In Circumference DVD news: there is now a second release being created. The Crazy 8s, run by Andrew Williamson, had it's final year this year - pending someone volunteering to take over from him. As a final major act to close out his 8 years with his creation, a distribution deal has been reached for a DVD to be mass produced featuring hand-chosen films from the contest's duration. Circumference was chosen to be one of the few included.
Their DVD is being rapidly produced and executed in the next week or two to meet the distributor's deadlines and will be available in a retail outlet sometime soon.
For those who have purchased a DVD from us, fear not: this new DVD will have only the short film along with the other chosen shorts. Our DVD, as mentioned in previous posts, has considerable content included within in for, more than likely, half the price of this forthcoming Crazy 8s one.

Big House felt the story they wrote was a bit too vague now that they have seen it all together and in one piece - so in the interest of overall enjoyment, a bit of rearranging, editing and alternate things were requested. The film was cut by a minute and a bit. the existing score, which was timed to the previous edit, was hacked, cross faded and re-arranged from the existing files to try and best accommodate the new cut. The film will screen this Wednesday at the Westin Bayshore. Tickets can be purchased for alot of money here.

The initial edit for the Lotus Awards introduction film was submitted to Big House this afternoon for feedback before picture lock. Running time is currently around five minutes. Samples from the score will be posted up someplace soon. Additionally, Big House has requested a piece of music to play during the various winner's walk from their table to the podium. That needs to be done very soon.
