HONOLULU, November 21, 2012 — Impact Future Media, a company that specializes in the development, production and marketing of intellectual property for the entertainment industry today made its debut. Founded by industry veterans, Impact Future Media's mission is to bring creative ideas and fledgling entertainment properties to life. As part of the company launch announcement the team at Impact Future Media unveiled three new entertainment properties that are in the works; High on Tuna (television series), Boston George's Smuggler (game) and Flatrock (animated series).
"We are very excited about working with new and emerging independent intellectual properties for the entertainment industry," stated François Garcia, CEO of Impact Future Media. "We already have three exciting properties that are in the early stages of development, but we are always looking for more creative entrepreneurs and ideas to work with."
First on the production schedule is High on Tuna, a television series based on the latest novel written by "Boston George" Jung. A prequel to the 2001 hit movie Blow, starring Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, High on Tuna is filled with so much action, risk and surreal adventure that anyone not familiar with the story would easily assume it is fiction.
Each episode of High on Tuna follows the details of Jung's biography as it happened. The story begins when Jung moves from Boston to California, where he plans to get a degree in advertising, but plans quickly change as he makes his first foray into drug dealing and smuggling by selling Marijuana. Jung later becomes a major player in the cocaine trade in the U.S. as part of the Medellin Cartel, which was responsible for up to 89 percent of the cocaine smuggled into the United States in the 1970s and 1980s.
"A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind," stated Boston George Jung. "Without the dream there is no destiny. Leave all impossibilities at the door, and allow the winds of destiny to blow!"
Next on the drawing board for Impact Future Media is Boston George's Smuggler, an interactive entertainment property that is all about distribution and control, and intercepting or moving units between points and ports while overcoming numerous obstacles to complete the mission. Although controversial in nature, the goal of developing this game is to spark the public's thought processes and encourage discussion on illegal drugs, money, greed, and how they affect the world, the economy and our lives. Impact Future Media is currently looking for a game development studio for the concept.
In addition to the properties above, Impact Future Media is also working to develop and produce Flatrock, an animated series by Ian Federov, which offers a fresh and lighthearted look at prison life from the inmate's perspective. It's about four likeable losers and their adventures while doing time. Breaking every prison rule and convict code alike, Flatrock, Jake, 8-Ball and Chapo are at odds with everyone. They're out of luck with literally no place to go.
