Total Momentum Productions Fund First Georgia-Based Film Maker; Announces Slate of Family-Friendly Films with Tammy’Dele Films
Georgia-based film and TV production company Total Momentum Productions, LLC, (TM) is pleased to announce it has completed an agreement to fund a slate of independent films with Georgia-based film company Tammy’Dele Films (TDF).

The films, to be directed by Tammy’Dele founder and principal Tammy Williams, will focus on family-friendly content. The initial slate will be comprised of three films, Dempsey The Dog, Rescue Sal, and Ernie & Cerbie ("Ernie and Cerbie" trailer), the first to be released the fourth quarter of 2018.

From casting, crew hires, to setting up the pre-production office, and other director responsibilities, she was hands-on.”
The TM business model is to help fund and green light Georgia-based filmmakers with completed scripts, budgets, and a strong production team. TD Films have proven the model as they have completed scripts, budgets, and global-distribution of three projects in post-production.
