“In Your Face” is the first full-length Hollywood feature film production based on the game of paintball.
John Hornburg, the film’s Executive Producer, became interested in the sport of paintball when it was suggested as a plot element for another film he was developing called “The Shortcut”. After doing much in-depth research over a period of six months, Mr. Hornburg decided that a film specifically for the paintball community of five million current and past players would be potentially well received.
The script is a collaborative effort between Mr. Hornburg, his wife Kristin, and two new, young writers; Valerie Hiatt, who had written a quirky comedy entitled “Obsess Much”, and Aaron Christopher, a long time paintball player who was introduced to Hornburg by Bud Orr, founder of WORR Game Products. Aaron’s game and technical experience, combined with his excellent writing ability, brought a much needed element to the writing team as Hornburg insisted that the film portray paintball authentically.
Hornburg has hired Benjamin Sacks as the film Producer. Having been involved in the production of some twenty-three films over the past four years, in capacities ranging from Production Coordinator to Unit Production Manager to Producer, Mr. Sacks brings the necessary management skills to what Hornburg understood was going to be a somewhat difficult film to make.
The final ingredient, the director, was actually chosen quite some time before in the person of Tim Tommasino. Mr. Tommasino, feature film editor and current Senior Editor on NBC television’s “ER”, for the past four years, is an old friend of Hornburg’s. The two met when Tommasino edited the Hornburg’s documentary film about a small country circus, called “Small Top”. Mr. Tommasino, a long time extreme biker, motobiker and paintballer himself, jumped at the chance to direct. With his very considerable skills, Mr. Tommasino brings great story telling abilities to “In Your Face”.
The Mirus Productions In Your Face Movie is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

i am appauled
its not a good movie for ppl that want to prmote our sport which is what i think we should be doing
Well it has paintball, and lots of it. It has name brand products, well known gear and shows actual paintball....
But that paintball is Hollywood at its worst and leaves a cheesy after taste only Wisconsin cheddar could rival. Horribly over-used plot line and stupid remarks that render the game play hilarious, you really can't watch it without wondering if they even checked over to make sure they were'nt over-doing it.
With funny but not meant to be comments in-game (which should have been the strong point of the movie,) it fails to bring paintball to carry a movie plot. But what the hell, its paintball, and paintball's always good.
