Allen Farst, founder of Niche Productions, is thrilled to
announce the signing of a distribution deal with Gravitas Ventures
to release his latest film, " Chuck Leavell: The Tree Man, " a
sterling documentary on the rock 'n' roll pianist/keyboardist often
described as the " Fifth Rolling Stone. " The film will be released to
several Video-On-Demand (VOD) outlets on December 1, 2020.
Directed by Farst, " Chuck Leavell: The Tree Man " provides an
epic, in-depth look into Leavell's life both on and off the stage.
Leavell has played and toured with the Rolling Stones since 1982,
and his status as rock royalty may be equaled only by his stature
within the world of environmental forestry, where he previously
has been named the National Tree Farmer of the Year. It's this
fascinating combination of passions, coupled with more than 80
gripping interviews from legendary musicians with a combined
58 Grammy Awards, that already has produced quite the buzz for
the film.
The documentary captivated crowds recently at both the Macon
Film Festival and Sedona International Film Festival, the latter of
which recognized the film as the 2020 People's Choice Award.
" This is a MUST-SEE film for anyone who loves great music and
great documentaries, " said Patrick Schweiss, Artistic Director of
the Sedona International Film Festival. " Director Allen Farst has
managed to capture the life of one of the great keyboard legends,
Chuck Leavell, who has worked with all the greatest musicians
... 'The Tree Man' was a rousing hit at our festival, with audience
members cheering and raving about the film! "
" Allen and I have been working on this for over three years now
and I have to tip my hat to him. He's done a masterful job, " said
" Chuck's story is more than music. It's about life, love and the
precious world we live in. The story is like a circle, the top 180 is
his career in music. The bottom 180 is a mix of a love story and his
life-long work in forestry. You will laugh and cry at all of the right
moments, " said Farst.
With capabilities of reaching more than 100 million homes in
North America and nearly 1 billion homes worldwide, Gravitas
Ventures will be making this must-see movie available on several
VOD platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, VUDU and
