The Mini Nation Revolution | A Dazzling Dive into the International Dream Team Behind the Camera
In the cutthroat world of Hollywood, it’s often the A-listers who steal the spotlight. But when it comes to Mini Nation Pictures, the real stars are the dedicated, diverse crew behind the scenes. Led by the passionate and talented Michelle Ng, Mini Nation is a testament to the power of perseverance, collaboration, and an unyielding drive to create unforgettable films.
Michelle Ng’s journey began a couple of years ago when she decided to produce a film with a friend, funding their passion project themselves. They opened the door for volunteers to join the project, and it was then that Michelle met an extraordinary group of aspiring filmmakers. Coming from different corners of the globe, these international students quickly found a home with Mini Nation, becoming Michelle’s “mini film family.”
With a mission to create a diverse team that supports each other while growing as filmmakers, Mini Nation Pictures prides itself on its ability to produce any film, no matter how difficult. Michelle Ng hopes that her crew feels a sense of pride in their work, and that viewers get to know their story as they watch the team grow through their films.
Currently, Mini Nation Pictures is hard at work on a secretive TubiTV original thriller Shark Film set in Mexico. Their most recent project, “Attack of the Meth Gator,” wrapped up and is set to be released in the summer. The highly anticipated film follows the success of “Cocaine Bear” and was made possible by the support of the Groveland, Florida community.
In post-production is a TubiTV Original horror/thriller titled “Dante’s Hotel,” starring an impressive cast that includes Judd Nelson, AnnaLynne McCord, Emilio Rivera, Ted Raimi, and Moon Bloodgood. Additionally, Mini Nation boasts a long list of films already available on various streaming platforms, such as TubiTV, Hulu, Redbox, and Amazon Prime, among others.
