    Hi guys,

    Shameless self-advertising here but I recently uploaded an official site for a short film I made last year in the UK. It's a samurai film using students from a local university - with details relating to the recently released dvd on the page.

    I'm distributing this independently so refunding and re-shipping is likely to cripple me, so please be sure before you buy.

    I have an initial pressing of 25 copies ready for dispatch (just testing the waters before i start buying all the materials in bulk).

    Thanks,
    G.

    Good luck with the project. It must be fun to have a finished product and have something you are proud of, and can build on!

    How long did it take you to make?

    How long is the film?

    We had about 3 days to shoot it all (most of the actors had to return to Japan shortly after filming) and then editing took the best part of 2 months. I financed it myself with the wages from my job - wound up costing a - meagre in terms of filmmaking / excessive in terms of personal wages ツ」1000.

    The film runs for about 21 mins so we've added a few small extras to the dvd to pad it out a bit.

    *2 Audio Commentaries
    *Behind The Scenes Featurette - Duel Sequence
    *Premiere At Chapter Featurette
    *Trailer
    *Stills Gallery (Behind The Scenes)

    So technically - if i were to go down the HKL route of counting an audio commentary as an extra in terms of time then we have about 60mins worth (2 audio comms x 21' and the rest building up the other 20')

    Cheers for your kind words about the project, it was a labour of love for sure - i guess the big fear you have when releasing a project like this is fan reaction - at the end of the day im a fan of this genre and love Japanese cinema but i know for sure i'd approach a film like this with some intrepidation as just a viewer. But so far we've had positive feedback.

    This is a case of "check the dates" , LOL. The original post is 13 years old and the original poster was last here 11 years ago. Wonder if he is still alive ?
