Memphis-based film production company Paper Moon Films has started work this week on its fourth feature film, “Forty Years from Yesterday.”

The film is getting a 5-week shoot in King City, Calif.

From Paper Moon:

“FORTY YEARS FROM YESTERDAY will be Robert Machoian & Rodrigo Ojeda Beck’s first feature film. Their short film CHARLIE & THE RABBIT premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, which led to the honor of being named to Filmmaker Magazine’s prestigious 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2010. Their short films ELLA & THE ASTRONAUT and WAITING ROOM screened at numerous festivals worldwide such as the Los Angeles Film Festival, Dallas, Starz Denver and many others while picking up several awards and praise along the way.

FORTY YEARS FROM YESTERDAY is being produced by Nick Case and Ryan Watt of Memphis-based production company Paper Moon Films. The film will be shot by cinematographer Alexander Sablow, who has gained strong praise for his work on the 2012 SXSW film PILGRIM SONG.”

In other news, Paper Moon’s third feature film, “The Romance of Loneliness”, will have its Memphis premier next month at the Malco Paradiso on Sept. 12.
