Cinema on Demand release for PGS in the US!

I’m delighted to announce that Gathr Films has come on board to release my film PGS – Intuition is your Personal Guidance System in the US.

Whilst in Los Angeles last week, Jennifer and I met with the President of Gathr, Jake Craven. He saw the film, loved it, and now they’ll be releasing it theatrically, on demand, throughout the United States and its territories.

I’ve chosen to release the film via Cinema on Demand because I believe it’s the best way to get the film out to its audience – and to give the investors the best possibility of making some money out of it!

The beauty of Cinema on Demand is that the rights aren’t cross-collateralised. In other words, profits made from one type of release aren’t “crossed” against losses from another. Having now made 16 feature films as a producer and director, I’ve seen how the Hollywood “creative accounting” system works – and believe me, it doesn’t work in favour of producers or investors!

Going Cinema on Demand, we get to release the film theatrically to an audience that wants to see it – that demands to see it!and we get to keep the Video on Demand rights for our 444 release at 4:44pm on 4/4 – being April 4th 2018. We also keep all other rights, such as various TV rights.

We are in the early stages of locking in Cinema on Demand for Australia and New Zealand, and possibly UK and some other territories as well. I’ll let you know when those deals are done.

We are also bringing on board a team of publicists out of New York, and a couple of social media mavens – one out of Prague, the other out of India – to begin rolling out a global social media campaign, to be coordinated by our Impact Producer, Kerrin McNeil.

As for when the film will begin its Cinema on Demand run in the US – well, we’ll be figuring that out in the next little while, but most probably some time in January 2018.

Jennifer and I are thrilled to be working with the team at Gathr. They are good people, they love the film and see a big audience for it in the US, and we’re excited at what the future holds for this groundbreaking film on intuition.

PGS website now live!

Our PGS website is now online and live!

Here it is:
http://www.pgsintuition.com/

If you view the website on a desktop or laptop, you get a really cool parallax effect as you scroll down. Try it!  (It doesn’t work on “touch” devices though, like tablets or iPhones.)

The website at this stage is informational only – and basic information at that – but as we get closer to the release next year at 4:44pm on the 4th of the 4th, the website will become the platform for release. It will also have news of preview screenings, etc, and further information about the making of the film.

And soon there will also be a trailer on the website.

Natacha my brilliant website designer once again has done a stellar job. Thanks also to Aldous Massie, who designed the key art and worked with Natacha to design the look of the site, consistent with the look of the film.

Today Jennifer and I leave for the US for four weeks, for a series of Work-in-Progress screenings of the film – the first being at a major International Holistic Medicine Summit at Kansas City next week, hosted by Dr. Norman Shealy, considered the “father of holistic medicine” in the west.

The Summit will also feature, amongst other luminaries, Caroline Myss. Both Caroline and Norm feature prominently in my film.

I’ll be posting regularly on this blog, and on Facebook – I’m pretty confident in the film now. I think it’s in good shape. Even so, these next round of screenings are going to be very telling…

Announcement: PGS the movie to screen at International Holistic Medicine Summit in US ~

Dr. Norm Shealy, a renown neurosurgeon and a legend in holist medicine – the man is said to have brought holistic medicine to the west – has invited me to screen my movie at a major International Holistic Medicine Summit mid next month, in Kansas City.

The film is still not complete, so it will be a work-in-progress screening, however I see it as a fabulous opportunity to have the film seen by some of the top medical intuitives from around the world.

Speakers at the three day summit include a Who’s Who of intuitive medicine, including Caroline Myss. Both Caroline and Norm Shealy feature prominently in my film.

We are working now to get the film in shape – I have Olivier Fontenay, the best colourist in the country and one of the best in the world – doing a temp grade for me. And Wayne and Libby Pashley at the incomparable Big Bang Sound will do a temp sound mix.

Editor Rishi Shukla has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get everything in order for this work to happen smoothly. I thank them all.

After the screening Jennifer and I will be meeting up with Lee Carroll, Dr. Judith Orloff, Dr. Francesca McCartney, and James Van Praagh to show them the film. They are all key interviewees in the film, and we hope to gather their support for the release, next year at 4:44pm on the 4/4.

So, more traveling coming up. It will be daunting to have the first screening of the film in front of such intuition luminaries – but I feel the film will hold up…

I’ll let you know!
