PorchLight Launches Indie Line12 May, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
PorchLight Home Entertainment has branched out again, announcing another new label.
Just a few weeks after launching Inspire, an inspirational and faith-based line of DVDs, PorchLight's independent film line, Ocean Park Home Entertainment, will debut Aug. 26 with Pope Dreams, where a 19-year-old tries to fulfill his dying mother's wish to meet the Pope. Preorder is July 23 and SRP is $24.98.
“The Ocean Park label further expands PorchLight Home Entertainment's reach into all genres of programming on DVD,” said PorchLight president Gary Jones. “Ocean Park is being launched as a showcase for films that are the best of today's independent filmmaking, films that are innovative and quality entertainment that appeal to a broad and diverse demographic.”
The second Ocean Park DVD will be Outsourced on Sept. 2 (preorder July 30; $24.98), where a customer call center worker has his job outsourced to India, and he has to travel there to train his replacement.
“The debut of Ocean Park Home Entertainment further expands PorchLight Entertainment's commitment to bring multi-tiered and full-service global distribution and marketing services to independent filmmakers,” said Robert Yu, VP of feature film acquisitions for PorchLight Home Entertainment.
