The Official Site for the Feature Film


The Nothing is an upcoming independent feature film produced by RELEASED PICTURES LLC in Nashville, TN. It is the passion project of a four man “brain trust” in collaboration with some of Nashville’s most talented actors, artists, crew, and filmmakers.

THE NOTHING tells the story of Ren Dubbin, a man struggling to reconcile his spiritual convictions with his crippling fear of the unknown. He awakes to find himself in an eerie, ramshackle barn with four strangers. The men have no idea where they are, and no memory of how they got there. The mystery turns to desperation when they open the doors to find the barn floating in an endless expanse of emptiness and total darkness. Nothing.

The oppressive nothingness outside and bizarre events inside bring to light the men’s deepest fears, doubts, failings, and beliefs. When their situation appears to grow hopeless, the men turn to reflections on life and death, faith, God and– ultimately– the afterlife.


While we are first time feature film producers, we are long time believers. We are confident that God will make this project the success he wants it to be, because we are committed to keeping Him in the center.

-Jeff, Josh, Justin, & Derek
