LavaBean Productions started off as a group of friends who loved comedy and wanted to create style of their own
Our current productions aim to expand over to Film and Television, with a feature in post-production and a pilot currently in development.

Come celebrate an homage to Prince! 5-minute films made in 72 hours, inspired by the Purple One!
Contestants randomly chose one of five song titles from the Purple Rain album as inspiration for their films. With that song title, they were also given a line of lyric from that song and that song lyric had to be used as the last line of dialogue in their film.
Congratulations to Eddy Herrero on his Best Comedy Actor award in the PHW 72hr Film Festival feature 'Take Me With You'.
Zooppa's goal is to create a platform where artists of all specialities have opportunities to connect, grow their skills and generate compelling work. They've awarded over $5.7M to date to talented filmmakers, designers, and photographers.
Projects are how we connect creatives to big brands.
The sponsor/brand creates a brief to define the guidelines, themes, and type of content (i.e. videos, prints, and concepts) they would like to receive. Artists submit their work in accordance to the brief and judges from the brand select the winners.

WRITER / ACTOR
"Andres is our Head Writer. After first watching South Park at seven years old, he was never the same. He has been called a 'genius' by those that know him and a 'bitch brain' by those that troll him. If you see him on the street, ask for his autograph or give him a wedgie. Your choice."
