FRAGMENTOS DE AMOR hace su debut en NETFLIX

Es el primer largometraje puertorriqueño en entrar a la plataforma

Tras ser presentada en 9 países, la película Fragmentos de Amor logra su debut en NETFLIX como el primer largometraje puertorriqueño en entrar a la plataforma. El filme erótico es basado en una novela del escritor colombiano Héctor Abad Faciolince que presenta varias historias de amor torcido, seducción y celos obsesivos.

“Estoy tan orgullosa de mi equipo y los logros que hemos obtenido. Juntos creamos una película que está dando a conocer internacionalmente el talento que hay en América Latina, al igual que está rompiendo las barreras para filmes eróticos a entrar en plataformas como NETFLIX.”, expresó Laura Duque, productora ejecutiva de Fragmentos de Amor. La película también ha sido acogida en plataformas como Amazon.

NETFLIX utiliza un sistema basado en estadísticas y datos del mercado para determinar qué películas añadir a su plataforma y cuales eliminar. Basándose en los gustos de sus socios deciden si vale la pena incluir un filme o no.  “Saber que las personas buscan filmes como el de nosotros nos inspira a continuar a hacer más filmes como este.”, dijo Duque.

Duque añade: “La película propone una historia que a muchos han pasado, un amor difícil de dejar.”  Fragmentos de Amor presenta a los amantes, Rodrigo (José Ángel Bichir) un afinador de pianos, quien en el pasado fue un brillante compositor, y Susana (Angélica Blandón), una sensual profesora de natación y escultora que guarda un oscuro secreto en el sótano de su casa.

La pasión que siente Rodrigo por Susana y más aún por las historias que noche tras noche ella le cuenta de sus amantes pasados, los celos obsesivos de Rodrigo lo inspiran a volver a componer, pero lo llevan al borde de la paranoia y a un miedo latente de convertirse en una más de sus historias.

La película fue una coproducción entre Puerto Rico y Colombia con un presupuesto de $1.8 millones y el financiamiento del Programa para el Desarrollo de la Industria Cinematográfica de Puerto Rico.

Fragmentos de Amor cuenta con participación estelar de Angélica Aragón (México), y los puertorriqueños: Luis Gonzaga, Laura Alemán y Alfredo de Quesada.

AMAZON producirá películas para el cine

IMG_6981.PNGAmazon ha decidido entrar al mercado de producir películas.

Amazon Studios producirá y comprará películas originales para salas de cine que tendrían una distribución posterior en su servicio exclusivo de Prime Instant Video.

Aquí el comunicado de prensa oficial:

Production to begin in 2015 with the goal of bringing customers a dozen original, prestige movies each year

Movies will launch in theaters and come to Prime Instant Video 30-60 days after theatrical premiere

Ted Hope to lead creative as Head of Production, Amazon Original Movies

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 19, 2015– (NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon Studios, known for television series such as multi-Golden Globe winner Transparent, Annie-nominated Tumble Leaf, and Mozart in the Jungle, today announced that it will begin to produce and acquire original movies for theatrical release and early window distribution on Amazon Prime Instant Video. Whereas it typically takes 39 to 52 weeks for theatrical movies to premiere on subscription video services, Amazon Original Movies will premiere on Prime Instant Video in the U.S. just 4 to 8 weeks after their theatrical debut. Amazon Original Movies will focus on unique stories, voices, and characters from top and up-and-coming creators.

“We look forward to expanding our production efforts into feature films. Our goal is to create close to twelve movies a year with production starting later this year,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. “Not only will we bring Prime Instant Video customers exciting, unique, and exclusive films soon after a movie’s theatrical run, but we hope this program will also benefit filmmakers, who too often struggle to mount fresh and daring stories that deserve an audience.”

Amazon Original Movies creative development will be led by independent film visionary Ted Hope. Hope co-founded and ran production company Good Machine, which produced notable and Academy Award-nominated films such as Eat Drink Man Woman and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Hope’s films have received some of the industry’s most prestigious honors including numerous Academy Award and BAFTA nominations. Hope has also won The Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival more often than any other producer at the festival with his films American Splendor, The Brothers McMullen, and What Happened Was….

“Audiences already recognize that Amazon has raised the bar with productions in the episodic realm, tackling bold material in unique ways and collaborating with top talent, both established and emerging. To help carry the torch into the feature film world for such an innovative company is a tremendous opportunity and responsibility,” said Ted Hope, the new Head of Production for Amazon Original Movies. “Amazon Original Movies will be synonymous with films that amaze, excite, and move our fans, wherever customers watch. I am incredibly thrilled to be part of this.”
