Scott Martin, Michael Slifkin, and the Inside Story at Archstone Distribution, Los Angeles
Scott Martin and Michael Slifkin of Archstone Distribution, Los Angeles, are not only involved with the distribution of films, but production and every other aspect of filmmaking as well
Scott Martin and Michael Slifkin are the founding partners of Archstone Distribution. They began with Archstone Pictures producing films, but soon realizing the importance of distribution, were joined by Braden Bowen, who now focuses on distribution and runs the company's day to day operations.
Along with their distribution company, Scott and Michael continue to be very actively involved in every aspect of filmmaking through Archstone Pictures, with multiple films in development and various stages of production.
Iceland, Settle the Score with a .44, Slay Ride, and Paradise Burning are in development. Awaken, Out of the Burning Blue, and P-51 Dragon Fighter are in production.
Scott Martin is also an actor, writer, director, and producer. He was a guest of honor at the Producers Network at the recent Marche du Film in Cannes. Scott is the director of Slay Ride, and will appear onscreen as Lt. John Robbins, the lead in P-51 Dragon Fighter.
Michael Slifkin is producing all seven projects!
Scott Martin notes: “I’m excited to be in the position we are in, with three films in production and several in development. We have worked very hard to get to this point, and we’re looking forward to adding more projects to our slate in the near future.”
Archstone Distribution recently sold the foreign rights into a dozen territories for the crime action thriller Gutshot Straight at the recent Cannes Film Market. Directed by Justin Steele, Gutshot Straight stars George Eads (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), AnnaLynne McCord (90210, Excision), Steven Seagal (Above the Law, Under Siege), Vinnie Jones (Snatch; Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Ted Levine (Monk, Shudder Island), and Tia Carrere (True Lies, Lilo & Stitch).
Known and respected as a filmmaker friendly company, Archstone adheres to a policy of open-book accounting and transparency where producers have 100% approval of all marketing expenses and sales deals made in the worldwide marketplace.
They will continue to work with a growing family of filmmakers, delivering their visions to the world!
