Movie studio Ave Fenix Pictures expands branch into LA

Mónica Esmeralda León founded Ave Fenix Pictures the first Hispanic movie studio in Chicago and the Midwest. Along with co-founders and executive producers Zachary Laoutides and Marius Iliescu. The team has been on a role since 2016 with films Adios Vaya Con Dios and Arise From Darkness now being found on Red Box through Lions Gate Films. Their latest film Black Ruby, the first film shot with the iPhone 7, released by The Orchard traveled the international film circuit snagging nominations in London and Rome. In late 2018 Black Ruby premiered at the Los Angeles Film Forum Awards taking home wins Best Feature, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Soundtrack and the Independent Spirit Award.

 

Co-founder European actor, dancer, artist and producer Marius Iliescu understood the genuine approaches of Ave Fenix Pictures taking the Chicago based movement to a new level. Iliescu executive produced Adios Vaya Con Dios, leading the film into a Hollywood premiere and afterward worked endlessly to establish the prevailing Los Angeles branch, creating feature films released via The Orchard, Redbox, Amazon Prime, and FandangoNOW. I was able to sit down with Iliescu, the head of Ave Fenix Pictures Los Angeles and probe about the type of journey it’s been,

“Ave Fenix Pictures has done extremely well since its inception in 2014 with three feature films conceptualized, produced and launched ‘in the house,’ against all odds of financial survival. Especially for an independent film studio born outside of the cinematic mainstream usually traced in between Los Angeles and New York with short stops in Atlanta and, occasionally New Orleans. Ave Fenix Pictures needed a special spark, which its founding members found and lit through a combination of gritty street storytelling and an unusual recipe of the Midwestern steady mind mixed with explosive Latino flair.

However, the big plays are still happening in the West and the second-best move after finding an original cinematic voice was to expand from Chicago to Los Angeles.”

 

Iliescu worked to pioneer the west coast branch since 2015 and the results started to show as distribution deals developed shortly with Ave Fenix Pictures becoming an inclusive brand. “Adios Vaya Con Dios” (2016) and “Arise From Darkness” (2017) were included by Indican Pictures in its roaster while “Black Ruby” (2019) got the eye of Random Media, a close partner of Orchard TV and Sony Pictures. Iliescu explained the methodology behind Ave Fenix Pictures in Los Angeles,

 

“These results are the products of a never give up let’s do this mentality, common cause for an ideal, an Edison finally lighting up his electric bulb for a successful ten thousandth time, if you wish… It’s important that Ave Fenix Pictures maintains its presence in LA for a number of reasons. One would be that the studio intends to start development here. Another, it’s the eye-to-eye mentality of Los Angeles, where a million-dollar deal could be happening in between a pair of raggedy jeans of an open-minded investor and a worn-out Dodgers baseball hat sitting on a head full of bright film ideas.”

 

Lastly, I inquired Iliescu how the creative process balances out with the duties of being the CEO of a studio?

 

“Creatively, I personally never met another screenplay writer with more out of this world ideas like the co-founder of Ave Fenix Pictures, Zachary Laoutides. He is not just a hell of an actor, but his mind puts such ideas on paper that are pure fuel for the expansion of the studio. There is no room here to talk about this now, but our near future actions will speak for themselves. Last but not least is the openness of the studio’s policy. We want to do good and honest business with anyone who believes that storytelling is a powerful tool in influencing people around us towards good. No matter the subject, if the film has indeed something to say, we the people, will find that element in our lives called ‘time,’ to stop whatever we’re doing and listen.”

WAYS TO GET RIDE OF SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION FROM THE GOLDEN PALM AWARD WINNING SPECIALIST

Nowadays, the first thing almost everyone does when they wake up in the morning is to check all their social media accounts. Even if this routine is not in the morning, it is valid for some people in the evening before going to bed. Social media, which is an integral element of our connection with the world, has become even more vital with the pandemic that has penetrated our lives since 2019. After quite long closures, quarantines, distance education and home office work, we started to communicate with the world only through these channels. While there are many advantages of this situation, there are also disadvantages. Although being able to reach what is happening in the world with just one click is an unavoidable blessing, it is clear that these platforms are addictive due to unconscious use on people. In this sense, Golden Palm Award-winning media consultant and author Alaattin Cagil offers advice on how to deal with social media addiction, which is one of the benefits of the internet age. This list of recommendations will now guide you to use social media efficiently; effectively and as much as you need to.

Media Consultant Alaattin Cagil Offers a Solution to Social Media Addiction

A social media addiction causes quite serious psychosocial and personality problem, social media specialist Alaattin Cagil argues that every progress and development in the world has bad aspects as well as good aspects. Especially with the pandemic process, we began to spend much more time in homes than before. For this reason, radical changes have occurred in our lives and daily lives. According to research conducted in our country in 2020, the average time spent at the beginning of the screen is 7.5 hours, Media Consultant Alaattin Cagil said, while the part of this time spent on social media is 3 hours.

We spend quite a lot of time on screen during the day, such as work, education and social media. In order to use this time more effectively and accurately, Digital Media Expert Alaattin Cagil said the following before explaining his suggestions: “it is important to adapt the good aspects of these resources to our lives. When we achieve this, technology resources that are constantly making progress contribute to our development. In this sense, we need to know very well how to turn the technology that has disadvantages in our favor. Otherwise, in the internet age, we will increasingly lose our ability to question, research and analyze by being subjected to many manipulations due to unconscious use of social media.”

Don’t Get Away From Reality with the Magic of the Virtual World

Interactions in the internet environment are slowly beginning to isolate people in the reality of the world. We create very, very different profiles, especially in social media, and we always show the best moments of our lives by sharing them. This causes us to gradually move away from our essence, that is, from our self, and as a result we face a number of personality disorders.

In addition to these aspects, social media channels offer the opportunity to communicate with important names that we may not be able to interact with in our real lives. Just a few clicks away, these important names may be a person who has reached a certain point in your career, perhaps a mentor who will make a significant contribution to your education. Therefore, instead of choosing to experience self-confidence problems by moving away from our own self, we can use these positive aspects of social media.

Don’t Imagine Accessing the Existing and Surreal Elements on Social Media

According to social media consultant Alaattin Cagil, social media has turned into a simulation in which we reflect as if we are experiencing what we are unfortunately not experiencing. Because of the phenomena that call out to quite crowded audiences in this way, many people are drifting towards a sense of self-insecurity, questioning why they cannot get to such a position. And then, like those phenomena that are followed and liked on their social media accounts, they start to picture a life that they don’t actually live, and they start to move away from themselves every day. They believe so much in the life created here that when they return to reality, they become severely depressed. It is therefore necessary to act with this awareness.

Don’t Be Addicted to Social Media

Social Media Specialist Alaattin Cagil talks about the three main needs that people constantly feel in their lives: the need to be appreciated, to be accepted and to be liked. These three needs, which are more or less present in almost every person, generally build the weaknesses of people’s personality. This is where social media comes into play. It fills these small gaps in your personality and allows you to reach the feeling of satisfaction and satisfaction.

As soon as you start to meet all these needs through your social media channels, you unfortunately fall into the clutches of these channels. You want to constantly meet these three main needs, which represent important points in the depths of the subconscious, that is, you want to constantly share and receive likes and comments. Media Consultant Alaattin Cagil states that this addiction is not different from cigarette, alcohol and substance addiction. While these habits harm our body, he underlines that social media addiction harms both our body and our personality, our soul.

We Can Turn Our Disadvantages to Our Advantage

It is also an option to take advantage of the unlimited information resources of the Internet as we wish. With the developing technology, there have been changes in certain habits that were used by the masses in the past. For example, going to the library and reading a book or buying a newspaper and following the agenda with this press tool is a thing of the past. Now we have a huge source of information just a click away. If you have internet from all over the world, you have access to almost everything. Previously, it was necessary to apply to some institutions in order to receive quality education, but today there are many online education programs with rich content. There is a very easy and comfortable access to everything you need to improve yourself in a field you are interested in.

But according to media consultant Alaattin Cagil, although he is thought to be behind, it is necessary not to lose the habit of reading books. Reading a book is quite different from copying and pasting information from the internet, following articles with our eyes, taking notes on important points, and re-examining the book after reading it offers a much different learning experience than the internet. Memory practice greatly improves the ability to store and analyze information. Reading on the Internet offers a completely different experience. In the vast pool of information on the internet, proven and finely crafted texts may not always be available. In this sense, you need to analyze very well where to read about what on the internet. E-book is a very practical and useful option. You can store hundreds of books inside your tablet and access them at any time.
