ABOUT OMAR PARKER, THE ACCLAIMED FILM PRODUCER HAS BEGUN A NEW VENTURE INTO THE WORLD OF WEB CONTENT.

Omar Parker (22) is the co-founder of Egerton Crescent Productions, known for El Eden (2016), Damiana (2017), and Ultraviolet (2018). While still an undergraduate, he had produced short films that premiered at Berlin, Cannes, Sundance, Tribeca, and Tiff. Even more amazing, he was one of the first individuals to ever be a producer on two separate Sundance shorts both in competition at the same time. He also was one of the youngest producers to be in competition in any category at Cannes, at the young age of nineteen. Other notable films include features The Burying Party (2018), which is currently available on Amazon Prime for streaming, and Luz (2019), which premiered at Sitges late last year.

 

Now Omar has begun a new venture, seeking to expand his success stories to web content, having started the web series Captain’s Log, which can be found at their YouTube page of the same name, and soon at the now under construction captainslog.tv. The content aims to be a fan central brand, helping to explain and explore new events in the fandom. The web series will also be a place of fan discourse and celebration. Omar has stated that he intends to host numerous series, some including some surprise guests in the near future.

In addition to his old business partner Charlie Burt, Omar has added a new partner Jonathan Gower into the fold. Jonathan Gower and Omar Parker met in college while getting their B.A. in Film at Montana State University. Gower has worked as a production coordinator at Egerton Crescent Productions before, and has written and directed comedy films with Omar in the past like Puppetmania (2015) and Raw Sauce (2016). He has been described in videos by Omar as “the biggest Trekkie he knows,” and “a leading Trekkie expert.”

So far the channel has garnered nearly nine thousand subscribers despite having only been around for ten weeks. When asked about why he founded the channel, Omar said he was aiming to produce more relaxed content. “...most of my life has been big franchises, fandoms, YouTube, and gaming. Making this kind of content is what I’ve always wanted to produce. I really do enjoy film producing, but i'm not a big art film guy.”

Omar can be contacted through the Captain’s Log webpage or through their YouTube channel page.
