Samera Entertainment explores the tragic depths of this insightful social drama from Bounty Films and Dream Team Directors, Bayou Bennett and Daniel Lir.

"I think now filmmaking has an even more important role than ever in the uplifting of our society and that is what Tombstone Pillow is all about." -”

— Daniel Lir

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 24, 2020 / — Husband and wife filmmaking team, Bayou Bennett and Daniel Lir joined together to cultivate their creative outlook. With the establishment of Dream Team Directors, their intentions to inspire through cinema were set in stone. This has led to collaborations with the likes of Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo, British superstars – Coldplay, and viral sensation Lindsey Stirling. Their work has received a heaping of praise from critics, plus numerous accolades, including two Telly Awards and 27 prizes at film festivals around the world.

Tombstone Pillow is the latest film in their repertoire, and it is positioned as one of their strongest projects yet. The film premiered as an Oscar qualifying entry at the LA Shorts festival, and went on to win Best Drama at the ICP Shorts Series in New York, New York.

In Tombstone Pillow, A 9-year-old girl gives the Philippines wealthiest widow a tour of a graveyard thousands of poor people call home, where she discovers what real riches are.

The film was inspired after a trip to the Philippines, where Bayou and Daniel discovered 6,000 families living amongst the tombs of a Manila cemetery. The conditions were horrible and unendurable, the Dream Team Directors had to bring this to the attention of the masses. So they made a call to one of their past collaborators, Mumbai filmmaker Fraser Scott, to craft an amazing story that would educate the public on the squalor these people were in, and help make better lives for them.

"There are thousands of families living in cemeteries, sleeping on tombs, human beings deserve better, and filmmaking is the most powerful voice we know which has allowed us to help create change and awareness to this problem." – Bayou Bennett

The Tombstone Pillow production was not without its share of challenges. Despite being unable to be on location in order to take care of her three year old child, Bayou wasn’t going to let that get in the way of co-directing the film. So through experimentation with the tools of modern technology, Bayou lent her directing expertise to the production through Facebook Live, providing her input from over 7,000 miles away. The end product is a testament to the unwavering dedication of its cast and crew. And its accumulation of awards and raves is proof of its stunning achievement.

"I think now filmmaking has an even more important role than ever in the uplifting of our society and that is what Tombstone Pillow is all about." –
Daniel Lir

The goal with Tombstone Pillow now is to present the film to the mayor of Manila in an effort to relocate these families to an environment more suitable for human habitation. The Dream Team Directors screened the film in its shooting location of Manila on February 23, 2019, where it was a finalist at the Asian Cinematography Awards. It went on to open at the Dolby Theater during the NYC International Film Festival on March 23, 2019. This was a tremendous fate for an important film meant to trigger great social change.

Tombstone Pillow has garnered 21 nominations and numerous wins throughout its festival tour. Among those, there were awards for:

Best Inspirational Film-Venice Film Awards, Hollywood Film Awards, NY Movie Awards

Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay, Global Short Film Awards

Best Social Theme Film, CIFA

Finalist Morehouse College of Human Rights Film Festival

Special Jury Recognition, Global Impact Film Festival

Best Drama, ICP Screening Series.

Semi Finalist for Best Short Film, ARFF Amsterdam

Prague International Monthly Film Festival, Best Inspirational Film

Top Indie Film Awards Best Cinematography, Best Message, Best Original Idea, Best Short,

Films for Peace, Best Story

Sharry Flaherty of Samera Entertainment acquisitioned this short subject documentary for Bounty Films, which is distributing Tombstone Pillow for a wide audience, so as many people as possible can be aware of this heartbreaking way of life.

"We're proud to have Bounty Films distribute Tombstone Pillow, a first-of-its-kind short film, with a story told in a very real environment."
– Leslie Morris (Acquisitions Manager Bounty Films)

Filmmaker Daniel Jesse Revives a Ghost Town to Share the Wealth With "The Price of Silver"

I knew that no other filmmaker had ever done a story about Silver City. I also knew I was the one to do what had never been done before.”

— Daniel Jesse

OGDEN, UTAH, USA, November 24, 2020 / — After an adventure into the heart of a ghost town, a new documentary from filmmaker Daniel Jesse will bring one city’s memory back to life. Steeped in western mining history, the documentary pays homage to Silver City, Utah. It's a reverent nod to the 1,500 people, like the legendary Jesse Knight, who made up the thread work of its past. Once a silver mining boomtown founded in 1869 just outside of Salt Lake City, the film gives the first in-depth historical look at what eventually gave way to progress elsewhere and abandonment in 1940.

Jesse said of the project, "Thirty-three years ago, my father researched our family genealogy to uncover the story of my great-grandparents who lived in Silver City. Shortly after completing his research, he passed away from cancer. Three years ago, I sat at my brother's kitchen table, discussing ghost towns, and my father’s research came up. I knew that no other filmmaker had ever done a story about Silver City. I also knew I was the one to do what had never been done before."

Now available on DVD, the documentary's production entailed 3D artists, photo restoration experts, historians, out-of-print rare books, and Jesse's beloved family genealogy. Thanks to all this, it informs viewers of the discovery of new silver veins in the 1890s and the mining magnate Jesse Knight who chose Silver City to build a large ore sampling mill and a second railroad into town. This investment resulted in another period of prosperity, and the city reached its peak population. With a third life now on the horizon, the area is quickly becoming a popular spot for modern adventurers to visit.

How Sixteen Year Old Pop Artist Dorian Duta Used His Quarantine To Create Music That Inspires

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, November 24, 2020 / — While most teenagers were struggling to find things to keep them busy this year, since the announcement of the COVID-19 global pandemic, sixteen year old rising star Dorian Duta was hard at work in the studio working on his second album.

The song is about wanting to let someone go, but at the same time, wanting them to stay. Exploring the complexity of mixed emotions created by wanting the person who hurt you, but becoming too blinded by love to acknowledge it.

Video: “Fall out of Love”

Each song on the album was written, produced and performed by Dorian and inspired by his personal experiences and late night thoughts. The dynamic and awe-inspiring lyrics paint a vivid picture of young love and all of the complexities that come along with it. While Dorian may be young in age, he is an old soul with a romantic mind that will make audiences of all ages swoon.

Quarantine turned out to be the perfect landscape to inspire the songs behind this feature album, providing an environment that coincides with the overall mood of Late Nights, Vol 2.

“In my new songs I’m trying to be more direct. I look at my old music as learning
process and stepping stone to eventually create something I’m really happy with. This new album is definitely a big step forward for me. My fans are going to see the improvement and maturity of these newer songs and I honestly can’t wait for everyone to hear them.” – Dorian Duta

Sprockefeller Pictures on a Roll as They Announce the Two Directors for their next films SEA OF GREED & THE DEVIL’S MEN

We love true stories particularly with larger-than-life personalities”

— Ryan Johnson, Producer Sprockefeller Pictures

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 24, 2020 / — Sprockefeller Pictures rolling out major Feature Film hits like HONEST THIEF and their new film FATMAN,

Film Director, Dito Montiel (The Clapper, Man Down,) has agreed to write and direct Sprockefeller Pictures’ feature film SEA OF GREED based on the novel Sea of Greed: The True Story of the Investigation and Prosecution of Manuel Antonio Noriega written by J. Douglas McCullough and Les Pendleton and based on the life of gentlemen smuggler, Steven Kalish, and follows his ascent from a small time drug dealer, to becoming the largest marijuana dealer in U.S. history through his opportunistic friendship with Manuel Noriega, that would lead to the downfall of them both.

Sprockefeller’s Martin Sprock and Ryan R. Johnson are producing and plan to film SEA OF GREED in early spring 2021.

Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard of Storyboard Media will co-produce and sell which re-teams Sprockefeller and Storyboard whose previous collaborations were ‘Arkansas’ starring Vince Vaughn, Liam Hemsworth and John Malkovich for LionsGate, and George Gallo’s ‘The Comeback Trail’ starring Robert DeNiro, Tommy Lee Jones and Morgan Freeman which is releasing in first part of 2021 by Cloudburst Entertainment.

Sprockefeller Pictures has been topping the box office the last several weeks with HONEST THIEF starring Liam Neeson released by Open Road, and with the dark Christmas comedy ‘FATMAN’ starring Mel Gibson which released November 13th by Saban.

Producer Martin Sprock on the success of HONEST THIEF… “I couldn’t be more happy, so proud of the movie and think the world has needed a couple hours of escape at the box office, our Director and Liam Neeson did a fantastic job!”

Producer Ryan R. Johnson of Sprockefeller said “We love true stories particularly with larger-than-life personalities and Steven Kalish certainly is one."

With production commencing in early Spring 2021 shooting will follow the strict guidelines put in place by the CDC and all the Guilds.
Producer Martin Sprock said “We love ‘Sea of Greed’, a fun and wild ride and it’s all true! It’s Tequila Sunrise meets Catch Me if You Can.”

Sprockefeller Pictures also announced today that they signed Film director, Justin Lee (BADLAND) who is returning to his 'western' roots and has agreed to write and direct Sprockefeller Pictures' feature film "The Devil’s Men" which takes place in the post-Civil War south and follows a woman and her family that are brutally attacked and left for dead. Seeking vengeance, the woman goes on a mission to hunt down the men responsible and enact her own form of justice.

"It is rare that we as storytellers get to take such a classic genre and flip it on it's head. I am beyond excited to get to bring strong female characters to the screen in a period piece of this magnitude especially with Sprockefeller Pictures behind it" said Lee.

Sprockefeller's Martin Sprock and Ryan R. Johnson are producing with Daemon Hillin of Hillin Entertainment and is a long-time collaborator with Lee.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 23, 2020 / — Universal City, Calif., Nov. 20, 2020 — In advance of the Thanksgiving weekend theatrical release of the new DreamWorks Animation comedy The Croods: A New Age (out Wednesday, November 25), Universal Pictures has partnered with the nonprofit organization Feeding America® for a groundbreaking three-tiered campaign to help provide one million meals** for families in need this holiday season.

First, Universal will launch the #CroodsCare Social Initiative on Twitter. The Croods are all about being good neighbors, so fans can send a tweet using #CroodsCare, tagging their neighbors or loved ones. For every tweet, Universal will make a donation to Feeding America. Every tweet using #CroodsCare between November 23 and December 31, 2020, will go towards providing up to 500,000 meals for families in need.

Second, Universal will launch a new The More You Know public-service announcement featuring the Croods and encouraging fans to donate directly to Feeding America. Fans can donate directly to Feeding America on the “Croods Care” landing page on the Feeding America website. For every donation fans make, Universal will make a matching donation up to $40,000 as part of the studio’s larger donation of $100,000 to the organization.

Third, Universal will launch a “Virtual Fruit Drive” on Nintendo’s blockbuster online video game platform, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Fans playing the game can donate a virtual piece of fruit to “Croods Cove” island, which allows players to explore the universe of The Croods: A New Age. (To access the island, players can use Dream Code: DA-1282-8266-2121.) Every virtual piece of fruit donated to the island between Nov. 23 and Dec 31 will translate into real meals that Universal will donate to a family, up to 100,000 meals.

“We’re delighted to join forces with Universal Pictures and The Croods: A New Age to help alleviate hunger for so many families who are in need across our country this winter,” said Lauren Biedron, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America. “In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread unemployment, we estimate that more than 50 million people in America may not have enough to eat this holiday season. We’re grateful to Universal, DreamWorks Animation, and the tens of millions of Croods fans out there for helping us help our neighbors in need.”

For Universal and DreamWorks Animation, the partnership between The Croods: A New Age and Feeding America felt like a perfect fit. “The Croods: A New Age is a film that celebrates the strength, power and importance of family, and it reminds us that the word ‘family’ extends far beyond the people we are related to,” said Margie Cohn, President, DreamWorks Animation. “We are all part of a national family, a human family, and we need to look out for each other. We are happy to be able to join forces with Feeding America to help provide some security and comfort for the most vulnerable members of our American family this holiday season.”

**A $1 donation helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.

There’s more than inspiration and artistic expression at stake here. We, the Latinx community, as the largest minority have not been accurately represented on screen, ever! We have so much to say, so much to offer. It's important to have platforms that support our voices and artistic expressions. I feel extremely proud & grateful to be part of a council that will give the winner filmmakers this licensing agreement with HBO for their Film.

The 6th Annual Official Latino Film and Arts Festival selected over 100 films to represent the festival. All films will be accessible from November 25-30, 2020.
