WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS SETS SAIL WITH “MOANA”

October 22nd, 2014

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”).

“John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said Clements. “Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

Award winning feature film Calloused Hands theatrical release set for November 14th at the Laemmle Theatre in Pasadena

October 22nd, 2014

Calloused Hands, which features an award winning performance from Wire star Andre Royo, will host its theatrical release on Friday, November 14, 2014 at the Laemmle Theatre in Pasadena, followed by screenings in Miami and New York.

The hard-hitting drama, based on the true story of its writer/director Jesse Quinones, tells the narrative of Josh, a 12-year-old mixed race boy growing up in Miami who shows promise as a baseball player. Josh is neglected by his mother, who is abused by her boyfriend Byrd. Josh manages to forge his own path when his estranged grandfather insists he studies for his Bar Mitzvah.

In spite of its micro budget, Calloused Hands premiered at the Miami International Film Festival and went on to screen in over 15 film festivals winning numerous awards. The heart-warming film was later picked up by New York based distributor Kino Lorber.

Elizabeth Sheldon, Vice President of Kino Lorber adds, “Kino Lorber is extremely proud to be releasing first-time director Jesse Quinones’ feature film, Calloused Hands.” Fans of Andre Royo, who will be in attendance at the theatrical release, will find him as compelling as ever in the lead role of this coming-of-age drama that blends Latino, Jewish and sports themes. Calloused Hands also stars Daisy Haggard (Showtime’s Episodes), Hans Howes (There Will Be Blood), and features a breakout performance from 14-year-old teenage actor Luca Oriel.

Andre Royo, who also served as one of the producers on the project mentions, “people should see Calloused Hands because it’s an intense, heart-felt, and honest story about the pursuit of perfection. This is a compelling drama that shows the power of self-reflection and a true examination of purpose in parenting.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, November 11, 2014. For additional information on screenings and ticket prices, please visit http://www.laemmle.com/films/38306. For more information about the film, please visit: www.callousedhandsmovie.com.

THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES TRIBUTES DARREN ARONOFSKY WITH INAUGURAL HUMANE FILMMAKER AWARD

October 22nd, 2014

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) announced it will bestow the inaugural Humane Filmmaker award to director Darren Aronofsky at its “To the Rescue! New York 2014” benefit gala on Friday, November 21 at Cipriani. The award was created to recognize Aronofsky’s leadership and commitment to animal protection and welfare, as he demonstrated using CGI visual effects instead of live animal actors in his recent box office hit, “Noah,” which has garnered $359.2 million worldwide to date.

“I’m honored to accept the Humane Filmmaker award from The Humane Society of the United States,” said Aronofsky. “When I started working on ‘Noah,’ an early question was how to express the vastness and complexity of the animal kingdom on the big screen. It was quickly apparent that working with live animals would be dangerous for them. It was also morally ambiguous considering we were making a film about the first naturalist, Noah, who saved and cared for all the varied species on the planet. Luckily, CGI has evolved to a point where filmmakers can do almost anything and bring any creature to life. I was happy with the results, and I encourage other filmmakers to look at digital solutions before enlisting live animals.”

“We are thrilled to present Darren Aronofsky with the Humane Filmmaker award and applaud his compassionate decision to use CGI in ‘Noah,’” said Michelle Cho, Vice President of the Los Angeles office for The HSUS. “Darren’s ingenious film is a testament that animals can remain a cornerstone in entertainment without their welfare ever being put in jeopardy, and the worldwide box office success of ‘Noah’ proves that audiences find digital animals just as effective in storytelling.”
