DVDs are (almost) here...and a screening in Poland!

Hello all,

A busy week here with The Bighead!

First, we should be receiving our DVDs very soon. We got the first sample to approve this week and it looks and sounds great. See the pictures for a look at what some of you good folks will be getting very soon!

Next, we are thrilled to announce that we will be having our European Premiere at the end of May in Wroclaw, Poland! The Days of Fantasy Festival will be showing the movie on Saturday (May 25) and producer Geoff Skinner, writer/director Michael Ling will be joining author Edward Lee to talk about the movie that night and other panels throughout  the convention. Just in case anyone wants to join us, details for the convention can be found here (in Polish, but easily translated).

Thanks so much for all your support!  Please let us know what you think of the movie, it on this site or our Facebook page!

Cheers from all of us on The Bighead team!

World Premier!

The World Premier of Edward Lee's The Bighead on Saturday night was a huge success!  We had so many people show up that we had to screen it twice to accommodate everyone. Edward Lee himself was in attendance and believe it or not, saw it for the first time along with the rest of the audience.He told us that he couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and we of course were thrilled.

We couldn’t have done it without you and we want to extend our sincere thanks to all of you for your support.We’ll have many photos over on our Facebook page in the coming days:

We’ve begun submitting the movie to festivals around the country (and a few outside the United States) and we now start the next phase of our journey to turn this into a full length feature film.

Now that the short if finished, we’ll be sending out Kickstarter rewards over the course of the next few weeks.Edward Lee signed the books and posters over the weekend and once we have the DVDs made, we’ll begin making shipments.

Thank you all again for your support and we’ll continue to keep you posted.

Survey Reminder!

The good news is that we're a day or two from officially locking the picture!  After that, it'll be off to sound design, audio mixing, and color correction.  One thing we'll need very, very soon is the responses to your surveys (for those who still have them) so we can put your names in the credits where they belong.
