Welcome to Bassett House Pictures.

Bassett House Pictures was named in the spirit of our founder’s experience when he first moved to Los Angeles. You may know Jean Elie as Ahmal Dee on HBO's "Insecure", playing Issa Rae's know it all younger brother, or from earlier work on shows like American Crime and The Eric Andre show. Or you may have heard him (but didn't know it was him) on Alvinnn and the Chipmunks.

In 2010, Jean left Brockton, Massachusetts to live out his Hollywood dreams. He landed in a little town called Van Nuys and moved into a mustard yellow house with five people from all over the world. They all came to L.A. with a dollar and a dream. That home was on Bassett Street and it was a hub for an array of people who were developing their careers in film, TV, media, and more. One of the roommates created her own talent agency, another is a celebrity hairstylist, and one became a regular on Tyler Perry's show, Love Thy Neighbor. It was a revolving door for a cast of characters, and a house for a family of creatives.

With Bassett House Pictures, we invite you to create with others from all walks of life, learn the best ways to accomplish your creative goals, and to work together and support each other.

Right now, we're developing projects and hosting events for creatives and we need your support. We’re on a mission to cultivate an audience that will allow us to create and share our diverse slate of project and curated short films and pilot presentations. If you'd like to make this happen: CONTRIBUTE!

At Bassett House, all the roommates called each other Woomies. So every person who contributes to our cause will become a Woomie. Depending on your contribution, you will be sent updates, special invitations, and added to the rolling credits of every project. We have created a monthly subscription – you can invest $5 to $100 – It's up to you. Each tier gives different benefits. Every contribution is appreciated.

Come through and help us lay this house foundation down, brick by brick.

Ok Woomies, when we reach 500 Partons we'll be able to start production on our first pilot presentation "Living Practical", A comedy series, about young college couple, Bernard and Yvette who accidentally developed superpowers and become viral sensations over night, but with their new found popularity and abilities the sanctity of their relationship and everyday lives has been thrown off course.
