be displayed in the Short Film Corner at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, says Cardinal Trio Pictures occurred through a unintentional gathering soon after moving to Los Angeles. Parker met Hall at a foundation occasion to which he had been welcomed ultimately. The two stayed in contact and afterward, in 2019, Hall came to him with an offer.

“He approached me and was like, ‘Hey, so I’ve been always wanting to make this move over to producing films and to be working on that side of things outside of the offices and really on set’,” Parker says. “And he’s like, ‘I know you’re a filmmaker. You’ve had some shorts go to Cannes. Do you have an idea for a project that you want to do?’ ”

That is when Parker tossed out his Enron thought.

“He fell in love with it immediately,” Parker says. “John actually has Texas roots, he went to TCU and so he really loved just everything about it.”

At that point Scherma was welcomed ready. “Simultaneously, I was getting to know our third partner. A friend of mine pitched him to me as ‘Your twin brother who does all the physical production stuff you’ll ever need’,” Parker recalls. “I handle all the creative, having somebody that really understands the physical side of production was definitely a necessity in life.”

Parker says he desires to shoot the Enron film in Houston, not Georgia, Louisiana or New Mexico where so numerous Texas-set Hollywood movies are shot because of those states having more liberal duty motivations.

“I really love filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers, Martin Scorsese, Edgar Wright. And for me doing a stylized film about Houston in general is something that has really never been done (and it’s) to really be that love letter to Houston and the people of Houston,” Parker says. “The idea is to really shoot this thing in Houston if we can.”

He needs to begin recording this mid year, pandemic willing. Different movies declared from Cardinal Trio are: “Killer,” a spine chiller coordinated by Michelle Cutolo and composed by T Zhang around two analysts following a chronic executioner to Colombia; and “The Token Groomsman,” a lighthearted comedy composed by Hall.

Parker is initially from Southern California where, at four years old, he started acting in different TV arrangement, for example, “Seventh Heaven,” “General Hospital” and “Sunset Beach.”

Be that as it may, at that point he moved to The Woodlands.

“My dad’s side of the family lived primarily in Los Angeles. And so right around when (“Sunset Beach”) was on and kind of came to a close, my mom decided it was time for me to have that change in my life, have a bit more of a normal upbringing, get some Texas in me,” says Parker, who went to The Woodlands High School and Sam Houston State University prior to moving to Emerson College’s film program in Boston. “And it was the best decision she ever made because Houston and all of the things that come along with it, I think really helped shaped me.”
