A Midsummer Night’s Rave is this generation’s fantasy answer to Fast Times At Ridgemont High but set in a rave two years in the future. A group of friends share an adventure fueled by pounding beats, a magical Puck and his glowing pills, and a hot pursuit of some stolen drug money. A few well wishing fairies, an unexpected turn of events and a some changes of heart lead this entourage through one unforgettable night.

‘Rave’ features an ensemble cast including Andrew Keegan (O, Ten Things I Hate About You), Chad Lindberg (The Fast and The Furious), Sunny Mabrey (The New Guy), Lauren German (A Walk To Remember), Corey Pearson (Summer Catch), Matt Czuchry (Eight Legged Freaks), Chris Owen (American Pie 1 & 2), Jason London (Out Cold, Dazed & Confused), Greg Zola (Pearl Harbor) Oliva Rosewood (Almost Famous), Keri Lynn Pratt (Drive Me Crazy), Ted Stryker (DJ, KROQ 106.7) and Carrie Fisher (Star Wars, Postcards From The Edge). The main rave scenes in the film will feature some of today’s top DJs including DJ Irene, America’s #1 female DJ as well as Christopher Lawrence, Donald Glaude and Charles Feelgood. The film was written by Robert Raymond (Mohr Sports) and is produced by Cates and Hoeckel and Cates newly formed 10 Cates Pictures along with Hoeckel’s newly formed Radiant Media.

Last year Cates completed The Mesmerist with Neil Patrick Harris and Jessica Capshaw, which will arrive in theaters this October. Previously Regent Entertainment released Cates’ directorial debut Spent starring Jason London, Charlie Spradling, Richmond Arquette, Rain Phoenix, Barbara Barrie and Margaret Cho. Cates also wrote the Spent screenplay that examines the relationships and addictions of a group of twentysomething friends.

Summer Forest is known to electronic music lovers as the producer of the rave documentary RISE and as a co-author of the rave flyer compendium Searching For The Perfect Beat: Flyer Designs of The American Rave Scene. She also recently released her first electronic music compilation Defining Tech on Orbisonic Records that was top ten in the CMJ dance chart for seven weeks. Prior to her move west in 2001 she was the photo editor for Interview Magazine and shoot producer for Annie Leibovitz in New York City.

The film is expected to be released in 2003. Moonshine Music will be releasing the soundtrack.
