AFC Film Ratings

We have taken the stance that our films should be enjoyed by all. So, our films will generally hold to the MPAA PG rating, with the obvious exception of intense action and general violence. Parents should be strongly cautioned that these films contain graphic gun play, fight scenes, chase scenes, torture, military and paramilitary fighting scenes, intense verbal exchanges, and more. We don’t recommend bringing preteen children. We also advise you to evaluate, if your young teenager is ready for this kind of intense violence.

Chanse Tham Chanthalansy


Chanse Chanthalansy, a graduate of the renowned Full Sail Real World Education started his career as a web designer. His unique ways of execution landed him a job as the head of Interactive Media without any knowledge of code. Chanse’s unique approach is his simple minded execution with detailed plannings, and his extensive knowledge of technology is what made him the “go to” for Post Production. Chanse believes his job is a game of chess, stay 5 steps ahead, always have a plan B, and sacrifice is just a way to redeem your position. After 13 YRS of experiencing multiple types of creative execution, Chanse is now the Executive and head of PP+K’s Broadcast Production.
Pete Guzzo

Pete Guzzo


Pete Guzzo should be described as a director with many visions.

Never wanting to be placed inside a creative box, always looking to expand his horizons, and forever seeking more challenges, Pete Guzzo has forged an eclectic career behind the camera.

His independent film genres have encompassed comedies, dramas, horror, children’s stories, action, sports and documentaries, each being showcased and winning awards around the world.

He has also succeeded as a commercial director winning numerous awards and has become ago-to-guy for Florida non-profits in need of quality PSAs.

Pete Guzzo’s secret is his ability to see beyond the words on the script. Each story is about the people. He delves into the back story of every person in the story, whether a major character in a film or a bit player in a PSA.

His people skills are perhaps best demonstrated through his community leadership. He is the co-founder of a Jolt Production (pairing and teaching novice filmmakers with local nonprofits who have media needs.)

He was also on the founding board of the Gasparilla Film Festival and has led numerous film and commercial directing classes.
