“One Way or Another Productions LLC is a New York based production company that produces independent films, documentaries and online TV content. Producer Princeton Holt founded
the company in September 2000, months before graduating from NYFA.
One Way or Another Productions has released several feature films including Uptown, an award-winning,
critically acclaimed NYC feature-length drama, and Cookies & Cream, a critically acclaimed feature film.
All films began self-distribution in
late 2008, and were produced by Princeton Holt, Brian Ackley and Cassandra
Riddick. Monica Trombley was the production manager/legal counsel for
the films, and they feature artwork by J. Lynn Menzel, and hair, makeup
and wardrobe by Crystal Glass. The completion of these several feature
films is what kicked off the company’s heavy production slate of newly
completed as well as forthcoming feature films projects.
Before long, One Way or Another became
one of the most prolific, low budget independent film production companies
in the area, turning out films at a highly, capital efficient pace.
The company soon discovered its knack for producing feature films with
limited resources; through hard work and savvy grassroots marketing
that included film festivals and internet social networking, they used
them to platform these small films into the marketplace to compete with
those produced for much larger budgets. After completing 9 feature length
films, and one short film, all for smaller budgets, the company used
their network of support and their extensive film festival runs and
critical reception to capitalize on profits from direct-from-website
sales, as well as festival premiere, hand-to-hand DVD sales, in under
2 years time. In addition to this achievement, the company recently
had a number of films from their current catalog picked up by an LA
distribution company, for full-platform television, digital, and DVD
distribution. The films, amongst them Cookies & Cream
and Uptown, are available at retail stores online including Wal-Mart,
Target, Best Buy, Blockbusters, Borders, and Barnes & Noble’s.
Amongst One Way or Another’s upcoming
titles are The 10 Commandments of Chloe,
The Butterfly Chasers, and Kent Sutton’s feature length debut
