What better way to learn about distribution then from someone who oversaw distribution and marketing at Paramount, one of the most prestigious studios in the world. Barry London headed up marketing campaigns for some of the largest films of the 80′s and 90′s including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Fatal Attraction, and Forrest Gump. Barry sits down with us for a two part series and shares his experiences working at Paramount in various positions including Vice Chairman of Distribution.

Jenna Edwards- Producer

Jenna Edwards began her film career in Minnesota where she was signed on as talent with Easter Hailey. Quickly after being signed Edwards was hired by the agency as a full time employee giving her a head-start on her Hollywood education. After two years of rising through the Minnesota film community Edwards made the move to Los Angeles.

Soon after Edwards moved to Los Angeles she was hired by Agent Jamie Ferrar. It was while Edwards was working for Ferrar that she developed an interest in the casting process, before long she had moved from talent agencies to working in casting with such industry leaders as Sally Steiner (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Boy Meets World), Barbie Block (Jonas, Pepper Dennis) and Allison Jones (Super Bad, The Office). During this time Edwards was also able to gain valuable production experience working on shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Malcolm in the Middle, and working with studios like Disney, MTV, FOX and CBS.

After several years of successfully navigating her career through the Hollywood studio system Edwards made the leap to independent film with her first feature April Showers. After her success with April Showers Edwards formed Mattoid Entertainment with partners Jeremy McGovern and Andrew Robinson where they made, In the Darkness,  the first narrative feature to ever premiere on Hulu.com.  Most recently Edwards made her way back to Nebraska, where she shot April Showers, to team up with some new filmmakers on a comedy film called Trunk’d.

Episode Sixty-One: Digital Distribution and You

Are you currently producing a feature film or have you recently finished production on one? Do you have big plans to sell it to a studio for a big payday or even, *gulp*, planning on sending it to Sundance? Those are both fantastic goals, but what is the likelihood of a big studio exec coming along and writing you a 6 figure check for your film or actually getting your film into Sundance? In the current climate it’s becoming more and more unlikely that you and your film will take either path. Distribution expert Jason Brubaker from Filmmaking Stuff joins us to kick off our month of shows dedicated to the topic of distribution. Jason and guest hosts Jenna Edwards and Aydrea ten Bosch sit down to talk about the highs and lows that come with digitally distributing your content.

Being an actor in Hollywood requires strategic planning as far as marketing and branding yourself and Rachel Lien and Bryan McClure have been busy doing just that. They both moved to Los Angeles from Omaha, Nebraska a little more than a year ago after co-staring in the independent film April Showers and have already landed some notable auditions and the attention of various casting directors and agents. We also welcome back Jenna Edwards fresh off the road from her midwest journey to hear about what’s going on at Mattoid Entertainment.

Rachel Lien- Actor

Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska – Rachel’s desire to perform became apparent before the age of eight.  She soon began acting, singing and dancing on the same stage where such legends as Marlon Brando and Henry Fonda began their careers – the nationally renowned Omaha Community Playhouse. By the age of 12, Lien was garnering praise from theater critics and audiences alike. Roles in The Miracle Worker, Gypsy, and Annie Get Your Gun would earn her the Theater Arts Guild Award for Best Youth Actress, and the prestigious Mary Peckham Award for her stunning portrayal of Helen Keller.

Although aptly described as “a bubbly ingénue who can sing and dance up a storm”, Lien’s dramatic talents began to emerge on screen as well.  Appearing alongside other rapidly rising young actors such as Kelly Blatz and Daryl Sabara in the film “April Showers” (also starring Tom Arnold and Illeana Douglas), Lien’s depiction of Jessica earned high praise from director Andrew Robinson who described her as “One of the best raw talents I’ve come across in a long time.”  Her role in “Ticket Out”, starring Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, Charlie St. Cloud) and Billy Burke (Twilight, New Moon), will further reveal her range of talent as the rifle-toting, orthodontia-challenged drugstore employee, Ellen.

With a year to go at the University of Nebraska – the urge to head to Hollywood was too great.  Armed with a trunk-load of talent, along with a sparkling, fresh and determined spirit, Rachel Lien recently arrived in Hollywood. She is presently working on Young and The Restless in a recurring spot, and is decidedly on track to become one of our next great American actresses.
