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.

MovieMaker Magazine and Tracy J Trost

Monday, January 30th, 2012

In case you missed it, last September our very own award-winning director Tracy J Trost did an interview with MovieMaker Magazine about The Lamp. We’ve posted a section below and you can read the whole interview by clicking the link below.

Samantha Husik (MM): What inspired you to adapt Jim Stovall’s book, The Lamp, into a film? What about the book seemed particularly cinematic?

Tracy Trost (TT): When Jim shared The Lamp with me, I immediately got the concept of the book. I knew it was a story that many people could relate to and connect with. Of course with any adaptation from book to movie, there were sub-plots and supporting characters that needed to be added. I remember after I read the book, on a flight from Dallas to Hawaii, I wrote an eight-page treatment of my ideas for additions and changes to make to the story entertaining to viewers. I sent them to Jim and he loved them. We work very well together.
