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.”

Dimensions will also be on VoD in the U.S. on 18th October, and iTunes later in the year.

We don’t have a huge (‘any!’) advertising budget, or PR team behind us, so forgive us for asking for your help.  Would you please consider:

  • Coming to one of the screenings (and maybe bringing some friends!)
  • 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,

Sloane and Ant x

Are some unscrupulous movie types ‘gaming’ rotten tomatoes?

Question:  Are some unscrupulous movie types ‘gaming’ Rotten Tomatoes?

I imagine a lot of people check out Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB scores for films they are considering watching.  The *huge* difference in critics scores vs audience scores for the new Die Hard, makes me wonder.

IMDB 6/10
Metacritic 29/100
Rotten Tomatoes:  16% critic score, 82% audience score.

Scanning twitter, FB and Reddit post about the film – it seems to be getting a fairly universal panning.  I haven’t seen it, so can’t comment.

New apps that sort your Netflix cue by Rotten Tomatoes score means that a good score is undoubtedly worth $.

Any thoughts?

Want more than Paranormal Transforming-Battleships 5

Sure, we understand – sometimes simple stories and things exploding are all you want to see.  But all the time?  It’s like eating fast food for every meal, sometimes you just want something a little more…nutritious.

So, if you crave story…imagination…a challenge…something that actually requires your attention, search out some of the amazing independent films, bands, authors, etc., that are out there.  We’ve met so many talented people on our journey – artists with a huge amount to share, but who are being ignored (outspent!) by the fast-food end of the media industry.  It’s a win-win situation – you’ll see and hear things that inspire and provoke-thought, and they’ll gain an audience.

Go on, ‘hug an indie’.

Thanks,

Ant and Sloane

P.S. If you are one of those people who want more, please take a few seconds to share our teaser/trailer.

Thanks for all the support!

Best,
Ant and Sloane
