A tension-filled, visceral journey, "Fishbowl" beckons viewers to, "enter the world of the Simon

Already recognized as tastemaking visionary creatives and the sought-after "go to" music video production team for Grammy-winning artists Kacey Musgraves, Joy Williams, and other top-selling music acts, the Kinigopoulos siblings wanted to bring their big cinema world to their new studio home—Nashville, Tennessee—to kick-off the feature film's engagement schedule.
"We are happy to provide this look into our world of feature film and television —what we do every day—in an intimate setting," says "Fishbowl" Co-Director Stephen Kinigopoulos.
Continuing to divide their respective schedules between film locations around the world, Stephen and Alexa selected Nashville as the home for their production studio, Running Bear Films. Stephen adds, "We're proud to plant our business flag in Nashville and hope to help the city attract more of the type of feature projects we produce in other states so big-budget films and tv shows will come to Tennessee."
The other half of the dynamic co-director team, Alexa Kinigopoulos, states, "Nashville welcomed us with open arms— the music artists, labels, management companies, marketing agencies—but most of all the people we run into everyday are amazing! I am so excited to begin 2019 with so many upcoming shoots here!"
