Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends, and hope everyone else around the world is going great.
We wanted to let you know that it is awards season here in the States and we're proud to announce that Far Out is up for two prestigious ones thus far.
- We knew our motion graphics team was talented and now everyone is acknowledging it. While there were a bunch of people who helped animate Tomi's artwork in the film (you know who you are!), Rick Cikowski & Brandon Dumlao will represent the film in New York in January at the awards gala where Far Out is nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Graphic Design or Animation by Cinema Eye Honors. In the world of film & awards, this nomination is a tremendous achievement and we're extremely proud: http://www.cinemaeyehonors.com/archives/category/eligible-films/graphic-design-or-animation
- Equally as humbling is the call we received earlier this week from the Producers Guild of America. They told us that Far Out is one of five films that is a Documentary Motion Picture Nominee at the 2014 PGA Awards: http://www.goldderby.com/news/5103/producers-guild-of-america-pga-documentary-award-film-news-13579086.html
So keep those fingers crossed for us as we head into the months ahead! And as always, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting Far Out since the beginning of our Kickstarter campaign. Truly, thank you!
- By the way, if you have yet to see the film, you can do so one of two ways right now. You can rent or buy the film on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/far-out-isnt-far-enough-tomi/id718645890
- Or you can buy a DVD here: http://firstrunfeatures.com/cgi-bin/sc/ref.cgi?storeid=*18792011bb0e4b50b566b9ba504e&name=FM_Far_Out
Have a great weekend!
Best, Brad & The Far Out Team.
