Internet distributor IndiePix has entered a production pact with L.A. production company Lucky Hat Entertainment to produce films, the companies announced. Lucky Hat will join IndiePix as Executive Producer on two films--'P-Star Rising' and 'Entre Nos' - premiering at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. The parties plan to jointly develop and produce two more films per year through 2011.
Founded by Stephen Bannatyne and Marcia Carver, Lucky Hat has been involved with a number of independent films including "The Order of Myths," which won the LaCoste Truer Than Fiction Award at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards and "Goodbye Solo," currently in theaters.
"With Lucky Hat's proven track-record and impressive experience in the film and production industry, they will play a pivotal role in IndiePix Studios titles from development through their final stages of production and distribution," commented IndiePix's president Bob Alexander in a statement. "We are delighted with the success of our IndiePix Studios division and are proud and excited about how its first film slate will be received. This co-production agreement with Lucky Hat underpins our commitment to continue developing this division as we look towards announcing our second release slate later this year."
