Happy Belated Spring!


Dear Backers,

lately everything seems to be belated, even Spring and my update. 

Nevertheless - Happy Spring! May it wake up your most sacred juices and get them rolling as if you were 15. Dry patches will soothe, wrinkles smooth over and the heart will get an extra beat. Stay conscious through this summer because it may be the best time of your life! 

My winter was cold internally and externally so I have nothing else but high hopes for the summer.

I am happy to report that Zeitgeist Films is going to be "Rocks In My Pockets" US distributor. We amazed, thrilled and humbled to be working with their legendary Team. 

We also signed another distribution contract for "Rocks In My Pockets" - with  New Europe Film Sales. They are going to represent the film in foreign territories. 

And now we have a Latvian co-producer - Locomotive Productions. We are going to work together on making the film a Latvian co-production. This means that we'll be able to show the film in Latvia in Latvian.

For online release we have teamed up with Yekra

There are more things brewing for "Rocks In My Pockets" - we'll let them out as they come.

Meanwhile, Matthew Modine (the famous Matthew Modine!), a frequent Bill Plympton collaborator, has a Kickstarter campaign for his "Full Metal Jacket" diary audio book. Please support it! Only 69 hours left to be part of that cool project!

Happy Spring!

Signe and "Rocks In My Pockets" Team

      THANK YOU! The only bad news are that we have to wait for the film to premiere and get released before we can deliver the secret link to the film to our Kickstarter backers.
