MOUNT KISCO, N.Y., Jan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- All For One Media Corp. (OTCQB – AFOM), an SEC fully reporting Branded Entertainment Company across multiple platforms, is looking forward to making the transition from a development stage corporation creating and acquiring media assets to a content provider launching multiple initiatives in 2018 marketed to our core tween demographic.
AFOM is in the final stage of completing its first full length major motion picture, the Musical Dramedy "Crazy for the Boys." Having completed Principal Photography on July 30th, 2017 in Savannah, Georgia, the film is currently in post-production, the final phase of development, and expects completion over the next fiscal quarter ending March 31st. The movie is being branded as the first installment of several films along the lines of other music oriented tween marketed franchises like Pitch Perfect and High School Musical.
The movie is based on the fictionalized back-story of the five girls - all High School Seniors - who while remarkably different are forced together by the School's Principal, portrayed by Saturday Night Live Alumni Cheri Oteri, to solve the bullying problem that has reached epidemic proportions. Crazy for the Boys is the perfect teen "coming of age" dramedy completely capturing the nuances of High School: teen angst, unrequited love, the mean popular girl, and peer pressure. The movie features fourteen original instantly likable pop songs and infectious choreography. AFOM management believes Crazy for the Boys is destined to become an essential part of pop culture for generations of tweens.
The Company is currently in talks with Major Record labels for the distribution and marketing of the Movie Soundtrack along all Digital and traditional retail platforms.
Crazy for the Boys is also unique in that it is not only a major motion picture but also the first film in history to launch an original major new character driven pop group called Drama Drama. The characters represent the same distinct cross section of popular teen personas they portray in Crazy for the Boys. Each group member is highly stylized to represent a distinct fashion statement. An overriding theme to the group is the celebration of individuality, as each character is markedly different.
Over the course of 2018, AFOM expects to recognize revenues from the Worldwide release of Crazy for the Boys, the accompanying Soundtrack and a touring pop group introduced to the world through the release of the movie.
Commented AFOM's CEO, Brian Lukow, "It is a tremendously exciting period for both management and our shareholders as we are on the cusp of witnessing years of hard work and careful planning coming to fruition" with the release of Crazy for the Boys and the extraordinary girl group it spins off.
AFOM's objective is to capitalize on a wide array of potential revenue streams, including Domestic and Foreign Film Box Office, Music sales, Touring, and Merchandising.
In addition, as previously announced, the Company has acquired all of the original Master Recordings of the former Billboard Number 1 selling Boy Band "Dream Street." The company has released the first fourteen of those recordings across all major digital platforms including Spotify, iTunes Music, Amazon and Pandora.
According to journalist Hayley Lerner, "Dream Street fans were rabid, rivaling Beatlemaniacs in their intensity. There was only one Tween pop Boy Band: Dream Street. Dream Street was a media darling and as such, Dream Street was peerless in its Tween pop stardom."
Concurrently, All For One Media is in pre-production on a Dream Street Documentary which will document the meteoric rise and dramatic fall of the Boy Band.
As part of that process, the Company has commissioned World Media Group to digitize over 1000 hours of never before seen Broadcast Quality Video footage that encompasses the entire history of Dream Street from the original auditions, rehearsals, recording sessions and live performances along with hilarious behind the scenes moments as the group built a rabid fan base taking them from malls to arenas to the New York Supreme Court case that led to the demise of the band. Recounted by the creators, producers, band members and the fans of Dream Street nation each with a unique point of view. The incredible riveting story is set to be completed over the next two quarters and All For One Media plans a commercial release in November, 2018.
Dream Street was originally co-created by AFOM's, CEO and President Brian Lukow who commented, "Watching the original video footage and listening to Dream Street's music has cemented my feeling that there is a captivating story to share that will resonate not only with Dream Street fans but with anyone who shares a fascination with the marriage of music and business."
AFOM will be forming a new Boy Band through an extensive audition process similar to our girl group casting. As noted before, the tectonic demographic shift in technology and distribution has made it easier to reach a worldwide audience than any time in history.
Lukow added, "We are entering a golden age for Content Providers, especially within our core tween demographic with the convergence of Social Media and Traditional Media along with the increased demand for quality content propelled by the emergence of Companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon." From a business perspective, we believe this landscape has created "the Perfect Storm."
