Arts Alliance America changes names

Move due to ownership shuffle

Arts Alliance America, formerly known as Hart Sharp Video, is changing names again amid an ownership shuffle.

Virgil Films and Entertainment will retain Arts Alliance’s small theatrical slate, including February release “The Caller” with Frank Langella, as well as its sizable homevid catalog. Video titles include Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me,” as well as successful sports lines under the ESPN, Major League Baseball and NESN banners.

Joe Amodei, a homevid vet who worked at Turner and Polygram before founding Hart Sharp Video, will own 100% of the new company. He had been running Arts Alliance as prexy and will continue day-to-day oversight of the Gotham-based outfit.

Virgil will scout theatrical features, docs, special-interest and sports titles. One of its recent top sellers was a season recap for the World Series-winning Philadelphia Phillies. Upcoming video releases include “The Donna Reed Show,” kid skein “The Mysterious Cities of Gold” and fest pickup “Heavy Metal in Baghdad.”
