Ginger Media & Entertainment does it again: The Evolution of Andrew Andrews boasts largest audience at Dances With Film Festival

The Evolution of Andrew Andrews wowed the crowd at The 13th Annual Dances with Films Festival in Los Angeles in June. No other film in their category sold as many seats at Laemmle Sunset 5 in West Hollywood.

The Evolution of Andrew Andrews is the brainchild of comedic duo Will Klipstine and Amy Mills under the duos Singing River Productions umbrella. Directed by Klipstine, this charming, odd-ball comedy looks at what it takes for a 30-year-old boy to grow up.

“The Evolution of Andrew Andrews is silly and gross, tender and sweet. A wonderful vehicle for Will Klipstine’s obvious comedic touch and featuring a truly marvelous performance from Amy Mills, The Evolution of Andrew Andrews is sure to be a crowd-pleaser throughout its festival run. If you get a chance, catch this indie jewel!

While the film’s gross-out humor may bring to mind any number of Sandler films, it is the marvelous chemistry between Klipstine and Mills that evokes memories of the underrated gem Lars and the Real Girl. As the human connection sparks between Andrew and Mills’ Olivia, The Evolution of Andrew Andrews evolves itself into an indie comedic gem sure to connect with festival and niche’ crowds.

The truly revelatory performance in The Evolution of Andrew Andrews belongs to Amy Mills, who co-wrote and co-produced the film and gives a genuinely funny and heartfelt performance that exudes a depth seldom seen in low-budget indie flicks. Mills is clearly an acting force to be reckoned with, and one can only hope her performance here continues to open cinematic doors. ”  Richard Propes. The Independent Critic.

The filmmakers are actively seeking distribution.

Sometimes I’m hired for the long haul, other times I’m hired just to fill seats for one screening. “Prince of Swine” was sold out for their last 4 screenings in Hollywood. “The Evolution of Andrew Andrews” was a festival film and screened once in Hollywood. The film sold the most seats. “9909″ secured a distributor. “Infection: The Invasion Begins” DVD was sold out on Amazon. I am also the only company around who posts 7-days a week on Facebook and Twitter. I have one of the largest networks in the business and I’ve been interviewed on national radio about my role in promoting independent film through social media. I have clients across the USA, UK, Canada and Australia. There’s no fancy and expensive banners or Facebook ads or commercials. All promotion is done on a grassroots level though my large network, SEO and bookmarking and network marketing-which makes us perfect for independent film. On the traditional side, we pitch publications for column space, reviews, interviews, and write press releases.

Fishbowl LA blogger Tina Dupuy threatens Brit readers over BP slur

I complained about Fishbowl LA blogger Tina Dupuy posting this insult on her blog: “We thought it was nice revenge to unleash Sarah Palin on the Brits who have mucked up our coasts with their incompetence. Tit for tat. A shill for a spill.”

I posted and emailed my complaint to Fishbowl LA and Tina Dupuy sent me this threatening email: “If you don’t want me to post your ridiculous “complaint” sticking up for British people and calling our blog a magazine, I suggest you knock off your flaming. I will post your email. It will not make you look good. Are we clear?”

My complaint has been posted for all to see. Here it is again:

Patt Morrison on Palin Chasing Thatcher Photo Op – mediabistro.com: FishbowlLA “What the hell do you mean the by this trashy article? I am promoting your article for abuse. How dare you say the Brits trashed the US coastline? What an amateur “journalist” you are. 35% of BP is owned by the USA AND the British people did not trash the USA coastline…”

Patt Morrison on Palin Chasing Thatcher Photo Op – mediabistro.com: FishbowlLA “Unbelievably cruel and insulting on the British people. Ooh, what about he banking collapse mess and the world wide recession caused by the USA? I can’t believe how insensitive an asshole you are and that you are actually employed by MediaBistro.”

Patt Morrison on Palin Chasing Thatcher Photo Op – mediabistro.com: FishbowlLA We thought it was nice revenge to unleash Sarah Palin on the Brits who have mucked up our coasts with their incompetence. Tit for tat. A shill for a spill. “What an insulting asshole you are for this unbelievable statement. Just shows what an unprofessional you are. I…”

“I’ve already posted my email everywhere. I have nothing to hide but you are now threatening me and I have that in the email you sent me. You are so unprofessional. I’ve never experienced this from any “journalist” anywhere. You have threatened me and so now I will post your threats all over because it’s a free country and “journalists” should not be sending threatening emails.”

“I will never read your bullshit magazine ever again and I am reporting Tina Dupuy for hate language and for insulting the British people. You guys are supposed to be professionals. This is so shocking. I have promoted this sick article throughout the media and the amateurishness of Tina Dupuy.”

“Do you actually know that your reporters are threatening your readers? I’ve been a fan of you guys for years and even been to a few Media Bistro classes. I work in media and I have never known a reporter to threaten her/his readers. The following email, the Twitter post this reporter sent to me, all my posts to your blog and your original post were all reposted last night and today so I’m not sure why your reporter is threatening me but it sure is making her famous for all the wrong reasons.” Ginger Liu

This is what Fishbowl LA blogger Tina Dupuy emailed to me after I complained to Fishbowl LA:

“Hi Ginger,

I assumed some crazy person had hacked your email account and was sending out insane emails. Now I see that it’s you. If you don’t want me to post your ridiculous “complaint” sticking up for British people and calling our blog a magazine, I suggest you knock off your flaming. I will post your email. It will not make you look good. Are we clear?

TD”

Tina Dupuy also sent me this Twitter:

I did not have Dupuy’s contact so I emailed Fishbowl LA with my complaint. Dupuy sent this Twitter to me: “tinadupuy @gingerliu  “Hey Overpost, before you flame me on the Internet you could grow a pair and talk to me directly. Youre impugning my character”

Prince of Swine screenings in Hollywood sold out on last day. Ginger Media & Entertainment Social Media Marketing and PR does it again!

All four screenings of Prince of Swine were sold out at Laemmle Sunset 5 yesterday.

Prince of Swine is a wild and revolutionary new comedy, a metaphor for the state of the country, and a rowdy send up of everything from the new feminism to Wall Street to the American religion of celebrity.

“Toma, who stars, wrote, directed and produced Prince of Swine, has a good film on his hands. He makes excellent use of Los Angeles as his backdrop, filming surprisingly stylized and haunting scenes. Shots of Hollywood Boulevard haven’t looked this cool since Pretty Woman. Toma easily captures the vibe of what it’s like to be a girl in this town, especially a girl who wants to be famous, by any means necessary.

All in all, Prince of Swine is a well-made satire that’s easily enjoyed, provided you’re not expecting Citizen Kane.” Ebony March. Campus Circle.

Hollywood based Ginger Media & Entertainment specializes in promoting independent film and art through social media marketing and PR. Ginger Liu has one of the largest social networks in the business and is a film and media graduate of the University of Westminster in London.
