Misfire: The Rise and Fall of the Shooting Gallery

About the Film

The Shooting Gallery was one of the premier production companies for independent film in the 1990s, responsible for art-house hits like LAWS OF GRAVITY, SLING BLADE, and YOU CAN COUNT ON ME. After the success of fellow alum Hal Hartley, a cabal of grads from SUNY Purchase decided to start a fast-paced company with a can-do, DIY attitude. But success came at a cost. Many of the original founders left, as business self-interest replaced the earlier common purpose and expansion into “new media” came to the fore. Director Whitney Ransick, one of the original crew, retells a fascinating, universal story about the “Enron of independent films".

About the Director

Whitney Ransick was one of the founding members of The Shooting Gallery, the film production company that produced SLING BLADE and YOU CAN COUNT ON ME. It was in this creative independent film collective that he wrote and directed his first feature film, HANDGUN, starring Treat Williams. With the success of HANDGUN, Whitney started directing numerous television shows (HOMICIDE, E.R.) and as well as SHOCK TV, his second feature. MISFIRE is his first documentary.
