Hey friends, Lets just get right to the point.
We know you’re anxious to see the movie and we are really anxious to show it to you. But please keep this in mind that we are two guys with day jobs who made a film about The Melvins. A big studio didn’t make it and we don't have a team of people on hand doing publicity and lining up a worldwide screening in every town and city across the globe. We know you want to have the movie shown in your town and we are slowly trying to get as many screenings out there as possible.
We are extremely proud of this movie and we want it to be seen in a real cinematic environment, because ultimately that is the best way a film should be experienced. We want to have Q+A’s afterwards and meet the fans where possible. It’s been very fulfiling for us to show the movie and see the reaction to it first hand at the handful of screenings we have done so far. It’s as exciting for us as it is for you. We are in correspondence with people everyday about showing the film in theaters and at film festivals, and we will hopefully be able to announce a bunch more screenings starting in October.
We know the people who contributed to the kickstarter want their dvd’s and we promise we are working on it. There is so much extra footage that we want to include on the discs but please realize that this is going to take a little more time than planned. But we will work out a way in early 2017 where the contributors can get an online version of the film to watch.
If you look around at other films that are made, they do not just get put out as soon as the final cut is mixed. If we send it out to everyone right away then it will lose it's value due to online pirating and sharing. This is our prized project that we worked for years to achieve and we don't want to just watch it fall from under our control. We are certainly not cheating anyone out of anything, and everyone will get what they are entitled to, but please be patient and respect what we have achieved upto now.
Thanks so much for your understanding
Bob + Ryan


So does this mean no DVD release this year?

Hopefully not.  A 2018+ release would be ridiculous.

I've been more unplugged than usual, and just heard about the semi acoustic set/Q&A/Colossus of Destiny screening for the Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco this weekend. I'm fucking thrilled to see your work, Idle. Tickets purchased. :cheers:

Got a kick starter email, here's the rundown:

- should be streaming on vimeo for backers soon with download to follow.
- DVD set for the end of may. Pre-orders set but backers get the goods first. Disc 1 = documentary; Disc 2 = 2014 live set, bonus live & interview clips; Disc 3 = unseen interviews, live stuff, bloopers

To add to this, I'm pretty sure the third disc is solely for those who paid quite a bit extra for the box set version of this release.

Sorry for not seeing this earlier. 

We decided that we'd rather get the sound fixed than be able to hit the April date we gave ourselves.  People will remember that we didn't hit our April goal, but we would always remember that we didn't make it sound as good as we possibly could. And having the sound fixed benefits everyone. When we were able to get Kurt to fix it, we jumped on it.

He filmed the sound with his short wave recorder, that's why it needs fixing. His shorts were Oakley cargo, black.

At this point if Vinney's interview isn't a bonus feature, it's a no buy.
