Loosely based on a true story and created and produced by Barry Rosenbush and Bill Borden (Emmy award winning creators and producers of High School Musical (HSM) 1, 2 and 3), “Lock and Roll Forever” is an inspirational story about an all-girl teenage band from the working class industrial city Sakai, Japan. The band is made up of real life band geeks who have just finished school and love to write and play rock and roll. They decide to travel to America in search of their rock and roll dreams. These girls call themselves, “ORESKABAND.”
The film stars teen heartthrob Lucas Grabeel from HSM, Brad Dourif, Ike Barinholtz from MAD TV and the wildly exploding upcoming band ORESKABAND. Rosenbush says, “I’m putting my time, my energy, and my money into these girls (and film) because that’s how much I believe in them.” The movie, shot on the new Sony F-23 Digital Cinema camera system, as well as the Sony Cine Alta F-900, was photographed in Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and the girls hometown of Sakai, Japan. “Lock and Roll Forever” will be released in 2009.
