Google Founders to Finance Indie Film

It's good to have friends in high places -- at least that's what Reid Gershbein has found out. The computer graphics designer turned film director has received financial assistance from Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page to pay for his independent film. Called "Broken Arrows," the film is a story of a man whose wife is killed by a terrorist attack, driving him to become a hitman to deal with her death.

Gershbein, Brin and Page became friends in the late 1990s at Stanford. Costs of production are estimated to be $1 million, and the two have contributed roughly half that. The final version is hoped to see its debut at film festivals in the fall of 2006.
