Retire? You're about to get a promotion!
This is Jane. Well, I am incredibly pleased to be able to finally say out loud: we have distribution.
First details, then gushing.
Our distributor is a new company called Polychrome Pictures. RED DOORS will be the second film they distribute. The first is ON THE OUTS, last year's Slamdance award winner which will be in theaters in just a few short weeks. RED DOORS is tentatively scheduled to be theatrically released on April 7. Cities to be determined but will likely include New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Our DVDs should be out by year's end and will be distributed through Warner Home Video.
Wow. It's hard to believe that this journey has lasted over two years... fast by indie film standards, but still a good chunk of time. It's a big sigh of relief for us too, since embarking on an independent film is always a bit of a gamble. Sure, we knew that the script was great, our cast was phenomenal, and every member of our crew top notch (not to mention the brilliant and disarmingly attractive producers). But still, the distribution world is a finicky beast and we had the misfortune of neglecting to cast any penguins, giant apes, or gay cowboys (ah, hindsight is 20/20).
So now begins the real work: the ramp-up to theatrical distribution. Georgia, Mia, and I have been working non-stop through the holidays coordinating trailer editors, poster designers, and publicists. Since our film is coming out in early April, everything should have been done two months ago and now we find ourselves double-timing it to make up for lost time.
We're really jazzed though. And because we know you all are just hanging on our every word, we're going to blog frequently to give you a behind-the-scenes look at preparing a film for theatrical release. It'll be indie rather than textbook but that just makes for great drama, no?
So stay tuned and tell all your friends that three crazy chicks will soon be bringing their little bundle of joy to a theater near you.
