Thriller Theater!

Added 22 June 2016
At the moment, since about a week ago, our movie might not be available for streaming on Amazon because they are converting all of the CreateSpace assets to a new format and service. The conversion took a few days, but now we’re on the hook to provide all-new artwork because the artwork we originally provided no longer meets their requirements, and we need to figure out how to provide a standalone caption file (the movie is captioned on the DVD). This might take some time (a lot of our artwork assets were lost in a hard drive crash in 2012), but the good thing is that we think the movie will also be available streaming on once everything is done, which is wonderful because it hasn’t previously been available in the UK. HOWEVER, the DVD is still available, and you’ll want that anyway – it’s vastly preferred over the streaming or download versions, because of the ton of extras that are only available on the DVD.

Sorry. The site has been down for…we aren’t even sure how long. WordPress problems, finally resolved. Most things are working again, some aren’t. But we really needed to get the site back up so we could share the links to order or watch the movie! DVD (with tons of extras) available NOW, and the movie is also available for streaming or download (movie only, no extras), all from Amazon. Check out the info on the new “Get It!” tab.

We’ve been working on a DVD release that we anticipate will be available by mid-November. In the meantime, we deeply apologize for not making regular announcements here on the website, instead relying on Facebook. We’ve had TWO film festival acceptances (and subsequent screenings): GenCon Film Festival, and the ChiCon Film Festival at the World Science Fiction Convention. We’re not done sending to festivals, though! We’ll also be having a screening at the Chicago TARDIS convention, which this year is featuring our star actress Sophie Aldred as a guest. And as a last comment, we’re all wishing director Mike Olson recovers quickly and healthily from his illness.

A bunch of information to cover here. The premiere at the Portage was great! Appreciation for the movie seemed to be unanimous, and for that we are very grateful and encouraged! The Kickstarter campaign was successful, and one of the rewards for all pledges was a thank you list, so here it is, a great big THANK YOU to the following wonderful people who made the screening happen without draining our wallets!

Director Michael S. Olson will be interviewed on the Nick Digilio show on WGN AM 720 on Tuesday, September 6 at approximately 12:30 am (just to be clear, that’s more colloquially known as very late Monday night). They will chat about the movie, its origins, production, and upcoming premiere… which, by the way, is less than a week away! Remember, the Kickstarter project concludes Monday at 11:59 pm (about a half hour before the WGN radio interview), and the premiere is Thursday. See you there!

Also, check out some new videos and music clips put up on our new YouTube page.

We have launched a Kickstarter (crowd-funding) project to help us pay the theater rental costs for our premiere screening (details below). Please consider donating and, by all means, spread the word! Kickstarter is all-or-nothing funding, if we don’t reach the $800 goal, we get $0. We’ve got a few pledges already but have a long way to go!
