Trost Moving Pictures To Give Audiences Another Way To Interact and Connect With Their Films Partners With WinkIt the Future of Independent Movie Sourcing and Online Shopping

Tulsa, OK ~ Following the growing trend of independent filmmakers finding new ways to connect with their audiences, award-winning director Tracy J Trost and company have partnered with WinkIt, a cutting edge startup designed to source product for their films, then make it available to the public to buy. If you’ve ever seen something in one of Trost’s films that you wish you had, now you can. Each Trost Moving Pictures’ movie has identified items listed on WinkIt – the famous watch that Sam (Muse Watson) shares or the handbag that Kathleen (Catherine Mary Stewart) uses in the award-winning inspirational film A Christmas Snow can now be yours. Trost Moving Pictures is the first Independent studio to partner with WinkIt.

Juli Baecker, CEO and Founder of WinkIt explains, “We’ve all done it. You’re sitting there watching a movie and you see an outfit, piece of jewelry, or something else that you would love to own. So you look on line, but can never find exactly the right one. Well, now with WinkIt you can.”

WinkItNow.com is easy to use. Click on your favorite Trost film, shop by scene, search by item, pick your must have items then buy. It’s that simple. The first two films available to purchase items from are Trost Moving Pictures’ award-winning A Christmas Snow and The Lamp.

Award-winning writer and director Tracy J Trost had this to say about the partnership with WinkIt, “My first goal as a filmmaker is to create stories that impact people’s lives in a positive way. But as an independent filmmaker, creating new and unique ways for audiences to interact with my films and finding ways to keep our costs low while creating additional revenue streams is key for me to be able to continue succeeding at my first goal. WinkIt helps us accomplish all of these objectives.”

In addition to the two films currently on WinkItNow.com, Trost Moving Pictures and WinkIt are working on sourcing items for Trost Moving Pictures’ next two films that are set to go into production this year and the two companies couldn’t be happier to be at the forefront of what will soon be an industry standard for filmmakers and audiences alike.

Nine Projects for 2012

Friday, March 9th, 2012
Just Believe

With 9 Projects, We Definitely Believe!

Nine projects including family movies, inspirational books, live events that will change your life, a powerful play on forgiveness, and more is what we have in store for our Trost Moving Pictures family and friends this year. Are you ready?

At Trost Moving Pictures we believe in pushing ourselves and facing our fears, after all we were founded by director Tracy J Trost on a dare to follow his dreams. (You can read that story here.) So this week when I posted that we were working on 6 projects over on our Facebook page, that seemed crazy.

Then I had to update it because I had forgotten one and it looked like we had 7 projects on the stove here and that seemed even crazier. So I guess now that I remembered two more we must be certifiably insane with 9 projects here in the works. As all our fans suggested, we’re doing our best to remember to relax.

So what are all of these projects we are working on? Well, we can’t tell you about all of them, but we can tell you about most of them.

Books

Let’s start with the book director Tracy J Trost is working on. As he mentioned in The Successful Life Mindset Episode 26 he’s had an idea for a 30 day guide to changing your life that focuses on the steps he used to accomplish his dream of becoming a director. He’s currently writing the book now and hopefully we’ll have more info soon. Be sure to follow Tracy on Facebook and Twitter to get updates from him on this and other projects throughout the week.That’s one!

Live Events

Next, let’s look at our live events. In just about a month the Trost Moving Pictures crew is heading to New York City to work with the Center for Creative Media and it’s leader Doug Rittenhouse to broadcast an Acquire the Fire event on God.tv to over 200 countries around the world. The great thing about this event is we bring a crew of industry professionals and they work alongside young kids learning the trade from the Center for Creative Media who are getting hands on training in television broadcast. It’s definitely an adventure.

The next live event we are working on is the One Nation One Day event with Dominic Russo ministries for July 2013. Tracy talked about this event a little bit in the Director’s Diary 2012 Episode 9 and you can learn more about it at www.OneNationOneDay.com. It’s a monumental event and is going to definitely push us all past our comfort zones, but it could has a huge potential to impact people’s lives positively and as you know, that’s what we are all about here at Trost Moving Pictures.

The final live event we are working on is still in the development stage but we are going to Branson next week to meet with some more people about moving it forward and hopefully we’ll be able to share more with you soon. That’s 2 – 4!

Family Movies

Now lets move on to our inspirational family friendly movie projects. As most of you know we are working on a project called Then & Now, which is a romantic comedy based on a book that is yet to be published by bestselling author Jim Stovall. This is a pretty big project and we are moving forward with hopes to get it into production this year or next year. Tracy talks about in the Director’s Diary 2012 Episode 2.

Our next film project, Tracy mentioned in the Director’s Diary 2012 Episode 8 when he talked about his meeting with New York Times bestselling author Andy Andrews. This project is based on Andy’s book The Lost Choice and we are just in the early stages on this one which is sure to be one of the biggest projects Trost Moving Pictures has taken on yet. If you haven’t read Andy’s book The Lost Choice yet, you should get it today so you can see what we’re looking at. It’s on Amazon here The Lost Choice.

The next two family movie projects we are working on are still in the development stage and we can’t share too much about them, but one of them could go into production this year still. That one has to do with adoption again and I am personally really excited about the project and the good that it can be used for. The other project will take some time to develop and Tracy is very excited about this one as well. I can tell you that both of these stories are based on real life events. So that’s 5-8!

The Stage

The final project that we are working on is of course A Christmas Snow Live! which is coming back to the Starlite Theatre for a second season starting November 1st. If you haven’t checked out A Christmas Snow Live! on Facebook you can here ACS Live! on Facebook. Once there you can see the calendar for 2012 and get tickets. This inspirational story has touched so many lives, we can’t wait to hear the great stories that come from this powerful message of forgiveness once again.

Also, we are working on a way for you to officially be a supporter of A Christmas Snow Live! so that you can have a hand in making that impact on people’s lives too! That’s 9!

Wow, nine projects, and that doesn’t include any other projects that spring up in relation to these projects like companion books and things like that. It also doesn’t include The Successful Life Mindset podcast either, that Tracy does on a weekly basis. If you aren’t listening to this podcast, you are really missing out on some amazing discussions with Cliff and Tracy about how to attain true success in life and get inspired. As you can see, we have a lot going on and your prayers and support is greatly appreciated by us all at Trost Moving Pictures.

With hope that you live your life to its greatest potential,

Joe Jestus – PMD at Trost Moving Pictures

ACS Live! Let the Building Begin

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Hey Insiders! It’s been a while, it feels great to be back.  I was talking with our Producer, Jason Stafford about the timing of the set building for ACS Live!. Turns out, they moved into a space this week and are working on the beginning stages of the set. With all this construction, it’s hard to keep everything straight. The scenes are sketched out, it’s just time to make those drawings a reality. We have very talented guys working hard to make sure all the details are paid attention to, and all of the scenes look just right.
So many things going on at TMP, we’re bursting at the seams! But that’s ok with us! It gives us more opportunities to reach people and get our movies and projects out there. Be prepared for so much more news in the future. Want to see an exclusive pic of the building process? Click here to sign up for our INsider and view the August 4th Edition.
