“We are adding to the joys of Christmas with our humor-filled magic,” said film director, producer, and CEO of True Vision Media Group Monica Floyd. “We’re so excited for our film to join Netflix’s Christmas-themed roster along with tons of other excellent movies.”
Tis the season to binge watch Christmas movies to get in the holiday spirit with family and friends. Adding some humor to the holidays for films to watch on streaming services, film director and producer Monica Floyd’s debut THE APP THAT STOLE CHRISTMAS available now on Netflix.
The romantic holiday comedy features a roster of talented leading stars including VH1’s reality star and singer Ray J, actor and Grand Theft Auto voice and actor Jackie Long, NAACP Image Award nominee Elise Neal, Peabody Award and NAACP Image Award winner J. Anthony Brown, CW’s All American actor Jalyn Hall and more. Audiences will go on a comedic quest while discovering the importance of life and love this holiday season.
“Team work made this dream work,” said executive producer and VH1’s casting director Amber Ravenel. “It’s our goal that we blessed the world with a film that was not only heart-warming for the holidays, but a great family film for all to enjoy.”
Floyd is a rising entertainment executive who employs her natural talents to motivate others to dream the big dreams. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Cal State University at Northridge and speaks three different languages: French, Russian, and Arabic. Prior to launching True Vision Media Group, Floyd exhibited deft management skills in the comedy arena where she negotiated deals and curated events for high profile comedians. In addition, she navigated the entertainment industry as a singing artist, where she collaborated with R&B singer Ray J, Snoop Dogg, E-40 and Baby Bash. Today, she is carrying out her vision to inspire through the arts and teaching others to dare to be different.
“The movie is in line with our company’s mission of uplifting and inspiring through the arts,” Floyd (https://www.instagram.com/dollphacemusic) stated. “Just like in any good Christmas movie, I want subscribers who watch this film to be motivated to find balance in this tech-driven world.”
THE APP THAT STOLE CHRISTMAS is a new family-values classic with a comedic-tech twist. While a tech entrepreneur’s Christmas shopping app is a smashing success, the invention is possibly ruining the holiday spirit. The focus of the film is to get people to put their apps away and be present.
The success of this project was a collaborative effort, which included executive producers Miriam Bably and JayQ the Legend of Breakout Music, Amber Ravenel of The Ravenel Agency, Leah Daniels Butler and Henry Butler of LBD Casting and Joshua Edwards. The producers of the film were Monica Floyd, Gabrielle Collins, Greg Anderson and Stacey Lyes with co-producers Monyette Buie and Latoya Stroman. Cinematography was completed by Ben Griffin.
