Group 1200 will Bring New Releases to Big Screens Using TDS Distributor

LOS ANGELES, CA

Click Here to Set Up a DemoJuly 23, 2015 – Woodland Hills-based Hollywood Software announced today that it has signed an exclusive deal with independent entertainment studio, Group 1200, to utilize its TDS Distributor product for all upcoming theatrical releases. The studio, which is fast growing into a market leader in the acquisition, creation, production, distribution, licensing and marketing of a wide range of anime, TV shows and movies, chose Hollywood Software to support the distribution of its theatrical products.

“Group 1200 is a company that’s releasing a few films now, and has significant plans to grow,” said David Gajda, President, Hollywood Software. “What’s great about TDS is that you don’t have to be one of our large studio clients to utilize the software. We can accommodate the major studio, mini-major and independent studio with one single efficient solution.”

“We’re seeing a group of new indies starting up right now,” Gajda continued. “We expect there to be more in the future as virtual print fees start to disappear. Distributors who might have one or two films and couldn’t compete in the marketplace previously, will now be able to release their products in the marketplace. We’re thrilled to be able to offer indies and niche companies like Group 1200 the support they’ll need to distribute their product to exhibitors around the world once VPFs are no longer a barrier to entry.
