UPDATE: COLOR ME OBSESSED has played three film festivals and the buzz is through the roof. We've got Boston this week. Minneapolis next. And over a half-dozen other screenings about to be announced soon!
Rolling Stone just named us one of the 7 best new music docs of the year: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/photos/the-seven-best-new-music-documentaries-of-the-year-20110311/color-me-obsessed-a-film-about-the-replacements-72aa249

But we've got to keep it going...Now here's all the stuff on the film:
From director Gorman Bechard comes the potentially true story of the most influential, always drunk, self-destructive, and yet frighteningly brilliant rock band of all time as told through the eyes of their fans, followers, and fellow musicians.
Love, hate, obsession, tears, vomit...it might not be the prettiest story ever told, but it certainly rocks.

We've interviewed over 140 fans, followers, journalists, and fellow musicians everywhere. Have over 250 hours of footage.
Wait...so many interviews! Who, you may ask? Well...Grant Hart & Greg Norton (Husker Du), Tom Arnold, the Goo Goo Dolls, Colin Meloy (Decemberists), Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), Tommy Ramone, Dave Foley, George Wendt...and so many others...
See a bunch of them above.

Whatever we raise right now will go towards getting the film out there...so that everyone knows the story of the greatest rock band ever!
What makes COLOR ME OBSESSED special? Well, for starters, we know how to make features on micro budgets. We have a proven track record. (We are not kids just out of film school talking about making a feature. This is what we do.) This is NOT a waste of your money. The film is finished, it WILL play film festivals (don't tell anyone but as of today we're in seven!), and you WILL receive your backer prize.
Just check the official websites for our last two features, YOU ARE ALONE (www.YouAreAlone.com) and FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS) (www.FWBmovie.com), see the list of awards, read the IMDB reviews for both films, and read the Amazon reviews for YOU ARE ALONE.
NOTE to anyone pledging and getting a DVD screener: These DVDs screeners will be in your hands almost ONE FULL YEAR before the film is made commercially available on DVD! So...rejoice!
Also this is your last chance to buy get a COLOR ME OBSESSED t-shirt or any of the cool prizes listed to the right.
