Lucky Hat Entertainment and IndiePix Studios Announce Joint Production Financing Agreement

  • Lucky Hat joins IndiePix Studios as Executive Producer on titles 'P-Star Rising' and 'Entre Nos' premiering at Tribeca later this month
  • Agreement to co-produce two titles per year; 2010 titles to be announced later this summer

New York, US – 15 April, 2009 – IndiePix, the Internet-based distributor of independent films, has today announced a production agreement with Lucky Hat Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based production company. Lucky Hat will join IndiePix as Executive Producer on two films – 'P-Star Rising' and 'Entre Nos' – premiering at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The parties plan to jointly develop and produce two more films per year through 2011.

Lucky Hat Entertainment was co-founded by Stephen Bannatyne and Marcia Carver in 2007. The company has been involved with a number of critically acclaimed independent films including 'The Order of Myths', which won the LaCoste Truer Than Fiction Award at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards and 'Goodbye Solo', which was recently hailed as “An almost perfect film” by A.O. Scott of the New York Times. Steve Bannatyne, Executive Producer: “Marcia and I are very excited about partnering with IndiePix on this six picture deal. 'P-Star Rising' and 'Entre Nos', our first two films under this agreement, are quality offerings and we look forward to working closely with IndiePix Studios to bring many more top notch independent projects to the market. There are now far less funding options available for independent filmmakers – especially in the current climate – so IndiePix Studios is an extremely important offering and one that we are delighted to be partnered with."

Bob Alexander, President of IndiePix: “With Lucky Hat’s proven track-record and impressive experience in the film and production industry, it will play a pivotal role in IndiePix Studios' titles from development through their final stages of production and distribution. We are delighted with the success of our IndiePix Studios division and are excited about how its first film slate will be received. This co-production agreement with Lucky Hat underpins our commitment to continue developing this division as we look towards announcing our second release slate later this year,” Bob Alexander concluded.
