ROANOKE, Va., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hollywood Cinema in Martinsville, Virginia played host to the premiere of "EVARB," (http://www.evarbmovie.com/) an ambitious feature film written and directed by 13-year-old Audrey Hope. The response was enthusiastic, to say the least. Now, Audrey and her team at TBE Studios are looking for an individual or company willing to help distribute the film globally and to fund the production of a sequel. A trailer for this imaginative and original fantasy adventure is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iEt50d2So4.
Although the target audience for "EVARB" is tweens and teens, adults have been equally enthralled. "This is the best quality local film I've seen," remarked Star News anchor Charles Roark. "I appreciated that Hope handled gore in a tasteful manner and that she represented the community well," added Jennifer Doss, Martinsville Director of Tourism.
TBE Studios, the production company behind "EVARB," calls the film a "true recipe for success" in the way it connects with viewers in every age group. The company was founded in February 2016, when Hope was only 12. Since then, the TBE Studios team has worked tirelessly to bring the young writer and director's vision to the big screen. The company believes this debut film will be the first of many.
"I've always had a passion for storytelling," explained Hope. "I love technology, reading and acting, and I've been writing and directing plays for my family and friends for as long as I can remember."
"EVARB" takes the audience on an adventure with three children who discover a secret passage while cleaning an attic. The passage transports them to a faraway realm called EVARB, where they encounter a group of native children. The leaders of this native group explain that the arrival of three children from another land was foretold in a prophecy. According to the prophecy, these visitors have the power to pull mysterious diamonds from the ground. What none of them know is that scientists have been sending three gifted children to EVARB every 100 years to study their brains, with the motive of creating the perfect world leader. How these threads intertwine and resolve themselves is the story of "EVARB."
TBE Studios is already in the process of drafting the script for the sequel to "EVARB," along with a second feature film entitled "Lincoln and Me." The release date for "Lincoln and Me" will be in summer 2017.
