WinkIt and TMP Studios

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

I’m sure you’ve done it before. You were watching a great movie, probably one of ours, and you saw something you really liked. It might have been an outfit, an accessory, or maybe even a tool or gadget. How can you find it to buy? Before you would have to freeze the movie and go online and see if you could find it somewhere. Well not anymore. Now you can WinkIt!

TMP Studios is proud to announce that we have licensed our films A Christmas Snow and The Lamp to be used on WinkIt, a startup company based out of MN that is taking all the legwork out of finding those cool items in movies that you want.

For example if you visit the A Christmas Snow page on WinkIt here: ACS on WinkIt you can see the different scenes from the movie and then see which items you can buy from WinkIt that are in those scenes. You could get Kathleen’s (Catherine Mary Stewart’s) jacket or the jewelry she’s wearing. Maybe you want Sam’s (Muse Watson’s) shirt or vest, you can get them.

You can also see The Lamp page here: The Lamp on WinkIt and check out all the different items from The Lamp that the WinkIt team has found or created. Perhaps you really like an outfit that Lisa (Meredith Salenger) or Stanley (Jason London) had or maybe you’re feeling more like you want Charles’ (Louis Gossett Jr’s) bow tie.

It’s a very cool idea and we are proud to be working with them at the beginning and we can’t wait to see how far WinkIt goes. Be sure to tell your friends and family about them too as they are just starting out and they could use some TMP Studios fan support. Because we all know that TMP Studios fans are the best fans out there.

2011 – Just Believe…

Friday, December 30th, 2011

What a year 2011 has been! We are so thankful to all of our friends and fans. If not for your support we couldn’t keep making family friendly inspirational movies, plays and more. Thank You!

The Lamp

The year started off with post production on our third feature film, The Lamp which we shot at the end of 2010 and stars Jason London, Meredith Salenger, L Scott Caldwell, Sarah Brown, Cameron ten Napel with Muse Watson and Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr. The Lamp is based on the novel by bestselling author Jim Stovall and we finished the film in the spring of 2011. After that, we held charitable screenings over the summer and fall and raised thousands of dollars for some great causes all around the country including the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oklahoma.

The Lamp was released on iTunes, VUDU, Amazon Instant Video and others in the fall to great reviews. It then hit many stores nationwide in September and October and the positive reviews kept pouring in. We heard from people all over the country who were inspired by the message of “Just Believe…” and others who had lost a loved one and were touched positively with a hope for the future. We are so grateful to be able to make films that touch people like this in such a positive way and your support is what makes it all possible.

The Lamp finally was released on Netflix streaming in December and over 28,000 people have already rated it with an average of 4 stars, wow! As we go into 2012 we are so excited to be nominated for 3 different awards at the Trail Dance Film Festival in January and we are looking forward to more stores carrying the DVD throughout the year.

A Christmas Snow

It’s amazing to think that two years ago at this time we were in pre-production on A Christmas Snow and now two years later we have sold DVDs all over the world, had it broadcast all over the world and numerous times here in the states. What an amazing experience it has been for us with our second film that has now been blessing people for two Christmas seasons. Just as we have heard wonderful things about people being impacted by The Lamp the message of forgiveness in A Christmas Snow has had a similar effect on people as well. We are always so excited to hear about people who have let go of years of bitterness and reconciled with family and friends after seeing the film. That is success to us! Thank you for making that possible.

A Christmas Snow Live!

While just two years ago we were getting ready to film A Christmas Snow, it was just one year ago that we were thinking about turning the story into a live stage play with the same stars from the film and we did it! A Christmas Snow Live! was an incredible experience as the actors and writer/director Tracy J Trost brought the story to life on stage in a powerful new way. Thousands of people were touched by this heartwarming play and called it “life changing” and “a must see show for the entire family”. I know as I stood in the atrium after a performance I was moved to hear the audience talking about how the play touched them and seeing grown men brought to tears by this story is something I will never forget. Once again this is only possible through the tireless support of our friends and fans, thank you!

What’s Next?

While 2011 was truly an exciting and busy year, we are excited to get going on 2012. With so many possibilities and opportunities for us at TMP Studios we can’t wait to get started. Take a sneak peek at what we have coming up here: 2012 – Sneak Peek

Thank you once again for all your support and from all of us at TMP Studios, have a Happy New Year!

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

That’s right the TMP Branson Crew has caravanned their way up to the Starlite Theatre to begin the complete set-up of A Christmas Snow Live. It is a dream that has been long awaited. The lights are getting set, the stage is being decorated, the speakers are being tweaked, the vision is coming to pass.

There is a crew of about 8 people that are putting in many hours to make sure the show is in tip -top shape for opening night. They will be there for another week and a half prepping before the big move. We are so thankful for such a talented team. Keep checking in for highlights of the Branson Crew in INsiders to come.

2010 A Year in Review

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Tyler Roberds (Paul Jump) and Fiawna Forte (Jess Reagan) looking for a clue in our film FIND ME

What a Difference a Year Makes -

It’s amazing to look back as we come to the close of 2010. Just 12 short months ago our first feature film (and only one at that time) FIND ME was just beginning to show up sporadically in faith based bookstores around the country. We had shot it in November of 2008 in just 9 days and on a shoestring budget, it was an incredible experience and with it’s success at film festivals around the country it has proven to be a great first film for us.

A Christmas Snow -

This time last year we were also in the middle of casting for our second feature film, A Christmas Snow which was going to be shot in February of 2010. We had conducted an online casting call and found many great talents, in fact the part of Claude (Rich Swingle) was cast through our online casting call, and he has proved to be a great benefit in getting the word out about the film. We were also honored to have Muse Watson (NCIS), Catherine Mary Stewart (Weekend at Bernie’s), Anthony Tyler Quinn (Boy Meets World), and Cameron ten Napel (Barney and Friends) join the picture as well.

We had 18 days to shoot A Christmas Snow and although the budget was much bigger for us, in terms of Hollywood films and other Indie features we were still shooting with a micro budget. The cast and crew were great and the film has performed well at festivals and has enjoyed exposure at more than 200 screenings around the country, as well as both national and international TV airings. Our distributor, Destiny Image Films helped make it one of the best selling Christmas movies at numerous national chains. It was exciting to hear from our more than 5,000 fans on facebook that A Christmas Snow had become their new Christmas tradition and we are eternally grateful for that as well as the numerous emails and messages we have received from those whose lives have been forever changed from this powerful story of forgiveness and reconciliation. That is always our true measure of success.

The A Christmas Snow project also market award winning writer/director Tracy J Trost’s first foray into the world of authorship with his first book Restored – 11 Gifts for a Complete Life and it’s written as Sam’s Journal and follows him from a year before the star of A Christmas Snow all the way through the film. If you haven’t read it yet, you’ll want to head to your nearest bookstore and ask for it. Those who have read it after watching the film have become huge fans.

We also released a Soundtrack that contained songs from the film, songs inspired by the film, and remixed Christmas classics. Produced by Bryan Popin of Little Boy Wonder Music in Nashville and boasting such artists as Chris Kirkpatrick (NSYNC), Martha Munizzi (Top Billboard Artist), Kelly Morrison (wrote & sang the song Legacy for The Ultimate Gift) Erica Lane, and up and comers: Jason Eustice, Casii Stephan, & Alicia Larson the album is a wonderful collection that will be cherished for years to come.

Raw Talent Screenplay Contest -

After filming A Christmas Snow and while we got it ready for the retail market, we held a contest for screenwriters called the Raw Talent Screenplay Contest and we awarded a $10,000 prize to Jason Parker for his original script, Matter of Life. If you haven’t seen the video where director Tracy J Trost and myself let Jason know he won you still can at: www.rawtalentcontest.com it’s so fun to see and many have told us it brought a tear to their eye.

The Lamp -

Then after the Raw Talent Screenplay Contest writer/director Tracy J Trost went to work on our third feature film The Lamp. Tracy started with the premise from best-selling author Jim Stovall’s book by the same name and wrote a moving tale of love and overcoming loss that is shaping up to be our best film yet. As with A Christmas Snow, Jim Stovall will be writing a novel based on the story in the film and Tracy will be writing a companion book, this time called Just Believe…

All of us at Trost Moving Pictures and the Narrative Television Network are excited at the opportunities The Lamp is bringing to affect others, touch lives, and help charities and organizations as well. Touching on the subjects of losing a child, foster care, adoption, and canine therapy and starring Jason London, Meredith Salenger, L Scott Caldwell, Sarah Brown, Cameron ten Napel, Muse Watson, and Louis Gossett Jr its shaping up to be a powerful story that will affect lives for years to come.

The Best is Yet to Come -

As you can see it’s been a busy year and 2011 is looking to be just as busy with many exciting projects in the works for Trost Moving Pictures and our good friends at the Narrative Television Network and Destiny Image Films. There are two projects in particular that I am extremely excited about, but that’s a story for another day. Thank you so much for your support in 2010 and we hope to continue to be your source for great family friendly stories and projects in 2011. Without the support of friends, family, and fans like you this is all possible.

With Great Hope for 2011,

Joe Jestus

A CHRISTMAS SNOW Synopsis:
For Kathleen, (Catherine Mary Stewart) Christmas has always been an unwelcome reminder of her father’s abandonment almost 30 years ago. Although she has tried to forget her past, it has not forgotten her, and in the days leading up to Christmas an unforgiving blizzard traps her in her own home with two unlikely roommates. Sam (Muse Watson), a gentle older man Kathleen took in for the night and Lucy (Cameron ten Napel), the daughter of her soon to be fiancé (Anthony Tyler Quinn) bring her face to face with the hurts of her past.  Will she be able to let go and grab hold of a life changing forgiveness or will she continue to be haunted by the pain of the past?
