Here is a statement from the company:
After nine years of successful operations in which 380 films from the 1930s to the 2010s were released on DVD and Blu-ray disc, the Twilight Time personal video label founded by Hollywood studio veterans and filmmakers Brian Jamieson and the late, highly acclaimed Nick Redman, will not be releasing any other titles and we will complete operations this summer. A changing market, rising costs of securities acquisitions and the death of longtime partner and company spokesperson Nick Redman are the main reasons for the closure.
When it launched in 2011, Twilight Time pioneered the concept of bringing rare and distinctive films of all genres to market in 3000 limited editions, available exclusively on two websites: Screen Archives Entertainment and later Twilight Time Movies . This allowed dedicated film buffs to obtain physical copies of highly sought after titles that lacked storage space at local brick and mortar stores. Nick aptly named the company Twilight Time, because ultimately the concept of film as a tangible asset would have a “deadline for sale,” perhaps sooner than later. Nick once said, “At first, we never envisioned being around for almost a decade before it was time for the sun to set on the business.”
Meanwhile, the Twilight Time catalog included legendary films from the libraries of Twentieth Century Fox, Sony Pictures, MGM / United Artists, Universal Studios, Film 4, Protagonist Pictures, Toei Company and others, and featured numerous Academy Award®- and international award-winning titles. Thanks to Nick Redman’s 30+ years as an award-winning film music historian and preservationist, most releases have included synchronized tracks of isolated music or music and effects that have provided a rare platform for praised and unrecognized composers so essential to the production process. Numerous offerings have also provided informative audio commentary tracks involving co-founder Redman and a host of internationally renowned film historians who have expertly contextualized and enhanced the viewing experience.
From the beginning, the main actors of Twilight Time – the essayist and contributor to the comments Julie Kirgo, the packaging designer Louis Falzarano, the soundtrack editor / music historian Mike Matessino, the disc creation supervisor Jeff Jewett and our project coordinator Mike Finnegan – have been instrumental and “the best in class roles in this unique endeavor. We also want to acknowledge the extraordinary help of our distribution and marketing partners to Screen Screen and Twilight Time Movies. Most importantly, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you, the grateful film collector. You have supported us throughout this wonderful journey and we hope you will continue to do so while these “unique” limited series titles are still available to you.
