Junction Now Available on iTunes!

I’m thrilled to announce that Junction is now available on iTunes as of today, July 14, 2015!   International markets will find “Junction” released as “Hostage.”  But don’t worry, if you rent “Hostage” and end up watching Bruce Willis as a washed out police negotiator that is ok…Miramax will thank you, but you won’t get the same experience as enjoying 4 strung out meth-heads cruising into Verterra Hills for a B&E that will change their lives’ forever.   So, be sure you are watching Tony Glazer‘s film not Florent-Emilio Siri’s, and I will be sure to thank you personally.

I received a few comments on social media regarding today’s release, and the comments boil down to this question, “Didn’t you already release Junction?”  I’ll explain and give you a summer reading assignment.  Summer Crockett Moore shared a great article on film release windows (originally posted by BirthDeathMovies.com) a few weeks ago on social media.  Many people “liked” the article, but did you read it?  It gives some information on basic film releasing and some good reading about the challenges we face in finding our market and making money, especially with the impact of Netflix as a major market disruptor for film releasing.

For Junction, we released in select theaters–and earned great reviews and amazing press.  That was our first release window.  Our second window was making it available on select platforms for DVD rental.  And consistent with the article, we needed to make the best use of distance between release windows.  Finally, we are where we are today, completing the digital drop to VOD platforms and giving a worldwide audience access to enjoy “Junction” via iTunes and other VOD platforms.

Thanks to FilmMovement and iTunes, Junction can now be seen everywhere.

Enjoy Junction and keep checking back….we have more movies coming for you!

SOHO International Film Festival – Why it Matters

I always look for a great story. One that gets me laughing out of my chair, or keeps me grasping on the page…furiously pushing through to the end. The kinds of stories I like…I hope you like.

I had the opportunity to read a wonderful script on Tuesday that Tom Hanks had given notes on–a story so funny and enjoyable that I made a note on page 34 that I’ve never made before.  I wrote, “I fell in love right here.” –and I drew a line across the page.

So far, I have been blessed with great stories that have found me. I haven’t had to go looking. Junction, which most of you know, found me. Trust Me, I’m a Lifeguard also found me. And the other two projects I am working on this year also found me.

Now, I can speculate that this is because Siri (yes, the voice of the iPhone) is following me on Twitter and she is secretly planting messages on your phone and email to call me when you have a great idea.  Or perhaps it’s because I was quoted in a major newspaper and one of those 1.5 million readers had my phone number and pitched me a story. (Thank you, Baltimore Sun.) But no.

That would be just another story.

You see, these stories found me because I am surrounded by talented, industrious and passionate people. People I love–that are my friends. No magic trick required, no advanced degree in particle physics or an MFA from Julliard. (I’m not knocking it either Harris, Taylor, Stephen and all my alumnus friends!).

It turns out that these people happen to be artists, actors, writers, composers, directors, producers, mechanics, electricians, foodies, bankers, inventors, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, investors, and captains of industry.  I have a friend who is partnering with NASA on the use and development of transparent flat screen televisions.  Another who is selling a new advanced motor design to the oil and gas industry that will change the way crude oil is pumped to the surface of the earth.  And another who is creating disruptive technology to compete with Google.

So what does NASA, crude oil and the people I love have to do with SOHO?

Everything.

First: SOHO is a top film festival.  It is ranked by MovieMaker Magazine and it brings out the stars!  I’ve hit my quota for name dropping, so look to their press (Get Googling!) to see all of the amazing people coming out to celebrate #SIFF2014 this year.  It also welcomed Junction last year…so we are kindred spirits.

Second: Do your research.  You’ll be surprised how many movies have walked away from SOHO with not just an award, but with distribution.

Finally:  Everyone I described, above, has been involved with movie making– from the foodie to the mechanic.  And there is one thing that they have done which I have emulated…and that is simply being around them.  They are some of the most fun, dynamic and interesting people–and they are never short on ideas…or opportunities.

So come out to SOHO International Film Festival to celebrate Trust Me, I’m a Lifeguard; The Story of Milo and Annie; My Cross to Bear, Tiger Liley Road, and Tammy.  There will be no shortage of talented, industrious, and passionate people.  Whether you are an actor, writer, looking to contribute your skills or cash, or just a big fan…

I will be there.  So should you.

Frank Scheck of the Hollywood Reporter writes, “A quietly effective thriller, strong performances, startlingly nasty narrative twists and compelling to watch. Now…with that, just go read it for yourself…heck, just buy a ticket and enjoy it for yourself. Junction opens tomorrow.

We did something a little new to the public relations world…in fact according to our reps…perhaps a first time it has ever been done in the movie world! We opened up the press screening to all film critics and reviewers around the world that have a blog and a voice….and invited them to an online/virtual press-screening of Junction.

When the RVSP’s starting coming in…we were thrilled that critics from around the world had the opportunity to screen Junction. Power to the People, er.. Bloggers!

See you at the movies!
