DomainHoldings Co-Founder John Ferber Becomes a Movie Producer - First Film Opens Saturday in Delray Beach, Florida

DomainHoldings.com Co-Founder John Ferber (who was profiled in our March 2011 Cover Story) is a man of many talents. After selling his previous company, Advertising.com, to AOL for close to $500 million, then co-founding Domain Holdings Group, LLC with Chad Folkening, John is best known as an internet entrepreneur, but that may be about to change. How does Movie Producer John Ferber sound? 

The title now officially fits because John's first movie, The Search for Linton's Treasure, co-produced with Ferber's lovely fiancée Jenna Wehner and former Delray Beach, Florida Mayor/entrepreneur Jeff Perlman, will be opening Saturday (January 19, 2013) with exclusive showings in Delray Beach where their new production company - the

Delray Interactive Movie Company - is headquartered (Saturday also happens to be John's 39th birthday so he has two big occasions to celebrate this weekend). 

Of course, being a digital age filmmaker, the new project from John and his partners is not just any old movie - The Search for Linton's Treasure is described as one of the first "interactive movie experiences" - one in which the viewer becomes the star

The movie's storyline, written by Stephen Brown with artwork and design by renowned artist Jorge Márquez, blends local historical facts with fictional license to take the viewer/movie star on a race against the clock through the streets of downtown Delray Beach in pursuit of town founder William S. Linton’s lost treasure - millions of dollars worth of lost silver that mysteriously vanished more than a century ago. 

The producers say the search for the missing fortune produces "an adrenaline pumping, physically and mentally challenging adventure that will leave you guessing every step of the way." You can get a taste of what they are talking about in the official movie trailer here

The first audience to see exactly how it all works will be

in their seats at 1pm Saturday when the curtain goes up at the company's theater located at 777 East Atlantic Avenue, Suite 301, in Delray Beach. Additional screenings will begin on the hour throughout the day with the last showing at 5pm. The timing will give the movie premiere a central role in the 24th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts that will also be going on this weekend. 

The movie will play throughout Delray Beach's 2013 tourist season, ending June 30, 2013. The $10 tickets for all showings can be purchased here and a portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold will  be donated to local charities (the support of such organizations is something John and Jenna are well-known for). To make the interactive aspect of the movie adventure even more exciting the company, at the end of the film's run, will  be giving away a seven-night cruise for two to whoever ends up solving the mystery the fastest. To quote from another famous movie, that all adds up to "an offer you can't refuse!"
