Saint James Films titles get a boost from distributor TomCat Films, LLC’s deal with Mark Burnett’s YouToo.tv

Great piece on our distributor, TomCat Films getting into social media television– posted in THR last week— (TomCat reps all of Saint James Films titles including Jurassic Shark, Lizzie Borden’s Revenge, Captain Battle: Legacy War, and more!)

—————————

Arizona sales company’s series of tongue-in-cheek theatrical trailers will air on interactive online and cable TV service.

TomCat Films LLC, an Arizona-based production and international sales company, has signed a licensing deal with YouToo TV to carry a series of its tongue-in-cheek theatrical movie trailers.

YouToo TV is an interactive television network that makes content available both online on cable systems, including Verizon Fios, Comcast and Time Warner Cable in 177 of the top 200 U.S. TV markets, according to the company. It estimates it has an audience of 15 million viewers.

The TomCat series of trailers calledTrailerific will promote their B-movies, including such titles as Thunderstorm: Return of Thor, Jurassic Shark and Lizzie Borden’s Revenge.

The first episode includes 5 trailers with a superhero theme where the audience can comment via video and text free of charge.

“These trailers are fun, campy and enjoyable at the same time, and that’s something you don’t necessarily see everywhere else,” says Chris Wyatt, CEO of YouToo TV. “We want to really expand the interactive experience and get viewers involved.”

YouToo TV works in association with Survivor producer Mark Burnett’s company VIMBY, (Video in My Backyard). Viewers can create an account online or using the YouToo TV app for mobile and tablets where they can upload video, pictures and text  to appear on their television service.

Since YouToo TV’s launch in 2010, over 500,000 viewers have appeared on their television services, according to the company. They say they put 500 people on the network each day, showing 15-second “Fame Spot” videos and 30-second “peoplemercials” that can instantly be seen on their television service. YouToo TV edits the videos and chooses which to post.

TomCat Films produces low-budget films and licenses them worldwide. Their recent titles includeRobin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood and Disaster Wars.

 

TomCat Films LLC CEO Ted Chalmers said his company has “a very playful approach to marketing its features. YouToo’s Trailerific will celebrate our marketing style and provide exposure and promotion for our films amidst millions of users/viewers.”

Trailerific begins airing on YouToo TV on Friday.

BLOOD RITES

 

Writer/Director: Dorothy Booraem

Writer/Producer: Chad Haufschild

Producer: Andrew Johnson

Cast:  Kris Yanike, Eric Moyer, Mark Dews, Shaun Vetick, Christina Marie Leonard, Christopher Michael O’Neill, Jeanne Kern, Allison Scott and Robert-Kingston Green

Heavily influenced by Giallo, a genre of Italian horror popularized in the late 60’s and 70’s by masters like Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci, Blood Rites is a macabre mystery of murder, drug use and the occult.
 BLOOD WILL FLOW…HELL IS COMING. 

It was supposed to be an easy deal for Jason and Nikki: buy the drugs, cut them at an abandoned warehouse, then sell them on the street and rake in the cash. When the drug deal goes bad and Jason disappears, Nikki is trapped on an upper floor of the warehouse with a vicious ex-military enforcer, a gunshot victim, a violent addict and his three hostages. 

Leaving the building is not an option. 

All the exits have been blocked. And somewhere in the darkness is something with a taste for blood and a love of pain. The bad guys are being stalked by something worse. For a great demon demands to be born from the fiery depths of hell and its faithful servant has planned a bizarre blood rite that will leave no vein untapped. Blood will flow. Hell is coming.

 

Saint James Films, Acquires International Rights to Grindhouse Gem, ‘Blood Rites’

 

Blood Rites is a well-shot low-budget crime film with superior production values. The smart camera work (by Chad Haufschild), lighting and sound design imbue the film with a professional quality that raises it above similar fare. Director Dorothy Booraem (who co-wrote with Haufschild) knows the language of film and has a keen eye for action and composition. – Bradley Harding, PLANET FURY
