After talking up Love In The Time Of Monsters for over 4 years on this blog, the day has finally come where it is being released into the
wild world. It feels a little bit like raising a child, and now it's going off to college. (Please be nice to it!) Matt, Mike an I did everything we could to make this movie as entertaining as possible, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it. "What can I do to help?" you ask? Well look no further, because we've got you covered!
Here's a checklist of things you can do right now:
1) Go buy a a physical copy on DVD at Amazon, Bestbuy or Barnes & Noble! The DVD has a whole slew of special features, including deleted scenes, bloopers, behind the scenes videos and a commentary track! While you wait for your copy to arrive, you can also download a digital copy at iTunes, Amazon Instant, and VUDU. It's quick and easy, but be aware that the digital copy doesn't come with the special features that are on the DVD!
2) On those same sites, give us a star rating and/or a review! They really help! Why? Because people use star ratings and good reviews to decide if they are going to watch a small independent film like ours.
3) Tell your friends via social media! Link to this blog, directly to the movie on one of the sites above, or to our movie page on Facebook. Word of mouth is the key ingredient in a successful independent movie's stew. I guess you could just tell your friends in person too, if you like 🙂
4) Send us pictures of your DVD when it arrives, you watching the movie, having a viewing party, etc, etc. We want to feature them on the website, blog and Facebook! You can comment below, send an email or post to our Facebook wall.
Whew, is that enough stuff? Seriously though, with your help we can really get the word out and make this movie a success! So much blood, sweat and tears went into this project by so many people. Honestly, the list is so long I don't even know where to start! But if we're lucky, at least some of these folks below might actually get their deferred pay:
