Halloween Comedy Movie Chooses Distrify Over Studios & takes Indie Run at Oscar Song Nomination
Los Angeles based Writer/director/producer Linda Palmer, teams up with Nashville based Gigi de Lugo of Tropic Heat Studios, Inc. in a completely indie style distribution plan.
“Gigi brings a wealth of experience with her to our project since she’s been researching and Beta testing this platform for years. The fact that one of her clients is using it exclusively as opposed to any other mainstream distribution, is super exciting. We've known we wanted alternative distribution since we started our project, and working with Gigi is the perfect fit for us.” states director / producer, Linda Palmer.
As a great Halloween treat, today the team launched a non-exclusive release utilizing Distrify’s software as the source of Video On Demand (VOD) and physical media sales connecting the fans of the movie and award winning soundtrack to potential buyers. Everyone that shares the “Halloween Party” Distrify media player has the ability to earn a percentage of sales revenue de Lugo refers to as “fan roylaty”, automatically linked back to the fan via a unique affiliate code.

“This is exactly the type of tool we need for our target buyers at Halloween retailers. Imagine, now brick and mortar stores don’t have to carry a product (DVD) that has a high percentage of theft. They simply put the media player/ store on their website and get paid every time any kind of purchase is made.” explains Palmer.
“Halloween Party” producers are set to attend more Halloween themed conventions next year, and anticipate adding to distribution already in place with direct retailers such as video stores, book stores, mega retailers. The film team’s recent strategy, in partnership with Tropic Heat Studios, Inc., is to capitalize on enthusiasm from the hundreds of thousands of social media fans of the movie & soundtrack, by implementing the new Distrify software and fan royalty program.
The films’ soundtrack, produced and crafted specifically for “Halloween Party”, also includes a number of songs from Indie songwriters in Nashville. Six of the soundtrack’s original songs are now being promoted in a campaign for Oscar nominations hoping to be nominated for a potential award.. “Halloween Party” has already satisfied its Los Angeles release and are intent on making sure Oscar voters know about the film. Armed with Social Media marketing built-in to Distrify players, email marketing with Constant Contact & more, the producers intend to shine a spotlight illuminating independent artists from both Los Angeles & Music City, in a grassroots style of Independent Film & Music’s most organic sense of the word - revolutionary.
