"MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS" ON DVD
My documentary MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS has arrived on DVD. The film made its theatrical debut in 2010 and its broadcast premiere on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network in 2011. It's available for purchase at most DVD online retailers like Amazon and via digital purchase or rental on iTunes.
The film is part of the "OWN Documentary Club," which features other titles like Bailey and Barbato's Emmy nominated "Becoming Chaz" and the Forest Whitaker produced "Serving Life." MVP has played at film festivals around the world and won the "Documentary Channel Audience Award" at the 2011 Nashville Film Festival, amongst other accolades. (It's playing in Calgary, Canada this month and in San Luis Obisbo next month. )
The documentary follows three Pennsylvania high schools en route to the Freddy Awards, a live television event that's sort of the Tony Awards for high school musicals. Matthew D. Kallis directed the film. I produced and wrote the documentary after coming upon a clip from the Freddy Awards on Youtube.
The DVD features eight additional minutes that were not seen on the OWN broadcast. The EXTRAS include an introduction by Oprah Winfrey, a reunion with cast members, nine deleted scenes, an outtakes reel and filmmaker commentary.
Here's the trailer:
