Hello there. Here's an update of where we are with BAD FEVER.
After premiering at SXSW in March, we've been traveling to other festivals and universities screening the film. We recently won a couple of awards out there in the ol' film festival world: Best Narrative Film at Dallas VideoFest, Excellence in Filmmaking at IndieMemphis, and Innovation in Direction at Eastern Oregon Film Festival. And in the near future we will be finally having our international premiere somewhere in Europe. It feels right now that we're in the middle of the festival run.
Early next year we will be distributing the film digitally and, hopefully, on DVD. Those deals are still pending. Once we have an official DVD, we will send out those as the promised Kickstarter rewards.
Sharing the film with audiences has been so rich and fulfilling for me. Most of the time the audiences are receptive, and the film strikes a chord with the right people. Often we've heard that the film and its characters continue to linger on in the mind and in the imagination. The screenings have inspired me; sometimes when I feel hopeless and unable to even think about making another movie, we will have a screening and I'll feel ready to go out and get to work. I've received continuing support and enthusiasm from a lot of people who have seen the film, and have even met some important people to help me make the next one.
Thank you for being one of the first people to help us out and keep us going during our rough post-production phase. It made all the difference. If you haven't seen the film yet, I can't wait to share it with you. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I'll continue to update you with any further news.
