As most of you know, by now, AUTUMN is being represented by Spotlight Pictures. Renegade chose them, out of quite a few companies who were interested, because they are incredibly cool and they get it. They understand the business and they understand the nature of AUTUMN. Renegade is extremely happy and excited about the partnership with Spotlight and we only see good things ahead. They just finished introducing us at AFM (American Film Market)in California and our next stop is the EFM (European Film Market) in Berlin in February. We had a great presence at AFM, which garnered a lot of interest and right now we are crazy, crazy busy trying to get everything delivered, and there is a lot to deliver.
The future looks incredibly good for AUTUMN but we cannot make anything public until the paperwork is signed and delivered. But there is some news we can leak, for the fans who have stuck it out with us, Steven Rumbelow is planning on putting a DVD together with extras just for the fans. This will be a limited edition DVD and only available for a certain amount of time. Steven is extremely busy getting everything together for Spotlight so that they can sell the shit out of our film, but as soon as he recovers and gets some development done for his next two films, he will be able to give me an update about the AUTUMN Fan DVD.
We appreciate that you have stuck with us. With low budget films, there is not as much money to get things delivered at a rapid pace as with bigger budget films, therefore we are forced to go a bit slower. Also, keep in mind that from start to finish, it takes the big guys about 3 to 4 years to get a film out. They take a lot of time in development and prep. We were able to start production in less than a year from beginning of development, which is extremely quick. The big guys also have their own distribution companies, so they are able to distribute it more quickly when the film is completed. Hopefully that helps put things into perspective.
Everyday we are getting closer and trust me, we are working hard to bring this to you. This has been a production that has happened with a lot of good fortune in terms of the actors we were able to get and some of the production values we were able to get and it has been a real pleasure to be part of this film. I can't wait to see the reactions from the fans.
