Steve Bing Feature to Premiere on YouTube

Set in ten bars around LA, writer-director Sebastien Gutierrez‘s comedy-drama Girl Walks Into a Bar stars such familiar names as Carla Gugino, Rosario Dawson, Josh Hartnett, Danny DeVito, and Zachary Quinto. However, when the film premieres March 11th, it will do so not in theaters but rather simultaneously at SXSW and on YouTube, for free.

Producer Steve Bing and promotional partner Lexus are dubbing their movie “the first major motion picture created specifically for web distribution.” Per today’s press release:

“The movie escapes the confines of traditional film production and is a bold undertaking that is set to transform the film industry,” said Dave Nordstrom, vice president of marketing, Lexus. “It seems fitting to support this initiative as we launch our most unconfined vehicle yet—the CT 200h hybrid —in a space that we know will reach an unconventional, sophisticated audience.”

Clintons Head Back to Hollywood

clintons.jpegHollywood is bringing out a few heavyweights to help the Hillary Clinton presidential bid – and her husband is on board as well. Steve Bing, Scott Budnick, Ron Burkle, Michael Kives, David O’Connor and Lona Williams are hosting a reception with former President Bill Clinton on Sept. 18 at the Brentwood digs of O’Connor and Williams. An 8 p.m. VIP cocktail soiree is planned to go 30 minutes followed by the main reception immediately after. The difference between both comes down to price: it’s $250 (limited availability) or $500 a person for the main reception and $2,300 a head for the early VIP toast. It is open to the public so if you’re interested in schmoozing the Clintons and some CAA agents while contributing to Hilary’s campaign fund, click here.
