I am extremely pleased to announce that Virgil Films and Entertainment has licensed the rights to distribute the documentary Hope For Steve!
Virgil is the distributor behind Supersize Me, Forks Over Knives, Out of the Clear Blue Sky and the upcoming film, I Am Chris Farley.
Hope For Steve will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and several other VOD and retail outlets in May. There is also a great opportunity that the film will be on Netflix in the second half of 2016.
We've worked very hard the last three years to get this amazing story out to the masses, but there's no way we do that without all of you, our Kickstarter supporters. And this isn't the generic "thank you note" speak. Without your donations, there really would not be a film. I hope you all take a minute to think about how amazing that is.
When Hope and Steve agreed to share their story back in 2012, their goals were to spread SIGNIFICANT awareness about ALS, raise money for research, and to inspire those blessed with health to vehemently live life to the fullest. Because of your donations, they have been able to do that. And from the production side, as first time (feature) filmmakers, your donations granted us the wonderful responsibility of immortalizing this once in a lifetime story into a film. For that, we will always be forever grateful.
We will be putting on big screening party in Atlanta once the release date is solidified. More details to come later. Obviously, we hope you all can make it.
On behalf of Hope and Steve and the team,
Co-Director, Producer, and Editor.
