Welcome back everyone, and welcome to any new subscribers!
We're now back on British soil, returning froim Paris a little later than planned, we had a last minute stop off in Amsterdam, lots of meetings re: future films and distribution talks with sales agents, all good stuff. I ran a 10K and Half Marathon for charity whilst in Paris so I'm very achey but we achieved so much whilst over there, so it was a fantastic trip.
We have been through all 7ype Perk deliveries and by now you should all have had your confirmation emails and PDF receipts from either myself or Gabbi. We had a surge on orders and it took us MANY long hours to get everything sorted, fantastic that so many of you are using your 7ype coins effectively and getting to support our films - a huge thank you
to everyone taking part.
We have a big backlog of emails and DMs from when we were away, many apologies for the delay. We are slowly getting through everything. Unfortunately the phoneline and internet connection in our new office has been put back til the 18th October becuase they are upgrading the line in the building to have high speed Fiberoptic cable. Its frustrating to have this wait before Gabbi and Matt can start with us full time, but you'll start seeing more email updates from Gabbi part time as she is still learning the ropes of the business in the meantime round my house when she gets the chance.
The meetings at Disney went very well and we scouted some really exciting locations and sets - I'm very excited about the possibilities and can't wait to show you guys, but of course very strict stuff until contracts are fully negotiated.
Please note: Anyone wanting to support The Perfect Love Song
) these are literally your last few hours to do so
, tomorrow we are "picture locking" the final edit with everyone's names in the credits etc. ready to send to Amazon for Prime delivery, and to the DVD and Blu-Ray companies.
Technically we originally put the last dates to support as the 27th, but we've extended it a couple of days as we notice we had some email support queries asking how or where to support, so we've extended it by a couple of days to give everyone a fair chance. The Perfect Love Song
is now ready for release and will be ready to watch as soon as it is approved by the distributors, hopefully in the next week or two. Everyone's coins for this film will then be returned, along with deliveries of perks
The deadlines to support other films under our current roster (http://7ype.com/films/current
) will be extended, and another new film will be replacing The Perfect Love Song
, (tba watch this space! ;) )
The next film to get a release after TPLS will be I'm Still Here
, so everyone supporting the film with your 7ype coins should get them refunded pretty quickly - its an excellent film from the super talented Kris Smith - check out the film at http://7ype.com/films/imstillhere
and consider dropping it some 7ype!
More exciting news, 7ype will be representing at the BAFTA Cymru Awards 2017
(Cymru is Welsh for Wales, BAFTA is the British Academy Awards) next week, look out for pictures of myself and Gabbi on the red carpet! We have VIP tickets and will be at both the champagne reception and the after party, and this is always an amazing opportunity to network with celebrity actors and get them onboard for future projects!
has finally accepted our company application and listed 7ype as an approved Scorecard production company (http://www.imdb.com/company/co0663535
), and The Perfect Love Song
is the first credit (as its releasing first) so we can add all your credits to it, these should start appearing in the next few days, and the next lot of films will be added to 7ype's IMDb page as well.
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)
