The Beatles’ Restored Yellow Submarine Feature Film Set For Theatrical Release In May

Once upon a time…or maybe twice…there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland…

[30-April-2012]
LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The Beatles’ classic 1968 animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, has been digitally restored and will be presented on the big screen in select theaters across the United States in May. EMI and Apple Corps Ltd. have teamed with D&E Entertainment (www.DandEentertainment.com) to give Beatles fans of all ages the opportunity to come together and share in this visually stunning movie and soundtrack. On May 5 at the famed Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City, Yellow Submarine will start its theatrical campaign with an 8pm screening.

Currently out of print, the film has been restored in 4K digital resolution for the first time by Paul Rutan Jr. and his team of specialists at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque Inc. Due to the delicate nature of the hand-drawn original artwork, no automated software was used in the digital clean-up of the film’s restored photochemical elements. This was all done by hand, frame by frame. The restored film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 5 (June 4 internationally), and the film’s songtrack album will be reissued on CD on the same date.

Yellow Submarine aficionado John Lasseter (Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios) wrote in his essay for the DVD and Blu-ray packages, “As a fan of animation and as a filmmaker, I tip my hat to the artists of Yellow Submarine, whose revolutionary work helped pave the way for the fantastically diverse world of animation that we all enjoy today.”

“We are ecstatic and honored to have been selected and entrusted to give Yellow Submarine a theatrical campaign,” stated Evan Saxon and Doug Kluthe from D&E Entertainment. “We’re setting up matinee screenings so parents can share with their children as well as evening screenings for all to enjoy. The digital cinema presentation will be the absolute best viewing experience and representation of the hard work put into the film.”

Directed by George Dunning, and written by Lee Minoff, Al Brodax, Jack Mendelsohn and Erich Segal, Yellow Submarine began its voyage to the screen when Brodax, who had previously produced nearly 40 episodes of ABC’s animated Beatles TV series, approached The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein with a unique vision for a full-length animated feature.

Yellow Submarine, based upon a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” “All You Need Is Love,” and “It’s All Too Much.” When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognized as a landmark achievement, revolutionizing a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques.

Inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, the film resides with the dazzling Pop Art styles of Andy Warhol, Martin Sharp, Alan Aldridge and Peter Blake. With art direction and production design by Heinz Edelmann, Yellow Submarine is a classic of animated cinema, featuring the creative work of animation directors Robert Balser and Jack Stokes with a team of animators and technical artists.

“I thought from the very beginning that the film should be a series of interconnected shorts,” remembered Edelmann. “The style should vary every five minutes or so to keep the interest going until the end.” These styles included melding live-action photography with animation, 3-dimensional sequences and kaleidoscopic “rotoscoping” where film is traced frame by frame into drawings. The entire process took nearly two years, 14 different scripts, 40 animators and 140 technical artists, ultimately producing a groundbreaking triumph of animation.

Yellow Submarine synopsis:
Once upon a time… or maybe twice, there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, a place where happiness and music reigned supreme. But all that was threatened when the terrible Blue Meanies declared war and sent in their army led by a menacing Flying Glove to destroy all that was good. Enter John, Paul, George and Ringo to save the day! Armed with little more than their humor, songs, and of course, their yellow submarine, The Beatles tackle the rough seas ahead in an effort to bring down the evil forces of bluedom.

PRN: Alaska Communications Hit With National Class Action

Alaska Communications Hit With National Class Action

Company Disregards The Alaska Labor Department’s Findings Of Overtime Violations
Complaint Details Egregious and Ongoing Violations of Overtime Pay Requirements under the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Alaska’s Wage and Hour Act

[30-April-2012]
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Attorneys from Sanford Wittels & Heisler LLP in San Francisco and Lee Holen Law Office in Anchorage today filed a class and collective action complaint in U.S. District Court in Anchorage against Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc., and Alaska Communications Systems Holdings, Inc., (Alaska Communications) on behalf of former employee Laura Lee Peterson and all other similarly situated sales and marketing employees. The complaint details Alaska Communications’ serious and longstanding violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Alaska Wage and Hour Act (AWHA).

“Alaska Communications is one of the state’s largest telecommunications companies, which has systematically denied its sales and marketing employees basic overtime pay required under federal and state law, while racking up more than $125 million in operating profit last year alone,” said Janette Wipper, a partner at Sanford Wittels & Heisler and a lead lawyer for Peterson and the class. “Alaska Communications willfully continues to retain the overtime wages owed to these employees despite the Alaska Department of Labor’s unambiguous finding that Ms. Peterson was entitled to overtime pay.”

Peterson, a resident of Anchorage, worked for Alaska Communications for almost eight years, from 2003 until mid-2011, first as a market analyst, and later in sales positions of Business Development Manager and Senior Manager of Carrier Sales. During her entire period of employment, the company deprived her of overtime pay by misclassifying her as an exempt employee. During typical workweeks at Alaska Communications, she worked more than 60 hours, without any overtime compensation.

“Federal and state overtime laws were designed, in part, to serve the compelling societal goal of reducing unemployment by giving employers a disincentive to concentrate work in a few overburdened hands and an incentive to instead hire additional employees.” said Chaya Mandelbaum of Sanford Wittels & Heisler. “In today’s economic climate, the importance of insuring that big companies like Alaska Communications are not able to avoid the incentive to hire by illegally requiring their employees to work overtime hours without pay cannot be overstated. It’s a lose-lose situation for its employees and the Alaska workforce.”

After reviewing Peterson’s overtime wage claim, in November 2011 the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development determined that she was not an exempt employee of Alaska Communications and was entitled to unpaid overtime compensation and liquidated damages; however, the company has refused to abide by that determination.

Peterson’s complaint asserts federal overtime claims on behalf of all Alaska Communications employees who worked in a sales or marketing position below the level of Vice President anywhere in the United States from April 30, 2009 until the date of judgment. In addition, she is seeking to recover overtime wages under Alaska’s state law for herself and a class of Alaska Communications sales and marketing employees who have worked for the company in Alaska at any time between April 30, 2010 and the date of judgment.

A jury trial was requested.
