Romero Pictures' Indie Brigade Announced: "GEORGE C. ROMERO and his production company, Romero Pictures, has launched Romero Pictures’ Indie Brigade as the tip of the spear for a punk-rock community of indie creators in film, television and indie content.

The Indie Brigade is a place where indie creators, new and experienced can come together, collaborate, teach and learn from each other as well as our growing pool of seasoned professionals with years of experience in the larger-budget, studio system.”

Combining the Indie Brigade community with the podcast produced by Joe Ridgely, Romero offers filmmakers, musicians, and creators a place to interact with the community in a live Q&A setting as well as a community group where members collaborate, share processes, hard lessons learned, tips and tricks to help members up their production value and prepare their projects and their careers for the next step.

A legacy in the film industry, Romero has dedicated his career to carrying on the standard of quality and punk rock attitude started by a handful of outlaw creators like his father more than fifty years ago.

Additionally, Romero Pictures’ Indie Brigade has launched an indie distribution label that will curate and distribute selected projects“… with the single-minded intent of getting filmmakers’ content seen by as many people as possible,” and has appointed Dean Fernando the new Vice President of Acquisition and Distribution for Romero Pictures and the Indie Brigade.



Alamo Drafthouse and HBO Partner to Screen Stephen King's The Outsider: "It’s not TV, it’s HBO… on the big screen.

Austin-based cinema-eatery Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is expanding a partnership with HBO that will bring four highly-anticipated new series to Alamo Drafthouse theaters across the country. These free one-night-only nationwide events begin Wednesday, January 8th with an early look at THE OUTSIDER, and will continue throughout 2020.

“I’m so excited to continue our partnership with HBO in celebrating their incredible slate of original programming,” says Henri Mazza, Vice President of Content, Sponsorship & Events. “And providing fans a chance to watch the new Stephen King event series premiere in our theaters is so much fun.”

Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name, THE OUTSIDER begins by following a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a young boy. But when an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case, it leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe in. Starring Ben Mendelsohn and Cynthia Erivo, THE OUTSIDER is produced by Mendelsohn and executive producer Jason Bateman (who also directs the first two episodes) and premieres on HBO on Sunday, January 12th at 10 pm ET / 9 pm CT.

Chris Cameron (Casper Van Dien) is a network TV titan who falls from grace when he vouches for the wrong friend. Now, on the other end of a two-year prison stint, Chris is back and ready to reclaim his place as the star of the hottest show on TV. The only problem is - he's become uninsurable and the networks won't touch him, forcing Chris and his sharkish power agent Neil (Frank Krueger) to start back at the beginning.

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
