NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkNewsAudio – The Wonderfilm Media Corporation (WNDR.V) (WDRFF), a producer of high-quality feature films and episodic television that offer international appeal, announces the broadcast of its audio interview with NetworkNewsAudio (NNA), a NetworkNewsWire (NNW) solution.
The interview can be heard at http://nnw.fm/wt1Lh
Wonderfilm Media CEO Kirk Shaw joins NNW’s Stuart Smith in a discussion on the company’s business model in producing quality theatrical releases and entertainment content for an expanding array of streaming services.
Wonderfilm is backed by four Hollywood producers who have produced over $1 billion in hit movie revenues, and led by Shaw, a veteran producer of 240 movies airing on television and the big screen, including the Oscar-winning “The Hurt Locker,” starring Jeremy Renner.
Award-winning producers Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates joined the company earlier this year, adding to Wonderfilm talent that produced two of the most successful Hollywood films of 2017 and 2018: “Get Out” ($255 million USD gross revenue) and “BlacKkKlansman” ($100 million USD gross revenue).
Shaw briefly highlights Wonderfilm’s most recent releases, including “The Fanatic,” starring John Travolta, and “Tammy’s Always Dying,” starring Felicity Huffman, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. The company’s lineup also includes “Primal,” an action-thriller starring Nicolas Cage, which opened in theaters Nov. 9, 2019.
The interview also spotlights Wonderfilm’s operational achievements, such as the launch of Wonderfilm Global, an international film and television sales and distribution joint venture expected to generate significant incremental revenue.
“That was a big accomplishment for the company and for me,” Shaw states. “I already have tremendous relationships with many foreign buyers, so being able to sell to them directly is a big stepping-stone.”
In discussing the broader entertainment industry and Wonderfilm’s focus for the remainder of the year and into 2020, Shaw notes the explosion of streaming services coming onto the market, with Disney, Apple, Microsoft and Google giving Netflix its first real competition for subscribers. Demand for quality content is high, which Shaw says Wonderfilm and other third-party content suppliers are anxious to fill.
“Disney, for the first time in its history, has to start looking at third-party content from suppliers like us,” he says. “And it’s our content that’s required to fill the time and attract the subscribers. It’s an exciting time to be in the entertaining business and in the content creation business.”
