We would all like to wish you all the very best for the new year. It is going to be a big one for us as we are expanding and we will be offering our clients some big opportunities. Stay tuned for some announcements.
So now we farwell 2010. It has been a big year for us here at Majestic Film. After finishing the Australian Tour by ANGELS from Croatia, the year began with months in the studio cutting the film ‘IN THE FLESH’ featuring the most popular and No. 1 hit band from Sweden, The Poodles. We were very proud of the end result and couriered the film to Sweden… It did not take long to secure a deal with Frontiers taking out the honours. The release in November followed with rave reviews and accolades for Director Steve Ravic! ‘Superbly directed by Aussie Steve Ravic and All in all an excellent DVD, both the live material offered up & ‘The Rockumentary’ on the band are very, very well directed & produced. An essential purchase’ said Rocktopia in the UK.
On May the 16th of 2010, we lost who I believe and many regard the greatest voice in Heavy Metal. Ronnie James Dio was an inspiration. Steve Ravic said ‘One of my greatest moments was standing up on the stage at Balingen in Germany while DIO was performing. After the show he approached me and it was the very first time I met him in person. I was standing beside Stu Marshall (ex-Dungeon) and we both uttered the words ‘THANK YOU’… Ronnie looks at us and said ‘NO, THANK YOU’. It was a golden moment and one that described exactly who Dio was. Dio has departed from this world, but he has left a legacy and songs that will keep his memory alive eternally’.
The passing of a legend and the fact that his life was taken by cancer greatly impacted on all of us here at Majestic Film. It was a loss to the entire music world but he did leave us with beautiful songs and memories!
We now head into 2011 full of excitement. The Poodles fans will be happy to know that there will be more to come this year. Follow this space for an announcement. In the meantime we can tell you that we are doing the pre-production of the film clip for the first single off their new album which will be released later this year.
Steve Ravic is also currently writing the script for his next feature film which will be produced by Majestic Film so keep posted to this site for more!
We look forward to working with you this year!
