The Makers

Jupiter J. Makins

Writer. Director. Producer.

Jupiter J.

Patricia McKenzie

Producer.  Actor.

Patricia McKenzie joined Bully Fighters because she felt it was a strong story to tell.  "I read the script and wanted to give the character Reggie Shore the power I believed she had (in the meeting with the judge) with a sense of vulnerability (when she meets the mother).  I also came on board as Producer in order to bring the resources and tools I had to help make the film a great indie film.    I believe we accomplished that and more as we continue to push its message.

Special Thanks to

Douglas Bedouin, Executive Producer, who believed in Bully Fighters and helped fund the making of the film.  

His support and efforts will forever be appreciated with much gratitude.
