VETERANS DAY, 2013 -- Today, AnchorBay Films announced that MURPH: The Protector will be available for purchase on Blu-ray™, DVD, and digital download on January 7, 2014 and ALSO that Murph has qualified for this season's Academy Award® voting categories of Best Feature Documentary, Best Original Song, Best Original Score, and Best Film Editing.
Fans of the Interactive Pixel Company may recall that our own Todd Free was Co-Producer, Director of Photography, and Film Editor for Murph. And that means, yes, Todd Free is "under consideration" for the Oscar™ for Best Film Editing of a motion picture. And that is pretty cool.
Earlier today, Free said, "It's an awesome Veteran's Day announcement. Murph was a a true hero who reminds us of the sacrifice all of our veterans have made, and all of our soldiers are making."
For those of you who are unaware about Murph The Protector, the documentary reveals the remarkable life of “Murph,” a son, brother, neighbor and warrior who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country and became a true American hero. This is his story and legacy. The film was written, directed and produced by Scott Mactavish and debuted theatrically in March 2013 during Medal of Honor week.
We are super excited about this news, about this film release, about Mactavish Pictures, and about the OSCARS, and we hope you are too. Stayed tuned for a NEW trailer for the film too. It's ALL coming soon.
