Life, Chaos and Inspiration

Ant wrote a guest blog post for the Hollywood Journal

A  baby sleeps in warm amniotic fluid, cushioned from the world. It’s safe here, and the child is peaceful. Music seeps in from the outside – the baby wakes and kicks with excitement. This is as close to experiencing zero gravity as he’ll ever get. Fittingly, the track is Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”

You can read it here.

 

 

Deep Breath…

Three and a bit years ago, Sloane U’Ren Neely and I sold our home in Twickenham to follow the dream of making our own movie. It’s just sunk in that in one weeks time we will be in LA for the red carpet premiere. I suddenly feel rather (very) nervous!

Set in the 1920s/30s and filmed in Cambridge, England, Dimensions is about a scientist who is obsessed with revisiting a moment from his childhood. We worked with an amazing cast and crew and have been lucky enough to win several Best Film awards at festivals around the world.

We don’t have a huge PR team or a ton of money to promote the film – so we’re hoping you good people out there might help us spread the word.

Tickets for our US screenings are here:http://filmfestivalflix.com/film/dimensions-a-line-a-loop-a-tangle-of-threads/
You can pre-order DVDs in the UK here:http://www.moviemail.com/film/dvd/Dimensions/

All the information on where you can get the film, book and soundtrack worldwide is here (but please note, our DVD/VoD/Online release is Oct 18th so some links won’t work yet) http://blog.dimensionsthemovie.com/buyrent/ - please bookmark!

Ok. Deep breath. I’m going to hit post now. Here goes…no really I’m going to do it…I am, I tell you…oh shi…

  • Emailing people you think might be interested about the screenings/VoD release
  • Facebooking/tweeting, etc., about the screenings/VoD release
  • Liking/sharing/commenting on our facebook page – it makes our posts much, much more visible. https://www.facebook.com/dimensionsthemovie
  • Letting us know if you have any blog/journalist, etc., contacts who might be willing to write about the film.

Thank you so much!!

Love from,

U.S. release news!

Very excited to announce – Dimensions has been picked up for a limited theatrical US release, plus DVD, iTunes, Netflix, Hulu etc. We will let you know dates as soon as we know.

Please, please share this – it is incredibly hard for indiefilms to get a theatrical release, so we need help to spread the word!

Thanks,

Dimensions in Athens and a package in the post…

Making (and promoting!) a film is a huge undertaking. We knew it would be hard – but I am not sure Sloane and I quite realised what the scale would be. One of the things that makes it all worth while is having audiences enjoy the film  - and we’ve been lucky enough to have people all over the world watch Dimensions.  The next screenings are in Athens, Greece, where Dimensions will play three times over the next few days as part of the SFF-rated ATHENS Film Festival. If you know anyone in Athens, please let them know about the screenings.

It’s always nice to get a parcel in the post, and today’s was particularly good to receive.  It was from the Fargo Film Festival in North Dakota and contained a really nice letter, plus some very cool awards!

We are really proud of what the team behind Dimensions has achieved – we had an amazing cast and crew, and all of these awards are because of their hard work, skill and dedication to filmmaking.

Thanks,

Ant and Sloane x

Best Cinematography award for Simon Dennis

It has been an exciting few weeks for us – some things we can tell you about, some…not so much (yet).

Simon Dennis, our Director of Photography (DP, or DoP – depending where you are in the world), was awarded ‘Best Cinematography’ for his work on Dimensions at the Fargo Film Festival. It’s a well deserved award for a fantastically talented man. Festival co-chair Brittney Goodman spoke to the press about Dimensions, and here is what she said…

“My favorite film of the festival is the beautifully filmed, scripted, and acted ‘Dimensions,’ which is a time travel romance with some steampunk elements.”

Matt McGregor (Narrative Features Jury Chair) added -

“‘Dimensions’ was well loved by our committees and a crowd favorite.”

Meanwhile, we’ve been recording a director & screenwriter commentary for the DVD. We asked for questions on twitter and facebook, as we recorded, and answered them. It was a really fun way to involve the audience with the commentary. We’ve got a few bonus extras coming up as well – but I can’t tell you about them just yet.

Plenty more happening – we’ll announce things as soon as we are allowed to.

As always, sincere thanks for your help and support.

Best,

Ant and Sloane x
