Netcaster Hypnotic has partnered with management and production outfit Quality Filmed Entertainment to develop film and television projects.
Deal also calls for Hypnotic to represent and license the rights to Quality’s library of short films; the two companies to jointly produce short film and Web content; and Quality to rep new filmmakers who emerge out of Hypnotic’s annual Million Dollar Film Fest.
Quality produced the reality series “Go Sick!” for entertainment Netcaster Atomfilms, as well as the cult hit “George Lucas in Love,” which helped put tyro writing directing team Tim Dowling and Joe Nussbaum on the map. Company is finishing up “Save Virgil,” featuring Adam Carolla, Ginger Lynn and Gary Coleman.
Los Angeles-based Quality is headed by producer managers Steven Hein and Gary Bryman, who specialize in jump-starting careers of young writers and directors through short films.
“We are very excited about working with Hypnotic, as we are both in the business of delivering creative ways to launch new filmmakers and entertainment properties,” Bryman said.
Last year, U-backed Hypnotic merged with Nibblebox.com. Company is trying to expand its acquisition and development of original entertainment for content buyers, consumer brands and ad agencies while developing the talents of emerging filmmakers for commercials, television and feature-film production.
