Revolution by Rob Stewart (second feature documentary following the success of Sharkwater)

Eco Documentary feature film by Rob Stewart (Sharkwater) - 82 minutes - Canada -

Sharkwater was about saving sharks from shark finning; Revolution is about saving humans, saving our planet and the need for a revolution to change our world.

The true-life adventure of Rob Stewart, this follow-up to his acclaimed SHARKWATER (36 festival wins) documentary continues his remarkable journey; one that will take him through 15 countries over four years, and where he'll discover that it's not only sharks that are in grave danger -- it's humanity itself.

Hi Bruno

I hope you are well. It is a sad time for Paris but be brave and know that the word is praying for Paris.

I just wanted to thank you again for your help with my film "Foxed". We had a great run on the festival circuit and are now making the FOXED feature film.

Vous aimez les affiches de cinéma, vous allez adorre celles de Saul Bass : Une grande expo à Montpellier


Une belle expo au centre d’art La Fenêtre qui, depuis 2011, fait à Montpellier la promotion des arts appliqués et visuels, présentera à partir du 8 janvier 2016 : It’s a Bass Bass World Quatre expositions et une dizaine d’événements (conférences, projections, performances) pour célébrer le 20e anniversaire de la mort de Saul Bass (1920-1996), le tout constituant une proposition inédite en France à ne manquer sous aucun pretexte.



Un hommage à une oeuvre majeure dans l’histoire du design graphique, une écriture unique et foisonnante et finalement un socle incontournable pour l’ensemble de la culture visuelle contemporaine. En partenariat, notamment, avec les cinémas d’art & essai Diagonal, l’Université de Montpellier, Radio Nova, la direction académique de l’Hérault, avec les soutiens de Jennifer Bass et Pat Kirkham (historienne du design et biographe de Saul Bass), et en coproduction avec La Panacée, centre de culture contemporaine, de la ville de Montpellier.

L’exposition rétrospective de La Fenêtre présentera des contenus exceptionnels, collections d’affiches et éditions originales, entretiens et films rares...

Si certaines de ses créations sont désormais entrées dans le «domaine public visuel», le nom de Saul Bass est paradoxalement peu connu du grand public. Seuls quelques cinéphiles l’ont identifié comme l’inventeur du générique animé dans les années 1950 et 1960 et comme le créateur d’une soixantaine de «crédits» fameux pour Otto Preminger, Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder ou Martin Scorsese. Moins nombreux encore sont ceux qui connaissent la remarquable carrière de Bass comme consultant visuel (pour West Side Story, Psychose ou Spartacus), comme affichiste ou comme réalisateur d’une demi-douzaine de courts-métrages et d’un ambitieux long-métrage de science-fiction tourné en Angleterre, Phase IV (1974). Et très peu soupçonnent que cette production consacrée au cinéma ne représente qu’une très petite partie de l’activité d’un des graphistes commerciaux les plus influents du XXe siècle... «It’s a Bass Bass World», ou la rencontre avec une vie entière dédiée à la création visuelle, entre design graphique et cinéma.

Joli challenge marketing pour un demes clients deux films à sortir le même jour

OUR FILMS

SOLO (Adventure/Thriller)

After a business woman reluctantly joins forces with her inventor ex-husband who has built the world’s first commercial flying car, rival companies and military factions want the technology at any cost.

DUET (Romantic Dramedy)

Upon reconnecting with her ex-husband’s rockstar client and every woman’s heart throb, Cass finds herself in a romantic triangle with two modern-day knights who want to protect her and the flying car company she’s helped build.
The production ($8.5 M US) plan for SOLO and DUET calls for filming in Alberta and/or British Columbia, Canada. The provincial governments are offering significant tax benefits to new film projects, in addition to a significant discount thanks to a strong US dollar.

OUR PROPOSITION

Implementing the Hitchcock Knot

Both films are independently marketable and have pleasing endings that will tempt the viewer into seeing the other film.
Seeing both of the stand-alone films, in either order, gives the viewer additional story-lines and mysteries that are only recognized and solved if both films are seen.
Which movie a viewer sees first dramatically skews the viewer’s experience with the characters and the stories.
The films share select budgets including select scenes, characters, music, marketing and distribution, dramatically dropping overall costs.

LET'S MEET DURING AFM TO DISCUSS YOUR INVOLVEMENT

Meet Terri Hitchcock and her team from The Other Hitchcock Entertainment during AFM November (4 - 11) at the Loews. Contact us to take a meeting and discuss our pitchdeck and unique proposition. Reach out on our Cell:  +1 403-970-9203  or by e-mail terri@tohentertainment.com
