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.

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”.

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 be clear and concise, communicate effectively “” your call is the production’s command to do something and their work/safety is in your hands.

Corey Haim | Actor joins Frank Molina in new movie
One of the biggest movie stars from the 1980s is filming a motion picture in the capital region this week.
Corey Haim, who starred in Hollywood blockbusters such as Licence To Drive, The Lost Boys, and Stephen King’s Silver Bullet, filmed a scene at the popular Mexican eatery El Burrito Loco several days ago and will visit several other locations as work continues on the film.
The Toronto-born actor fell out of the spotlight in the 1990s and struggled briefly with addiction and financial troubles.
But Haim returned to the industry again in recent years by appearing in a reality television show The Two Coreys alongside good friend and fellow teen heartthrob Corey Feldman.
He also has a role in the Hollywood action movie Crank: High Voltage.
Global Universal Pictures, Inc. is making the film, which is tentatively titled American Sunset, with Haim, co-star Frank Molina and director Michael Masucci.
The film is being … READ MORE
