Coming off the heels of last week's premiere of FALLING OUT, we are here to announce yet another premiere! This time it is for our second film of the year, HOW MUCH. We worked on this one for a while, slowly chipping away at it. I think it turned out pretty great and we recently confirmed that we will be returning to the First Friday Film Festival in Kansas City to screen it. Our first experience at the festival this January was fantastic and we can't wait to see what other great films also play this time around. The date is September 7th and it will once again be taking place at the MTH Theater in Crown Center. The lobby opens at 6:30 and the show starts around 7:30. Come check it out if you're in the Kansas City area. All of us should be there and we would love to enjoy the film with all of you!
I should also note that the online release will be happening at a later time. Probably in November. We're still deciding that. We have a few extras that we want to put together before then.
So we just released a whole bunch of things. Here is a post playing catch up!
Most important is the release of our new short film, FALLING OUT! On Tuesday, we had a premiere via livestream, which was pretty fun. Those who stuck around got to see the companion short that we shot along side this one. The film itself is available on our website, HERE. You can also access the bonus feature package by giving $1 or more on VHX. The package includes a bonus short, a 20-minute behind the scenes roundtable and the original scripts.
Speaking of VHX, the 5th Anniversary Edition of BRIMSTONE TERRACE came out on the 23rd. It is also sitting on VHX for $1 and there is a good amount of content on there. All profits from both of these things go straight to the budget of LEFT HOOK.
For those who would be interested, we have been updating our backers over on the Indiegogo page as production has progressed. We're making lots of progress, slowly but surely. Anyway, the reason I bring this up is because we have also been posting behind the scenes videos every month so far. We started the process about 6 months ago. So now we want to start making those videos public.
If you want to see everything six months ahead of time, you can check out the Support page on the Left Hook website. Otherwise, we'll be releasing the old videos each month from here on out.
This first one is from a while back. It covers the early voice acting process and how we started the project off. Not all of them are podcasts like this. We just thought it would make for a good introduction.
PODCAST: Speaking of podcasts, we released an episode a week or two ago for the films of Isao Takahata. The episode features Chris, Beth and I. The next one will be coming out in a week or so, so stay tuned.
Anyway, I think that is all the news we've got for you. There will be more big updates coming soon.
