I just wanted to share some great news from the past week. I got an email from Betsy Van Ost, part of our distribution team at Janson Media and she said they had just received an order for The Wereth Eleven from Walmart. "This has never happened before this fast. Trust me, never has this happened. Usually it takes weeks -months to get this company to add a DVD title to their site", she said.
So I wanted to share this development and point folks to the Walmart link.
Tomorrow Night in Los Angeles, The Hollywood Post Alliance honors what they refer to as "the best of the best" and Wereth is among them - nominated for an Outstanding Editing for Television Award. Fellow nominees in the category include; Dexter, Downtown Abbey and Rescue Me.
HPA President Leon Silverman stated, “We are proud to be able to honor the incredibly creative work and the artistic achievement of our HPA Awards Nominees. With more submissions than ever before, this year’s nominations represent the best of the best. These awards shine light on the amazing work that post production contributes that is too often overshadowed by the focus on other deserving aspects of the filmmaking process. With the HPA awards we are able to focus on the deep contributions that post production makes to help tell the stories that move audiences. We congratulate our nominees and celebrate the work of the entire post production industry.”
"When it comes to writing, directing and producing history, there's nobody better than Rob Child. He's one of those rare talents that can take a $500,000 budget and make it look like it was $5 million up on the screen. We have been honored to include several of his films in our Rights Portfolio at Janson Media, and we hope to continue working with Rob in the future." Stephen Janson, Janson Media
"Rob Child is the premier historic film maker today. It is very rare to have a man who has command of not only of the production, set, editing and operational resources but also as a Director who has the direct historic knowledge and acumen when the project demands 100% accuracy. I do not have to recommend Rob. His work does it for him."
Tim Daniel - Director of History and Education at History Academy
Rob brings a special sensitivity to the set that is rare. He has an unwavering mission of accuracy when portraying history, and he knows how to be a strong collaborator without losing control of his vision. I was impressed with Rob’s diligence in preproduction and his attention to detail on all matters, large and small. His script included several special effects scenes and many composite scenes. Rob solved problems before they had a chance to show up on the set. It was a privilege to work with him."
