Jack & Jack Fans – Watch This Space!

Jack & Jack will be announcing a contest for fans to win a chance to see them live and to get involved with Shuttersong via their Twitter and Instagram accounts in early August!

“We’re always looking for exciting new ways to connect with our fans and Shuttersong is another way to do that,” said Jack & Jack. They will make Shuttersongs to celebrate the release of their new EP, Calibraska, which has trended in the top 5 albums worldwide for five days straight.

“Our goal with the new Shuttersong was to connect likeminded people who love to share photos with each other so they can discover other people with similar interests,” said William Agush, founder, inventor and CEO of Shuttersong. “There are so many great Shuttersongs being made every day on the app, the next step for us was to let them be shared with each other and for others to join as a way to share their special moments in a cool, high-quality way.”

Shuttersong 3.0 is available for free download in the iTunes App Store: http://www.appstore.com/shuttersong

Film to Watch: Prince – Playing at Arena Cinema Hollywood Aug 14

prince_ttPRINS_GRADING_v1_V1_0000_5__79641 copy

Seventeen-year-old Ayoub has a lot on his plate: his father is a junkie, his mother is a lonely divorcé, and his sister is falling in with the wrong crowd. Haunted by his father’s terrible reputation, Ayoub can’t get the attention of Laura, the most beautiful girl in the neighborhood. He does, however, gain the attention of Kalpa, an eccentric, purple Lamborghini-driving, psychotically violent local criminal. Falling in with Kalpa, Ayoub tries to enlarge his status (and wallet) enough to win Laura over, but soon finds that his new life is far more than he bargained for.
