Welcome back everyone, and welcome to any new subscribers!
So this is a big email, lots of news! Apologies that its been 10 days since sending an email or updating our Twitter, completely my fault, I changed the password because of a security scare, and then whilst being away filming I couldn't remember the new passwords! Its been a really productive week though, lots of exciting news later over the next few days!
First though, the most important thing: Hopefully most of you noticed that as of earlier this week, the website film section was updated with a whole tonne
of content. All 23 current films (and some other future projects) are now detailled on the site.
You can read all about them at: http://7ype.com/films
Quick technical note: Bare in mind that if you have been regularly visiting our website, your computer or phone may have archived an older version of the site to speed up loading, so you won't see the updates. This confused a few people last week when some people saw the updates and others thought they weren't live... to fix this issue, you can clear your cache/temporary internet files, or hold down the Shift key when refreshing the page, to force it to load new versions of everything. The front page is still a temporary holding page (updating with amazing new video in next day or so, details below!) but the "films" section has about 20 new full pages of details, trailers, pictures and all kinds of cool stuff, and several sections have more details and cool interactive stuff, like our FAQ section of the Contact Us page. (http://7ype.com/contactus/
)You can now use your 7ype coins to support the first 10 films!
The first 10 films available for support are the ones either closest to completion, or the ones scheduled to be released soonest. There's some really nice bonus perks available, including limited edition DVDs and Blu-Rays, Soundtrack albums, signed posters, and of course getting your name in the credits. Some films even have UK premiere/screening tickets available. More perks will be added as time goes by, including some USA screening events for the bigger films
Its easy to support the films you are interested in. Each film has its own unique ETH adrdress, listed on the support link on each films page, which also lists the perks available, and how many coins are required. Just chose the perks you want, send your coins to the relevant ETH address, then fill in the order form at http://7ype.com/films/support
to let us know where to send your perks. Don't forget that unless you have contacted us directly, we have literally no idea who has bought coins, Ethereum transactions are anonymous - but we'll need an email address, postal address and name to send the relevant perks!
The films you can currently support are:Silence
(check out the cool CGI teaser / mood trailer!)I'm Still here
(full theatrical trailer viewable!)The Perfect Love Song
(full theatrical trailer!)Live Justine
(VERY NSFW teaser trailer!)Night of the Living 3d Dead
(early teaser trailer!)Boogaloo Exotica

Also, several people have mailed us asking for recomendations of previous films from our filmmakers that are out now and available to watch, so we have listened and added an updated section.Films you can watch right now on VOD or DVD (depending on country, sadly):The Last Scout

Hooligans at War
This email is starting to become overly long, but a quick update on the front page of the site: Basically we were offered a fantastic opportunity to visit our regular visual effects and audio teams in London this week, so we used the time there to vastly improve our planned pitch videos - tomorrow you will see our incredible new 3D CGI 7ype Logo to be used at the front of films, it looks amazing, and also I'm happy to say that we got the famous "Epic Trailer Voice" guy to do us a hilarious and ultra pro sounding voiceover for our videos. Yes, we had to delay the launch video by a week, but it looks and sounds incredible, and may even go viral! :)
I'll update you all again tomorrow with all the exciting stuff we've done this week, and our amazing new company logo. I know I've already mentioned it, but just dropping it again, becuase we are so excited about it, it is literally perfect. We even got the opportunity to preview it on a full cinema screen in London, and I can confirm that it looks amazing! Exciting times, and makes everything feel more "real" :D
Many thanks again to everyone for the continued support, and I hope you all have a great day!
All the best, Samuel Victor (twitter: @samuelvictor @7ypecoin)
