We've been extended!

Yes, it was an exciting beginning to the week. Divine Manipulation of the Threads had it's "soft" premiere showing on Monday. Between the interviews, running across town, buying 3-D glasses, and freaking the hell out I managed to catch the 1:20pm and the 7:35 show. The house didn't sell out but it was pretty freakin' packed for the first evening show. The laughs poured out in the right spots (thankfully) and everyone seemed to be pleased with the end result. The attendance has been interesting to watch... I recognized familiar faces, I see new faces, and continue to enjoy the tail end of the movie making process: SHARING IT WITH PEOPLE.
This brings me to the big news. Our screenings have been extended an extra week. That's right we'll be showing through this weekend and the show will end on Thursday April 6th. Bring a friend, tell a stranger, come on out this weekend to support local film! Need the times? Go to . We're still playing at Malco's Studio on the Square. 1:20pm, 4:30pm, 7:35pm, and 9:40pm.

There is also a fantastic article that was written last week by John Beifuss of the Commercial Appeal. You can read it here.,1426,MCA_15400_4565025,00.html

There is also a fantastic article by The Daily Helmsman (U of M paper) that can be found here:

My good friend Stone Free Joey aka Forrest Pruett also shot some interview questions by me this week that can be found here:
I'm a bit long winded... even when writing... or especially when writing...

There will be more updates as we get them. It's been a crazy week and I'm trying to hold on as tight as I can.

the home stretch the hamstrings...

Okay, we've worked out some of the Rusted Sun Films magic to make sure that we've got a great theater to screen the premiere of our newest film adventure, Divine Manipulation of the Threads. Malco Studio on the Square has been gracious enough to offer four days of screentime for all of your viewing pleasure. Now, it is a Monday through Thursday screening. I realize that the majority of us work the M-F/9-5. So, go see the 7pm or 9pm show some night. Or if you work nights... there are two matinee shows per day. Yeah... four shows a day... four consecutive days. Rock the house, I know I will be.

We will more than likely have a night of reverie and drinks after the Monday night premiere show... but I've got to work in the morning... you can imagine the dragging of ass that will follow such said events. We will probably repeat the free flowed drinking spectacle after Thursday night's showing at Dish (located at the corner of Cooper and Young St. in midtown)... so come join the series of after-parties with us won't you? Members of the cast and crew will more than likely be attending several of the shows and we will be out in force on Monday and Thursday evening. Please invite your friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, complete strangers, a girl/guy you've got your eye on, people that need a good laugh... you are guaranteed a good time. If there are still 11x17 posters around, get some signatures... they might go for something on Ebay someday.
There is still work to be done on the post. I've got to edit together the documentary addition for the DVD pressing (sorry, we won't have DVDs available at the premiere). So the work is never done. However, we might be able to take a breather in the near future.
Show the love/Share the love.
