How Far We Have Come

Posted by Douglas Wilson (Creator)

There are times when things come together to remind you of how blessed and lucky you are. This is one of those times.

Right now, people are sitting down to watch the film in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Tonight, people in Knoxville, Tennessee will see the film. Currently, we are working on the Spanish sub-titles that will be used for a screening in Buenos Aires, Argentina next week. 

This is amazing to us. The film has screened in over two dozen locations all around the world and many more screenings are planned.

Although we still have a massive amount of work still left for the DVD and digital release, we want to take this moment to thank you for your support and patience in the process of making the film. We will have some exciting announcements and an updated release schedule to share with you in a few weeks.

It is an honor to be on this crazy journey with you.

All the best,

Doug, Jess and Brandon
"Linotype: The Film" Crew
