"Crashing Christmas" Screening a Success
On January 27, Vertov Industries held a screening for their latest
episode of Sleepless entitled "Crashing Christmas". This private
screening was for invited guests only but the turnout was still
greater than expected with around 50 people attending.
The total program for the evening lasted over three hours and included
previews from another indpendent filmmaking group operating in Hawaii
that call themselves "Ground One"
as well as clips from the upcoming movie epic "The Whole Show" from
While "Crashing Christmas" had been given a very limited release prior
to this screening, the version of the movie that was shown this January
was an alternate cut featuring additional footage and alternate takes.
Other differences include improved special effects and a tighter edit
as a whole.
Another first for Vertov Industries this time around was the use of
DVD technology to present the movie. In the week before the screening
was held, the decision was made to make a transfer of the existing movie
from an analog format intoa digital format. So not only was this the
first time a movie was presented in DVD format by Vertov Industries,
"Crashing Christmas" was the first movie by Vertov Industries to be
given the DVD treatment at all. With the experiment a success, expect
to hear about other Vertov Industries filmos being transfered onto
DVD. As always, keep checking back to this website for more details
on this as it happens.
There are tentative plans to release "Crashing Christmas" to the
general public but the venue has not yet been decided.
