CHICAGO, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A production company is launching the first known effort to debut a feature-length film to a global audience using simulcast technology. On September 16th, during STORY—Chicago's premiere event for the creative class, Historytellers Productions will announce its unique One Thousand Premieres campaign. The effort will rally 1,000 individuals to help fund Four Stones, an epic retelling of David and Goliath, by pre-purchasing live stream screenings via OneThousandPremieres.com.
STORY founder Ben Arment and film director, Santino Stoner of Dot and Cross, will take the STORY stage in Chicago to describe Four Stones. "The familiar David story will be retold in a progressive cinematic style that connects with today's audiences," Arment explains. "The film and the campaign are part of a larger story about what can happen when ordinary people have extraordinary faith."
The cost of hosting a premiere ranges from $99 to $999 depending on the size of the audience. Individuals and groups can gift the film to their communities or they can sell tickets to cover their costs. After the live-steam screenings are booked, Arment and his team plan to debut the film on the weekend of October 12-14, 2012 to churches, theaters, schools and even living rooms across the world.
