An independent production company committed to telling inventive, compelling, and intelligent stories.
Six Part Productions is Conor Stratton, Lauren McCune, Josh Evans, Matthew Klein, and Kelly M. Johnston. We work together in all sorts of mediums with a common goal of telling great stories.
Six Part Productions was formed in 2009 by actor-producer Lauren McCune and filmmaker Conor Stratton in order to produce Stratton's first feature, Killing the Dog, Six Part has since been joined by actor-producer Josh Evans, writer-producer Matthew Klein, director-producer Kelly M. Johnston, and writer-producer Rebecca Jane Stokes.
Killing the Dog, Six Part's first feature, premiered in 2013 at the Take Two International Film Festival in New York City, where it won the Manny Award for Outstanding Feature, and has since screened as an Official Selection of the 2013 NewFilmmakers Independent Film Festival, the 2013 New York City Independent Film Festival, and was Runner Up for Best Action Sequence at the 2012 Action on Film Festival. In 2012, Six Part Productions and Hideout Hill Entertainment co-produced the short film Annabelle, which was an official selection of the 2012 Cannes Short Film Corner.
Six Part also premiered the short film Between I & You, written by Matthew Klein and directed by Conor Stratton, at the 2014 NewFilmmakers Independent Film Festival. Between I & You was also an official selection of the 2014 Take Two International Film Festival.
Six Part's theatrical ventures include producing a workshop production of Matthew Klein's Post Concussive Syndrome, directed by Jaki Bradley at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre in New York City, and Love Drunk, a brunchtime reading series that has run since 2014. Six Part also began producing full length workshop productions in 2015. We kicked things off with The Assistant written by Ashley Minihan, followed by The Skin written by Rebecca Jane Stokes, and most recently with Dead For A Ducat written by Matthew Klein. All three of these workshop productions have been fortunate enough to be directed by Kelly M. Johnston. We're excited for our upcoming workshop production of Kitty, Cappy, Gypsy, & Snake written by Elizabeth M. Kelly and directed by Alfredo Narcisso in October 2016, which was born out of a piece written for Love Drunk.
Six Part has also produced music videos for Julia Weldon, Alyssa Robbins, and The Stationary Set.

Matthew's been working at this whole theater/film/music videos/comics thing for about seven years now. He might or might not be a Timelord from the planet Gallifrey. He is however in love with creating exciting new works. He's definitely a big proponent of making, rather than waiting for, opportunities to create innovative new work and is always excited to find fresh voices to collaborate with. He's produced theater all over NYC, directed productions at festivals all over the country, and specializes in story development. If it can be written, he can write it, or help someone else write it. Matthew is currently a Sales Manager at Valiant Comics when not spending his days on set, behind the curtain, or writing from under the covers so that little guy under his bed won't get him.

Kelly M. Johnston
Kelly is delighted to be a co-creator of Dead for a Ducat. His other work stretches from coast to coast at such venues as the Alley Theatre, GeVa Theatre, the West Coast Ensemble, and the Virginia Arts Festival. He is the newest member of Six Part Productions, the former Artistic Director of the Arizona Shakespeare Festival, a co-Artistic Director of Rogue and Peasant Players, and a member of the SDC. He's the proud parent of two daughters and two cats and is married to the coolest gal in the world. Kelly is extraordinarily fond of pie.
Lauren McCune enjoys making things and making things happen. She started as an actor (like her parents before her) and has fallen lovingly into producing out of resourcefulness, impatience and a contagious enthusiasm. She produced Killing the Dog, Six Part Production's first feature, and has recently been on a kick of music videos, including "Ghost Town" by Alyssa Robbins, which was her directorial debut. In between she does a little of everything. If you need something drawn, sewn, written, produced, directed, or notarized (within the state of New York), she's the gal to call.
