Trailer of New Brand USA Big Screen Film to debut next week in Chicago: Buoyed by the ongoing success of its National Parks Adventure giant screen film, Brand USA is on schedule to for a February 2018 world premiere of a new film that will highlight musical and cultural treasurers of the United States.
Tom Garzilli, chief marketing officer for Brand USA, explained at last week’s meeting of the Brand USA board’s marketing committee, that the film’s producer, MacGillivray Freeman, will show a trailer of the work-in-progress at the Giant Screen Cinema Association International Conference and Trade Show Sept. 26-29 in Chicago. The same trade show served as the venue for the preview of the trailer of the National Parks Adventure, which debuted in February 2016 in Washington, DC.
To date, Garzilli said, the audience of National Parks Adventure is 4 million. Total global trailers views have exceeded 60 million, and the film is currently showing in 46 cities abroad. Also Youku (one of China’s biggest video sites) streaming views are just under 840,000.
While the National Parks film featured the USA’s great outdoors, MacGillivray Freeman Films President Shaun MacGillivray says the new film follows singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc as he explores some of America’s iconic cultural cities and traces jazz legend Louis Armstrong’s footsteps through the locales where America’s music was born. Viewers will be immersed in the sights and sounds of New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Nashville, Miami Beach and more. They will see visionaries, artists, music makers and innovators who are shaping America’s culture today.
Thus far, crews have done filming in New York City, Miami, Washington DC, Chicago, New Orleans, Detroit and Seattle. Locations still scheduled for filming include Nashville, Memphis, Los Angeles, Austin, St. Louis, Charleston, Oklahoma City, Colorado and Albuquerque.
