Things looking good for 2013 release.  Here's where we're at:

The movie has long been completed.  An early cut played in some festivals.  Adjustments were made, picture was locked, extra features were created.  Additionally, here is the progress we've made so far this year:

1) We have authored the DVD with the movie and extras.  Yeah, yeah... I know...  DVD is prehistoric but we will probably still release on DVD in addition to VOD download and streaming.  Blu Ray doesn't make sense as the movie was shot Standard Def.  I have watched it play from DVD on a big HD television though and it looks pretty good.  In fact most of it looks quite good, with only a handful of shots looking a little degraded.  We still need to get DVDs made in bulk, but the master is pretty much complete except for artwork.

2) Trailer is almost finished.  When the movie was put on hold, the trailer was left in an unfinished state.  (The trailers on YouTube were not the final ones and neither one was posted by us).  Putting the Avid project in mothballs meant that there was some effort needed to resurrect the trailer cut with all its elements.  Like putting a puzzle together.  The new trailer is looking good and is key to us marketing the movie.

3) Which brings us to marketing and distribution.  Looking to get the marketing elements created, a distribution plan implemented and the movie in release by the end of the year.  The Kickstarter campaign, as someone suggested, is a good idea and we are looking into that as well.  That could get the money needed for the final push, but even if we don't do Kickstarter, we are planning on getting this out.

4) The other Denise Masino movie is nearing completion as well.  We do not plan on sitting on this one for (gulp) seven years.  Will talk more about this later.  Hope to have it completed by end of 2013, meaning a potential release next year.

Sorry guys. Just approved a round of comments for publication. Didn't want to publish them without answering.

Still no official release date. We will be resurrecting the movie in the next few months and authoring the DVD. Then we will put a plan into motion regarding the marketing and release of the movie. Hopefully it will see the light of day sometime 2012.

Thanks for your patience and suggestions.

Just posted a bunch of comments from you all that had been waiting for approval. Didn't realize there was such a backlog. I will try to be more on top of things : )

We do read and appreciate every comment.

B+K Update

Sorry. No news regarding the BLOOD + KISSES release. Hopefully 2010 will be the year we send this out into the world. But I can't make any predictions.

There's no big mystery here. It's just a question of enough capital becoming available to do the self-release. In times like these, everyone's just doing what they can. My partners and I are still in a rebuilding phase and things are looking up, but the money required to do this right is still a good chunk of change and we're not in that place just yet.

I'll let you know as soon as anything new happens. Thanks for your patience.

Blood on Ice

To answer your recent questions... Yes, B+K is still going to be released. It will come out on DVD with the movie plus some interesting extras. There may also be other ways to see the movie such as streaming over the internet, but that's yet to be determined. And finally, no, we unfortunately do not have a release date yet.

We will definitely post the information here as soon as there is something to tell. This is actually the best place to check back for current info.

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.

Hi all. Sorry there's been no updates, but there's really been nothing new to say. It looks like this movie will not see a release in 2008. We're projecting a release for 2009, but, no specific dates yet.

Here's the deal: After meeting with a number of international distributors for our film, and evaluating their offers, we decided the best move would be for us to self distribute. To do this right, requires a significant amount of resources of time, energy and finances. So as soon as we can allocate all the necessary resources to get this movie out, we will do so. Hopefully sexy vampire movies with ass-kicking female bodybuilders will not be out of fashion by the time it comes out : )

I know it's frustrating, but we appreciate your patience. When we have real news to give, you'll be the first to know about it.

Horror Never Dies

I went to see "The Bank Job" last night (a terrific movie by the way) and saw no less than 3 trailers for horror movies, including one crazy flick based on a story by Clive Barker called "The Midnight Meat Train"!

It looks like sick fun. I hope it doesn't suck.

Speaking of which, I recently saw what I thought was the coolest vampire movie of the last decade, "30 Days of Night." It's done up with a lot of style and Josh Hartnett is kickass in it. It's kind of like "28 Days Later" meets "The Thing."

And while we're giving free movie plugs, I remain haunted by the sick and brilliant "Devil's Rejects." The cinematography, the editing, the use of music in the film, not to mention some acting which is first rate, add up to an amazing piece of cinema. It's not for the faint at heart. But, most art isn't. Or at least shouldn't be.

Blood + Kisses Coming... When Exactly?

I read a comment on YouTube the other day about the Blood + Kisses trailer, where someone said they thought the whole movie was just a rumor, a myth, a bit of hype used to promote Denise's other projects. I had to laugh, having practically sweat blood to make this movie. Not to mention the fact that the movie's been screened at several film festivals, including winning Best Picture out in Vegas a couple years back.

But I understand and appreciate that person's frustration. I feel it too.

Some of you have taken me to task for being vague in my last post regarding the release date of the movie. Due to circumstances beyond our control (yeah, I know, blah blah blah), we are not able to commit to a date just yet. As soon as we know for certain, I will let you know.

Having said that, we expect to release the movie in late 2008.

Thanks for your continued patience and support : ) G

For a Cold Winter Day

Nothing to do with the movie, per se. Just thought you might enjoy this hot shot of Denise to warm up your cold winter day.

Going Global... One Step At A Time

Ok. It's 2008 and we're still COMING SOON : ) Can't say more than that for now. I wasn't going to even blog again until we release the movie. That's because I didn't want to stoke the fire until we knew just exactly when the release would be. But, last week I installed Google Analytics on the Blood + Kisses site and saw that people are still coming in, looking for any news, looking for updates. So I will continue to trickle out any tidbits I have.

If you're not familiar with Google Analytics, it's a software that lets you track things like number of visits and where the visitors are checking in from. Where are the B+K fans coming from? In this order...

1. US
2. Germany
3. UK
4. France
5. Italy
6. Spain
7. Canada
8. Japan
9. Netherlands
10. China

Denise. Poised to take over the world.

Release Date Pushed to 2008

Sorry, I haven't blogged recently, but we haven't had much to report in recent months. Although the movie is complete, as are all the DVD extras, we are forced to delay the release of the movie yet again, due to logistical issues beyond our control. We plan to release the DVD sometime in 2008. I will try to be better about updates. Believe me I am as frustrated as you that the movie is not out yet and I wish I had more specific information for you. Thanks for your patience. Gregg
