HQGE’s Big M Entertainment Pictures Completes Majority of Principal Photography for Feature Film CAPTURED and Initiates Development of New Feature Film THE VACATION
Los Angeles, CA, Aug. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- HQ Global Education, Inc. (OTC: HQGE) and its subsidiary Big M Entertainment Pictures announced today that Big M Entertainment
has completed the majority of principal photography for its feature film CAPTURED and remains on schedule to deliver the completed film before the end of calendar year 2020. The company also made a
second surprise announcement that it has initiated development on a previously unreported feature film, THE VACATION, that it expects to be completed and ready for distribution in the first half of
2021. THE VACATION has been added to an already ambitious production schedule for 2020-21 that includes finalizing distribution plans for CAPTURED and its documentary TREES, several previously
announced feature films and two previously announced TV series, one scripted and the other unscripted.
Big M Entertainment CEO Marvin Williams commented, "We are very fortunate to have a terrific slate of film and TV projects in various stages of production. Our latest addition, THE VACATION was actually a bit of a surprise and the result of a twist of fate. First we were recently able to add several highly effective executives to our management and production teams, and then, when our filming schedule of CAPTURED was slowed slightly due to the coronavirus restrictions, the skeleton concept we had been considering for a related film blossomed into a fully formed project and within a few weeks that film, THE VACATION, was greenlighted. We are now working on the final pickups for CAPTURED, which we expect to finish within the next week or two, which we are able to do in a much shorter time frame than the several months that large studios typically need, and since we're working post-production in tandem, we've been able to stay on schedule for CAPTURED and simultaneously assign some of our resources to THE VACATION as well."
Although THE VACATION will likely be perceived in its final form as a "sister film" to CAPTURED, it is actually a stand-alone story in its own right. THE VACATION is a dramatic and exciting "ripped-from-the-headlines" nail-biter inspired by actual events in which a couple on vacation crosses paths with a group of identity thieves / serial killers and find themselves in a fight for their lives. THE VACATION has already attracted the attention of investment groups who have verbally committed to financing the film, and pending completion of the deal, pre-production could begin as early as Sept/Oct 2020 with a projected delivery by Feb/Mar 2021.
