  • (1888PressRelease) November 14, 2014 - EXCLUSIVE: Canadian based film & music supervision company AMG and its executive team of multi-platinum awarded record producer Mark Berry and Rob "Kelo" Hendricks snags its first homegrown production for their fledgling film division with a premium acquisition.

    Its latest production in an international partnership with Rap-a-Lot Records in Houston, Texas gives them Executive Producer status and worldwide acquisition rights across all platforms to the feature length concert film, DRAKE:HOMECOMING. AMG's longstanding relationship with international licensing agents and contacts will pool expertise and resources on a global basis.

    DRAKE:HOMECOMING, the live sold out concert filmed at Toronto's Sound Academy in 2009 prior to Drake signing with Little Wayne's Young Money imprint through Cash Money/Universal, was believed lost and destroyed. After its recent re-discovery, the project was brought to the attention of famed record producer Mark Berry who had professional analysis of the data completed. Mark then enlisted the services of longtime friend and AMG business affairs attorney Paul D. Schindler (Katy Perry, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez) at Greenberg Traurig in NYC to cultivate deals.

    Additional production and footage brought to the table by AMG included the organizing of interviews with James Prince and his son Jas Prince, the latter credited with the actual discovery of Drake and bringing him to the attention of Little Wayne who went on to sign the global superstar to his Young Money imprint. The soundtrack includes the international smashes, "Best I Ever Had" & "Successful".

    The first order of business was securing an international release for the outstanding audio soundtrack and DVD rights through Rap-a-Lot Records based out of Houston, Texas in its deal with SONY/RED. "James Prince, CEO of Rap-a-Lot and Anzel Jennings, Co-Producer of DRAKE:HOMECOMING have been outstanding partners in wanting the quality of the project maintained throughout all levels" states AMG Chairman Berry.

    Rob "Kelo" Hendricks, EVP Business Affairs at AMG added "It goes without saying that this film is essential for Drake fans, particularly given the amount of time spent on highlights of how he was discovered and the climb up. Mark and I are honored at being a part of this film and in partnership with James and Anzel at Rap-a-Lot as Drake is more than just an artist with 17M Twitter followers. He's a planet and his planet is populated by millions of devoted fans. We are set to deliver a 5 star project" he said.

    Upcoming DRAKE:HOMECOMING announcements include a worldwide theatrical release with premium theatre chains globally along with several major international broadcast deals. Berry adds, "We couldn't ask for a better team of international partners for the theatrical and broadcast deals being concluded right now. In conjunction with Rap-a-Lot we are looking at an early 2015 for the international release of all windows across multiple platforms".
