Today we are finishing our kickstarter to Help The Selling Get A Limited Theatrical Release.
The outpouring of support has been overwhelming and wonderful! Super huge thanks to all our backers and anyone who shared the project over the last 30 days. We are blubbering.
Because of those wonderful backers we are going to be able to give The Selling a limited theatrical release. This does two things. First it's awesome and fun and it's the way movies are made to be seen. Second it gives the movie better placement on venues like iTunes.
The other thing that helps with iTunes is reviews and ratings. If you've seen the movie and you have iTunes it would be amazing if you could take a second and rate the movie on it's preorder page.
You are our marketing team. You are the people that tell the aggregators like iTunes and Amazon what is good and what deserves to be seen. This is what has the potential to change the world of entertainment. It's you!!!
If you haven't already also like the movie on Facebook to keep up with all the exciting stuff that's going on!
One of those things will be smashing a pie into Gabriel Diani's face because young filmmaker Pierre Schantz made this video.
Let's Get Gabriel!

Last week the lovely Cindy Marie Jenkins had the also lovely Caroline Sharp and I over to sit in separate rooms on different computers in a massive point of google+ missing hangout (point being missed by both Caroline and my internet connections which are time warped to 1997 and reject such newfangled concepts as "streaming" and "video"). We talked about The Bechdel Test and how it applies to film, plays and us.
Sorry for the sound issues. We're still working out the system. But there has been some talk of us continuing to blab about these and related issues as we couldn't shut up.
If you're not familiar with the Bechdel test Feminist Frequency has a great little explanation.
While we make the point over and over again that the Bechdel test is a tool to look at groups of movies and not individual films here is a list for you to check on individual movies.
Here is a great article that will refute all your "well but's" http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest?from=Main.TheBechdelTest
10 points to anyone who counts the number of dog barks in our hangout.

This project is cool. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kineticcreatures/kinetic-creatures
Not only are these animals super cute, but they walk too.
Watch their funding video to see them move. Amazing!
They have 26 days to go.
