“There Was A Young Man With No Head…”

May 18, 2010

Hello Family, Friends, Colleagues and Fans,

BIG News today! Our second film, “BURNING INSIDE” (which just had a hugely successful World Premiere at the Connecticut Film Fest), is NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD and Digital Download through our distributor at Channel Midnight http://bit.ly/BI-CM .

It is now time for us to mobilize our army and find an audience for this film. We hope you’ll help us in that effort.

There are a number of ways to help:

1) Forward this as an e-mail to EVERYONE on your e-mail list. Sure BURNING INSIDE was described as “a raw and grinding midnight movie” (Deadline Magazine) and “A challenging and altogether harrowing experience” (Shock Cinema) but you never know who might appreciate that kind of thing, or forward it on to their friends too. (It was also “highly recommended for lovers of smart films.” (fearzone.com)

2) MAKE MONEY! Become a Channel Midnight / BURNING INSIDE affiliate and earn 10% (almost $2 per DVD!) of every sale made with your personal link! Go here for details: http://bit.ly/CM-Affiliate . If you have a moderately trafficked website, blog, facebook, or twitter this option could be pretty darn lucrative. (make sure to put your affiliate link in this e-mail before you forward it on). (If you need assistance setting up the affiliate program, please e-mail me. I’ll be happy to help.)

3) Quick Copy and Paste for Twitter and Facebook (feel free to replace the link with your affiliate link, or customize however you want):

5) Go to http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MHMU88 and write a review! (It’s amazing how important reviews on Amazon are.)

In short, it’s all about the numbers, the more people that know about it, the more successful it will be.

What the critics have to say about BURNING INSIDE:

“impressive…writer-director Nathan Wrann unleashes an unsettling psychological mystery, imbues his story with a unique look and pace and works wonders… a challenging and altogether harrowing experience for discerning horror fans.”

– Steven Puchalski, SHOCK CINEMA

“BURNING INSIDE is a raw and grinding midnight movie, unsavory grim in parts then slowly contemplative.”

– Marcus Stiglegger, DEADLINE MAGAZINE

“There is an awareness of filmmaking as a storytelling medium at work here that you will not find in a multiplex… A wholly original and daring piece of cinema. It’s rare that acting, cinematography and editing work in such perfect harmony to create something this unique… Highly recommended to lovers of smart films.”

– Greg Lamberson, FEAR ZONE

Great Audiences Make for Great Screenings.

And so the CT Film Fest World Premiere of BURNING INSIDE comes to an end.

I would like to send a HUGE ‘thank you’ to all who attended the screening last night at the Danbury Music Center. By all accounts on my end it was a total success!

The venue was packed (despite the screening being scheduled opposite the CT Film Fest Closing Night PARTY, guaranteeing that most people involved in the fest would NOT be attending our screening! And that we couldn’t attend the closing night party.) with, what can only be described as, the most patient, respectful and tolerant audience I have ever had the pleasure of sitting with. Despite the sub-par conditions assigned to us (the Danbury Music Centre should never be used for screening films, not to mention it was hot as hell in there) the audience settled into their seats and patiently waited as we hooked up the DVD player (The CTFF insisted that I supply a digibeta tape in advance for screening, (which costs approx $500) even though they didn’t have a digibeta deck available. So I had a digibeta tape made (at a cost of $500, because the CTFF said I NEEDED it) and we screened from a (15 cent) DVD on a DVD player THAT I SUPPLIED!) We then had to deal with with technical audio issues.  Apparently, since the first day of the festival the soundboard was hooked up incorrectly. The audio issues were resolved only because I knew there was an audio GENIUS in the audience: Mike Arafeh from Coffeehouse Recording Studio in Middletown, CT stepped up to the plate and delivered when the CT Film Fest failed to supply a technician or representative that could handle audio. Without his involvement it seems unlikely that the screening would have been able to go forward (remember, everyone involved in the fest was at the Closing Night Party… We were, pretty much, on our own, in the dumping ground.). Once the movie began, BURNING INSIDE captured their attention and the audience seemingly held their collective breath from the first frame through the last when the “Burning Inside background drone noise” was finally broken with a huge round of applause! After the movie I, unfortunately, had only the briefest, chance to talk and discuss the film with fans that were very receptive to its…. um…. unique qualities. I would love to continue those conversations so everyone should please feel free to contact me with any and all of your thoughts about it.

Once again THANK YOU ALL for your support!! It is appreciated more than you will ever know. GREAT AUDIENCES MAKE FOR GREAT SCREENINGS!

And as this chapter ends, a new one begins. BURNING INSIDE will be released on DVD soon (release date was moved back to May 18th) and is now available for pre-sale. The DVD contains a 1+ hour long Behind The Scenes documentary (created by Shane Tea French) that is getting rave reviews and is unlike any behind the scenes you’ve ever seen. Make sure to reserve your copy today at http://channelmidnight.com

Now let me get back to work on my next project, codename: “SHUDDER”

PS: If you attended any of the Screenings, Panels or Workshops at the CT Film Fest this weekend I would LOVE to hear about your experiences. Please post them (Good, Bad or Ugly) in the comments section.
