The German DVD cover
Sorry its been so long between entries, but I have been off gallivanting around the world; celebrating a friend's wedding in Spain, meeting my partner's family in Italy and battling through Ramadan in Morocco - but many exciting things have been happening while I've been away!
Firstly, THE BAND will be the opening night film at the Berlin Porn Film Festival. a great honour and I still can't believe it. It makes the slaving my guts out to get the money together to go there extremely worthwhile! So I'll be heading to Berlin at the end of October...so if you are in Berlin on the 22nd October please come and be in the audience. I promise I will be blogging each day that I'm there to keep up to date with all the naughtiness and great erotic delights I will be experiencing!
Until then I am keeping busy subtitling the film in ....english! Yes I know that's strange but I'm guessing that due to the German's being inundated with american accents that the Australian one is quite hard to understand!
Its a rather time consuming and boring task, but I'm extremely grateful that I spent over a week creating a continuity script because all I have to do is cut and paste. However, it is one of those tasks that you wished there was money left in the budget to pay someone else to do! ah the joys of independent film making you need to be multi-skilled and wear all sorts of hats!
Other exciting news is that its official Cult Movies in Germany are distributing "The Band." From what I can gather, it looks like it is being released on 22nd October 2009, but I need to confirm this.
Also, a new company in the US called Breaking Pictures has picked up the US and Canadian rights and will be releasing it on 17th November 2009 - so keep an eye out for it! They are backed by an Aussie, so finger's crossed they might pick up the Australia rights too! It would be a shame never to see the film distributed here - but as I have said before we live in conservative times!
