About 4MileCircus

4MileCircus is an award-winning media company owned and operated by Sean Mannion and Nicole Solomon. We are filmmakers and media educators who produce movies, music videos, podcasts, and other video content, as well as training and informational materials on how to do the same. We are currently in preproduction on two feature-length genre films while working on other smaller projects and we would be honored if you would join us.

Our focus is primarily genre media (horror, sci-fi, weird stuff), with an emphasis on inclusivity, diversity and intersectionality in front of and behind the camera or microphone. We are invested in low budget filmmaking as a way to democratize the medium, amplify underrepresented voices, and help stories we haven't seen before come to life.

Our existing projects include the award-winning feature film Mememusic videos for The Shondes and Late Cambrian The 4MileCircus and The Plot Fictions podcasts, and award-winning short films like Small TalkMare, and Rubber Ducky We frequently partner with other low budget filmmakers to lend production support to their work as well. 

Combined, Nicole and Sean have been creating movies and more for well over 20 years. We're now preparing for our most ambitious projects to date --including new feature-length films (yes, we're currently working on features, plural) and so excited to embark on these adventures with our patrons!

For as little as $2 a month, all our Patrons will have early access to new media we create and exclusive access to special patron-only content. Depending on their level of monthly support, patrons will also get: 
  • Special behind-the-scenes looks at past and future projects 
  • Access to older, in-the-vaults projects that are not available elsewhere
  • Media production training and educational materials 
  • Credits on our future films
  • Moooooooooooooooooore! Take a look at the support tiers!
25 of 30 patrons
30 active subscribers will get us a long way towards our goal of covering our monthly basic operating expenses. When we hit this benchmark we will release a special bonus episode of The Celluloid Mirror, the subjects of which will be chosen by Patron vote!
