The core business of Vesuvio Entertainment is producing and distributing high-end, independent commercial films. Its first film, the multiple award winning BEHIND YOUR EYES had the distinction of being one of the few truly independent films to receive a national release at all 30,000+ Redbox locations in the US, wherein it reached the national charts as the #2 best renting horror DVD. Vesuvio's focus is on the thriller and horror genres, but extends to innovative and topical films such as TOUCH ME, starring Amanda Peet, Michael Vartan, Peter Facinelli, Greg Louganis, and Jane Lynch, which was an Official Selection and Opening Film at the Toronto International Film Festival, and in its television debut, the highest rated indie film ever to air on Lifetime. As well, Vesuvio's film library boasts strong titles such as the cult classic RED SURF, starring George Clooney in his first critically-acclaimed lead role.
Vesuvio is building a brand which leans heavily on the synergy between the continually merging worlds of film and music. The company has an equally synergistic talent management division, overseen by Vesuvio CEO Greg H. Sims, known for launching future "A-list" talent behind and in front of the camera, and who also received multiple Gold and Platinum records for his work with major label artists, including European superstar Anouk.
Vesuvio's team and its track record of lower cost but high impact production, distribution and management position Vesuvio as an important emerging brand and supplier of meaningful entertainment content.
