nonTransferable Transfers the Love in this Modern Internet Age

The rom-com nonTransferable held their red carpet launch event on Monday, February 13th at the kitschy Now Boarding in heart of West Hollywood. This film was almost entirely shot in Turkey, and it would take Iranian-American attorney Nadia Davari to bridge the gap between east and west as the legal counsel of this international film. Davari reps Lightening Entertainment, a noted production company and distributor of the film.

Interestingly enough, this film had an exclusive 4K Ultra HD Release of the Original Independent Film on UltraFlix before it hits theaters.  All of this is in conjunction with NanoTech Entertainment, who provides the innovative 4K experience to consumers and has a strategic partnership with SWIG MEDIA and Lightning Entertainment. UltraFlix has secured digital distribution rights to nonTransferable motion picture.  This partnership is helping to usher in the Company’s expansion of premiere film presentations and original programs on the UltraFlix network.

James Walker, President of Lightning Entertainment, and Forest Robin, Head of Digital Distribution lead the team working with the filmmakers spearheading this distribution deal.  Walker noted “The entertainment industry is looking increasingly at new models using the digital platforms to release and bring attention to films in ways other than through costly P&A.  Lightning Entertainment is positioned to leverage our relationship with SWIG Media’s next generation digital distribution capabilities and content partners to bring wonderful new movies like nonTransferable to the market in new and unique ways.”

As for the film, nonTransferable follows the adventures of Amy Tyler (Ashley Clements), a bleeding heart romantic who books a surprise vacation of a lifetime for her boyfriend Josh Merit (Christopher Nicholas Smith). When he abruptly breaks up with her on their anniversary, Amy is stuck with the non-transferable tickets in his name. Dealt with a difficult and time sensitive situation, Amy’s clever friends suggest that if she can’t change the tickets…why not change the guy? She comes across another Josh Merit (Brendan Bradley, who also wrote and directed the film) and the sparks fly.

This film also stars Amin Joseph, Shanna Malcolm, Katie Wee, Matthew Scott Montgomery, Sara Fletcher, Cem Baza, Monika Jolly, Daniel Vincent Gordh, Julia Cho, Joey Richter, Jessica Andres and Cigdem Önat.

In addition to the wonderful rom com story, this film is so intriguing on many levels. Produced by an American production, with a strong indie cast, but the the project was almost entirely filmed in Turkey. And during the geopolitical coup no less! Additionally, this film was also partially financed via Turkey’s tourism board and appropriately enough, the trailer screened on Turkish Airlines channel.

All in all it was a great event, with an open bar (yet I was too sick to enjoy much of anything) with an airline theme…how apropos for a film about travel and the food was catered by Prime Cutts. So let’s fly high with nonTransferable!

New Exorcist Movie ‘Holy Terror’ Trailer Debuts

The riveting first official teaser trailer for the new supernatural horror film HOLY TERROR was just released. This film is in post production via Cineridge Entertainment from the award-winning team who previously brought us SAMURAI COP 2: DEADLY VENGEANCE.

Holy Terror poster

Written and directed by Rich Mallery (SOCIOPATHIA) and executive-produced by Gregory Hatanaka (who helmed SAMURAI COP 2 from a script co-written by Mallery), HOLY TERROR stars MEATBALLS’ Kristine DeBell, Bruce Lee’s GAME OF DEATH’s Mel Novak, Lisa London (H.O.T.S., PRIVATE RESORT), Kelly Reiter (The Z Virus), Jesse Hlubik (MAY, ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE), Nicole Olson, Scott Butler (WIENER DOG INTERNATIONALS), and HPC’s Vida G (THE MINDY PROJECT, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE).

Believing the strange disturbances in their home are their deceased son reaching out from the other side, Molly [Reiter] and Tom [Hlubik] ask a medium [London] to make contact. But instead of their child, the three accidentally invite a vengeful demon to cross over. After the demon violently possesses Molly’s younger sister [Olson], the couple enlists the help of a disgraced priest [Butler] and his mentor Sister Catherine [DeBell] to attempt a dangerous exorcism.

“There has been a resurgence of exorcism/possession-type movies, so it’s a little challenging to give audiences something they haven’t seen before. But we have a few tricks up our sleeve that are going to make HOLY TERROR stand apart from the crowd. Plus, we’re going for a real late-’70s/early-’80s feel. Films like THE CHANGELING, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR and of course the original EXORCIST are huge influences on this project,” said Mallery.

“I’m really excited to be partnering with Gregory Hatanaka again; this is the fourth film we’ve worked on together,” Mallery continues. “It’s a little strange this time around, since usually he’s directing and I’m the writer/AD, and this time I’m directing and he’s the DP, but we’re totally in sync when it comes to the vision, so we’re like a well-oiled machine. We’ve brought back a lot of the cast of SAMURAI COP 2—Jesse Hlubik, Lisa London, Mel Novak, Kristine DeBell and Nicole Olson—and although this is a completely different type of film, it’s great to have a lot of familiar faces who are used to the way Gregory and I work. We’re both slightly insane, so it’s amazing to be surrounded by people who support our vision.”

“As Rich and I are both rabid fans of 70s AIP and New World horror pics,” Hatanaka adds, “it was only a matter of time before we teamed up to do a film in that tradition. HOLY TERROR works on deep psychological levels, and has an otherworldly, TWILIGHT ZONE-ish kind of feel.”

Holy Terror will be premiering this April on Amazon Prime.

Casablanca Moroccan Style White Party By AMS Exclusive Luxury Events

 Here’s looking at you kid…I had a great time at the Casablanca Moroccan Style Launch Party of AMS Exclusive Luxury Events hosted by Alin Queen and Mark Sevier at a private estate. Sponsors for the event were Restoration 911, Kookoo Liqueur, and Patron Tequila. Alin Queen is also a noted chef and she prepared a very tasty and authentic Moroccan style dinner with 15 appetizers, 4 main courses, bread made from scratch, and amazing desserts! The hummus was the best I’ve ever had hands down…well maybe it’s a tie between Chef Alin and my mom. And Mark was a great host as well. 


There were also belly dancers, hookahs and live entertainment. All in all, it was a great event with amazing hosts and a wide variety of entertainment options and hookah of course!

Don’t miss the premier of Animal Kingdom on TNT Tuesday, June 14th

Tuesday, June 14 is the premier of TNT’s Animal Kingdom, a bold new drama starring Emmy® and Tony® winner Ellen Barkin (Sea of Love, This Boy’s Life, Ocean’s Thirteen), Scott Speedman (The Strangers, The Vow), Shawn Hatosy (Southland, Reckless), Ben Robson (Vikings, Dracula: The Dark Prince), Jake Weary (Pretty Little Liars, It Follows), Finn Cole (Peaky Blinders, An Inspector Calls), Daniella Alonso (Revolution) and Molly Gordon (Love the Coopers, Ithaca).

The series centers on 17-year-old Joshua “J” Cody (Cole), who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. Heading up the family is J’s estranged grandmother, Janine “Smurf” Cody (Barkin), whom he’s been shielded from for years. She is orbited by Baz (Speedman), her relatively level-headed right-hand man whom she adopted when he was a teenager; Smurf’s eldest son, the quietly menacing, mentally disturbed Pope (Hatosy), who has just gotten out of prison; her tough, hyperactive, recreational drug-using middle son, Craig (Robson); and the troubled and suspicious Deran (Weary), the “baby” of the family. Also prominent are Nicky Belmont (Gordon), J’s steady girlfriend, and Catherine Ortiz (Alonso), Baz’s de facto wife and the mother of their 4-year-old daughter, Lena.

On Wednesday, June 8th the show’s creators threw a screening bash that was equal to the party level the characters on the show are notorious for hosting.

The screening kicked off with a red carpet photo opportunity and was immediately followed up with a celebration at the The Rose Room in Venice Beach. Finger food, beer and wine were offered as Animal Kingdom played on the televisions throughout the restaurant as well as in a large screening room with plenty of seats for everyone to enjoy. The crowd was filled with actors, producers, friends and show contributors and sponsors.

After the screening, the party moved to a beautiful outdoor venue behind the restaurant. As you entered the party, you walked threw a room set up like a jewelry store that had been robbed. Glass cases were shattered and all but a few jewelry items were missing. Leather gloves were thrown askew throughout the room, a few biker helmets were left behind, and a true sense that a heist had just taken place was evident.

On the exterior, where the party took place, the DJ was backed up by a drummer, making for a rich musical experience. The bars packed with people who seemed more like long time friends as opposed to co-workers. Photo booths, photographers, mini movie makers and other fun and playful entertainment was sprinkled throughout the party. The center piece of the event was a life sized skate park with boarders and bikers wowing the crowd with their incredible stunts.

The production level and talent on this show is unequaled, and it is sure to be an instant hit. Cast and crew have put 110% into this one, and the comradery among the co-workers is a so apparent it makes the family aspect on the show completely believable. This is a show that will be on everyone’s watch list this summer.

The Cookie Kahuna is Back and Baking Up a Storm


The Cookie Kahuna and his new bride Carol are an inspiration to romantics everywhere. The Hollywood Press Corps was invited into their home to talk about love, life, and the resurgence of the perfect cookie.

Wally Amos and His Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies
Wally Amos and His Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

You may remember Wally Amos from the 70’s when he became the “Famous Amos” cookie mogul. He was a warm, young, caring entrepreneur who conquered the world with his amazing little chocolate chip cookies. After taking a break from the world of baking, Wally Amos has decided to jump back into the kitchen with both feet and his original crunchy cookie recipe.

Amos prides himself with his all natural ingredients, including his high quality chocolate chips from Guittard Chocolates, and his vanilla bean extract. He proudly tells us that the very first ingredient in his chocolate chip cookies is “chocolate,” a statement very few cookie companies can make.

As we sat in his kitchen and got a first-hand lesson in “how to roll the perfect cookie”, we were entertained with the story of how the two love birds met and married. Carol recounted every detail down to a loving message left on her voicemail by Wally. He jokingly denied it ever happened so she grabbed her phone and played the message on speaker for all of us to hear. Wally’s eyes lit up and a giant smile grew on his face as he admitted he did, in fact, say those wonderful things.

They met in late January and were married by the end of February. When asked why they moved so quickly, their response was, “Why wait? We’re not getting any younger!” Wally will be 80 soon and Carol turned 70 this year. But when the two look into each other’s eyes, eternal youth seems from them.

As the cookies came out of the oven, Carol enticed us to enjoy at least 18, since she had already had that many before we arrived. She continued to eat them, and continued to up our target number as the meeting continued. Batch after batch came out of the oven and we each continued to toss dozens of the Cookie Kahuna’s masterpiece into our mouths.

A special batch of cookies made with love

We learned that Amos had been invited to go on “Shark Tank” to pitch his new cookie business to the team. He was going to pass on the idea but Carol convinced him that it was part of his destiny, so he decided to move forward.

After eating at least two or three dozen cookies a piece, and enjoying numerous stories of wedding bliss from our newlywed couple, it was time to go. The warmth of the Amos house didn’t come from the cookie oven, but from the cookie Kahuna and his new wife themselves. It was a true pleasure to meet them both and we can’t wait for the new brand of cookies to make their way to our grocery store shelves soon!
