PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL ENTERPRISES (PIE) AND UAV ENTERTAINMENT CORP TO RELEASE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED WILDERNESS FAMILY SERIES ON DVD IN 5.1 CHACE DIGITAL STEREO
FORT MILL, SC - April 25, 2003 /PRnetwire/ -- UAV Entertainment Corp, based in South Carolina, recently announced an agreement with PIE
for the re-release of the Wilderness Family Series, a collection of fourteen
family adventure films. Included in the re-mastering process is the addition of
a Spanish language option, new film elements, and 5.1 Chace Digital Stereo.
"We're thrilled to have the opportunity to present these films to a new
generation of families," said Steve Chase, SVP of Sales and Marketing at UAV
Entertainment. "Each movie offers the viewer the chance to experience the beauty
of the American landscape while highlighting the strength of the human spirit."
Arthur R. Dubs, president and founder of PIE, could not hide his excitement for
the re-mastering of his classic family adventure series. The new DVDs feature
multiple bonus features including Producer's Lifetime Achievement Award, the
original theatrical trailers and television commercials, the option of Spanish
language, and re-mastered 5.1 channel stereo tracks by Burbank-based Chace
Productions. "The new Chace Digital Stereo tracks bring the sound of the wide
open spaces right into the living room for viewers to enjoy" said Dubs. Chace,
which had previously created the stereo versions of these films, is using its
all-digital 5.1 processor to add new stereo surround directionality to these
exciting adventure films.
Dubs unintentionally began his film career when he shot footage of his trek from
Alaska to Baja, California, armed with a backpack and a 16 MM camera. The 40,000
feet of footage was carefully edited into American Wilderness, which made its
North American theatrical debut in 1970. After his initial success, Dubs
produced only family adventure films, evolving his signature storyline of the
human struggle against the majesty of nature. This certainly struck a cord with
the public, which allowed Dubs to become one of the most successful independent
movie producers and distributors in US history. Ten of the major films he
produced have made Variety's weekly chart of the Top 10 Grossing theatrical
Throughout the years, the Wilderness Family series has received accolades from
moviegoers and critics alike. PIE's first major production, "The Adventures of
the Wilderness Family," has received plaudits for chronicling the struggles of a
modern day family shunning the monotony of city life. "Windwalker" was named the
Best Anthropology Film of all Time by the American Anthropological Association,
besting "Dances with Wolves," "A Man Called Horse" and "Gorilla's in the Mist"
with a new global audience of families every 4 to 5 years. It is no wonder that
the combination of high adventure, acclaimed photography, and strong family
value content has attracted movie lovers around the globe to experience the
Wilderness Family titles. Scheduled for release on DVD this summer are "The
Adventures of the Wilderness Family," "The Adventures of the Wilderness Family,
Part II," "Mountain Family Robinson," "Windwalker," "Across the Great Divide,"
"Challenge to be Free," "Vanishing Wilderness," "Cold River," "Blue Fin,"
"Mystery Mansion," "The Dream Chasers," "Wonder of It All," "Sacred Ground," and
"The Great Adventure."
