IDA PRODUCTION Launches with Promotional Event for Genre Bending Feature Film They Call me Jack










New York, New York (PRWEB) September 13, 2011

Every so often, a film is released that calls society’s mores into question. Enter Jamie Neumann as JACK in THEY CALL ME JACK, the story of a hermaphrodite writer struggling with the angst of a series of unrequited loves. A feature length independent film in development directed by first time director Stefan Blomquist, the story examines the myth and reality of duality in gender and sexuality. Somewhat of a fictional anthropology in timbre, the piece is set in New York and San Francesco in the mid nineties amidst the backdrop of opulent high society and drug-induced artistic expressionism with the introduction of Allan Ginsberg played by Laurence K Cantor. Ginsberg who is best recognized for his work in beat poetry figures greatly in the piece as an ever present lover to JACK in her pubescent years even as she courses onward in her adulthood with short-lived, complicated relations. Other locations include Thailand and Bangkok, which have served not only to establish the visual beauty of journey in self-exploration but also to blur the lines between what is ordinary and unusual.

An event launch is scheduled September 12th from 6:30 to 10:00 at La Galleria in New York City to secure investment for this picture. Please direct all press inquiries and RSVPs to Kojenwa Moitt at kojenwa(at)zebra(dot)nu

IDA Production, or Interdisciplinary Arts Production is a New York based production company founded in 2009 by Swedish photographer Stefan Blomquist and co-partners Lauryn Garza and Kojenwa Moitt of Zebra PR.

I love fonts.

Back in college, I would horde them on my computer like there was no tomorrow. So, when Helvetica, The Movie had a screening at the Landmark Embarcadero Cinemas, I was all on it.

I’d never actually had a preference for or against Helvetica prior to watching the movie, and after viewing it, while I came away with a lot more perspective and background on the font, I had no further leanings one way of the other…as the designers had mentioned, it’s like air, it’s like off-white paint – it’s just there.

short film
by Roslan Tangah (aka Rasso)

Most people these days use the internet as a good way to get the word out about some product or other. If the product is new to the market or is perhaps revamped, advertising it in this way is the fastest way to draw attention to it. There are companies who can produce some rather wonderful short films to market the goods and, if it is done in such a way that it stirs some interest, the selling company gets exactly what they have paid for. Take a look at ‘Production services’ or ‘commercial production’ in a good search engine to see which companies offer this service.

This kind of company is really a mini film maker since all the values that are in full length movies apply here too. There is pre-production and post production which takes up an inordinate amount of time if the location is to be somewhere out-of-state or even country. Post production also takes time since the right music may have to be composed or some research done on music already in existence.

Most people do not consider the music in their short ads but it is this that could make the product unforgettable. Much as the phrase ‘where is the beef?’ was coined to advertise burgers some time ago music really touches people in ways that they remember the product that was advertised when it was played. Therefore, a lot of attention has to be paid to this detail.

They can also produce training videos for larger companies who want their staff to follow the same criteria whenever they have to deal with customers. Although most people are friendly and informative when dealing with the public, they should have the same routine if complaints are to be cut to a minimum. By producing film where difficult customers are seen to be creating a nuisance; the team can advise on how to handle this situation which should meet up with the requirements of the company. This overall corporate approach to the paying customer is what they are after and it can also extend to other departments too. Indeed, staff and personnel often respond much better to situations when they have seen it demonstrated on film and the movie can be shown at regular intervals to keep the standards up.

Not all media companies can produce this kind of product of course, so it is imperative that the buyer does some research beforehand. Comparing the films that they have already produced is one way and, naturally, price could be a major factor. This will depend on the actors used to produce the piece since the more famous an artist is, the higher the rate will be. However, some corporate films use the personnel in situ to show that this is real people doing real work.

Taking a look to see which companies advertise online is a clever and fast way to find a company which can produce just the right film for just the right price.

The "Battle" sequel (top) was the 5th and, thank goodness, the last of the Ape sequels. I love the first Ape movie and the second was alright. But the last three just get stupid.
"The most suspenseful showdown ever filmed as two civilizations battle for the right to inherit what’s left of the earth!", was the tagline that 20th Century Fox used to promote the film. Pathetic, because this battle of all battles couldn’t have involved more that 60 to 70 individuals all together.
The area seen here is where the war council had their gatherings. It is at the (now) famous Ape Wall which is just down stream from the rock pool in the Malibu Creek Park.

Is there any one place on the map where your senses can be sufficiently tingled to mentally transport you to any city or country on the globe? Ask this question of Hollywood producers and they may well provide Quebec, Canada’s largest province, as an appropriate answer.

In recent years, Quebec, with its wealth of cultural and architectural heritage, classical European style and diverse landscape, has adopted the guise of many cities worldwide under the creative eyes of those in the film industry. Quebec alludes to cities of the past, present and future, evident in the range of film genres employing its scenic qualities.

In 2007 the auteur-driven I’m Not There presented the Quebec city of Brigham as 1960s Dylan territory. Montreal played Minsk in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in 2008. Director Steven Spielberg chose Montreal to double as Marseilles in his film Catch Me if You Can and perhaps, most impressively, Quebec donned the mask of the Earth’s core in Journey to the Centre of the Earth.

India, Beirut, Scotland and New York are amongst Quebec’s other personas. The aforementioned attributes, together with Quebec’s technologically advanced Visual Effects industry and the ease of access to Canada from Hollywood makes the area a popular choice for film producers who would otherwise be required to travel to the ‘real’ Europe and beyond for their productions.

Fans of the cult novel On the Road by Jack Kerouac are doubtless aware that Jose Rivera has adapted the story for the big screen under the direction of Walter Salles and is due for release this year. Jack Kerouac himself, real name Jean-Louis Kerouac, was born to a French Canadian family and it therefore seems fitting that Quebec’s city of Hull should provide the setting for the film of his novel. In this instance, Quebec pretends to be 1940s working class Denver.

In addition to Hollywood’s ardour for the province, Quebec boasts its own film industry with its own Jutra Awards ceremony. The majority of these productions are filmed in the Quebecois French language and often prove to be more successful than Hollywood blockbusters with the provincial natives who are keen to preserve their mother tongue.

The film Incindies from Quebecois French director Denis Villeneuve, where Montreal is in fact acting simply as Montreal, is nominated in the Best Foreign Film category at this year’s Oscars ceremony. If you have been inspired by any of your favourite film settings to visit foreign shores then perhaps Quebec is a good starting point, a temporary backdrop to your own life.

Feature Film About Homeless Man To Donate Half of Film’s Profits to Homeless










Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 07, 2011

The film is called “The Guitar Player.” The story is about a homeless street performer who gets a second chance in life but struggles with his painful past. It seems only fitting that a film about someone who is homeless in a bad economy, will be funded by the public. That is the intention of the filmmaker Michael Stein. He has created an elaborate fund raising campaign to finance the film and intends on giving half his profits to homeless causes. In this day and age where film companies are taking what they can get, it seems like a grand gesture.

The film company, The Guitar Player Inc., has scheduled the film to be shot January 9th in Los Angeles. Due to the content and the film’s cause many contributions have been made but the production still lacks liquid funds, so the filmmakers decided to raise funds publicly.

The Guitar Player is based on a fictional character named Robert Shiller (a.k.a “Robert Shiller The Killer”) a seventeen-year-old champion high school wrestler in a small town in Northern California. One week before the state championship, Robert accidentally killed his best friend and team mate, during practice. The loss of his friend and the social stigma in a small town was more than he could bear, so he ran away from home, grabbing only what he could fit in his wresting bag and his best friend’s guitar even though he did not know how to play. Our story begins twenty years later with Robert living on the streets. The screenplay was written by the director Michael Stein.

Stein has a knack for making lower budget films with a larger budget look and feel. His last film, “Love Hollywood Style” starred Faye Dunaway, Andy Dick, Coolio and Stephen Tobolowsky and has become a cult comedy classic. Stein’s first role came when he was cast by his friend Paul Thomas Anderson to play the lead role of Dirk Diggler in the original short film “The Dirk Diggler Story”, that later became the feature film “Boogie Nights” which Michael Appears in as well.

“Getting funding has always been a struggle,” Stein says. “The past several years in Hollywood have seen a major change. They are not handing out movie deals like hotcakes the way they use to in the 90s.”

It’s been four years since Stein made his last film. The problem was self funding a film in a bad economy along with the obligations of supporting his family. He knew about crowd funding websites like kickstarter.com but did not feel that any of his scripts would go well with a crowd funding concept. He then came up with an idea that he felt would be with the right vehicle. A film that would be funded 100% by the public about someone who is homeless and the earnings of the film benefiting homeless causes.

The film’s production is contingent upon the funds being raised. The film’s kickstarter campaign also has a high concept. One of the packages, a thirty five hundred dollar pledge allows businesses to promote their products at each of the premieres, which will be in several major cities, including L.A. and New York. Another package, a ten thousand dollar pledge includes “An Event for a Day” where one thousand tarps will be donated to a local homeless shelter and a screening in a movie theater in the city of your choice, all being promoted in honor of the pledge contributor. There are many other elaborate incentives built around the premieres and promotion of the film. Tricks of the trade Stein learned working with Peter Guber and John Peters on movie promotions when he was a twenty years old nightclub promoter.

The minimal funding goal for the film was set at one hundred and fifty thousand. A typical low amount is always set for projects on kickstarter due to their “all of nothing” policy. Stein and the Line Producer Aimee Flaherty hope to break the kickstarter’s funding record for a film, which is approximately half a million. Once funding is in place, Stein hopes to sell the film to one of the larger film companies and donate fifty percent of his profits to the homeless.

The fund raising campaign is being held for fifty days and expires on October 21st. Tarp drives will be held in 14 cities around the country in order to bring more awareness to the project. The tarp drives consist of one thousand tarps will be handed out at homeless shelters for people that are living on the streets.
