FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Award Winning Journalist and Filmmaker Aja Vickers enters into a long-term Agreement with Richard Tyler and his 3 film and production companies.
Houston, TX – November 22, 2017- With the success of their first film it’s only natural that filmmaker Aja Vickers and filmmaker Richard Tyler would team up again for future projects. Vickers says she’s excited to continue a working relationship with such an accomplished person.
“I really love working with Richard because he’s not only a stand up guy, his work ethic is incredible. If Richard says he’s going to do something, he does it. That’s not always an easy thing to find when it comes to film production.”
Tyler is a best-selling author, award winning filmmaker, entrepreneur, and the world’s top sales and management expert. Vickers says the two started working together after she attended one of Tyler’s educational seminars. He liked her go-getter attitude, so they met to review some of her work. Tyler liked what he saw so he asked her to collaborate on an inspirational short film he had in mind. Vickers said yes and that’s how everything got started.
Their first short film, titled The Power of Words™ features Sheila Johnstone, an American Sign Language teacher whose mission is to break down the barriers of communication for the hard of hearing and others alike. Her class started through a simple conversation and has grown exponentially. The film seeks to discover how the power of words can create surprising results and positively impact people in ways you couldn’t even imagine. The film was nominated to compete in the prestigious One-Reeler Short Film competition and won in the honorable mention category. Tyler says he’s really proud of the work that he and Vickers accomplished here with real people, not actor’s, telling a real story. Tyler added, “We didn’t have much time to shoot the film and that is where Aja’s TV journalist skills got a chance to really shine. You see in her TV days, shooting, editing and writing were all in a day’s work. Additionally, she usually had short time windows so she got really good at it.”
Tyler stated, “Having our first film nominated and win an Award really tells me that people want to see these kinds of stories. They are uplifting, inspiring, and are really a call to action for people to give more of themselves when it comes the world around us.” Vickers added, ” When you are looking to touch people’s hearts and inspire their actions in a Short Film, everything has to work because there is no time to lose the people and get them back. I think we won because we were able to accomplish this in “The Power of Words” ™.”
The film was the first project released by Excellence Edge Films, which is Tyler’s own film and production company. Tyler was the Director and Executive Producer while Vickers was the Producer and Director of Photography.
Production of the next short film is slated to start this fall and will be the second film in the “Power of You” series. Vickers says working on projects like this is a dream come true and she can’t wait to see what the duo comes up with next.
