Bellerophon Media, Lost River Productions and SurealWorks announce the Official Premiere of the comedic short “Not 2B Toyed With”.


Obsessive STAR WARS toy collector Troy is about to discover the power of the dark side when his nephew invades his perfectly packaged world. What’s a toy supposed to do?


Tucson, AZ [October 7, 2006] Award winning filmmakers and television producers enlisted elite film crew and cast to film the short production "Not 2B Toyed With”.  Executive Producer Steve Bayless is an Emmy-Award winning editor.  His work is seen each week on PBS stations nationwide in the The Desert Speaks series produced via KUAT-TV, the PBS affiliate in Tucson, AZ.  Steve has written the 12-minute script as homage to his friend Rusty Smith, who passed away 3 years ago. Rusty, who suffered from the debilitating disease Cystic Fibrosis, was an avid STAR WARS collector since childhood. He and Steve had hoped to one day produce their conspired concept for this short.


Join us for the first public screening at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway, and help support the Tucson Cinema Foundation. ($3 suggested donation) Festivities will start Saturday October 7th, at 11am. There will be special guests and more, so bring your cameras!
