BOTTLE SHOCK Helmer Randy Miller Forms New Company
Adding to the dwindling lists of distribs, Consolidated Pictures Group has planted a flag at Sundance.
The new company was formed by BOTTLE SHOCK helmer Randy Miller, producer Jody Savin, and Leonidas Films’ Timothy Cavanaugh and James Mancuso. With equity in place, the group plans to produce and acquire films, with Sundance being the first hunting ground.
Miller and Savin found success in self-distributing BOTTLE SHOCK after its Sundance 2008 preem. Pic cumed $4.5 million domestically.
"The distribution model for independent films is broken," said Miller, "and my partners and I determined to do for others what we did for BOTTLE SHOCK."
