Happy New Year Kids!

Hey, hey, hey!

Well it is a new year and it is a new decade. The perfect time for AUTUMN to explode. We are still unable to say who is picking it up, but we will have news on US and UK DVD releases for AUTUMN very soon now. We hope by February or March. Papers are still being signed. Very exciting.

I look at the last post and see the month of August in the date and it seems so weird to me that it was so long ago. It seems like just last week. Well, the time...she still moves, and so does the blogroll. We would like to be a part of that again. We have a few things we would like to share with you in the next few days. Some of you may have already seen them if you are a member of our Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/pages/Autumn/53825378831. We will be posting new reviews, a look at the different DVD covers being used in Europe and Asia, and some new behind the scenes pics.

The AUTUMN resolution for the New Year is more content to keep you going until the official DVD releases in the US and UK.

It's going to be a great year!

Reviews and news

Hello all,

We've had some great reviews for AUTUMN come in. Closest to our hearts are JohnnyHorror at Brutal As Hell who gave a review fit for a cult classic, http://www.brutalashell.com/2009/07/film-review-autumn/, and Rich Wolfe's concise review at ObscureHorror.com http://www.obscurehorror.com/autumn.

We also have some really good news that I just can't spill right now. But I can tell you that all of our hard work with this film is starting to pay off.

Thanks for sticking with us everybody! Please remember that AUTUMN has not been released yet and that any downloads you see on the internet or any DVDs you see in video stores are illegal copies. Not only that, they are unfinished versions of the film. We don't know how this happened, but we would appreciate if you spread the word about this. Thanks!

We'll Meet Again...

So, a long overdue update:

We have sent out some screeners to a few reviewers and we will be sending a few more out over the next couple of weeks, the final sound mix still needs to be done, but it is basically the finished, authorized version of the film that the reviewers will be viewing. So those should be surfacing soon. We also hope to have news soon of future screenings and release dates for other countries!

Below is a video that Steven Rumbelow put together as a wave goodbye to David Carradine.

Steven's Response

The phone has been ringing off the hook. People have been wanting Renegade's and Steven's reaction to the passing of David Carradine. Steven decided to write up the following response for everybody.

There is a huge gap left by David Carradine’s departure from the planet. In the 16 months since he finished working on "Autumn" we have been collaborating on a character for him in our next film “Over the Edge”. We developed an incredible part for him: Duncan. A character who turned out being an anarchic mix of Irish/American descent who is a compelling mixture of Shaman, concert pianist, poet and crime boss. He understood the Shakespeare, the Bukowski and the Beckett in the script. Same way he understood the Bergman in “Autumn”. How we find someone else with that kind of understanding, with that kind of range is daunting.

His performance of Philip in “Autumn” is a devastating 12 minutes in a style you have never seen him deliver before. It proved to me what I suspected, which was that he had an amazing range. As a result he was in the works for at least another four roles in Renegade productions: Duncan in “Over the Edge”, a vaudevillian performer, Laughing Leslie Pockets, in “CafĂ© X”, Father Mapple in “Moby Dick” and the senile Ivanovich in “Obsessions”. We also even put together a plan to finish Orson Welle's last film together. A man who has an understanding of those roles and the ability to fit them into my slightly surreal landscapes is almost irreplaceable. Replacing David for his acting capabilities is going to be very difficult but even more difficult is replacing David the kid. The kid that I and the other kids in my company get to kick around with on set and off. The kid that everyone loved.

I don’t know what his family and Annie must be going through, but these stories around his death sound so wrong and it must be horrible for them to hear. I dropped an email to Annie, his wife, and to Chuck, his manager, affirming my support for their beliefs regarding David’s untimely death. I don't think that it is respectful to give the auto erotic idea any energy...unless it is to laugh at the idea. The suicide idea is all wrong. It could not be. There is no way David took that way out. He was too alive. We were talking just two Saturdays ago… he was excited about the script and all the work he had coming up. He was in great shape enjoying his drive… loving the weather…. top down… coastal road…. late for an event, as usual. Smile. He was happy and full of life. There is no way he hung himself. He was way too much of a rebel to take that way out. He was way too much of a Buddhist to take that way out. It is going to be very hard to determine much forensic truth in an environment like Bangkok but I do hope they can figure out what happened. My suspicion is foul play.

I really hope people get to see his performance in “Autumn”… everyone talks about how good he was in it… including at the theatrical sneak preview last Saturday night. It was his last Canadian film and it showed what an incredible range he had when juxtaposed with his performances of stature: Bill, Woody and Caine.

We talked about making Orson Welles' last film in 2010. That would have been a creative riot. We were going to have so much fun. We were supposed to do Christmas together this year. I miss him. He was like another kid in the schoolyard. I’m really, really sad. We sorta recognized the rebel brat in each other the first time we met. There was definitely that recognition… he took one look, put his hands on his hips and said, “Uh-oh this is going to be good, Orson.” I miss him. It’s like a light just went off in the world.

Goodbye David Carradine

This is truly a sad day. David Carradine has been found dead in his hotel room in Thailand where he was working on a film. We feel true loss today as David was not only an incredible actor, but an incredible man full of remarkable stories and unbelievable life. He was only on set a few days, but that was enough for the director Steven and David to click and they became fast friends. They were even collaborating on a film together and both were very excited to do it. It is truly a sad day today.

David, you will be missed by many and we would like to express our sincere condolences to your family. Your presence and talent will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace.
