Tahoe Reno International Film Festival Pays Tribute to Melissa Joan Hart










Incline Village, NV (PRWEB) August 25, 2006

Highlighting entertainment industry professionals whose life and work is a force for positive world change, the Tahoe-Reno International Film Festival (T-RIFF) today announced it will honor actor Melissa Joan Hart at this years festival.

Hart will be recognized for her conscious TV and film career during the past three decades. On Saturday, August 26th at 5:30 p.m. in the Alpine Showroom, at the Resort at Squaw Creek, the festival will pay tribute to her career. The short film she directed, Mute, will be screened that evening at 10:30 p.m. as part of the Thriller Series. Perhaps best known for her starring role on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (1996-2003), Hart has had a full career in television, film and on the Broadway stage since she began acting at age four.

“I am excited about participating in this year’s festival and appreciate being recognized for my positive, family oriented approach to entertainment,” says Hart, an actress, singer, and Vice President of Hartbreak Films, a production company she runs with her mother. “After being offered many inappropriate film and television roles as a teenager, my mom and I created our own production company. This step helped me to focus on family friendly and socially conscious entertainment projects.” Now a young mother herself, her first child was born in January of this year, Hart is even more aware of the importance to produce television shows and film that teaches or empowers people while entertaining them.

Frederick Levy will host the tribute event. Levy, a board member of T-RIFF, guides the careers of actors, authors, screenwriters, and directors as the president of Management 101. Levy also develops and produces film and television, and has written four books about the entertainment industry, including The Hollywood Way.

According to figures from FSSI, the Narnia films feature in the top five Hollywood franchises released in India, with the previous installment Prince Caspian collecting 270 million rupees ( million), putting it among the top 10 highest-grossing Hollywood films in India of all time.In September, Narnia series producer Mark Johnson previewed 30 minutes of his Dec. 10 release The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. One teenage fan, Johnson recalls, impressed him as “sweet and polite.” So when the lad e-mailed him with questions about the film, Johnson wrote back with detailed responses, discussing, among other things, the controversial addition of Gael, a character not in the original book. Ping! The recipient posted it in the form of an interview to the blog AslansCountry.com. “I saw it at 6 a.m., and I called my assistant to tell them to take it down,” Johnson says. “He has to learn you can’t take a private conversation and make it public.” The site complied and replaced the post with: “I’ve been asked to take the interview down until further notice.” But the cryptic message led readers to believe Johnson had revealed spoilers — which wasn’t the case, according to the producer. On further reflection, Johnson reversed course, and it was back up. Sounds like this kid might become a Hollywood reporter himself.

short film
by George M. Groutas

Generally movie makers release a short episode of their upcoming movies for advertisement purpose. These short film or episodes are known as movie or film trailers. These movie trailers or previews are always advertised by the producers and distributors at cinema theatres and multiplexes during the start of the already running film or during interval.

In earlier times movie trailers were shown at the end of the film in cinema theatres and for that these short advertisements are known as movie trailers. But this trend did not last for long as audience almost left as the movies finished. So now these movie trailers are usually shown at the beginning of a movie. This way audience gets attracted by the movie before its release by watching its trailer.

Producers also advertise their upcoming movies on television as well as through internet. The best place to watch movie trailers online is filmtrailer.com.

Trailers ordinarily consist of a series of selected shots or environs from the flick to be released to the general public for viewing. Since the purpose is to attract the audience, experts choose most exciting, funny, or noteworthy parts of the flick but it is often in the abbreviated form because trailer may last from less than two and half minutes as required. Trailers tell the story of a movie in a highly condensed, maximally appealing fashion. Sometimes there are more than one versions of the trailer.

You will be surprised that there are companies that specialize in making movie trailers especially known as Peliculas in Spanish for the movie studios. Sometimes movie trailers are made especially for the promotion purpose and the scenes shot for the trailer may not be found in the original movie.

Kindred Media Group Brings Smiles to Screen with “Laura Smiles”










West Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2006

Kindred Media Group announced today it has acquired universal distribution rights to “Laura Smiles”, to handle the film’s theatrical, DVD, and foreign rollouts. The film is an RKO Pictures production, produced by TedHartley and Ric Arthur. Executive Producers include Joe Di Maio, Paul Speaker, Michael Klein, and Robert Cain, and the film is written and directed by Jason Ruscio.

“Laura Smiles” recently won the Emerging Filmmaker Award at the Denver Film Festival and has been accepted by the Vail Film Festival, which runs from March 30 – April 2, 2006. Petra Wright (“Alias”, “24″), whose performance has been described as a tour-de-force, stars in this drama which is being hailed as an indie “American Beauty.”

A light-splashed meeting between two soon-to-be-married young lovers shows Laura (Wright), a fledgling actress, and Chris (Kip Pardue – “Imaginary Heroes”, “The Rules of Attraction”, “Remember the Titans”), a neophyte writer, both engaging and witty. But the good times don’t last long; Chris is killed by a passing van. Nine years later, Laura is ensconced as a solidly upper-middle-class suburban housewife with a perfect husband and an 8-year-old son. Everything around her appears staid, distanced, established… however all is not well in suburbia.

The film also stars Mark Derwin (“Dirty Deeds”, “The Minus Man”) and Jonathan Silverman (“Made”, “The Odd Couple II”, “The Cookout”) in spectacular performances. Kindred intends to release the film theatrically in the US in September of 2006, with home video to follow shortly after the film’s theatrical run.

Jeffrey D. Erb, President of Kindred Media Group said, “Petra’s performance is nothing short of breathtaking. She pulls you in and explores both the light and dark side of a manic-depressive personality. We are excited about releasing the film this year.”

Paul Speaker, President of RKO Pictures said, “From screenplay to the superb performances of the ensemble cast, LAURA SMILES navigates a universal subject with a freshness and unique balance of wit and pathos that has already resonated with critics and festivals. We, at RKO are excited to be working with Kindred to get this film in front of audiences this year.”

Joe Nicolo, Executive Vice President of Kindred Media Group said, “Laura Smiles is the type of film that makes you realize what a good experience going to the movies is.”

“Laura makes us realize how vulnerable love is,” expressed producer Joe Di Maio. “It was made with passion, and we are excited of Kindred’s involvement in the distribution of the picture.”

Producer Richard Arthur said, “LAURA SMILES invites us into a psychologically tense world – the kind Hollywood forgot to make after VERTIGO.”

Deal was negotiated by Joe Nicolo for Kindred, with Jonathan Marshall and Paul Speaker representing the producers.

New Films International, a full scale acquisitions, sales and production company with 30 employees and 6 offices worldwide, acquired International Rights from Kindred Media Group and took the film to the Berlin European Film Market where it has been received with overwhelmingly positive feedback.The acquisition was negotiated by NFI Executive Vice President Ron Gell and VP Legal and Business Affairs Craig A. Kessler.
