4-PACK RELEASE DATE TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH
Greetings, friends and welcome to our August Newsletter. There have been quite a few great newsworthy items that have been happening in the past few weeks! Thanks again for all of your support!
RELEASING OF THE FILMS: The day is finally upon us to release the films. On Tuesday, September 30th, we will be releasing 250 special editions of our “Movie Four Pack” Each DVD set will come Serial numbered, signed and will contain a nice booklet insert. The films included in the set will be MUD, I’M SORRY, 2, and MONSTER IN THE WOODS. The sets will retail for $49.95 + shipping and will be sold on a first come-first serve basis. In the future we may release more copies of the films, but never in this way again. This is a one-time deal and we wanted to make it special. If you’d like to order, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
THE ADVENTURES OF TEENI: We are now starting the Post Production process of The Adventures of Teeni. So far we have only put together a few scenes, but they are looking very good. Everyone did a great job and we can’t wait for you to see the progress. Expect a “Teaser Trailer” very soon.
WBLM/WCYY- This past month we worked with WBLM and WCYY in a variety of ways. First we filmed the rooftop performance of Dropkick Murphys performing live for the first time the song “The Chosen Few”. The video can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svvhq8SWi_0
Next we filmed STAIND performing an acoustic set at the WCYY “Ice Cream Social” A video we shot for the song “Believe” can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ8NiyR-OOY
Both bands put up links to the videos on their official websites. Then at the Big Easy we got to see the WBLM band perform once again. A video of this great event will be coming very soon!
PARANORMAL FILES: We’ve edited our Ghost Hunting series down to four episodes that will air each week in October. This series follows around professional “Ghost Hunters” and teaches the viewer about what tools you’ll need to start hunting your own ghosts. It also explores some of Maine’s “Haunted History” and finishes up the month by following the Ghost Hunters into one of Maine’s most haunted places for an official “Ghost Hunt”. Each new episode will be uploaded to youtube every Monday morning starting in October.
MOTION MEDIA WEBSITE: Our new website www.motionmediaentertainment.com is up and running. Please take a moment to visit and send us your feedback. It is still a work in progress, but eventually will be the umbrella website for all of our projects. Special thanks to Shane Trusty, our Webmaster who we highly recommend if you are in the market for a website.
FILM SCREENINGS: We’re currently looking to partner up with some of New England’s Movie Houses to show our films. If you own, or know of anyone who owns a theatre and might be interested, please email Andy at email@example.com. We are also looking for someone who would like the opportunity to become our Booking Coordinator for these types of events.
INDEPENDENT FILM BOOTCAMP: Many of you have asked for it, and we figured out a very cool way to offer up some interesting film classes. The classes will consist of 15 people and run from November 1st to the 8th, each day 8-10 hours long. Each class would be a sort of “Boot camp” for Independent Filmmaking. We’ll take you from creating a story idea, to filming it, then editing it. At the end of the course, we’ll have created various “Viral Videos” that the world can see as well as a short film that can be entered into festivals, etc. and each participant will go home with a DVD of the completed work. This will be a class for all types of people who want to enter the world of filmmaking from actors to directors. Classes will be filled up on a first-come first served basis and will be $600 per person for the entire 7-day course. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up today as spaces are filling fast.
THE WRONG HOUSE: This September Motion Media Entertainment and Emptyhouse Film will be partnering up with Wisdumb Productions to shoot our sixth feature length film, titled “THE WRONG HOUSE”. It was written by Shawn French of Wisdumb Productions, will be co directed by Andy Davis and Shawn French, Executive Produced by Olin Smith and shot by Andy Davis. The film tells the brutal tale of a group of friends who decide to rob the “Wrong House” and the fates that befall them. A website for the film will be up soon at www.emptyhousefilm.com
STACEY’S COUNTRY JAMBOREE: This past month we completed work on the Stacey’s Country Jamboree Retrospective DVD. The DVD comes packaged with a bonus CD and is available to order at: www.staceyscountryjamboree.com
The Legend from the North is back for all of you who remember this popular series from the Bangor/Brewer area. The DVD/CD package showcases many of the highlights of this long-running series that featured amateur performers singing country and western songs. Long before American Idol and years before Star Search, this program ran longer than Gunsmoke and for those of you who remember, you just may see someone you know in it!
NEW TEAM MEMBER: Winston Brooks Parsons Sr., an investor of ours from our first feature length film MUD has joined Motion Media Entertainment as a member of management committee of Motion Media Entertainment. In the past, Brooks held the position of Senior Vice-President, Director of Dream Fulfillment at John Paul Mitchell Systems 1990-2006 and was in charge of all local radio, television and entertainment-celebrity events, charity events, sports marketing, special events, worldwide productions. Brooks currently also serves as President of The Winston Group,Ltd. a company that specializes in the placement of people and properties associated with the entertainment industry.
Lastly, we’d like to thank our amazing crew of talented people for sticking by our side for the last few years. We hope to continue working with you all for many years to come.
