Here comes another project by MyTV New England, and it is set to launch February 5th. Rock Your Head Productions and Fat Foot Films in collaboration with MyTV New England are announcing the special theatrical premiere of a new indie film, Joy and the Apocalypse, at the Red River Theatre in Concord, NH at 3 p.m. Following the movie, there will also be a reception and Q&A session with cast and crew.
Part of new “Independent Film Series” that Keith Dorrington, Executive Producer and Writer for the Boston-made hit The Fighter, personally endorses, Joy and the Apocalypse is the first movie that MyTV New England Studios plans to release for a limited theatrical opening and also a subsequent broadcast premiere. Roughly 7.1 million people in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and parts of Maine could potentially tune in for the broadcast of the film on the MyTV New England channel on February 12th from noon to 2 p.m. The special will include a behind-the-scenes documentary, Filmmaker Q&A shot at the movie premiere, and more exciting features.
The film is unique because “we used state of the art camera equipment and it was produced in a film / tv hybrid type way,” says Christopher Murphy, Film and TV Development Executive for MyTV New England. ”It lowered the cost of production, but still looks cinematic.”
Joy and the Apocalypse is truly a homegrown production, as it was shot in Boston and all members of the cast and crew are from the New England area. “Unlike most indie feature films produced in New England, there is a commercial TV advertising campaign beginning this week,” says Murphy. “We have a deal with Regal Cinemas to advertise their Hollywood movies in New England on our TV channel, but internally we’re also going to also advertise any indie feature film that we collaborate on.”
