“Naked Brown Men,” the new indie Digital feature produced by “NBM,” has just completed principal photography on September 1, 2001. “Naked Brown Men” stars Dante’ Basco (best remembered as Rufio in Steven Spielberg’s “Hook”). Also starring are Dante’s real life Actor/Singer brothers Derek, Darion and Dion Basco and hip-hop artist Adam G (Love Child).
“Naked Brown Men” is best described as a Hip-Hop Comedy for the 21st Century. Four Filipino American brothers who are actors and audition against each other for roles in Hollywood, are also roommates. Their crash pad is a revolving door for hot girls and eccentric actor friends. When one of the Basco brothers lands a role, they all sink their money into their fledgling Rap Group ‘Fly Brown Dragons.’ Their actor friend/manager (played by Adam G) is shopping them around to the Record Labels for a record deal, all while crashing on their living room couch. Adam G is the lead singer in his band named (Love Child) that plays club gigs with the ‘Fly Brown Dragons.’
A beautiful young girl/groupie “Faith” (played by Hilliary) gets between Dante’ and Darion. As a result, comedy and trauma/drama ensues in the wake of a big concert. These friends and brothers work through jealousy, love, hatred, passion for their dreams and music. One of the many twists and dynamics in this complicated Drama-comedy is that the brothers play themselves in the movie and the movie is actually about their “Real Lives.” The Basco brothers bare their souls to the naked truth.
