Check out this fun 10-minute mini doc on 95ers... filmed in my basement post production lair!  And guess what... you're mentioned in it!

Greetings Time Travelers,

95ers is playing at the awesome BOSTON SCI-FI FILM FEST on February 14th, 9pm!  Did you know, that in addition to being a time travelin' thriller, 95ers is also a love story?  Perfect for V-day!

Update #29

95ers movie coming your way

Comment

GREETINGS TIME TRAVELERS!

Good things are slowly but surely happening on the distribution front!  (We were fortunate to get an honest and hardworking distributor right off the bat... but this phase of the game really is, well, a game. Lots of middlemen who care mostly about the next middleman, and in the end, the filmmaker and the audience often lose out.  I'll do a big blog post about this sometime soon, but my next project will avoid this entirely...)

$50 and up donors WILL BE RECEIVING AN HD DOWNLOAD OF THE MOVIE THIS WEEK!!!  And have no fear, when the DVD is released, you will also be getting that, per the promised rewards.  We are negotiating some distribution offers and opportunities, and one way or another a DVD will be available first part of next year, and inexpensive VOD will also be available for everyone.  But I didn't want to make you want any more!

We are doing a big push to get on Netflix right now... and if you have a spare 26 seconds... you can help!

Literally, all you do is CALL THEM.  1-866-579-7115.  Just say: "I heard about a movie called 95ers: ECHOES, and I want you to carry it."  That's it.  The customer service person will give that request to their buyer, and my distributor will be talking with their buyers.  Netflix is one place where audience members and customers do seem to matter. :)

Other things you can do... that really do make a difference these days... and only take 2.9 seconds each...

Update #28

More news on 95ers release and DVD reward...

5 comments

Greetings Time Travelers,

I just got word (literally an hour ago) that the official DVD and VOD release in Japan is November 2nd...  SO for kickstarter donors of $50 and up, I'm going to see if I can get a batch of those discs--which are actually IN ENGLISH.  (I'm kind of bummed, actually... I wanted to hear my time travelers talking in Japanese!)  AND, 95ers is going to two major film markets (AFM and MIPCOM) this month.  We're hoping and praying for a US and European deal soon.  If nothing shakes loose forthwith, the KICKSTARTER SPECIAL EDITION DVD will be coming your way.

For donors under the $50, I'm hoping to find a cheap VOD (video on demand, or online viewing) or DVD solution soon.

Thanks again for your support and patience.  We'll get this out to you absolutely as soon as possible.

-Tom
