Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Afterlight Pictures, an Atlanta based entertainment company, today announced they have reached an agreement with Stan Harrington and Xristos Productions to release their award winning documentary “So You Want Michael Madsen?”.
“So You Want Michael Madsen?” profiles the need, journey and obsession of independent filmmakers to secure name talent for their films. The documentary includes exclusive interviews with Golden Globe and Emmy winning actors John Saxon (“Enter the Dragon”) and Holland Taylor (“Two and a Half Men”); also Doug Hutchison (“The Green Mile”), Paula Jai Parker (“Hustle and Flow”), Adrian Zmed (“T.J. Hooker”), Jim Parrack (“True Blood”), and of course Michael Madsen (“Reservoir Dogs”). The film has earned “Best Documentary – Las Vegas Film Festival” and “Golden Reel Award – Nevada Film Festival”.
“The most rewarding part of this project was the realization that most actors value their craft and are hungry for quality content,” said director Stan Harrington. “Their reward comes from the satisfaction of expressing themselves through unique roles and not the compensation they receive for these roles.”
“This behind the Hollywood curtain documentary offers something to filmmakers of every level,” said Zeke Flatten, President of Afterlight Pictures. “Stan’s approach humanizes celebrities and empowers filmmakers to go after the talent they desire for their films. It also provides the general audience with insight into how actors choose their projects.”
Afterlight Pictures was established in 2008 as a distribution outlet for independent films and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information about Afterlight Pictures, visit http://www.afterlightpictures.com.
