"VCP Is Positioning Itself to Be a Serious Contender in the Film Industry, NY Investment Firm Offers 100 Million Dollar Equity Line and to Take VCP Public" -- Chad A. Verdi

POINT ROBERTS, WA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) - releases the following Q&A interview with featured up and coming entertainment company, Verdi Corrente Productions and its Managing Partner and Producer; Chad A. Verdi.

Can you give us some background on Verdi Corrente Productions?

A: Managing Partner and Producer; Chad A. Verdi

VCP was founded in 2009 as a partnership between me an established Rhode Island businessman and award-winning director/producer Michael Corrente. Verdi Corrente Productions (VCP) is an independent and fully-funded media production company based in New York City and RI. We currently have several movies in the pipeline and just finished our first feature film Inkubus. VCP is positioning itself to be a serious contender in the film industry.

For a new company in the entertainment industry, you have attracted some very impressive names and talent to your team. Can you give our readers some examples of the range of talent in your portfolio of movies, Inkubus, Loosies, Infected and Paz? 

A: Managing Partner and Producer; Chad A. Verdi

We are extremely excited about the caliber of talent on board.

VCP has signed some great Hollywood actors to star in our movies; names including Robert Englund (Freddy vs. Jason / A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child / Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare / Inkubus), Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs / Kill Bill: Vol. 1 / Kill Bill: Vol. 2 / Loosies / Infected), Peter Facinelli (Twilight / New Moon / The Scorpion King / Loosies), Vincent Gallo (Buffalo '66 / The Brown Bunny / Tetro/ Loosies), Joe Pantoliano (Memento / The Matrix / The Fugitive/ Loosies), Jaimie Alexander (Thor / Rest Stop / Hallowed Ground / Loosies / The Other Side) William Forsythe, (The Rock / Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo / Raising Arizona / Inkubus) Christy Carlson Romano (Guiding Light / The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold / The Even Stevens Movie / Loosies) Jonathan Silverman, (Weekend at Bernie's / 12:01 / Brighton Beach Memoirs / Inkubus) Joey Fatone ( My Big Fat Greek Wedding / n sync / Inkubus) Michelle Ray Smith (Salt / Inkubus) Tom DeNucci (Brotherhood / Inkubus / Loosies / Infected) and my daughter Sera Verdi (Inkubus / Loosies / Infected).

I am thrilled that VCP has just signed Michael Madsen, who is best known for his work with director Quentin Tarantino, to its next horror film, "Infected" that will begin shooting in Oct of 2010. It was written by Glenn Ciano & Robert Rotondo Jr. and Glenn Ciano will direct. Actor Tom DeNucci (Brotherhood, Inkubus) will be paying along side of Madsen.

To come out of the shoot as a new film company with a list of names we have signed should turn some heads in Hollywood!

Can you tell us what stage the company is at right now and what can audiences expect to see from the company?

A: Managing Partner and Producer; Chad A. Verdi

VCP just finished its first feature, a horror film entitled "Inkubus," starring Robert Englund. Over the next eighteen months, VCP will produce five more features, starting with "Loosies," the tale of a New York pick pocket that begins filming July 15th 2010, and culminating with "Paz." It's the real life comeback story of Vinny Pazienza, the Rhode Island boxer, who at the height of his career, broke his neck and was told he may never walk again and his boxing days were over for good. This story is what many feel, is the greatest comeback in sports history, as he went on to defied all odds and became a world champion four more times.

In terms of the future funding of the company, have any companies or groups approached you about going public, or is this something you are considering?

A: Managing Partner and Producer; Chad A. Verdi

Yes... Several companies have approached us. We were recently offered a public shell and a $100 million dollar equity line by a NY firm to fund our movies going forward, but we want to prove the business model prior to moving forward in the public arena. VCP's approach is much different than a normal production company. First, we are self funded and have lots of great material to work with. This is what attracts the actors and brings them to the table. Then we offer much bigger back end deals to the actors in lieu of huge upfront fees that they are used to. This puts more dollars on the screen and gives everyone a vested interest in making the best movie possible.

In closing, what would you like to add about your company and team?

A: Managing Partner and Producer; Chad A. Verdi

With over 25 years of film and business experience, VCP brings a tremendous amount of talent and credibility to the industry, and I think we are well on our way to becoming a go-to production house for independent film.

I have one of the most talented partners in the entertaining industry, in Michael Corrente. Corrente is the acclaimed director/producer responsible for such films as American Buffalo, Outside Providence, A Shot at Glory, Brooklyn Rules, The Door in the Floor and Federal Hill. He knows the ins and outs of the entertainment world better they anyone and he is a huge reason why I got into this business.

We intend to make our mark in the film industry with a team of great talent; without the big budgets.
