Coming... Soon?

I'm at home now sitting waiting for a plumber who has been scheduled to come here three times in the last week and has consistently been a no-show. So I can appreciate how frustrating & even infuriating it is to wait, and wait, and wait...

Which brings us to Blood + Kisses. Here's what I can tell you:

The movie is complete, color-corrected, and sweetened. It's different than the movie that screened in Vegas and won best picture at that film festival. The trailer you see on the site and on YouTube only includes footage from the first shoot. The old version was pretty good. The new one's better. No one has seen it yet as it's not had an official screening.

We also have a new trailer that's finished, but there's no point getting people excited about it until we're really ready to release it. We also have a lot of special features for the DVD that are also complete.

So, there's no question the movie will be released. All the work is done. All the money to produce it has been spent. The decision was made to go independent all the way with this movie and as anyone who's made a movie without studio backing, or self-distributed their own film can tell you, it's a tough row to hoe.

We could trickle it out to the internet now and make a couple pennies before we watch it get pirated or we could wait until we have the resources to release it properly and recoup our investors' investment. We've chosen the latter course of action. I hope you'll understand and continue to be patient with us.

I do read everyone's comments and I post most of them without editing or commenting. To those who write pissed-off messages and draw big penises made out of x's and o's on their keyboard, well, I suspect you just have too much time on your hands, and although you get a B+ for creativity, you can appreciate why I choose not to post those.

I will post an update when we have some real news.
