CRACKLE ANNOUNCES THE PREMIERE OF ORIGINAL HORROR FILM, “THE CLEARING,” LAUNCHING JUNE 4

The zombie thriller joins the free streaming platform’s growing original and exclusive content library

Los Angeles, CA (May 21, 2020) – Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company and one of the largest operators of streaming advertising-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) networks, announced today the premiere of original action horror film The Clearing on June 4th.

As one of the only AVODs continually adding original and exclusive programming that uplifts, entertains, and inspires audiences, Crackle adds The Clearing alongside original and exclusive titles that can only be found only on Crackle, including Crown Vic, On Point, ’85: The Greatest Team in Football History, Wonders of the Sea, Yelawolf: A Slumerican Life, and Going From Broke.

The movie, only available on Crackle beginning June 4th, stars Liam McIntyre (“Spartacus”) as a father who takes his daughter, played by Aundrea Smith (“Diary of a Future President”), on a weekend camping trip during a mysterious disease outbreak. The film also stars Sydelle Noel (“G.L.O.W.”) and Steven Swadling (“Kickboxer”).

Set at the dawn of a zombie apocalypse, The Clearing unfolds amid tensions between Tom (McIntyre) and his wife (Sydelle Noel) over his parental responsibilities and the time he spends with his young daughter Mira (Smith). Tom takes Mira on a camping trip, only to discover the impending disaster that leaves the pair trapped in a clearing in the woods, fighting to make it out alive.

Making his feature directorial debut with The Clearing, writer-director David Matalon’s goal was to pay homage to beloved zombie tropes while blazing his own way with imaginative screenwriting and innovative filmmaking techniques. “I couldn’t be more excited for The Clearing to have its premiere on Crackle and I’m grateful for their passion and enthusiasm for our movie,” said Matalon. “I’m thrilled to take viewers on this action-packed ride.”

“For the segment of our audience that loves zombie movies, The Clearing follows in the footsteps of our other horror offerings, such as Office Uprising and the Dead Rising film series,” said Philippe Guelton, President of Crackle Plus. “This film will deliver an action-packed distraction that our fans are craving right now.”

The film was acquired by Screen Media Ventures, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment company and the supplier of exclusive and original content for Crackle Plus. Seth Needle, SVP of Worldwide Acquisitions at Screen Media Ventures, negotiated the deal on behalf of Crackle Plus.

As a partner exclusive, the film will debut on May 25 on the Crackle Channel on Amazon Fire TV devices, available for early access in 34 million U.S. homes.

Crackle Announces Launch of Timely Romantic Comedy “Cooped Up”





Crackle Announces Launch of Timely Romantic Comedy “Cooped Up”

Crackle Announces Launch of Timely Romantic Comedy COOPED UP
Prophetic Comedy about living under quarantine launches as a Crackle Exclusive on May 14th
New York, NY – May 7, 2020 – Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company and one of the largest operators of streaming advertising-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) networks, today announced the upcoming launch of the Australian romantic comedy Cooped Up. Starring Charles Cottier (“Home and Away”) as a bitter semi-professional wrestler who must live in quarantine after coming into contact with a potentially fatal coronavirus, the film is directed and produced by Kane Guglielmi. It also stars Kathryn Beck (“Neighbours”), Adam Demos (“unREAL”) and Stephen Peacocke (“Home and Away”). Cooped Up launches exclusively on Crackle on May 14th.

After coming into contact with a potentially fatal coronavirus, Jake (played by Cottier) is forced to isolate himself in his childhood home for 21 days, with his only connection to the outside world being the female medic who checks on his symptoms daily.

Cooped Up was produced in Australia in 2016, well before the recent COVID-19 pandemic. The idea for the quirky comedy was born out of the budgetary constraints of the filmmaker and producer, Kane Guglielmi, who turned a challenge into an opportunity to produce an original, yet affordably contained, feature film. After hearing about rare situations where viruses have forced people into home quarantines, he, and writer John Ratchford, decided to use the seemingly far-fetched premise as the basis for their film. Guglielmi now lives in Italy and is currently under quarantine himself.

“When I made Cooped Up, I never dreamt its concept would become a reality for millions worldwide. During this time, my hope is that it becomes a feel-good distraction for everyone in need of a little light-heartedness. I’m grateful to Crackle for partnering with me to premiere this personal film to their U.S. audience,” said Guglielmi.

President of Crackle Plus, Philippe Guelton said, “In a time when so many are in lockdown as a result of the global pandemic, Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and the Crackle team keep looking for exclusive programming that entertains and lifts people up. We are excited to bring this timely comedy to our US audience.”

Seth Needle, SVP of Worldwide Acquisitions at Screen Media Ventures, negotiated the deal on behalf of Crackle Plus with Kane Guglielmi via his China Shop Productions.

Crackle is available on Amazon FireTV, RokuTV and devices, Apple TV, most Smart TVs (Samsung, LG, Vizio), Gaming Consoles (PS4 and XBoxOne), on iOS and Android mobile devices and on desktop at Crackle.com.

ABOUT KANE GUGLIELMI
Emerging filmmaker Kane Guglielmi has always taken a bold approach when it comes to his career. Guglielmi, who grew up in Mt Riverview, Australia, taught himself how to edit film at an early age. He then expanded his skillset into camera operation, becoming the youngest Steadicam operator in the world in 2006, before graduating to cinematography, and eventually directing and producing. At 23, Guglielmi directed five episodes of the long-running Australian soap opera, Home and Away, earning him the title of youngest director in the history of commercial network dramas in Australia. During this time, he also started his own successful commercial production company that serviced the top agencies in Sydney with clients including Tourism Australia, McDonald’s, Sony PlayStation, Paypal, Evian, and more. In 2009, Guglielmi directed, financed and produced the short film, Dear Diary, an unconventional, dark comedy about a husband and wife trying to secretly orchestrate each other’s deaths.

Guglielmi also wrote, directed and produced the 2018 comedy short, The Confession, a story about truth and happy endings, that Funny or Die featured and praised as being “exquisitely put together.” In 2016, he made his feature length directorial debut with Cooped Up, also serving as the producer and financier. In order to fund the project, Guglielmi, who was married, with a child on the way, sold his own home in Sydney to make the film a reality. This quirky romantic comedy, follows a bitter semi-professional wrestler (Charles Cottier) who, after coming into contact with a deadly coronavirus, is quarantined to his family home for 21 days, with his only connection to the outside world being the female medic (Kathryn Beck) who checks on his symptoms daily. The film premiered in Australia to positive reviews and was recently acquired by Screen Media Ventures and is set for a May 14th launch in the U.S. on Sony’s Crackle Plus.
