Major Film Update
We have a great deal of exciting news to share with you.
FINAL EDIT COMPLETE
After months of countless hours of editing, the final edit of the film is complete! We have sent the edit to be color corrected and the audio to be mastered. This final process will ensure that the film looks consistent and polished throughout.
We feel confident that the film is what we had set out to accomplish and we can't wait to show it to you. We have said it before and we will say it again: this film would not exist without Kickstarter.
WORLD PREMIERE & SCREENINGS
Our world premiere of the film will be February 3rd at the SVA Theatre in New York City. A few days later, the film will screen in Boston and other east coast cities. Tickets are on sale now on our website and more will be added very soon.
After the east coast dates, there will be screenings on west coast in February - dates and locations will be announced soon. Don't worry Midwesterners, we haven't forgotten about you. The Midwest premiere will be late February in our home town, Springfield, Missouri.
Many screenings are in the works including the UK and Europe. Watch our website for new locations and dates.
As you can see above, we have released our official trailer for the film! We hope you enjoy.
Screenings of the film will be scheduled all throughout the spring of 2012. We do not have an official film release date yet, but it will most likely be early summer. We know that this will keep you waiting longer than you had hoped, but we promise it will be worth the wait. All Kickstarter backers will receive their DVD or download before they are available to the public.
We added a resources page to our website that will be a site for information about the Linotype. We hope this will become a hub for Linotype information in the future. We also launched a new shop and to celebrate, you can use discount code "Mergenthaler" for 30% everything in the shop this week.
We thank you so much for your support and excitement for the film. We hope to see you out on the road. If you are a backer and come to one of the screenings, please introduce yourself - we would love to shake your hand.
All the best,
Doug, Brandon & Jess
