Los Angeles, CA – (WORLD STOCK WIRE) – April 12, 2010 — Global Entertainment Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded entertainment Company (OTCBB: GBHL), and Global Universal Pictures (Global Pictures), GBHL’s Canadian production affiliate, are pleased to announce completion of The Night, their fourth feature-length film produced in roughly sixteen months.
“Wow! Was it ever cold!” Stated Jackie Giroux, President of Global Universal, as well as the writer and producer of The Night. “And, this being a ghost story, our cast took advantage of those cold, dark and dreary 3 AM screen calls to play their roles with such realism that they’re well worth the ticket price.”
The Night, filmed entirely on location in Grand Falls, Canada (in the province of New Brunswick), continued the blueprint of success that has become a bankable trademark of GBHL and the Global Universal family of companies. “We have successfully employed our financial strategy to complete 4 films in just under a year and a half, while most other independent film companies have struggled for years to produce just one film”, stated Eric A. Leffler, Business Development Officer of Global Universal Film Group, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary and the sales & marketing arm of GBHL. “Our financial strategy mitigates our investors’ risk while providing a lucrative potential upside and is, evidently, very attractive. This holds true for our film productions in Canada as well as in the U.S.”
Ms. Giroux stated that, “SCI-FI television star Lex Goderoff, co-starring with Lalesha Railsback, Jimmy McKinley, Angele Bourgeous and Ian Hamrick as the ghost “Rodney”, combined to make an intense, first-class thriller.” Shari Hamrick directed, with Trevor Richardson and Gary Rasmussen, GBHL CEO, as Executive Producers. “Not only will the audience appreciate the production value of The Night, but they will believe in and sympathize with the characters. Hopefully, it will scare the pants off ‘em.”
Gary Rasmussen commented, “Four feature-length films in sixteen months, shows that our financing model, designed to mitigate risk for the investor, while producing quality motion pictures, is certainly working and is attracting the interest of global distribution partners.”
Mr. Rasmussen further stated, “It is well worth a quick review of the success of these four film ventures. Blue Seduction, starring Billy Zane and Estella Warren and distributed by Anchor Bay Entertainment and global entertainment leader Starz Media. American Sunset, starring the late Corey Haim, will premiere this May at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Plaster Rock, which is already receiving commercial interest and has a limited theatrical release in Canada scheduled for early May, and now, The Night.”
An example of the interest that such success has attracted, is the partnership entered into by President and CEO of Global Renaissance Entertainment Group, Inc. (GREG), Arthur Wylie, a highly successful business investor in film, real estate, and financial service companies.
GBHL, Mr. Wylie and Omar Tyree, the New York Times bestselling author, whose works have been read by millions, structured an exclusive deal to adapt his popular novels into film. Leslie, a supernatural thriller set in New Orleans, is the first of Tyree’s novels being adapted to film by the GBHL/ GREG joint venture and is in development for the last quarter of 2010.
Mr. Rasmussen stated, “The confidence shown by successful business professionals, global film distributors and well known actors and directors is not only gratifying for all the efforts made to produce such quality films, but is extremely satisfying in proving the soundness of our financing and production strategies.”
