Blending unique expert segments with a relatable and funny fictional story designed to take the “hell” out of self-help, “The Keeper of the Keys” will premiere Dec. 8 during a red carpet event at the all-new Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas at 7 p.m.
“The Keeper of the Keys” stars Jack Canfield, co-creator of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” franchise and author of “The Success Principles”; Dr. John Gray, Ph.D., author of “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus;” and Marci Shimoff, author of “Happy for No Reason,” “Love for No Reason” and “Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul.” The movie also features 15 experts, including personal development speakers, coaches and authors from around the world, each sharing deeply personal stories of challenges, success and overcoming adversity.
The film’s director and editor Scott Cervine portrays Michael, an everyman who has had a rough couple of months. One night, Michael finds himself embarking on an incredible journey where he encounters experts who can help him regain control of his life. Through his journey, viewers are introduced to seven keys that can improve their lives: appreciation, harmony, faith, courage, passion, empathy and vibration.
The movie was written and produced by award-winning author Robin Jay. Jay began her career in the field of personal development with her first book, “The Art of the Business Lunch” (Career Press), currently in 12 languages. Later, as president of the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau and its parent company, TwoBirds, Inc., Jay published the best-selling anthology series, “The Power of the Platform,” which features motivational stories from more than 60 professional speakers, including Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Keith Ferrazzi, Marci Shimoff and other leaders in the industry.
“Ever since the success of ‘The Secret’ self-help films have followed the same formula of delivering endless sound bites from dozens of ‘talking heads,’” Jay said. “I wanted to do something more entertaining and compelling. For that, a movie needs to be funny. I think we have to engage the viewers before we can empower them. This movie is designed to take the ‘hell’ out of self-help by appealing to viewers whether or not they are fans of personal development.”
Following the screening, an after party will be held in the Plaza’s Triple Crown Ballroom and will feature a special “Key-tini” cocktail, Gigi’s Cupcakes, live music and dancing as well as an appearance from Steve Connolly as Elvis.
Tickets for the premiere are $100 each, or two for $150, and includes a walk down the red carpet, opportunities to meet the stars and experts, as well as admission to the after party. Limited VIP tickets priced at $200 include admission to special VIP sections during the screening and after party. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada.
