(NewsUSA) - Gordon Scott Venters thrives on challenges. As CEO of The Movie Studio (TMS) in Hollywood -- that's Florida, not Los Angeles -- he's been in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years.
Venters' resume reads like a who's who of Hollywood (California), where he was president and CEO of Destination Television, now TMS. While Venters has a soft spot for the West Coast, he is betting that, like California, South Florida will become the premier destination to produce movies.
"The energy is completely different here than in LA, and making movies in Florida has some terrific advantages," said Venters. "The visual landscape is stunning from a cinematic standpoint, there are diversified places to shoot and great visual optics. That's the value proposition in Florida."
It also doesn't hurt that the rich and famous work and play in the Sunshine State.
As a publicly traded micro-cap company, according to Venters, he knows that, although risky, there are huge growth opportunities for TMS (OTC: MVES).
"We want to give our followers, shareholders and supporters the chance to be a part of what we see as one of the newest hot studios providing full services in distribution, creativity and complete production," Venters said.
Currently, TMS has acquired a 60 percent membership interest in the Seven Arts Entertainment film library(SAFELA), giving TMS 14 titles including, "Drunkboat" with John Malkovich and John Goodman, "Night Of The Demons" with Shannon Elizabeth, "Fractured," "Knife Edge," "Shooting Gallery" with Freddie Prinze, Jr, "Nine Miles Down," "Noise," "The Pool Boys" with Matthew Lilliard, "A Broken Life" with Ving Rhames, "Autopsy," "Deal" with Burt Reynolds and Shannon Elizabeth, "Boo," "Back In The Day" with Ving Rhames and Ja Rule, and "Cemetery Gates."
Venters says he plans to bundle these with indie movies that the studio has produced, such as "Exposure" -- released on Netflix DVD and Amazon, and in Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target.
Other movies in the pipeline for TMS are "Bad Actress" and "Double Exposure." The Movie Studio completed principal photography in Colombia, South America, for its film "Bad Actress," starring Sean Stone, son of the iconic Hollywood director Oliver Stone, and The Movie Studio's sensational Latina bombshell, Excelina from Colombia.
TMS has also completed its reverse stock split (OTC- MVES) finalizing the company's corporate restructuring while tightening the float and outstanding shares.
