Update on Multiplatform Release 26 November 2014
I wanted to update you all on what we have managed to achieve with our Multiplatform Release this far.
We now have a trailer thanks to The Trace House – www.vimeo.com/ondemand/sundaythefilm
For the release on the 7th of December we have secured 21 screens across NZ, two airlines (Jetstar and Air NZ), Rialto Channel are our TV partner, and the head of Apple Australisia recently contacted us excited about our release strategy, wanting to help us with marketing and selling the film on iTunes in Aus and NZ...and potentially beyond. For Apple to contact us is quite exciting, and a good sign we think. We are also in discussion with retailers for our DVD who are interested in our plan, but until that point the DVD can be purchased on our website.
We believe there is a real business model behind this type of release for indie filmmakers, and we will be sure to share our learnings.
Flicks did a great piece on the film and the release today – http://www.flicks.co.nz/blog/amazing-interviews/romance-christchurch-piracy-and-a-movie-called-sunday/
And we have a few exciting interviews lined up in the coming weeks before our release on the 7th, along with some other exciting partner announcements.
Tickets for our premiere in Auckland, along with preview screenings in Wellington and Christchurch are now available from our website – www.sundaythefilm.com
As part of our commitment to helping the city of Christchurch recover, $1 from every ticket sold at the Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch Premiere Events will go to the Christchurch branch of the White Ribbon Trust. On that note, check out our photos on social media today supporting White Ribbon Day - https://www.facebook.com/sundayafilm and https://twitter.com/SundayFilmNZ
Also we have decided to donate 10% of the film’s overall profit to Gap Filler as a way of showing our ongoing support.
You should have received an email detailing your reward, if you have any questions you can contact us anytime through the website www.sundaythefilm.com
Finally please do not forget – you helped make all this happen
