Final Distribution, Rewards & SXSW Panel!

12 likes

Hello VGTM Backers!

I'm sure you have all seen the reward surveys start to go out, which is exciting in and of itself...but we have even MORE exciting news! We have at long last finalized our theatrical, VOD & home video distribution strategy for VGTM!  3 quick updates related to this...

DISTRIBUTION PARTNER

I am proud to announce we have partnered with GoDigital & Variance films who have recently merged to form Amplify. Amplify is an exciting partnership for VGTM as it provides a strong distribution channel for our theatrical, home video & VOD release plan. This will ensure VGTM gets the widest possible release to the public, which is what we have always wanted. Variance Films has experience and expertise in successful theatrical distribution, specifically for documentaries, while few companies handle 'digital' distribution (VOD, SVOD, etc) better than GoDigital.  

We are gearing up to start working with Amplify on our release schedule and I hope to update you all very soon with that specific schedule.  Tentatively we are targeting a Summer theatrical release with VOD and DVD/Bluray following after, but we will update you all as we have specific dates for each release window.  

REWARDS!

We have made a special deal with our distributor whereby all of our Kickstarter backers will receive their copies of the film 1st!  To clarify, by 1st I mean BEFORE anyone else has a chance to purchase the film!  For digital copies this will look like a download code we provide and for physical discs (DVD / Bluray) this will be sent in the mail along with your other rewards (t-shirts, posters, etc.)  Exciting stuff!

SXSW FESTIVAL PANEL!

We were approached by the South by Southwest Film & Game Festival (aka 'SXSW') to provide a 'Video Games: The Movie' stage panel during the Gaming Track portion of SXSW.  We of course accepted and will be showing short clips of VGTM as well as talking about the "behind the scenes" making of process with a few industry people who are featured in VGTM.  We are thrilled to have this panel as it will only provide more public exposure and buzz for the upcoming theatrical release!  If you would like to come by the panel at SXSW please do!  It will be at 2pm on Sunday March 9th at the Palmer Event Center on the "SXSW Geek Stage" there in Austin, TX. Come say hi to me! I love meeting our amazing backers.

More to come soon!  XOXO

      Hey, Jeremy, how's the project going? A month ago it seemed like it's nearing completion, but we haven't heard from you for so long... could we ask for an update?
