Volume 6 Issue 9 – The Discovery Channel Joins MOD

Discovery Channel Goes MOD, TCM Film Festival Dazzles, Janis Joplin Doc Live

Allied Vaughn Studio Collection
Exclusive DVD, CD and Blu-ray Titles
Volume 6 Issue 9
This week, Allied Vaughn’s extensive collection of exclusive programs on DVD and Blu-ray expands yet again with the addition of The Discovery Channel, one of the top rated networks and a vast library of content appealing to all ages and interests. Under the management of aggregator Cinedigm, the first wave of titles are now available to AV Retailers and ready to ship. The rapid adoption by near every major studio and retailer of Allied Vaughn’s MOD model points to the value and efficiency the MOD supply chain brings physical media retail. For retailers, it’s new content to promote every week!

You’ll find new Warner Archives Blu-rays including “Father of the Bride“, Film Detective’s Blu-ray of Roger Corman’s “The Terror” and from FilmRise, the direct to video release of “Janis-Little Girl Blue“..shouldn’t you be releasing through MOD?

Why Allied Vaughn MOD Distribution?
Studios and Retailers alike find the Allied Vaughn On Demand technology and distribution model the perfect solution to shrinking retail real estate for catalog titles and increasing costs along every step in the traditional DVD supply chain. No inventory, no extensive ROI to achieve or forecast and with studio resources now focused on digital delivery, having Allied Vaughn focus on the physical delivery solves those pressures and insures content retail across all sales channels. 

For our classic film readers, over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival in Hollywood and was wowed by the scope and quality of this event. Over 25,000 attended to screen 3 days of classic films and sit in on interviews with Francis Ford Coppola, Carl Bernstein, Elliot Gould, Danny DeVito, Adam West, Lee Meriwether, Carl Reiner, Gina Lollobrigida,Christopher Loyd, Faye Dunaway, Alec Baldwin, Ted Donaldson, Illeana Douglas, and Angela Lansbury. Noted films included ALL THE PRESIDENTS MEN, THE KING AND I, BUENA SERA MRS.CAMPBELL, THE CONVERSATION and from the Allied Vaughn Collection SHANGHAI EXPRESS, TRAPEZE, GOG, THE BIG SLEEP, THE YEARLING..many many more. Mark this festival down for next year, it’s not to be missed.

Allied Vaughn is very proud of it’s relationship with TCM, providing their catalog to AV Retailers via our MOD DVD and Blu-ray distribution technology and it was an honor to have the opportunity to meet with collectors of classic films and share our passion for collecting. Celebrate with the TCM titles below with your customers and you’ll be pleased to know that more are on their way!

Successful retailing…

Janis Joplin Rocks in “Little Girl Blue” from FilmRise

889290616616    Janis: Little Girl Blue – Special Director’s Edition    2015  
889290598202    Janis: Little Girl Blue – Special Director’s Edition(BD)  

Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic of all rock & roll singers, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1970 at age 27. With “Janis: Little Girl Blue,” Oscar-nominated director Amy J. Berg (“Deliver Us from Evil,” “West of Memphis”) examines Joplin’s story in depth, presenting an intimate, insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist.   Joplin’s own words tell much of the film’s story through a series of letters she wrote home over the years, many made public here for the first time (and read by Southern-born indie rock star/actor Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power). Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her recordings have never left the radio or the hearts of rock fans. Berg’s “Janis: Little Girl Blue” offers new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose meteoric rise and sudden demise changed music forever and continues to influence female musicians.    “”Janis: Little Girl Blue,”” written and directed by Amy J. Berg and produced by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney (“Going Clear,” “Taxi to the Dark Side”), features exclusive interviews with musicians Pink, Kris Kristofferson, Melissa Etheridge, Bob Weir, Juliette Lewis, famed TV presenter Dick Cavett, counterculture filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker and the Joplin family.
This Special Director’s Edition DVD comes packed with over 30 minutes of bonus features, including extended interviews with family, friends, musicians that Janis inspired, musical performances by Kris Kristofferson and The Big Brother Guys and an exclusive look into the Walk of Fame Ceremony for Janis. English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired included.

“ENTHRALLING!” – New York Times
“MIND-BLOWING!” – ScreenDaily”   Stars Janis Joplin, Chan Marshall, Pink, Kris Kristofferson, Melissa Etheridge, Bob Weir, Juliette Lewis, Dick Cavett, D.A. Pennebaker, Michael Joplin, Laura Joplin
