Why Choose Paragon Pictures?
One of the many reasons Paragon takes the lead over other companies is that our history stems from understanding production based on our hands-on experience with actual movie production, and the consequent importance of attaining good distribution deals that work for the producer. Paragon represents a boutique firm that matches up each title carefully with the correct selected retailers to maximize profit. We are content-driven and recognize that the business has become a fractured entity, and sales are now based on volume. Paragon strongly believes that individuality within each given title, can be achieved on a mass-level for profitability, while not sacrificing the individual soul and characteristic of the film. This knowledge results in the perfect match for film and distributor, with each film being treated as if it were the next Oscar winner, resulting in accountability without recklessness.
Paragon Pictures launched in 1994. Producing the financially successful thriller "The Killing Jar" in 1997, which sold to HBO, ABC, 90K units on DVD and sold to 161 countries in all formats.
In 2014 Paragon secured a limited theatrical release of the film "Bottled Up" in ten significant theaters across the United States. This theatrical launch allowed Paragon to obtain a lucrative Netflix deal for the title, as well as prominent placement in iTunes and cable VOD, and positioned itself as an ally to producers in the ever-expanding field of digital distribution.
