(August 1, 2001) - Screen Archives Entertainment, one of the largest providers of soundtracks and movie music to collectors worldwide, has revamped its Internet website, http://www.screenarchives.com/ to include more information about releases and search capabilities.
"We have been working for more than a year getting customer input and researching what our customers wanted in a new site," said Craig Spaulding, owner of Screen Archives Entertainment. "While the new site has been up only a few days, the response has been very positive," Spaulding said.
In addition to producing its own label, Screen Archives Entertainment handles thousands of titles and composers. "With so many new releases, our inventory had grown to an extent that we were no longer able to remember every title. Although we pride ourselves on customer service, the new website allows customers to search more, and still ask questions," Spaulding said. "The new site is a lot more user friendly and order friendly," he said.
"Our own surveys indicated a high regard for Screen Archives Entertainment's quick turnaround and delivery dependability, quality and customer loyalty. We didn't want to do anything that would diminish our customers' satisfaction," he said.
In addition to quick turnaround on new releases, Screen Archives Entertainment also features older and recent releases, rare, hard to find or out of print CDs and major studios. The company also releases several CDs a year under it own label.
"The internet has made tracking the latest soundtracks easier," said Spaulding, who has had a passion for preserving film scores for more than 30 years. "Because of customer demand, we decided to build a new website that would accommodate their needs," he said.
Next month (September), Screen Archives Entertainment will release one of the most sought after soundtracks by composer Dimitri Tiomkin, "The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell." Noted for its preservation recordings of film music, the Screen Archives Entertainment project was launched when Richard Feiner, owner of the soundtrack album rights to the film, allowed access to recordings of the original scoring sessions, according to Spaulding, co-producer for the project. The limited release will be available from soundtrack retailers or online at www.screenarchives.com, or by calling 540-635-2575.
Recent Screen Archives Entertainment releases include Max Steiner's "Distant Drums" and "Pursued."
