Here is the plan for the HSM release


This Friday the 8th I will officially announce the release date of June 15th on youtube and stuff... I will also announce the affiliate program and encourage peeps to sign up... I will email affiliates and give them access to the HSM press images and the official M dot Strange font made from my handwriting so they can create their own marketing materials in other languages and maintain strange consistency ^ ^

On June 15th the official HSM trailer will be launched and with that the film will be made available for sale via digital download on youwilldieinside.com which will be a very simple HSM store site... heartstringmarionette.com will be the films full site with forum + chat room and all that stuff...

Also on the 15th I will put the "how to" site online that I created that describes how to do the same type of digital release I'm doing... complete with encoding info, site setup and all that stuff...

The film will be released with an included english subtitle file... and I will include a note and an additional text file for those that wish to translate it into their language...there will be a thread on the forum for HSM subtitle peeps...

I probably forgot to mention some things but yep that's the plan right now ^_^

  1. It has been awhile since I've commented here but I've been watching this blog since you switched from your wats blog and it almost feels unreal that this film is finally about to be released! I had told myself I'd wait for the dvd release but chances are at this point I will be getting it digital! You've put so much work into this! Congrats on everything Mdot you earned that! I can't wait to see what four years has produced :3

    and thankyou for the how to! That will probably be a world of help for me. I want to make my own film too!

  4. Very cool. I don't mean to overstate it, but it is actually pretty revolutionary. It could actually help bring about a kind of revolution with regards film distribution, especially the distribution of independent films. I think it would be great if some sort of bandcamp for films came out of this. I'm looking forward to seeing your film! Does it matter that I don't live in the US? Is that going to make it difficult to purchase?
    Yeah, I also signed up for the affiliate programme.

    1. "Bandcamp for films" is exactly what I was looking for when I started researching distribution solutions for my new film...but it doesn't exist... so what I did was create a personal bandcamp for films... and I will share the blueprint very soon ^_^

      Doesn't matter where in the world you are... as long as you can use paypal... eventually I'd like to use something like bitcoin though. I purposely stayed away from all sites/services that are U.S. only.

  5. So will there be any kind of launch party kinda thing? Maybe on synchtube + skype or something? That'd be pretty feckin' sweet.

    1. Thats a good idea! So I would make a synchtube room and play the movie? and then people could share their skype id if they want to talk about the film afterwards or something? Sounds kinda fun!

  6. Its been exciting waiting all this time and im very happy for you as well. YOU may not realize this but your inspiration to many people and your hard work doesnt go un noticed. In fact your one of my most influential artist and because of you and the work you've done it inspires me to work on my own projects and help some of my ideas see the light of day.

    I cant wait for the trailer and the movie. You can expect a digital and physical copy purchase from me. (also a shirt if you plan on making some of those. would love to have one to go with my wats shirt.)
