For Immediate Release Wednesday 14th October 2009
Andrews UK Limited– AUK– is pleased to confirm its entry into the publishing, sales and distribution market of media products. Headed up (and totally owned) by industry veteran Paul Andrews, who previously founded the media company Alten8, co-founded the sales and distribution company Entain8, and a range of other media web sites and companies. AUK was actually founded in the year 2000, but is now being used as a vehicle for a new wave of media releases by Andrews. Many former clients of Entain8 have already moved over the AUK, such as B7 Media (Blake's 7) and Craftsman Audio. A raft of new third party clients such as Blue Dolphin Films, Accent Press and Summersdale have already signed with AUK for a range of publishing, sales, and distribution deals.
AUK has signed a wide range of several hundred Audio books, which include titles such as 'Charlie's Ark' created by Mike Payne (the creator of 'Tatty Teddy', of Me to You Bears fame), A range of Shakespeare titles performed by actor Gerard Logan, and many more.
Software and games releases will also feature in the immediate future via third party labels to be announced.
Upcoming film releases on DVD include 'Deaden', the controversial violent film by director Christian Viel, and cult horror film 'She-Demons Of the Black Sun' from Sv Bell.
Another exciting range within the AUK spectrum is a whole new music portfolio. This is comprised of selected artists and bands who AUK is publishing directly, as well as other independent bands and musicians. The first range of these to be released are the artists - 'Ed Napoli', 'Beechwood', 'Ryker Sear', 'The 40seven', and 'Mean Poppa Lean'.
Paul Andrews, CEO said“I am very excited about what we are doing over at AUK; it is the culmination of years of work coming together allowing us to release a wide range of artists and content which otherwise would not have had a mainstream release. We want to support directors like Christian Viel, and champion new artists like Ed Napoli, whose music I personally found on the internet, followed his progress and knew it was someone who people had to hear. I am also honoured to be working with people like Mike Payne, who is placing his trust in us to nurture his new creation 'Charlie's Ark' - from someone who created a property such as 'Tatty Teddy' (which has sold hundreds of millions of units), this shows the calibre of what AUK is aiming to achieve. We also aim to offer the keenest prices in the UK for sales and distribution, as well as CD and DVD replication for our clients, and welcome labels as well as individual artists to contact us to discuss this potential.
