LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 -- The Independent Film Development Corporation (OTCQB: IFLM), with a plan of operations to develop of themed resorts and sales / distribution agent for digital films, announced today that it has hired C. David Pugh as the Chief Communications Officer for the company.
Pugh joins IFLM as the company launches the Hilltop Manor Resort and Theme Park project. IFLM's Hilltop Manor is a theme resort and production studio like no other, dedicated to the edgier and more immersive forms of entertainment. Built on an existing 500 acre Catskill Mountain resort, the company is engaging some of the top Hollywood artists and designers to develop the rides and experiences of the park, all showcasing things that go bump in the night.
"I see IFLM's theme park plans as a fantastic addition to the portfolio," Pugh said. "As a parent, my child is thrilled with the prospect of a more adventurous theme park. I see it as part Excalibur or The Luxor in Las Vegas, part haunted fun house, all designed to give guests a good natured scare. Hilltop Manor will be more fun, complete with zombies, Bigfoot and alien encounters."
If it seems like there is more monster, macabre, ghost, and extraterrestrial themed content out there these days, you're not crazy -- there is. Programs like MonsterQuest or Ancient Aliens, as well as movies like the Twilight series or The Conjuring, dominate both the small screen and the big screen. Hilltop Manor Resort and Theme Park mirrors this change in the American culture.
"Mr. Pugh is a fantastic addition to the IFLM team. His presence is being felt immediately," said Chief Operating Officer Jeff Ritchie. "He is the perfect fit for IFLM and Hilltop Manor. He will complement the Hollywood creatives we will soon be bringing on board."
Prior to joining IFLM, Mr. Pugh founded Card Logic Group in 2002, a boutique marketing firm specializing in customer loyalty / retention programs. With thousands of successful deployments across North America, CLG is a leader in multi-channel rewards / customer retention programs in the hospitality and motorsports markets.
