About the movie

On Point: The Legacy of Jeff Korba is the inspirational story of a young man from Califon, New Jersey whose positive attitude and giving nature rippled through the people around him.

The nineteen year old son of successful musician John Korba (RENT, Hall and Oats, Hudson River Rats), Jeff was an amazingly talented drummer in his own right, and a person who brought a positive vibe to everything he was involved in.

In November of 2007, Jeff was involved in an automobile accident while traveling through Yellowstone National Park. He died on the scene while accompanied by one of his best friends. Despite a thorough investigation, no cause was ever found for why his vehicle drifted into oncoming traffic.

Jeff left behind an amazing and positive impact on those he met along life’s journey.  In On Point: The Legacy of Jeff Korba, we explore his humanity through the people he surrounded himself with, his family and his peers.

The film features video & music from five of his bands, music he created while in college, several live stage performances and home videos.

You will believe that through actions, one person can make a difference!

Congratulations to Jeff's friend and bandmate Zander Bleck on his release on Interscope Records!

 

Posted May 6, 2012

Jeff's close friend and bandmate from "Monument" Zander Bleck has released the video for his debut single "Temptation". The video was shot in New York City's "Santos Party Room" and reminds us of Zander's early days when Jeff was with him in Monument.

"Temptation" was written by Zander and Holly Knight (who also wrote hits for Heart, Tina Turner and Pat Benatar) and was the song that got the attention of producer RedOne (Lady Gaga, Usher).

 

"Temptation" is the first single off Monument, which Zander recorded in various studios around the world in 2010, and the early part of 2011. A subsequent studio session with producer Mutt Lange produced the track "Bring It On" which was used by FOX Television for their regional and national promos for the PAC 12 NCAA conference games.

 

Both "Temptation" and "Bring It On" are available for sale at iTunes. Zander is now putting the finishing touches on his debut set, Monument, which is to be released later in 2012 on Interscope Records.

In other news, Zander has agreed to take part in the recording of comentary which was to be a special feature included on the original On Point DVD. The commentary segment was dropped due to production time limitations in 2009. Director Bill Crumlic is working to schedule other guests for the commentary recording which will take place in late 2012. The commentary feature is expected to be added to the On Point website and accessable for free in May of 2013.



On Point film is granted IMDb page and is in high gear for the 2010 film festival season!

Posted January 18, 2010. UPDATED January 31, 2010

The well known Internet Movie Database (IMDb) recently recognized the Crumlic Media film production "On Point: The Legacy of Jeff Korba" and granted the film a dedicated page in the official online movie database.

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) is an online database of information related to movies, actors, television shows, production crew personnel, video games, and most recently, fictional characters featured in visual entertainment media. IMDb launched on October 17, 1990, and in 1998 was acquired by Amazon.com.

"On Point" director/producer Bill Crumlic is also listed on IMDb for his first movie acting performance in the 2008 film "Seemless" directed by Harold Jackson III.

Having an official IMDb page helps to legitimize independent film projects by placing them on the largest and most complete record of film, television and published media.

This move also has opened the door to Amazon.com to selling physical DVD, digital downloads and Video On Demand begining in March of 2010. The price to puyrchase the "On Point" DVD on Amazon.co will be $13.99 plus shipping and handling of $2.98. The price through Crumlic Media is only $11.99 plus shipping and handling of $2.95, while supplies last. Once the Crumlic Media supplies are exhausted the only place purchase "On Point" on DVD will be through Amazon.

"On Point: The Legacy of Jeff Korba" gained the page thanks to submission to the "New Hope (PA) Film Festival" and "Migrating Forms Festival of Film and Video" in New York City. The film is currently being considered for acceptance by both festivals.

Currently, two other festivals have received the film and are in the review process including the "Southside (Bethlehem) Film Festival" located in Crumlic's former home the Lehigh Valley. The other festival is the Film Society of Lincoln Center's "New Directors/New Films."

More submissions are planned for the coming months including "Artsfest Film Festival" in Crumlic's hometown of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and the "New Jersey International Film Festival" hosted by Rutger's University where Jeff Korba's mother is a nursing professor.

Bill Crumlic encourages fans of On Point to visit the IMDb page http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1580320/ and place a ranking vote to help the film continue it's sucess and growth.
