Thursday, June 18th, 2009

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTC: GBHL), announced that its Canadian affiliate, Global Universal Pictures (GUP), has completed filming of the action thriller American Sunset starring Corey Haim (Lost Boys).

GBHL CEO Gary Rasmussen stated that “post production work has begun and Kaleidoscope Entertainment, the Canadian distributor for American Sunset, will begin working with the film’s sales agent, Global Universal Film Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of GBHL, on a release schedule that will occur later this year.”

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

Sean Patterson has at least 15 years of film experience behind him to prepare for his first gig as first assistant director for the recently completed Global Universal Inc. production “American Sunset”. The Saint John native played a major role in the overall process of guiding the shoot, aligning himself with Director Michael Masucci’s vision and perception of every scene. He then ensures the set synchronicity reflects what the director requires, even demands.

To do the job you must be a master of all trades (if not in practice, at least in theory) to obtain the maximum from any and all skills required on set. You have to know what asking others to do is possible, practical, effective and safe.

American Sunset, shot in the Moncton and Fredericton area, is a suspense-filled turnstile of emotional demons engulfing one man’s obsession to be in the real moment amidst his wife’s abduction by a man he believes is a crazed kidnapper. Corey Haim plays “Tom”, an ex-soldier home from Iraq who is on the edge as the police are unable to help find his wife “Samantha” (Angela Cullins). As Giroux says “a sinister voice calls up and gives clues that must be followed. It’s completely action-filled; you have no idea who… READ MORE
