Director Michael Masucci Recognized By Global Entertainment Holdings For His Outstanding Work On American Sunset

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

GBHL announced today that the Company is recognizing Film Director, Michael Masucci, for his outstanding job performance as Director of “American Sunset”, an exhilarating film starring the late Corey Haim and Frank Molina.

(I-Newswire) Los Angles, CA, November 17, 2010 – Global Entertainment Holdings (OTCBB: GBHL) announced today that the Company is recognizing Film Director, Michael Masucci, for his outstanding job performance as Director of “American Sunset”, an exhilarating film starring the late Corey Haim and Frank Molina.

“I am very happy about how the film is being received;” stated Michael Masucci, Director. He continued; “from fantastic responses at the film festivals at: AFM (American Film Market), Silver Wave Film Festival, and Cannes International Film Festival to the exit reviews at the film’s limited theatrical release in Canada and the USA, I am elated.” And now it is available to the public on DVD and Blu-ray. Since Corey passed away there has been an outcry from his fans inquiring how they can obtain the movie; “it’s fulfilling to see that they are at last getting their chance.”

“We see it as ‘small town boy does well’ kind of story” stated Global Universal’s Jackie Giroux; speaking of Masucci. We are very proud of his work and wanted to give him the public recognition he deserves.
For Masucci the road to the director’s chair began shortly after earning his BA from The University of Scranton, in Scranton Pennsylvania. He enrolled into the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute. He would appear as an actor in a series of commercials, Off Broadway plays, and low budget feature films where he began working behind the camera as well. “I learned about the art of filmmaking by working and watching other filmmakers while on the set, it was a tremendous learning curve. I got to the point where I had worked in every facet of the filmmaking process both in front and behind the camera and the next natural step for me, was to direct.”

American Sunset is a thriller about a husband who awakens to find his wife missing followed by a call from an elusive character with a mysterious voice asking, “Wanna play a game?” The game is simple: a clue, a riddle, and a life hanging in the balance. The film unravels a mysterious conspiracy with numerous spellbinding maneuvers revolving around a kidnapping ploy to rob a devoted husband of his true love, while playing a game that prolongs her safety by correctly responding to riddles, which if to replied incorrectly, will surely result in fatal consequences.

The Movie, American Sunset, produced by Global Universal Pictures, in cooperation with Global Entertainment Holdings, is NOW AVAILABLE in DVD and Blu-Ray formats on the film’s Official website:
www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com, as well as the Company’s Tribure to Corey Haim website: www.CoreyHaimRemembered.com.

Global Entertainment Holdings recently announced that it has retained Level 4 Stonehenge Development Partners to implement its new technology, an advanced streaming technology for video distribution, called AppFlik™, that will offer American Sunset for download on Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iTunes App Store. The Company expects that American Sunset will be one of the first of many films that it will bring to the world using this state-of-the-art technology.

“I’m truly grateful to all the executives over at Global Universal and I just hope that American Sunset continues to be successful and people buy the DVD, and support the movie. We had a crew of roughly 60 people on American Sunset, and the film is a testament to the talent and hard work of the crew, which are all deserving of paramount recognition. I anticipate that the film will continue to do very well for us all.” Stated Masucci.
Michael Masucci has several Film and TV projects in development, slated for 2011.

American Sunset DVD also includes in the Bonus features, – The Behind the scenes making of American Sunset, the theatrical trailer, and a musical tribute to the cast and crew. You can find it at www.globaluniversal.com.

Bernard Robichaud – A rebel with a cause

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

bernie-robichaud-tpb-sm1You know what it’s like when you run into an athlete in public and in street clothes they look different “” that headhunting linebacker for the TiCats looks like an accountant and is not at all like you imagine him to be. The same thing goes for a lot of celebrities, politicians, and actors. But this is definitely not the case should you have a chance encounter with ‘Cyrus’ of the Trailer Park Boys. He looks the part almost all the time “” minus of course, the leather, guns, girls on each arm and making life hell for the TPB gang.

At 6’1″, 205 pounds, Bernie Robichaud is intimidating enough in casual attire, and creates space by just being there. He carries himself with a carriage of confidence and coolness that comes with the knowledge and experience of handling a given situation. It’s easy to see how he was cast as the character Cyrus just by conversing with him.

He can articulate with the best of them but to emphasize a point he reverts to his street roots and is apt to conclude a discussion on complicated regulations by saying “Bullshit! That’s crap and you know it!”

He listens intently to what he’s being asked, seems to be measuring the question’s worth before answering and stares directly with an intensity that is almost a glare. You get the feeling that if he wasn’t working a lot as Cyrus on TPB and life had turned just a bit he could have ended up exactly the same, only as the real deal.

So the secret to success is to develop a character based on your life, pitch it to a hit TV show and you’re in, right? Wrong! Robichaud’s road to obtaining recognition is so unorthodox it’s hard to put any sort of label on. The first indication of this is the fact he took up acting at the age of 25 after spending a transient, troubled adolescence to say the least.

Robichaud was born in Boston and grew up in Halifax where he attended J.L. Ilsley High in Halifax. Life at home was turbulent with an alcoholic father, who at one time had been a top-ranked hockey player and expected more from his son “” so much so that he spent the last couple of school years living with friends.

Like his father, Robichaud was a gifted athlete and excelled in hockey, basketball and golf.

“I learned at a young age that nothing would be just given to me so I had to work for everything and go get it,” said Robichaud. “It was tough on me, but like the times you rolled with the punches, picked up street savvy and made do.”

Tthis period of his life resulted in the highly-acclaimed play Kitchen Sports, which essentially was memoirs by Robichaud.

At this point in his life, outside of his passion for sports, there was no real role model or source of motivation that was pointing him in any particular direction.

“I would have to say that a couple of athletes caught my attention for similar reasons. They both were very successful in their respective sports against all odds. One was Nate Archibald, (who had an) NBA star-studded career despite being considered too short and Phil Esposito, hockey scoring wizard despite his awkward style and lousy skating as deemed by hockey experts.”

He decided to forgo university to look for a job and while working as a male model in Toronto he was told by an agent that he is missing his calling and should be an actor.

“I told him ‘sure, me and 10 millions others,'” laughs Robichaud. “But it played on my mind and I thought ‘why not?'”

So it was off to Dalhousie to study theater and he was accepted into first year by Patrick Young, who felt Robichaud had raw talent but not to count on acting as a profession.

“A month into university, my voice teacher Dorothy Ward, who had taught voice at Stratford, took me aside and gave me the direction I really needed,” a grateful Robichaud recalls. “She said I was wasting my time in university and should have been placed in second year at the very least.”

Taking her advice to heart, Robichaud took private voice lessons and subsequently dropped out before the second term. Ward arranged for a job for him at the Neptune Theatre’s second stage where he was mentored by award winning director Tom Kerr.

“This man taught me everything, every little detail, and I soaked it in,” said Robichaud.

The following year Robichaud got a real break when CBC producer Sudsy Clarke asked him to play a major role which was in fact two major roles.

“I was the voice of Robert/Becky in a radio drama Becky’s Name. It was obvious my voice training paid off as I was able to cover a wide range of different voices, accents and dialects,” said Robichaud. “In fact, I impressed Mr. Clarke and award-winning playwright Kent Stenson so much with my voice versatility that they wrote ACTRA lobbying on my behalf for union affiliation. The end result was I was working as a professional a year and a half before the rest of my class graduated.” Prior to rocking the scene with Cyrus, Robichaud has had a very active career, which now spans over 25 years. He has shared screen time with Hollywood Icons like James Caan and Kathy Bates. His movies are numerous with many lead and co-lead roles included. His Trailer Park Boys adventures include The TPB 2008 special, the new TPB feature in theatres this fall playing the recurring role of Cyrus.

The last two years has brought film work for Robichaud in New Brunswick on two separate feature films through Global Universal Inc. First with Blue Seduction starring Billy Zane and Estella Warren where he played the role of Stanley Miles, Zane’s close personal friend. He has just wrapped American Sunset starring Corey Haim, Frank Molina and Angela Cullins. The feature film is a thriller extraordinaire and was shot in Fredericton and Moncton.

“Bernie has that dangerous and evil aura surrounding him that is essential to making him invaluable to my productions,” said producer Jackie Giroux.

“It doesn’t get any better than this, I live in Moncton, and shooting here and in Fredericton was great, bring em on,” states Robichaud.

Robichaud is encouraged by the inroads being made into attracting more production to New Brunswick.

“With forward-thinking producers like Giroux and veterans like Steve Mayhew seeing the great locations available and the expertise behind the camera and in technical capacity being available locally we are on an upswing,” he says. “But we lack the number of actors needed, if the powers to be would lift the restrictions and perhaps form a Maritime actor’s pool which would allow actors to work in each other’s provinces, align this with the tech expertise already in place and producers would be more willing to come here and film … Build a quality studio sound stage in Moncton or Fredericton and they will come! Infrastructure of this nature would benefit any production that comes to the populated major centers.”

While Robichaud awaits yet another Global Universal Inc. production later this summer he has his eyes fixed squarely on overseeing the ongoing screenwriting adaptation of his play Kitchen Sports. Tentative plans call for shooting to begin the fall of 2010.

“This is like a baby to me,” says Robichaud. “It’s my story and many others whose kitchen was the birthplace of myth, legend, disaster, just about anything you can think of. Here in the east, the kitchen symbolizes family harmony, discord, music, feast or famine, dreams built up or knocked down.

“Many a game has been replayed from many a vantage point with varying opinions depending on the pecking order or who happens to be in the room,” he says. “But is this thing we call sports but a metaphor for life? You will find out next fall!

“Now f*ck off, I got work to do!”

N.B. actress gets her break

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

angelac“Isn’t it ironic?” laments Alanis Morissette, but living proof is soon to be displayed, for all to see, by Angela Cullins, as the lead actress in the Global Universal Inc. feature film “American Sunset”. Playing alongside the reenergized Corey Haim and New York’s dynamo Frank Molina in this suspense-filled thriller, written and produced by Jackie Giroux, Cullins is ecstatic. “My dream is coming true, hell it’s every actor’s dream, to have a lead role in a major production,” proclaims Cullins. “I have to almost pinch myself because not only has it happened but to have it happen here in New Brunswick is surreal!”

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

American Sunset shot in Moncton, Fredericton, Parlee Beach

american-sunset-1

A second major movie to be filmed in Moncton in as many years is wrapping up production downtown.

The film, American Sunset, is scheduled for release this summer. The popular teen movie Growing Op, released last year, was also filmed in Moncton.

The film is produced by Global Universal Inc. out of Hollywood, but most of the 40-person cast and crew is from New Brunswick.

“It’s been really great for me,” said Nicky Destres, production manager and Moncton native. “It’s been giving me the opportunity to prove myself in the New Brunswick market.”

This is Destres’ first time as a production manager for a feature film.

“New Brunswick film is underrated, but I’m hoping this film will change things,” Destres said.

The film was originally set for the … READ MORE

Film | Producer says tax rules need to change if N.B. wants to star in more films

Corey Haim may be the star of American Sunset, but he said New Brunswick had the biggest role to play in making the film one of his best

american-sunset-2

“The location has made it such a better movie,” said the star of such hits as The Lost Boys during a news conference at the Delta Fredericton Hotel on Friday. “You can actually see the river. There’s no yellow clouds of smog (here). It all feels so real.”

“I think New Brunswick is the first character in the film,” said co-star Frank Molina, who’s been shooting scenes with Haim and the rest of the cast at Kings Landing Historical Settlement, El Burrito Loco and other Fredericton hot spots this week.

“The whole area, to me, worked (for) the trials and tribulations of our (characters’) demons. In scenes, I’m looking around and I forget that I’m working, because I’m just so overwhelmed by the beauty. It wouldn’t have worked anywhere else.”

But Jackie Giroux, the film’s writer and producer, said the … READ MORE
