Beyond the Frame is a behind the scenes documentary series that details the independent production processes of Mystery Dinner Studios. In Beyond the Frame: Triggers co-executive producers Tony Aaron II & Chris Carthern, with composer Otis Jones, walk you through some of the details of the creation of Triggers, a movie about conservative politics and gun violence.
An aspiring conservative politician attempts to run for office whilst avoiding dealing with gun violence and personal tragedy in the age of right-wing media. Peter Shaver, a grieving conservative political candidate running for office in Oklahoma, is making his way to an interview where he is expected to respond publicly for the 1st time to personal tragedy & the recent events of gun violence in his hometown. Throughout the day gun violence trauma triggers flashbacks to the recent events that lead to this point in his life & his political campaign.
Tony Aaron II and Chris Carthern are co-executive producers, best friends, and social justice advocates that have devoted their careers to self-producing diverse, woke, incisive, and insightful content with the uncompromising intention of permanently changing the world for all underrepresented peoples. #BlackLivesMatter
