Hi,

The Full Metal Jacket Diary project is the topic of discussion on the next episode of Between the Lines with Barry Kibrick on PBS. Barry has an in-depth conversation with Matthew about the making of the film and his book/app. The show airs on different days/times throughout the country and not in all markets, so click on the link below for details.

Click on the tab at top labeled AIRING THIS WEEK to see the episodes playing in your market. Scroll through until you find your state and station.

Also, this is the last full week of our Kickstarter campaign to help fund the new audiobook version of Full Metal Jacket Diary. If you'd like to support our efforts, please visit the project page below. For $25, you can pre-order the 4-disc CD set. $35 gets you an autographed poster! Check out all the new rewards!

Backers!

We sold out of the first batch of Blu-rays, but we just got more! If you're interested in getting a copy of the new 25th Anniversary Blu-ray "DigiBook" Edition of Full Metal Jacket – autographed by Matthew Modine – head on over to our new Kickstarter project and make your pledge today! We don't have many, so it's first come, first served, but we wanted to let our iPad app backers know first.

The shrink wrap on each copy will be carefully removed at the bottom for Matthew to sign in a silver Sharpie (see picture). This edition has been newly REMASTERED on Blu-ray for the first time and includes a 40-page book with photos and an all-new "remembrance" by Matthew Modine. As an added bonus, this set includes a DVD of the documentary, Stanley Kubrick's Boxes!

But that's not all! Each backer will also receive a limited edition mini print of Stanley Kubrick's Director's Chair signed and numbered by Matthew Modine and a digital download of the new Full Metal Jacket Diary audiobook. Plus, we'll follow you on Twitter!

Support our new Kickstarter project and get your copy today – while supplies last!
