BIC Media Solutions 2017 update
More books, films, events and speaker’s bureau additions planned for this year
BIC Media Solutions has had a successful and exciting 2016, launching new books, events, films and a speakers bureau. In June 2016, BIC Media Solutions released its latest book, “Rock Bottom and Back — From Desperation to Inspiration.” Written by New York Times bestselling author Susan Mustafa with Earl Heard, “Rock Bottom and BackTM” depicts the incredible lives of 22 people who hit rock bottom and then came back from profound despair to help others in extraordinary ways. Featuring celebrities as well as ordinary people, “Rock Bottom and Back” reveals the tragedy of reaching bottom through loss, trauma, alcoholism, and drug, sex or gambling addictions. This compilation offers hope to those who have hit bottom and is a roadmap to wellness, redemption and — ultimately — a successful life.
A companion DVD — narrated by actor Danny Trejo and co-produced by BIC Media Solutions, Mission Media Films and YASNY Entertainment — was also released last year. This DVD features interviews with Jerry Strickland, Whitney Strickland, Tonja Myles, Stanley Roberts, David Bottner and Billy Rivers, whose stories are also highlighted in the book.
Following the release of the book and DVD, BIC Media Solutions’ “Rock Bottom and Back” hit the road with private screenings and book signings to support the charities and organizations highlighted in the project. The first stop in the film’s premiere tour took place in New Orleans to support The New Orleans Mission. The tour continued to Pasadena, Texas, to sup- port The Wheelhouse, a bare-bones living environment that offers help to men with drug or alcohol addictions.
To coincide with the release of “Rock Bottom and Back,” BIC Media Solutions launched its own energy, management, sales and motivational speakers bureau and events featuring celebrities as well as ordinary people. Among other energy and management topics they address, these speakers provide inspiration and hope by illustrating recovery and success are possible through living in service to others.
BIC Media Solutions’ speakers bureau already includes Billy Arcement, Shawn Galloway, Brian Horner, Tonja Myles, Billy Rivers, Maurice “Termite” Watkins and Dr. Shirley White. The speaker’s bureau also consists of BIC Alliance and BIC Media Solutions Founder and CEO Earl Heard, who is also conducting several speaking engagements of his own. Heard recently spoke at the 117th Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet in Texas.
What’s ahead for BIC Media Solutions
BIC Media Solutions has several projects already underway for 2017. For example, more speakers are expected to be added to its speaker’s bureau this year. BIC Media Solutions is also continuing the pro- motion and distribution of “Rock Bottom and Back.” The DVD and book are now available for purchase through websites such as www.Amazon.com and www.rock bottomandback.com. Other organizations have recently agreed to add “Rock Bottom and Back” to their catalogs, including www.christiancinema.com.
Following the success of “A Gift Horse” in 2015 and “Rock Bottom and Back,” BIC Media Solutions is currently in pre-pro- duction of its next film, “Urban Country.” The film is centered around a young, troubled, inner-city girl named Faith, who is put in a juvenile detention center. She is then reunited with her mother, who takes Faith in to live on her farm. Faith discovers her mother is sick and she is in danger of losing her home. Faith must figure out a way to save the family farm.
BIC Media Solutions is also publishing a new book in 2017. It is currently working with TDS Inc. and Launchpad Writing + Research to put together this book, which will discuss training and leadership in the energy industry.
BIC Media Solutions is continuing to take part in several events this year as well. It is a sponsor of the upcoming Light Up The Hills Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, which will be held July 6-9. Light Up the Hills provides daily Christian worship and entertainment events, as well as plenty of time to enjoy motorcycle rides on routes identified by skill level and scenic experience. Rally attendees can ride on their own motorcycles or with Christian motorcycle clubs to experience fellowship and worship in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
