Metamorphose Films is an Atlanta-based production company founded by award-winning documentary filmmaker, Juliet Sonnenberg. Metamorphose Films is dedicated to the idea of change in our environment and society through information, education and vocation. We have produced award-winning documentaries, shorts and promotional videos, and we are currently in Pre pre-production for our first indie feature film, The Beneficiary, a comedy based on an unbelievable true story.
We began our journey in the majestic mountains of Wyoming. Amid the breathtaking sights of the Grand Tetons, we created our first feature film: the award-winning documentary Hoot in the Hole – the story of the Jackson Hole Hootenanny. Chronicling the famed Jackson Hole Hootenanny, a folk and country jam held every Monday at Dornan’s in Moose, Wyoming since 1993, Hoot in the Hole introduces us to the stupendous talent in this vibrant mountain community. This folk music documentary received an award for Excellence in a Music Documentary at the Park City Film Music Festival. It features some of the most talented musicians and best live folk and bluegrass music in the country, and you can catch it airing on Public Television during the spring and summer months.
Our second film project was Methidemic, an 8-episode documentary that features the individual responses of specific communities to the methamphetamine crisis in the U.S. Documented are the struggles of the addicted as well as the families, medical personnel, government and law enforcement answering the call to this epidemic. In this raw but hopeful portrayal, we meet the brave people and programs at the front lines of the war on meth in four states; Utah, Idaho, Montana and Georgia. It is our sincere hope here at Metafilms that Methidemic will be a valuable resource for addiction, education and prevention. Visit Methidemic.com for more information and viewing of episodes.
We have also had a lot of fun with the Zombie trend that infected the nation and Atlanta specifically, with films and shows like “Zombieland” and “The Walking Dead” being shot locally. In 2009, Juliet Sonnenberg wrote, produced and directed a one-day spec film Zombie Juice, about an energy drink with precarious consequences. Meta Films came in with a second installation in 2014 with over 100 volunteers, 20 makeup artists, a full crew and Basecamp in the back of the EARL. Check out Zombie Juice! 2014 and see some of your favorite Atlanta talent and locals get their Zombie on!
