February Update (Important!)

Posted by Anthony Sneed (Creator)

Hey everyone!

Anthony Sneed (producer, DP) here. I just wanted to give you all a well overdue update as to when you’ll be receiving the movie you guys paid for with your hard earned money.

Where the film is at now, is we’ve just signed up with a law firm out in LA and they are taking it around to distributors and places they think we’ll have the best shot at getting Boiled Angels distribution.

That being said, our team obviously would LOVE to simply send off a dvd/Blu-ray/download of the film to our backers who’ve supported us, but the catch-22 here is that if we do so we run the very real risk of jeopardizing any chance of a deal we may get if it were to be uploaded to a torrenting site, etc. I really hope you can understand our concern. Our goal is to get this doc and Mike’s story out to as wide an audience as possible. Please be patient as we use our momentum from our Best Doc win at Fantasia and try to secure a home for our project.

We will be in touch as soon as we hear anything. Fingers crossed!

*PS. Mike will have the portraits done soon, he’s hard at work and there’s a lot of them!

      Finally got an opportunity to see the documentary a couple of months ago here in Melbourne, Australia. And loved it. An update on the portraits would be appreciated and would show a bit of respect to those that supported this campaign. I really want to stay positive but the cash was paid over 2 years ago for this.

      First, let me say how cool this project is and how this story really needs to be told. Amazing stuff, thanks for being out there to tell this. I also appreciate that you need to hold up the full movie for release until you secure a distributor.

      That said, Is there anything you can share of the movie with us? A trailer? First 10 minutes? A deleted scene? An interview? There's things that would go miles to making me feel like I'm included as a backer without putting it all out there.
