Posters, DVDs, press, and a screening

Oh hi again,

Good news all around.  First, SPOILS got some great press! We were featured in, New York Mag, and we were on the f'ing front page of the Huffington Post!  Wow!  Have you watched the film yet?  Watch it love it share it.


Ok, second: Posters and DVDs.  They arrived.  I have them.  They are beautiful.  If you are slated to receive a DVD and/or poster.  It's on the way.  If you have changed address since the survey, please email me at  Otherwise, sit tight and watch for the mail.


If you're around NYC, this Sunday SPOILS is screening at UnionDocs in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as part of a program of shorts I put together.  All the filmmakers will be present and it should be a great night.  Plus we'll probably go out after and booze.  Plus my mom's gonna be there! Mahm! Details here: 

I would love to see you there.  

All the best all the time,
