A Long (Overdue) Update...


It's been a little while since we've been in touch, but we now have lots of exciting news to share!

First, an update from Jason Miller, who is putting together the documentary:

Hello backers! I must once again thank you dearly for your continued patience and support as I realize we're now considerably overdue for the release of the film. As many of you know, Lousy with Sylvianbriar brought about not only a change in musical style for Kevin, but also a change in lineup. We were yet again faced with the decision to end the film or continue the story. We chose to continue the story through to the current iteration of the band and I think you'll all appreciate seeing the complete story up to this point. We've finally finished a rough cut and are moving towards a final cut which will then need color correction and sound mixing. It's too soon to give an exact release date, but we wanted to keep you all in the loop and ease any fears that this project was going off the rails or dying. It's very much alive. Thanks so much! -Jason

In other news, we received the DVD packaging from Stumptown and it looks great! Here are some photos from the production process and of the final product. The backs are each stamped with a different number to show that the copy you have is unique and limited.

More to come soon!

      Update please! We're almost into April and the last update was early December!

      I agree. Another update is yet again long overdue at this point.

      It's the March comment for an update. I understand that there was no release date (ugh) on the final cut ... but surely after almost 3 months you have a better estimate of when the color correction and sound mixing will be finished.

      I would be a lot more patient with at least monthly updates to let me know this is still in the works and I didn't just throw my money.

      Thanks for the news !!!
      I'm glad that you decided to add the current shows in the documentary! I'm sure the wait worth it anyway, but knowing that the film will be even better eventually just made my day!
