Monday, August 22nd, 2011

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Global Entertainment Holdings (OTCBB: GBHL) announced today that Global Universal Film Group’s presentation of “AMERICAN SUNSET”, starring Corey Haim and Frank Molina, will be playing at The Louisville International Film Festival from October 6th through October 9th, 2011.

“We are so proud of the late Corey Haim’s performance in this thriller,” stated Jackie Giroux, the writer and one of the producers of the film. “In the Behind the Scenes for AMERICAN SUNSET, Corey stated that he hoped he would be recognized by his peers for his performance in AMERICAN SUNSET, so we wish to thank the entire committee, including Conrad Bachmann and Brett Bachmann, for playing this film at The Louisville International Film Festival this year.”

“Veteran Actress and Entertainer Lily Tomlin will be placed in the ‘Walk of Fame’ at the Galt House on October 6th to open the Film Festival, so we feel honored to be a part of this prestigious film festival,” commented Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Entertainment Holdings. “We look forward to meeting Kentucky film makers at the Louisville Film Festival, as co-star Frank Molina and Director Michael Masucci will be in attendance to answer any questions about AMERICAN SUNSET or Corey Haim.” Gary Rasmussen and Eric Leffler are the Executive Producers of the Corey Haim film AMERICAN SUNSET.

Dan Sherkow, COO of Global Universal Entertainment continued: “Members of our production team, plus Corey Haim’s co-star, Frank Molina, will be in attendance at The Louisville International Film Festival, which provides grants to help fund educational efforts focused on training film makers of tomorrow in Metro Louisville and the commonwealth of Kentucky.”

AMERICAN SUNSET was directed by Michael Masucci in New Brunswick, Canada, and also co-stars Bernie Robichaud of TRAILER PARK BOYS fame. Corey Haim and Frank Molina play two unlikely characters who would have never met except through the unfortunate kidnapping of Haim’s wife, played by Angela Cullins. Haim has 24 hours to find his wife, with the assistance of Molina’s character. Corey Haim was just beginning to promote the film, when he contracted pneumonia and suddenly died. Global Universal had so many fans begging to see the film that it decided to offer a DVD of the film directly to Haim’s fans through a special Global website, as no distribution plans have yet been made out of respect for Haim’s untimely death.

“Mr. Pink” A Hot Film For Global Universal

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Los Angeles, CA – May 19, 2011 – Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB/BB: GBHL) announced today that its US Production subsidiary, Global Universal Entertainment, Inc. has optioned the motion picture and television rights to the recently published book, “Mr. Pink”.

“Mr. Pink is one hot property”, stated Daniel Sherkow, COO of Global Universal Entertainment. “Mr. Pink”, is the true story of four well off college students who pulled off one of the largest heists in the art world. The valuable art books are worth over twelve million dollars!”

Former Paramount Executive Sherkow continued, “the ‘Mr. Pink’ project is an exciting and compelling true story, which is featured on Google under The Transy Book Heist, and more info is at: http://www.whoismrpink.com/. It is timely, teen driven, yet bears a strong moral lesson.”

Veteran writer and film producer Jackie Giroux has adapted the screenplay from Blake Allen and Allen Brothers Publishing. Giroux will produce the picture, along with Blake Allen, Sydney Allen, and Mike Markwell, as Executive Producers. “I read the book in one sitting” exclaimed Giroux. “It is very similar to Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. If these four very different personalities had not met in college, the ingenious heist idea would have never come to fruition. They fed upon each other’s talents. This will be the fascination for a great Hollywood cast, and a hit film!”

Global Universal expects to shoot a portion of the picture in Kentucky and has begun evaluating locations within that State. In addition, Global Universal is also in conversations with distributors as it explores various distribution options.

Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Universal, stated that, “the ‘Mr. Pink’ project has the potential to add significant value to the company due to its potential ‘box office appeal’ and our ability to produce the picture at a comparatively reasonable cost.” Mr. Rasmussen continued, “as an additional revenue stream, Global Universal will share in the proceeds of the book in addition to its participation in the motion picture”.

“American Sunset” Released on iTunes as an “AppFlik”

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Los Angeles, CA – (February 24, 2011) – Global Entertainment Holdings (OTCBB: GBHL) announced today that its sales and distribution subsidiary, Global Universal Film Group, has released its feature movie “American Sunset” staring  the late Corey Haim  as an AppFlik on Apple’s (AAPL) iTunes App store. AppFlik” is the new embedded application technology for movie distribution from Stonehenge Level4 Development Partners. The application is a FREE download and differs from current streaming resources in that it functions as an embedded movie to prevent piracy. The movie is loaded into an application with social networking capabilities that interact with viewers worldwide. Security against theft is greatly enhanced, there are no streaming or buffering issues, and the delivery is a hi-resolution viewing experience.

According to Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Entertainment Holdings, “The digital distribution of movies is highly efficient, cost effective and profitable. Delivery is fantastic – our films will be available to consumers any place, at any time, with no packaging, no shipping or logistics to worry about. Plus, the security features of AppFlik™ solve the challenges of getting safe electronic distribution of our movies.”  Mr. Rasmussen continued “it took a little longer than expected to get it on iTunes, but when you download the free app you will see that it was worth the wait! Now that we got through the process for the first film, others should be much faster.” Level 4 Distribution is a digital distribution company engaging new technologies using apps as its new media platform. New media distribution is the next way to monetize content through smart phones, tablets, Google TV, and other new media platforms that use media-rich apps. This ‘fourth-level’ of distribution can be used for both older content that is looking for a new way to bring revenues as well as new content that desires to enhance its market reach.

The AppFlik™ is being marketed initially through iTunes since the very successful iPhone and iPad is currently the viewing screen of choice. However, with the introduction of other platforms (i.e. Google TV, Apple’s iTv, DroidX, etc.), the sky is the limit for this form of digital distribution.

The user’s cost of the app will depend on the amount of layers in the app itself. Starting at 4.99 and up, the apps can be quickly monetized to the content owner since the ROI is higher than other distribution methods. Cost to the content owner is a onetime reasonable cost whether it is a line item on a budget or a onetime fee to build it.

Stonehenge Level4 Development Partners create Apps that help film makers build awareness and broaden their distribution channels. The Apps include the film, as well as rich media features such as digital books, behind the scenes clips, trailers, news, and social media capabilities for mobile devices such as the iPad, iPhone, iTouch, as well as Android phones like the EVO 4g, G3 and Droid.

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.

Global Entertainment Holdings Implements New Embedded Application Technology For Movie Distribution

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Los Angeles, CA – November 10, 2010 – Global Entertainment Holdings (OTCBB: GBHL) announced today that its sales and distribution subsidiary, Global Universal Film Group, is implementing the latest video distribution technology, called AppFlik™. The application differs from current streaming resources in that it functions as a securely embedded movie to prevent piracy. The movie is loaded into an application with free social networking capabilities that interact with viewers worldwide. Security against theft is greatly enhanced, there are no streaming or buffering issues, and the delivery is a hi-resolution viewing experience.

According to Gary Rasmussen, CEO of Global Entertainment Holdings, “The digital distribution of movies is highly efficient, cost effective and profitable. This new delivery technology is fantastic – our films will now be available to our customers any place, at any time, with no packaging, no shipping or logistics to worry about. Plus, the security features of AppFlik™ provide safe electronic distribution of our movies.”

Global Entertainment has contracted Level4 Stonehenge Development Partners to embed and market its movies for these downloadable applications. Our first AppFlik™ movie is “American Sunset”, featuring the late Corey Haim (www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com), which is expected to be available for sale on Apple’s iTunes app store before year’s end. The AppFlik™ is being featured initially on iTunes since the very successful iPhone and iPad are currently the viewing screens of choice. However, with the introduction of other platforms (i.e. Google TV, Apple’s iTv, Sprint’s EVO 4g and DroidX), the sky is the limit for this form of digital distribution.

About Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (OTC: GBHL) is a publicly-held, entertainment company. The Company’s goal is to build a worldwide entertainment organization with a multitude of domestic and foreign production affiliates. GBHL, operating through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Global Universal Film Group, Inc., Global Universal Entertainment, Inc., and its partially-owned Canadian subsidiary Global Universal Pictures, is in the process of developing and producing a slate of motion pictures in Canada and the U.S., employing recognizable-named talent, for worldwide release. GBHL is focused on the financing and marketing of these feature-length films. GBHL, through another wholly owned subsidiary, You’ve Got The Part, Inc.

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

New Brunswick film festival marks its 10th anniversary with full roster of feature films, docs, shorts and more…

The 10th annual Silver Wave Film Festival brings a flurry of film and festivities to Fredericton this week.

“With our 10th festival anniversary, new sponsors, new screening programs and new awards, we are entering yet another chapter of the festival,” says Tony Merzetti, executive director of New Brunswick Film Co-op. “The festival is about the love of cinema and we know that our audience will find something to love at the Silver Wave this year.”

Films will showcase a variety of genres, including Iranian, Canadian and International shorts, French, student, youth and documentaries. This year’s festival, running Thursday to Sunday, boasts a lineup of more than 80 films.

———–
‘Plaster Rock: Terror on the Tobique’

With an all New Brunswick cast and crew, Plaster Rock: Terror on the Tobique was filmed in the rural community of Riley Brook. The thriller-horror begins with a test of athletics that turns into a quest for survival. Director Jackie Giroux caught wind of a murder story in the area in the 1930s and Plaster Rock became her next project. While four former female and male athletes are set to participate in a wilderness cross-country skiing contest, set in a remote location only accessible by boat, they quickly realize there’s more than $250,000 on the line. It’s their lives. The quest to survive includes a solid cast of New Brunswick actors, including: Jessica Holt, Christine Johnson, Eric Leffler, Michael Mascucci, Frank Molina, Jason Nicholson, Lalesha Railsback, Kelsey Wilson and Peter Loughran.

Global Universal’s “Plaster Rock” Officially Selected To Feature At The Silver Wave Film Festival

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

October 28, 2010 Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc. a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), and its affiliate, Global Universal Pictures (“Global Pictures”), was honored at a New Brunswick, Canada, entertainment luncheon, where it was announced that Plaster Rock — Terror on the Tobique, had been officially selected, from among numerous quality films, as a feature presentation film at this year’s Annual Silver Wave Film Festival. More information on the film, and the Plaster Rock trailer can be viewed at: www.plasterrockmovie.com.

This will be the Silver Wave ’s 10th Annual Film Festival, which selects feature films, documentaries and short films produced around the World, but highlights film makers in the New Brunswick area. CBC television is one of the sponsors of the film festival, and offers a lucrative distribution deal to selected winners.

The Fredericton News Channel in New Brunswick, Canada, covered the exclusive luncheon, which named its official selections from among more than 80 films in competition at this year’s event, to be held November 4th in Fredericton.  Global Universal Picture’s film Director, Jackie Giroux, was featured in the Fredericton News Channel’s coverage of the luncheon event (http://frederictonnewschannel.com/).

Plaster Rock was named an official selection based on its favorable reviews and the success of its limited theatrical release at The Grand Cinema Three in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, before it went to the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival in May, 2010.

Jackie Giroux, the film’s director, stated, “Last year we were honored to have our film, American Sunset, selected to officially open the Silver Wave Film Festival, and this year we thrilled with being honored once again having Plaster Rock featured as an official selection. This validates the quality of feature films that the Global Universal team can produce. Plaster Rock is our third feature film produced in less than two years, with our fourth film, “The Night”, currently in post-production, and already developing a following stemming from the film’s cast, including a Hollywood newcomer and child star, Ian Hamrick, as well as Lalesha Railsback, daughter of well known actor Steve Railsback.”

Global Universal is pleased to play such a distinguished role in the Silver Wave Film Festival, and looks forward to continue its production of quality feature films for the world to enjoy.  Last year’s opening film, American Sunset, starring the late Corey Haim, is now available on DVD only at www.AmericanSunsetTheMovie.com

Plaster Rock is an action packed thriller-horror film with humorous and egotistical characters. The story depicts eight young men and women, celebrities in their own mind, who are paid to compete in a cross-country skiing contest in the wilderness of northern New Brunswick, Canada. However, once left in the wilderness, they soon discover there is a hidden agenda behind this strange, but profitable  outing. Each participant is led to believe they must be the superior, lone survivor in order to collect the lavish cash reward. The plot takes a spell binding twist when the participants begin to realize that they must collaborate together in order outsmart their mysterious host.

About Silver Wave Film Festival: The Silver Wave Film Festival is jam packed with exciting film events and video programming with diversity and depth. The Festival is the brainchild of the board and staff at the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative.
