Prix Productions is a film production company focused on the acquisition, development and production of high-quality feature films and documentaries.



A prominent Southern family of blue-blood media moguls deteriorates at the crossroads of their past and future as it pertains to matters of death, wealth, love and their place in American journalism. Directed by Patrick Shanahan and executive produced by Rick French, the film features Reece Thompson (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER), Madison Iseman (JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE) and veteran stage and screen icon Ira David Woods III.


Danny Kehoe (Time Blake Nelson, O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?) is a man who’s safe and comfortable and bored to death with his life. In his state of despair, he looks to classic stories for inspiration. Awakened by tales of yore, he anoints himself Don Quixote to find adventure, fame and glory that will make his life worthwhile – all while never leaving his one square mile neighborhood. Also starring Jacob Batalon (SPIDERMAN) and Ann Mahoney (THE WALKING DEAD), the film was the audience choice winner at the 2018 New Orleans Film Festival and a 2020 Artois Award nominee. It is now available on Apple Streaming. Rick French served as executive producer.

The film follows Buddy Holly and fellow musicians during the late 1950s as they tour on integrated bills at the dawn of rock n’ roll. It was an era of exploration for music and society, and a period that would change the course of civil rights and American history. The film is being directed by Oscar winning director Bruce Beresford (DRIVING MISS DAISY) and is being produced by Rick French and Stuart Benjamin (RAY) from a screenplay written by Patrick Shanahan, and a story conceived by Mr. French and Stephen Easley, general counsel to Buddy Holly’s widow, Maria Elena Holly. It is expected to go into production in early 2021.

Based on Nick Schuyler and Jere Longman’s #1 New York Times best-seller, the true story follows four friends on a fishing trip 70 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico as their boat capsizes and they are left stranded at sea and struggling to survive amidst the fiercest storm to hit the Gulf region in a quarter century. The film, starring Miles Teller (WHIPLASH), produced by Rick French and executive produced by NFL superstar Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara, is a dramatic story of brotherhood forged by four men who used their years of playing football at the highest levels to work together in an effort to stay alive as the U.S. Coast Guard mounted the largest search and rescue effort in its storied history. The film is scheduled to begin production in Fall 2020.
