About NYEH

Producer/Writer/Director Josh Folan established NYEH Entertainment in 2008 after the dissolution of Amsterdam Artists, where he produced multiple stage productions over the course of the company's two-year lifespan, including a sold-out run of Howard Korder's Boys' Life.

Teamed with Nitty Gritty Studios and Sid & Nancy Productions, NYEH produced the web series Bad Apples in April of `09, followed by numerous commercial projects to round out the year. The same team collaborated in on the 2012 romantic thriller feature film All God's Creatures, penned by Folan and available on DVD everywhere through Osiris Entertainment. NYEH's second feature, a slacker buddy comedy titled What Would Bear Do?, is currently in post production. NYEH has a number of projects currently in development.

NYEH Entertainment is a New York-based production company, and the films that make up our existing body of work embody that fact – they are stories that reflect the real, sometimes disparate, world around us, not the standard idealistic Hollywood fare. Prided on operating as an anti-Hollywood, both in the end product created and the way gone about in making it, NYEH's mission boils down to making great films at costs that are generally perceived as impossible in the industry's eye, and ultimately changing the movies you like to watch.

Filmmaking:

All God's Creatures :: 83 min. romantic thriller released in 2012



My first feature-length writing and producing venture. Also acted in it alongside Jessica Kaye, Tiffany Lee, Adam Barnett, Ginger Kroll and Carson Grant.



Synopsis: Creature of habit, Jon Smith, spends his days mindlessly working as a barista in New York City. When night falls, this seeming everyman savagely kills "filthy women" as his social outlet. A chance encounter with Delia, a young prostitute searching for an escape from her troubled past, forces Jon to confront the most terrifying thing he has ever faced in all his dark affairs - himself. All God's Creatures examines the true nature of what it means to be a monster and reveals that love is not only for a chosen few, but for all God's creatures.

What Would Bear Do? :: 89 Min. Slacker Buddy Comedy




Wrote, produced, and acted in this Ohio-set feature, in addition to taking on directing for the first time. Co-stars Avery Pearson, Graci Carli, Molly Fahey and Phil Burke.



Synopsis: Two ill-prepared slacker buddies head into the wilderness hoping their documented exploits catch the eye of their reality television survival idol, Bear. They should have left their girlfriends at home.

Writing:

Filmmaking, the Hard Way: A Cynical Case Study of the Making of All God's Creatures



Details: A cynical case study of the feature film production of All God's Creatures written by multi-hyphenate writer/producer/director/actor Josh Folan, "Filmmaking, the Hard Way" puts low budget filmmaking under the microscope by analyzing the process of making a film from top to bottom with an honesty and transparency rarely found in writings of its kind. "Filmmaking, the Hard Way" lauds itself as THE indie filmmaker bible for problem solving at the micro-budget level and is written in a voice intended to speak to the reader as a peer, not a pupil.
