It's Out! (or: Holy Cow, What a Ride!)

And hooray! We took that photo while we were shooting the opening shot of A Place to Stand - a time-lapse of an Albuquerque sunset over the city. That photo best represents what we're feeling now because three days ago, on Friday June 17th, A Place to Stand was finally, finally, finally released to the world. 

I know we've said "we're excited!" about a thousand times by now, but, by golly, we are still very excited. Next to completing the film, this is the biggest milestone in our journey. The film is now available for rent or purchase via iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/a-place-to-stand/id1109110672 - and in the next weeks, it will be available in 20 other places. (For those of you still due a digital download of the film, rest assured that it's still coming. We'll send a direct link to your email address in a few weeks.)

It's also available for educators, schools and institutions via The Video Project - http://www.videoproject.com/a-place-to-stand.html.

We do have two favors to ask. 

Would you be willing to one, write a review of the film on iTunes? And two, share that iTunes link with your friends, family and social media networks? We don't have much of a marketing budget so still do need word-of-mouth support to help share this with the world. Anything you can do to help would be amazing. 

Thanks again for everything and for being patient with us on this long, wild ride. 

With Gratitude,
The A Place to Stand Team

A Place to Stand on iTunes!

Hello Friends & Supporters,

We’ll keep this update short, sweet and to the point. A Place to Stand is available for pre-order on iTunes! Hooray! Click here to check it out - http://apple.co/1VYJPC0.

If you’re wondering why you should pre-order, it’s because you’ll get a special exclusive digital download package which includes bonus features, additional short documentaries about Jimmy, the soundtrack of the movie & more. Just forward your receipt to info@aplacetostandmovie.com and we’ll hook you up!

If you already have a copy, or we owe you one (to be delivered after the launch), you can consider gifting one for a friend! Please spread the word! If we can get 150 or more pre-orders, it dramatically increases the odds of us being seen by millions more people on launch day – June 17th.

Thanks again for all of you support!

With Gratitude, 
The A Place to Stand Team
