Got 100 clear DVD cases from for about 41 cents each after shipping, tax, etc. A good price, I think, and I'm very impressed with the quality of the cases.

Recommended, if you don't mind buying in bulk.

Also, one of those cases in the photo is stuffed with the "Mark II" festival screener cover art.

Happy Christmas, everybody!

I hope Santa was as good to you guys as he was to me. Check out these awesome retro Star Trek action figures I found under the tree...

Happy Christmas!

Teaser redux.

While our buddy (and Hide and Creep DP) Robb Rugan puts the finishing touches on the "official" Interplanetary trailer (which is awesome--can't wait for you guys to see it), I thought I'd clean up the old "teaser" a bit and post it to Vimeo.

Interplanetary Teaser Trailer

I think the picture quality on Vimeo is a (small) step up from YouTube. You can also view the teaser at Vimeo's site in "HD."

Screener season.

We finally have Interplanetary in good enough shape that I've started submitting to festivals (two so far!). If it's time to send out screeners, that means it is time for DVD and cover art design.

Here's a (grainy) photo of the "Mark I" version of the disc and case that went out to a fest last week...

Props to Ted Speaker, who designed the Interplanetary Corporation "Mars Base Two" logo that inspired the screener artwork.

First screening of 2009.

Looks like the first festival screening of Interplanetary in 2009 will be in Oxford, Mississippi, courtesy of the awesome folks at the Oxford Film Festival.

The festival will be held from February 5 - 8, though I don't yet know which night Interplanetary will be showing. According to Google Maps, the Oxford fest's screening theater is less than three and a half hours from Birmingham, so it isn't too far if any of you hometown folks are interested in driving over.

I believe this will be our last "work in progress" screening of the flick. I'm really excited about the current cut of Interplanetary, and, if it plays well in Oxford, I think we'll call it "locked."

Special thanks to Melanie and Michelle at the Oxford Film Festival for inviting us!
