Sobini Films posted the first trailer for Burning Bright on their site and the film is now expected to come out this summer. From the looks of it, it got its original name back too. There’s no mention of “Ravenous” anywhere in the trailer or on the site.
The trailer can’t be embedded so go to Sobini.com to see it.
In other news, One Night Only has been added to the Worldwide Short Film Festival lineup. The festival runs from June 1 to 6, 2010, in Toronto.
For details, keep an eye on the festival’s official site.
And this is what the Pretty Bird DVD will look like when it comes out in June (click to enlarge):
In one of the gazillion interviews Paul Schneider has done in recent weeks for Bright Star, someone finally thought to ask him about Pretty Bird.
And the news isn’t good.
Your directorial debut “Pretty Bird” got its share of attention when it premiered at Sundance last year, but it left without a distribution deal. What’s going on with it now?
I wish I knew. I don’t know what the status is, but it makes me wonder whether the current film marketplace isn’t one with really sharp elbows, and if there are going to be places for small films that are off the beaten path. I don’t know if the current marketplace is gambling on small films that much anymore. [IFC.com]
Hopefully we’ll see the film before distributors go extinct.
