You gotta have a plan!

Willy-Gilly Productions is moving forward with its plans to fund its own direct-to-exhibitor distribution model of the new movie "Collar". Aiding them in this task will be Vincent Mazzetti of Myles Financial and Steven Spiegel of Spiegel Legal, both located in Florida, New York. They are working to assemble the information and the team required to establish a new entity that will provide the distribution supports to promote "Collar" in local markets. The anticipated projected cost is one and a half million dollars. This history-making plan is to be implemented subsequent to the world premiere on August 4th at the Paramount Theatre in Middletown, and will spread to twenty cities and some 250 screens across the United States over the next six weeks. You can participate in the launch at Join us and be a part of making history!

Divide and conquer

Willy Gilly Productions CEO Nan Gill-Wilson headed for Manhattan today to sit in on an MTA instruction session on how to access government contracts. Willy Gilly, itself a woman-owned small business, recently received its certification to start bidding on all contracts for services to companies doing business with the state; at least twenty percent of these contracts must be awarded to minority and woman owned businesses. Concurrently, COO David Patrick Wilson, after finishing the rewrite on the feature film "36 Hours", attended the Orange County Partnership MVP Breakfast with mortgage broker Ken Butler, where they discussed creative financing for film and TV production. Congratulations to John Lavelle and Dominic Cordisco, winners of this year's award for their work with the Alliance For Balanced Growth. Both WGPI principals met yesterday at SUNY Orange with former congressman Ben Gilman and his wife, Georgia, and then later at the SUNY Orange mansion, with President Dr. Bill Richards. They discussed the future of arts and entertainment and the development off SUNY's curriculum. Any thoughts or comments? Let us know!
