C3 Entertainment, Inc. Acquires Creation’s Patriotic and Military Film Library

C3 Entertainment, Press Releases, Uncategorized

C3 has purchased over a thousand hours of historic military-themed titles from Creation Films.

C3 Entertainment, Inc. continues to grow the content and distribution segment of their business by acquiring the worldwide rights to one of the largest military film libraries. The patriotic programming from Creation Films adds to C3’s already robust library of comedy, historical, mystery and inspirational titles, and positions the company as a content leader.

Other recent C3 acquisitions and rights to distribute include the Gold Creek catalog of historical documentaries, the romantic comedy feature Love and Support, and the children’s animated educational series Rainbow Valley Fire Department.

The Creation Films Library covers the U.S. and worldwide military experience, and footage in the films features fighting forces and troops from every continent in the world. The library also contains hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with veterans and civilians from the First World War to the present. Some of The Civil War footage includes battle re-enactments with as many as 7,000 soldiers on the field at one time. Many recreated on the very fields where the original battles took place. The stock inventory used in the films ranges from Thomas Edison film shot in 1898 of the return of the Teddy Roosevelt’s “Rough Riders” from Cuba to modern footage shot during current conflicts.

We already have military and mystery titles that do very well on popular digital platforms and home entertainment,” says Ani Khachoian, C3’s Executive Vice President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution. “When the opportunity to own Creation’s vast military catalog presented itself, it was a logical progression in our distribution strategy. The acquisition allows us to increase our efforts to exploit C3’s content across traditional and emerging platforms.

Creation Films owner Edward Feuerherd, added, “Many years of love and labor went into creating these films. The library is in good hands with the talented team at C3. Through their distribution and marketing expertise, they’ll get these remarkable films the audience they deserve.

As the brand-owner of The Three Stooges®, C3 also distributes several Three Stooges titles, including the recent nine-hour docu-series, Hey Moe! Hey Dad! which recently had its broadcast premiere on Decades TV. C3 co-produced the 2012 Three Stooges Movie with Twentieth Century Fox. The company has also produced multiple television specials.

New independent productions on the horizon for C3 are a new Three Stooges Movie and the upcoming family film, The Three Little Stooges.

Some of the title highlights of the new C3 Patriotic Library include:

Pearl Harbor: Attack on America (3, 60-minute episodes) The three-hour miniseries is an in-depth look at the December 7, 1941 Japanese surprise attack on the American military base at Pearl Harbor.

The Boston Globe – 10/4/16 by: Jon Chesto

You may soon run into Jason Santos and his blue hair in some unexpected places, like the shelves of your local Target or Walmart.

The chef has been trying to find ways to deploy his brand outside of his Boston restaurants, ever since his 2010 stint on Fox’s reality TV show “Hell’s Kitchen,” hosted by Gordon Ramsay. Santos began working with C3 Entertainment, a California-based licensing agency, in 2014. Last year, he landed his first licensing deal — one that put his name and face on a Master Card debit card.

The chef has been trying to find ways to deploy his brand outside of his Boston restaurants, ever since his 2010 stint on Fox’s reality TV show “Hell’s Kitchen,” hosted by Gordon Ramsay. Santos began working with C3 Entertainment, a California-based licensing agency, in 2014. Last year, he landed his first licensing deal — one that put his name and face on a Master Card debit card.

Santos says his restaurant work remains his main passion: He’s busy tending to Abby Lane in theTheater District and Back Bay Harry’s, as well as Buttermilk & Bourbon, a new place that will open later this fall in the Back Bay. The licensing stuff? He says that’s just a hobby.

“I don’t go out and rock climb on Saturdays,” Santos says. “I go out and try to work my brand.”

Santos concedes that his blue hair has turned into an important asset, by helping to make him more memorable. It all started almost by accident, more than 20 years ago when Santos, on a whim, decided to dye his hair in a hotel room before an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show.

“It just took off,” Santos says. “[But] I just turned 40. How much longer can I rock blue hair?”

With all these products coming to stores with his mug on them, Santos has already solved his own question. The answer? Many years to come.

Ritchie Valens’ Image Reborn With New Licensing Deal

C3 Entertainment, Press Releases, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, Winter Dance Party

 

Billboard – 8/26/2016 by  –

Valens’ branded La Bamba Cola, limited edition guitars and video games part of merchandising strategy to bring Latino rock-n-roll pioneer to young audiences

La Bamba Cola, on-line video games and limited-edition guitars are some of the products planned to bring revive the popularity of Ritchie Valens. The new licensing and merchandising deal by Southern California-based C3 Entertainment marks the first time that the image of the teenage Latino rock pioneer — who died with Buddy Holly in a 1959 plane crash — will be promoted through an official licensing initiative sanctioned by Valens’ family.

“More than a retro endeavor, the multicultural aspect of Valens’ licensing program is pivotal,” Ani Khachoian, C3 Entertainment’s Executive Vice President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution, told Billboard via email. “We want to make sure every fan has the opportunity to rediscover this rock ’n’ roll icon, and that we introduce Valens to new audiences. He was a talented, positive young man, who worked hard. It’s a wonderful legacy for young people.”

C3 also represents the legacy of The Big Bopper, who died in the snowy crash with Valens and Holly while on their Winter Dance Party tour. In addition, C3 created the licensing program for John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party, a current touring tribute show featuring Mueller — who starred in The Buddy Holly Story stage musical — performing as Holly, with other artists paying homage to Valens and the Big Bopper.

Valens, best known for his hit “La Bamba,” signed to Del-Fi Records in 1958 and recorded two albums, releasing singles that included “Donna,” which reached no. 2 on the Billboard pop chart. The 1978 movie La Bamba, starring Lou Diamond Phillips with music performed by Los Lobos, brought Valens’ story to new audiences; the soundtrack album sold 2 million copies in the United States.

C3’s Khachoian says that a La Bamba Cola beverage is set to be manufactured and distributed by the Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shops chain. Online games, clothing and collectibles are also in the works. “We’re passionate about securing limited-edition guitars – Valens played several different models of guitars,” Khachoian adds. “We are also positioning him for advertising and live events.”
