Last April, three Highland Park grads and one First Baptist grad premiered the film "Beware of Christians" in Dallas at the Lakewood Theater and at local colleges, inlcuding Texas A&M and Baylor.  Tasha Hayton, from the DMN wrote an article about the Dallas premiere.  
After the local premieres, the filmmakers, Michael Allen, Will Bakke, and Alex Carroll formed Riot Studios and shopped the film to national distributors.  In a decision of whether or not to continue pursuing a third-party distribution partner, the filmmakers decided that it was best to self-distribute the film.  They took to the internet and began raising the funds necessary for a promotional tour on the site,
Recently, former WFAA Film critic Gary Cogill has teamed up with Riot Studios on their national tour and distribution release.  Since leaving WFAA, Cogill has formed his own production company, LasCaux Films. (DMN article: "Beware of Christians" is the first collaboration between Riot Studios and LasCaux Films.  Gary Cogill and his team are now Executive Producers of the film.
