Frozen Stupid2:Open Water - now available on DVD or streaming
Frozen Stupid2:Open Water is a feature-length motion picture based on an original screenplay written by Rich Brauer. It is a sequel to the original film also written and directed by Rich Brauer.
Most of the original professional cast and crew returned. These included 9 SAG performers coming in from as far away as Los Angeles. Professional champion walleye fisherman Mark Martin appears as… Mark Martin!
Brauer’s feature films offer intern positions on the crew for emerging film students interested in pursuing filmmaking as a career. This gives a rare opportunity for the next generation of technicians and artists to work on a real film, with real actors. Since the Michigan Film Incentive no longer exists, these young and enthusiastic individuals appreciate this as a special and unique chance to pursue their personal artistic growth.
Many organizations and individuals in Michigan were excited about the return of our crew and the creation of this film. Among them; Roscommon EDC, the Roscommon Tourism Bureau, and the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, local tackle shop Lyman’s on the Lake (who sold almost 2,000 DVD’s of the first film) and many other businesses participated in the fun.
Frozen Stupid2:Open Water will be Brauer’s 9th feature film produced in Michigan.
Filming took place during September 2019 in Roscommon County. Post-production is underway. The finished film is expected to be premiered sometime in the summer of 2020. Stay tuned!
Northern Michigan’s natural beauty and remote character are why we live in Traverse City. The closest video production rental house is a couple hundred miles away however. So that’s also why we own a large inventory of film & video production gear. We take pride in maintaining our equipment and have confidence in knowing everything is good to go every time we roll out the trucks.

Operating in this area since 1977 has required a certain amount of ingenuity and self-sufficiency. Even more important than the gear is our experience. We've been at it long enough to know what works and what doesn't.
