Segment 2 – “The Treatment” with Producer Tianna Brown

The Treatment is . . .

 an independent micro-budget feature film currently in pre-production, involving filmmakers and talent from across the country.  This is a character based suspense horror film. 6 years in the making, I wanted to bring you the audience an experience that would both frighten, intrigue, and take you somewhere you have never been. With your help we will resolve that experience. Our intent is to use your support to fund the production and special effects budget of this film.

The heart of the film begins when a reclusive and OCD hypochondriac seeks out a naturopathic doctor to cure a series of nonexistent ills, he undertakes a journey through a drug induced nightmare promising wellness but delivering utter despair. As his visions grow more terrifying and surreal, it becomes painfully apparent that the cure is indeed often worse than the disease.

A native Southern Californian, Tianna is currently the Producer for several full length
feature films and developing a television series with HBO. She has 10 years of
experience in audit and governance which consists of project management,
risk-based audits, and business process reengineering. Tianna is the founder
and owner of BCI, a global audit firm based in Los Angeles where she is the
Director of Information Technology Compliance Audit. Not surprisingly, after travelling internationally for a nearly a decade, she stays in most nights to tinker with
breathtakingly exquisite plans of world domination.
