“The release of ‘SCREWBALL’ on VOD is exciting for Camelot,” explained Jeffrey Giles, VP of Sales and Distribution. “VOD allows viewers the chance to bring the film instantly into their homes, while other platforms, such as iTunes, permit the film to be streamed or downloaded to a computer or mobile device.”
Camelot’s marketing strategy targeted social media platforms, including the launch of an interactive website (http://www.Screwball-the-Movie.com), college outreach, and involving wiffle ball enthusiasts.
“This has been a fun movie to promote,” added Jessica Kelly, VP of Marketing and Public Relations. “We’ve been working closely with colleges and the Big League Wiffle Ball Association, whom have all loved the film. This mockumentary is extremely creative.”
‘SCREWBALL’ is produced by Pixie Productions and Dundee Entertainment, produced and directed by director Tommy Reid, and written by Ross Patterson.
The cast includes Patterson (Accepted, 7-10 Split), Joey Kern (Super Troopers), Christine Lakin (You Again), Robert Ray Shafer (“The Office”), Andy Milder (“Weeds”), and Alana Ubach (Meet the Fockers).
SCREWBALL: THE TED WHITFIELD STORY takes place during the Major League Baseball strike in 1994, when the nation turned its eyes from baseball to professional wiffle ball. The story follows the pursuit of Ted Whitfield, the greatest player of all time and his attempt to break the home run record.
