Warrior Entertainment® was started by current President/CEO Jacquelyn Ruffner in 1989. Originally Warrior began as a company dedicated to music management. In 1993 the company branched out into the area of music videos and film, achieving moderate success. It wasn't until 1995 that Warrior Entertainment® achieved international success with their artist Sasha Alexeev.
Sasha's "Wintertales" album on Asia's largest independent distributor, Rock Records, became an instant success. It was the first time in history that an American Artist was signed directly to a Chinese record label. Sasha's publishing deal with BMG Music Publishing, also represented the first time western business found itself as a direct publisher in Asia for a non-Asian artist.
In 1999, Warrior began backing the feature film THE THIRD SOCIETY. Produced in association with Hubble Productions, the film has been released in 2003 and is now available on DVD, as well as it's hard hitting soundtrack CD.
The J.A. Steel directed mystery action feature SALVATION had its premiere on the Fright Night Film Festival on August 19th, 2007 and is now available on DVD as well.
The highly anticipated horror action feature film DENIZEN completed post-production in December 2009 and has been released on DVD and On Demand as 30-Day Stream on IndieFlix in April 2010. In the meantime DENIZEN is also available as DVD and download on Amazon.com. DENIZEN is the third feature of the award winning director, producer, writer and actress J.A. Steel.
In 2011 J.A. Steel's newest horror shocker BLOOD FARE starring Gil Gerard, Michelle Wolff and Brandi Lynn Anderson is in post-production. In September 2011 Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI) completed the digital coloring on the newly developed Scratch workflow.
