Topline Urbanworks Completes Principal Photography of "Short Fuse"

September 8, 2004

WEST HOLLYWOOD, /PR Newswire/ -- Topline Urbanworks LLC has announced that it has recently completed principle photography and is currently in post-production of their first indie film project titled "Short Fuse." The film was directed by Jon Fong and stars Demetrius Navarro (E.R., Friday), Godfrey (Soulplane, 7-Up pitchman), and Paige Moss (It's All Relative). Actors Joe Reitman (Townies), Ty Granderson Jones (Con Air, CB4), and Emilio Rivera (Con Air, Traffic, Bruce Almighty, Collateral) are also featured in supporting roles.

The story of "Short Fuse" is about a boxer, Shane (Navarro), who after being suspended for a year by the boxing commission gets a chance to fight again in Las Vegas against the super welter champion of the world, Francisco "Panchito" Bojado, a.k.a. The Baby Faced Assassin. Shane takes a road trip with his long time friend and manager, Dogan (Godfrey), and along the way, innocently stumbles into the underworld of drugs. In their attempt to remedy the situation, they meet Sophia (Moss) who tries to help them.

Los Angeles and its sprawling urban environments provided the scenery for "Short Fuse," which is one of the elements that Topline Urbanworks is dedicated to -- filming in their own backyard. The small crew consisted of mostly minority talent who worked hard and yet produced a quality project.

Herbert Dogan III, Humberto Arechiga, and Scott Weissman created Topline Urbanworks in October 2003. This unique film production company located in West Hollywood has been quietly incubating a slate of film and entertainment projects. Recently Topline Urbanworks announced that it would enter into a joint venture with Cardinal Capital.Net Inc. to form a company called Topline Capital Ventures, which plans to raise $20 million dollars to finance a slate of urban entertainment projects that Topline Urbanworks will produce.

Unlike other indie film production companies, Topline Urbanworks prides itself in being a real independent production company with a mission -- to merge top quality film projects with minority talents for both above and below-the-line positions.
