Today, Severin Films uncaged its formal video announcement of its acquisition of Birdemic: Shock and Terror, which was produced by a rising young director and Birdemic backer; Portland’s own Bobby Hacker. “Portland, Oregon has long been one of my favorite tourist destinations. I rarely pass a calendar year without once walking its storied section of the Lewis & Clark trail. Its robust, fecund environment both inspires and invigorates. So no wonder Portland has produced a filmmaker with a vigor to match in one Robert Danville Hacker,” says Severin COO Carl Daft. In other news, Severin’s new partnership with publicity giant Cornerstone Promotion was sealed for all time when Cornerstone successfully buzzed various media giants with Severin’s epic Birdemic press release. Cornerstone will be aiding Severin in Birdemic’s rollout screenings in Los Angeles and Austin.
