The Man makes his Nashville Debut
Quick update from Nashville–we premiered the film to two enthusiastic audiences, one on Saturday night and one last night, and it was a thrill to see the film in its final form on the big screen and get the reactions from the audience. Several people came up to us afterwards with stories of their own that related in some way to what was happening in our film. We love that the film was received so warmly and that it provoked so many post-screening conversations. And some of you even became backers after seeing it, and we can’t thank you guys enough.
Now it’s on to London to premiere it to a pure sci-fi audience. Very curious to get that reaction!
Team "Pig" answering questions on the film
Only 56 hours left on our Kickstarter campaign and while we’re very close to our goal, we’re not there yet. We really appreciate the support you all have given to the film. Please pass our campaign on to any friends who might be interested in joining the film. With a last minute push, I know we can get there!

The Man makes his WonderCon Debut
The final mystery is oneself… Henry and Mark are back from their trek to San Francisco’s WonderCon, where The Man made his SF debut and where Henry participated on a very popular panel called, “What’s New In Indie Sci-Fi,” moderated by fellow sci-fi filmmaker DJ Bad Vegan. They debuted a new trailer of “Pig” and Henry discussed the ways that working outside of the Hollywood system allowed them the opportunity to explore new ideas and play with narrative conventions. The Man, replete with his customary (and dare I say, smart-looking) orange Hawaiian shirt, black slacks, plastic ties, and black hood, “assumed the position” throughout the convention hall and out front, as attendees gawked, took pictures, shot video, and posed with our Hero. There’s just something irresistible about a Man in a hood! They designed a four-page mini-Comic Book and placed it in front of The Man, with folks grabbing copies and reading them. At a place as busy and as distracting as WonderCon, with studios and other deep-pocketed companies spending tons of money to get fans’ attention, their little guerilla marketing stunt more than held its own.
The Man will be on the streets of Nashville and London drumming up interest for their screenings there very shortly.
