I have had my head down finishing a batch of commercials and working on all the bits and pieces for the release of the Last Ride DVD (released November). Strange that it is still in cinemas around the place but we are working on the DVD. I always thought this kind of thing happend much later, but the lead time is very long for production and distribution.
It's going to be a really sweet 'Filmmakers Edition' package. 2 discs, featuring amongst many things, a great 50 minute behind the scenes docco made by my friends Jono and Tim
, deleted scenes, my short films Cracker Bag
and The Desert
, oh yeah and the film!
Also in the pack will be a 50 page book which I'm almost finished designing (see front cover above) with photographs, a great conversation between screenwriter Mac Gudgeon and novelist Denise Young and some ramblings by me.
I'm off to the Toronto Film Festival next week, where Last Ride will have it's international premiere! Very excited to say the least.
