Next Up for Platt & Lowenthal is ITVFest 2012 / PopConLA 2012, where "Shelf Life" has been chosen for Official Selection to be screened at the LA Convention Center in Downtown LA, July 5-8. "We are thrilled to be an Official Selection because it shows how web content is finally becoming a force to be reckoned with in today's marketplace,"
After PopConLA, they will head to San Diego for Comic-Con--one of the biggest gatherings of all media including mainstream, gaming, sci-fi, and geeks alike-- and will participate in a panel at this year's SDCC called "Moving to the Web: Be Your Own Producer" (7/13/12 at 7:30pm). Tara gushes, "We are really looking forward to the panel at SDCC this year. I think that people are looking for ways to empower themselves by creating and producing projects they are passionate about, and I can't wait to share our experiences and learned lessons with them." "I'm excited to be a part of the Moving to the Web panel at Comic-Con this year because SDCC is a flash point of nerdy creative energy and it's where this new programming will come from," excitedly exclaims Yuri Lowenthal.
Monkey Kingdom Productions, Tara Platt & Yuri Lowenthal's production company which is based in downtown Los Angeles, has produced the feature films, "Tumbling After" and "Con Artists" (due out later this year), as well as co-producing "Shelf Life" with Ultimatum Entertainment and Butcher Birds Studios. They also have an independent publishing company, called Bug Bot Press, which has published their book "Voice-Over Voice Actor - What it's Like Behind the Mic" and will be publishing the novella "Tough City" later this year. Recently, Platt & Lowenthal were interviewed about their love for Downtown Los Angeles and why they chose to base their company there. They were given ten questions to answer specifically about Downtown LA via the Concierge Questionnaire. One question asked, a la James Lipton's 'Inside the Actors Studio', was, "If Heaven were Downtown Los Angeles, what would God say to a visitor when they arrive at the Pearly Gates?" Their Answer, "I hope you're hungry." You can find more of their answers here: https://www.conciergequestionnaire.com/
