Ok, so I'm one day late. But I did pick up the DVDs yesterday and will start sending them out (along with any other rewards) today. This means the film is absolutely finished and I want to thank everyone big time for contributing to my Kickstarter to make it happen. I hope you'll enjoy the finished product. I'm pretty happy with it. Some have said it's my best yet.
So what happens now with the film? Well I'll be sending it out to film festivals and it exists on a DVD that people can purchase. The film will have it's public premiere Jun. 11 at the Zinema in Duluth, MN. Two screenings: one at 7:00p and one at 8:30p. They'll be showing a few of my other shorts all leading up to the big horrible one. I will be making my grand return to Minnesota. They tell me it's nice there in June. I'll see when I believe it. The screenings are being run by the Zinema so all ticketing is going through them. http://www.zeitgeistarts.com/zinema-2/tickets. I encourage you to come out, see the film on the big screen, and say hello to me. Or punch me in the face. There may be a local Bay Area screening but nothing has been setup just yet.
As Duluth does it's thing, I've already started working on the next project - a live-action Fantasia. I'm sure they'll be some sort of Kickstarter for that when I get a little more organized. I'll continue to write in the ol' duluth blog every now & then and do some updates here too if anything very exciting happens. Thank you again, enjoy the swag, and have a horrible day!
