We've been getting a lot of requests for updates on The Unbelievers, so here is a small (albeit, very small) report on the current situation.
We are still pounding out the details of distribution. While we are smaller "indie" film company, we have actually had some very decent offers for world-wide distribution and we are trying to come to the best arrangement for the largest possible reach for the film. Regardless of which way we go, this will certainly include iTunes and the other video-on-demand providers, as well as DVD, etc. We are also striving to ensure a theatrical run (probably only in select cities) later this year. We will also be showing in a number of film festivals around the world later in 2013. Again, still working out the final details with festivals, but we will announce as soon as we can.
One thing I think we can safely share is that the DVD extras are going to be very cool. We have about an hour of extended interview footage (not in the film) with Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman, Woody Allen, Tim Minchin, Ian McEwan.... and all the other folks that were nice enough to lend their voices to the movie. On top of that, there are about 15 minutes of deleted scenes and a 10 minute "behind-the-scenes" documentary that we have put together while all of this "negotiating" has been going on. It has more than a few fun moments that we weren't able to fit into the film, but we are glad they will get seen as bonus features.
I wish we could say more, but there isn't really much more to say, right now. We are playing the waiting game too. All we can say is a sincere THANK YOU to everyone for hanging in there. We wish we could speed things along, but, we too are at the mercy of the powers that be.
Keep the faith. :) More soon.
Director, The Unbelievers
