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!

Attorney Nadia Davari’s Sense of Style

Noted entertainment attorney Nadia Davari has to walk a fine line in fashion. It’s a given that she has to look professional, but since she works in Entertainment Law, her style has to be more hip and on trend, than say, a tax attorney.  Here’s her essay on the role wardrobe plays in her thriving career as an entertainment attorney.

There are many reasons for wanting to look good and dress nice. Growing up, I used to think that being worried about my appearance and how I look was being superficial. However, I have come to think differently as I started law school and then started practicing as an attorney.

How we dress affects how we feel and how others perceive us. While “You can’t judge a book by its cover” may be true, who was is that said “dress for success” or dress for the part”? There is little doubt that how we dress has an affect on the way we feel. We communicate with more that the words that we speak. We also communicate with the way we dress. So, I have come to appreciate that how I dress not only affects me personally and how I feel but it also affects the audience and the people whom I meet in the way they perceive me.

As far as dressing for myself, when I “dress for the part” and feel good, it helps me in the visualization of what needs to get done, in turn, affecting my ability to accomplish tasks and persuade others. I know that dressing well and looking good has a direct affect in my effectiveness in accomplishing my work.

In dressing for myself to make me feel good, I have also come to realize that I must dress appropriately, meaning I must have respect for the place, situation and the audience. I want to make a good first impression. When I think of a lawyer, looking professional and dressing for the office are the first things that come to mind.Generally, when dressing as an attorney, I want to exude confidence or tell my client that you can trust me. As such, choices may include pant suits, skirt suits and all around uptight goes hand in hand with dressing for the job. While this is true for almost all of the areas of law practice, entertainment attorneys are a bit unique in this respect.

In my opinion, dressing as an entertainment attorney is looking like a professional with a twist. As an entertainment attorney, I try to relate to my clients and to make them feel comfortable. This may lead to sartorial choices that are a little different than the typical attorney.  It may be a little more edgy or casual than what one may think of how a typical attorney dresses.  More info at http://www.nadiadavari.com/
