VFILES Teams Up With Madden Brothers to Create Record Label VFILES LOUD!

September 17, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

VFILES, the global creative social-netowrking website and app, along with Joel Madden of MDDN Co., are announcing the creation of the record label VFILES LOUD!
The VFILES LOUD! partnership will offer yet another way for the VFILES community on the platform to be heard by a global audience—literally. VFILES LOUD! plans to develop and create opportunities for the artists on the VFILES platform (website and app) and the community at large. The VFILES LOUD! program—where users can submit tracks for consideration to be a part of the label and ensuing event series—will now take on an entirely new dimension.

VFILES believes that fashion and music are inseparable and can’t exist without the other. The projects and collaborations that VFILES does with the talented creative community on the VFILES platform have always involved a musical component.

“As a fan and a member of the VFILES community I’m excited about the collaboration with MDDN and VFILES and the impact we are going to be able to have on all VFILES artists. We are truly at the front of finding great new talent and bringing it to the world in the most authentic ways.”—Joel Madden, MDDN

“I have been a fan of Good Charlotte since the beginning. Joel is absolutely a brilliant songwriter and musician and understands VFIL ES in its truest sense,” says VFILES Founder Julie Anne Quay.

This year alone the LIVE AT VFILES event series has included Rae Sremmurd, Lil Yachty, Krewella, Dawn Richards, and Metro Boomin. VFILES RUNWAY has included performances by Tyga, Sophie Beem, and this season Playboi Carti along with the young band Unlocking the Truth. Jeffery (Young Thug) was a mentor for VFILES RUNWAY.

MDDN has their finger on the pulse of contemporary music, a proven track record to produce successful musical artists (including themselves), and a commitment to empowering youth—all of which align with the VFILES mission. Their Culver City, L.A studio has already worked with a number of young artists—Waterparks, Groves, Potty Mouth—and established artists like Jessie J.

These successful collaborations, along with the brother’s own success in the music industry as Good Charlotte, promise to launch the career of any young artist deserving discovery.
About VFILES
VFILES is a creative-focused social networking website and app that connects the global youth community. Users can connect, discover, collaborate, and be a part of what’s next. VFILES enables and encourages collaboration between its members in design, fashion, art, music, and more. VFILES is a movement—join us.

Randall Park, Hasan Minaj, Malcolm D. Lee and Masi Oka Also Set to Judge Annual Festival That Celebrates Diverse Stories While Finding the Next Generation of Storytellers

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – September 13, 2016 – As part of the company’s ongoing initiatives to find new voices, the NBCUniversal SHORT FILM FESTIVAL unveiled the judging panel for its 11th annual festival. The diverse group of award-winning directors, writers, producers and actors include director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6, Star Trek Beyond), producer Will Packer (Ride Along series, Straight Outta Compton), writer-producer Tracey Wigfield (The Mindy Project, creator and showrunner of NBC’s upcoming Great News), Marlon Wayans (NBC’s upcoming Marlon), Masi Oka (Heroes, Hawaii Five-0) and writer-director Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man, Barbershop: The Next Cut) as well as festival alumni Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat, Trainwreck) and Hasan Minaj (The Daily Show).

“Our judging panel is comprised of creatives and festival alumni who enrich film and television with diverse stories and unique perspectives,” says Karen Horne, SVP of Talent Development & Inclusion, NBC Entertainment. “I’m proud that our SHORT FILM FESTIVAL along with our other NBCUniversal Talent Infusion Programs continue to discover and recognize talented storytellers with new and original voices.”

Founded in 2006, the NBCUniversal SHORT FILM FESTIVAL is the first and only film festival created and run by an entertainment studio with the mission of discovering diverse voices both in front and behind the camera. This celebrated annual initiative, known for introducing up and coming directors, writers, producers and actors to top industry tastemakers, also awards prizes ranging from holding deals and development meetings at NBCUniversal to monetary grants. The bi-coastal festival is part of the robust NBCUniversal Talent Infusion Programs (NBCUNI TIPS) that promote and encourage people of diverse backgrounds to become the next generation of storytellers.

This year’s festival will culminate with a finale screening and award ceremony on October 19, 2016 at the Director’s Guild of America in Hollywood.

“I’m excited to return as a judge for NBCUniversal’s SHORT FILM FESTIVAL,” said director Justin Lin. “Discovering and nurturing the next generation of talent is a personal mission of mine, so I feel privileged to be amongst the first to see original and diverse stories from up and coming filmmakers. I’ve seen several festival alumni go on to present their work at Sundance and Cannes, and I expect nothing less from this year’s filmmakers.”

Last month, the festival officially kicked off in New York with two days of screenings and events for this year’s 14 semi-finalists. They received GoPro equipment packages and LumeCube kits to document their experiences at curated events that included a SAG-AFTRA-hosted champagne kick-off reception and a WGA East-sponsored round table discussion with Oscar®-nominated writer-director Shari Springer-Berman (American Splendor). The two-day program ended with screenings of the semi-finalists’ short films before audiences of industry professionals including film, network and cable executives as well as managers, agents and producers. This year’s semi-finalists are:
