Hollywood, Fl (PRWEB) June 20, 2011
KSC Kreate, a creative agency specializing in visual content creation and digital asset management, and its film division, Kreate Films, announce today the start of production on their first feature film “Finding Joy.” Production will begin on June 20 and continue through July 17. The film not only marks a milestone in the growth of KSC as a company, but will also help to fuel south Florida’s economy, creating approximately 60 jobs in the area, in addition to ancillary benefits such as hotel stays, transportation, dining and shopping.
“The production of this film not only marks the continuation of our journey into the business of TV and film, but it will help generate jobs and business for our local economy, a win-win for the KSC Kreate team,” said Shona Tuckman, the writer and creative force behind the film. Shona is also one half of the under-40 husband and wife duo that runs KSC Kreate. She acts as CEO of the company and her husband, Brad Tuckman, acts as president, handling their print, online, photography and creative services.
KSC Kreate has been contributing to the south Florida economy for over a decade. With roots as a photo studio, KSC has grown into a local powerhouse serving clients such as Office Depot, Chico’s, Jarden Consumer Solutions, Newell Rubbermaid, Walmart and Bed, Bath & Beyond. KSC currently has a staff of 75 employees, in addition to about 30 freelance stylists and makeup artists and over 100 models who are hired on a monthly basis.
“We seized the opportunity created by the down economy to hire experienced staff and build a creative environment here in southern Florida,” said Brad. “Even though big companies have moved away from the area, we continue to bring them back with our top-tier creative photo and video services.”
“Finding Joy” is the first film production for Kreate Films. The studio plans to bring more projects to southern Florida and further expand into the film and TV business, using Shona’s knowledge of the industry and the KSC Kreate studio as a backbone of support and resources.
Prior to her position at KSC, Shona studied TV and film production in the United Kingdom. She later moved to the United States and has since written, produced and directed several award-winning short and feature length films. “Finding Joy” is her latest work, and is being described as a comedy in the vein of “Little Miss Sunshine” and “500 Days of Summer.” Josh Cooke stars as self-absorbed writer Kyle Livingston, and Liane Balban plays his bohemian love interest Joy Bailey. The film also stars Barry Bostwick as Alan, Kyle’s father, and Lainie Kazan, Alan’s live-in lady friend. Carlo De Rosa has signed on to direct the film, marking his feature film directorial debut.
