GET Entertainment, Inc. & High Standards
GET Entertainment, Inc. was founded in 1996 by Kelly Garrett. Mr. Garrett envisioned a
corporate entertainment entity that would create, develop, produce, and distribute a
variety of entertainment mediums for the domestic and international markets. Moreover,
GET Entertainment specifically would promote family-oriented multimedia. Since its
inception, GET has produced original G- or PG-rated action and comedy motion
pictures, network and cable television programming, home video/ DVD entertainment,
and web programming for the Internet. As such, GET Entertainment is a diversified
entertainment corporation focused on the development, financing, and production of
entertainment content geared for the worldwide family audience.
Kelly Garrett, Founder and CEO of GET Entertainment, began his career in the
entertainment industry during his college years. At college, Mr. Garrett helped produce,
direct, and act in a university-funded feature. This film went on to take first place at the
Tom Selleck Film Festival. From this experience, Mr. Garrett recognized his ability not
only to succeed in entertainment, but to take his talents and achieve prominence within
the industry. Aside from his success in film, Mr. Garrett also started Legendary Concert
Tours, a concert promotions company. At this firm, Mr. Garrett wrote, directed, and
produced music videos, in addition to promoting concerts for up-and-coming artists. Mr.
Garrett continued his entertainment pursuits while branching out into the property
ownership and development industry. He built a hotel, restaurant, and fueling station
among other enterprises. During his years helming these projects, Mr. Garrett promoted
an international horse racing event, and produced a complete video of the event. Upon
release of the video, a motion picture production company retained Mr. Garrett to
produce several feature films. These successes led to Mr. Garrett’s creation of GET
Entertainment, Inc. in 1996, which enables him to manage and operate a motion picture
and teleproduction studios and still make feature films.
GET Entertainment is a full-service entertainment company located in Glendale and
Menifee of Riverside, California. The company encompasses three lines of business,
including 1) film and television development, 2) film and television production and
distribution, and 3) real estate development.
To ensure its success in the entertainment industry, GET Entertainment has secured its
prominent standing in the family-oriented niche market. Currently, GET is focusing on
the creation of low-budget feature-length films for both theatrical and direct-to-DVD
distribution. The BSA Merit Badge Series DVD is just one example of GET’s
achievement in this area. A primary goal of GET Entertainment is to build its value by
creating its own library of wholly owned films and television projects. Its growth strategy
is focused around two aims. The first includes expansion of its existing film and
production business by producing low-budget features for its niche market. The second
aim involves the creation of a distribution division. This division would allow GET not
only to retain the portion of revenue that is lost to third-party distributors, but also launch
new programming into the marketplace without being dependent on third-party
GET Entertainment only hires talent that promotes its vision to be the preeminent family
oriented production studio in the entertainment business. As such, the individuals listed
