When I’m not busy taking pictures of dogs or cows, or busy chasing almost three-year-old toddlers around the house, I’m busy making documentaries, and I’m happy to announce my latest film is now avaliable for pre-order on DVD (shipping July 9th). First 100 DVD pre-orders will receive a 11x17 poster signed by myself and co-director Josh Melrod, and designed by the incomparable Joe Lambert. (Bottom image is the poster; top image is the DVD cover, designed by the equally incomparable Gabby Schulz).
Or, if you really don’t feel like waiting for the DVD to arrive, you can get Cartoon College on iTunes right now!
While I’ve got you here, I might as well say that you can always check out my first film, Manhattan, Kansas over on Netflix, or contact me directly to purchase.
This post is about my new documentary… we recently teamed up with Tugg, a new distribution company that works kind of like Kickstarter. Through Tugg, you can bring Cartoon College to your local theater, pretty much anywhere in the U.S. All you need to do is request a screening, select your screening details, and then spread the word. Once a minimum number of people commit to attending, the event will be confirmed, and Tugg will reserve the theater, manage ticketing and ensure delivery of the film. It’s pretty cool and we hope will enable us to reach lots more people.
Our first event is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, January 9th in Burlington, VT, but we have to sell 69 tickets by January 2! If you’re in the area, please support us by joining the event now! And if you’re somewhere else, please encourage all your friends in Burlington to come on out. We’ll be there with CCS founder and cartoonist James Sturm for a Q&A following the show, plus we’ll have some free goodies and a surprise guest or two! We’d love for the show to go on, so your support is greatly needed and appreciated!
Last night Adam Humphreys released Shitty Youth, a 36 minute film about young novelist Zachary German on vimeo through the film’s facebook page. The film follows Zachary for two years following the release of his first novel, “Eat When You Feel Sad,” and features interviews with Tao Lin, Brandon Gorrell, Steve Roggenbuck and David Fishkind.
