Filmmaker Creates Award-Winning Games to Fund MovieInnovative Board Games Will Help Launch New Movie (December 12, 2005)
After this realization last year, Wolf created four award-winning games which are now being distributed throughout the US, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Philippines. The profits from his game company will help fund Wolf's first feature "In My Sleep" which he plans to direct in 2006.
Wolf got the idea for his first game last year when a close friend wanted a way to get to get to know his girlfriend better. Wolf stepped in to lend a hand and created "You're Pulling My Leg!" to help them get better acquainted. They loved the game and months later the couple decided to tie the knot. The game went on to win multiple awards last year and sell out last Christmas in toy and game stores across the U.S.
Wolf knew he would need a variety of games to create enough profits to help his filmmaking dream become reality. So this year he created three new games which have garnered awards and praise. - "You're Pulling My Leg! Junior," "Pet Detectives" and "JabberJot." The games are packaged in trendy tin lunchboxes and Wolf has a message on the back of each game which explains why he created it. Each message is signed "Allen Wolf - Filmmaker."
If game sales continue to be successful, Wolf looks to roll cameras for "In My Sleep" by summer of 2006. The movie will be produced by Wolf and Ralph Winter, the prolific producer of many blockbusters including "Fantastic Four" and the upcoming "XMen 3." It stars Philip Winchester ("Flyboys") and co-stars Stephen Baldwin and Tony Hale ("Arrested Development").
Wolf graduated from New York University's film school and his senior thesis film, "Harlem Grace" was a finalist for the Student Academy Awards. It went on to win multiple awards and is now being distributed internationally.
After "In My Sleep" is filmed, Wolf will continue to create new games while directing his movies.
Games can be purchased at local toy and game stores or on the web at www.MorningStarGames.com.
