Synopsis

In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protege younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing. From the producers of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and featuring narration by James Remar (THE WARRIORS), THE FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphant montages and neon street wear that Moviefone calls "a rare ready-made cult hit."

About the Directors

Jason began writing and acting, finishing a dozen feature length screenplays, as well as shooting numerous short films and independent features. Brandon focused on cinematography and enrolled in the Los Angeles Film School. He quickly moved into a promising career, with more than twenty feature films under his belt including: Crank: High Voltage starring Jason Statham; Halloween II; SNL feature film MacGruber; and Rob Zombie's upcoming LORDS OF SALEM.

Together as aspiring filmmakers they continue to make films together, known for their creative style and outlandish sense of humor. Their first film, The FP, has created an unbelievable underground response to what promises to be an incredible career for The Trost Bros.
