Every frame of ‘Fling’ is drenched in danger and desire.

In the ‘60s there was ‘Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice’; in the ‘80s ‘sex, lies, and videotape’; the ‘90s, Ang Lee’s ‘The Ice Storm’... But Muller, Boersma and a ridiculously attractive young cast put a contemporary spin on this edgy relationship movie.
— Bob Butler, The Kansas City Star
One of the top 10 films of 2008... ‘Fling’ deserves to be mentioned alongside ‘One Nigh Stand’ and ‘sex, lies, and videotape’ — two other movies that brilliantly explore taboo sexual relationships.
— Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV

Fling (internationally titled Lie to Me) is the award-winning debut feature from filmmakers Laura Boersma & John Stewart Muller.

The World), Courtney Ford (HBO’s True Blood, Showtime’s Dexter, The CW’s The Vampire Diaries) Steve Sandvoss (Rumor Has It, Latter Days), Nick Wechsler (ABC’s Revenge, The WB’s Roswell), Shoshana Bush (Dance Flick), and Ellen Hollman (Starz’s Spartacus, AMC’s Into the Badlands).

JOHN STEWART MULLER, writer/director

In 2008, they released their award-winning debut feature, Fling, which they both wrote and produced and John directed.

In 2012, they rebranded and expanded their company to encompass episodic production, brand building, web content creation, and more.
