Sidewalk, etc.

It's official. Interplanetary will screen at the 2009 Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival. It will be good to screen a feature in the ol' hometown again (it's been almost five years since Hide And Creep premiered at Sidewalk '04).

Speaking of Hide And Creep, the new DVD (the "special edition") isn't coming out 'til October, but I have to get the new master/artwork/etc. sent off on Monday. So I'm a little under-the-gun.

I'm doing my best to put some cool bonus material together for the new Hide disc. So far, I have good-to-high-quality versions of the four "classic" Crewless short movies, a never-before-heard commentary track with random (and drunken) crewmembers, a remastered version of the trailer, and some DVD-ROM content (including screenplays, a press kit, and the barely-released soundtrack album [as MP3s]). And Kyle, Michael, and Chuck stopped by tonight to record a new actor commentary track.

I'll post the full list of extras and specs after I get the master done and in the mail.

Even the menu screens are going to be awesome on this thing, as they're being created by Kevin Powell. Kevin is a superstar designer and has worked on several big-time DVD releases (including the recent Weinstein picture Fanboys and the first season CSI DVDs).

Monday, July 20, 2009's full of stars.

And the day just keeps getting better.

Check it out: our first 5-star review.

David Cornelius, writing for, says Interplanetary is "...what all B-movies should want to be: audacious, intelligent, and start-to-finish entertaining, a slice of genius standing in bold defiance of the budget."

It is a glorious day.

...rising from the grave.

I've been getting things together for the new Hide And Creep DVD release (looking like early October at this point). Last night, I cleaned up the trailer (originally cut by Mr. Adam Wingard).

More Hide And Creep news soon...

I heart critics.

The first couple of reviews of the current (and mostly finished) cut of Interplanetary have popped up on the internets.

Our old pal T.L. Bugg at The Lightning Bug's Lair says Interplanetary is one of the best films he's seen in a while.

Over at, Steve Anderson calls the flick "groundbreaking" and "chance-taking."

Check out the links for the details. Many thanks to Mr. Bugg and Mr. Anderson for watching and writing!
