"Google Me" the movie has been picked up for distribution by two of the industry's heaviest hitters. On behalf of filmmaker Jim Killeen, Heather Winters of Studio-on-Hudson (executive producer of Morgan Spurlock's Academy Award® nominated and Sundance award-winning documentary "Super Size Me") negotiated the deal with Cinevolve Studios and Cinetic Rights Management.
Cinetic Rights Management will take a non-traditional distribution route with the film using an online distribution model. CRM utilizes such video-on-demand outlets as: iTunes, Hulu, Amazon VOD and Jaman.
"'Google' Me shows us the simple power that the internet can offer us in bringing people together who are separated by culture, geography and ideology, but joined by a common ground," says Cinevolve Studios CEO Arik Treston. "Speaking of common ground, with film as our passion, we're very excited to be in business with a talented, adventurous filmmaker such as Jim, and Studio-on-Hudson, a company whose eye for quality dovetails into Cinevolve's philosophy perfectly."
"Google" Me is a feature-length documentary about Detroit native and LA resident Jim Killeen who, like so many of us, Googled his name one evening in a moment of curiosity. The difference here that the filmmaker actually followed up on his findings by not only contacting the discovered namesakes, but also traveling to whatever remote location was called for to meet and interview the subjects of his search. Jim Killeen the filmmaker found, among others, Jim Killeen the Roman Catholic priest in Ireland, Jim Killeen the retired cop in New York, Jim Killeen the CEO in Australia and Jim Killeen the sexual swinger in Denver. As a result of his genealogical journey, Killeen winds up forging life-long friendships with the previously unknown Killeens, as well as documenting a provoking commentary on today's society and how technology has transformed all of our lives.
