Deployment Strategy - chapter 1 of 3 from markcheng on Vimeo.

The other two chapters are viewable after the jump!

I just recorded my Director's Commentary at the IndiePix studio for the upcoming international release of Deployment Strategy. It was pretty fun. It was my first time doing a recording like this so I was a little nervous because I wanted to make sure I had enough to talk about! The night before I re-watched the film and made mental notes in each scene and for several special effects shots that I wanted to talk about.

SO here are a couple of thoughts about my experience finding a distributor... I've been to a lot of seminars and read a lot of books about how to find a distributor, and now that i've gone through the process (admittingly on a micro level with my small little film) i wanted to add my two cents. Getting a distributor for your film is a little like getting into college- just get good grades! There's not a ton of secret strategy involved!

this has been brewing for a while and the contract's actually been signed for about a week! IndiePix, located in NYC, will sell DVDs, download-to-burn and- later this year- rent-to-stream!

hey all,
it's been quiet here i know but things are still happening in the background! first of all, my hands got a *little* bit more full as you can see from the photos!! Deployment Strategy used to be my only baby, but now it has to learn to share!! Sorry it's a bit off topic but filmmakers are people too with other parts to their lives!!

Now as for DS... there has been activity going on but i want to wait till things are finalized before giving too many details. (I don't want to jinx anything!)

In a nutshell, Deployment Strategy might get picked up by a distributor! read on...

hey, i heard last week that we're playing opening night at the 5th Annual NYC Downtown Short Film Festival!! Yay! Finally a screening in our neck of the woods!
From the acceptance email, this festival sounds great as, "audience members, along with our Film Festival committee, are given comment cards and asked to rate each film. The NYCDSFF tallies the results and the highest rated films from each screening will then be invited to participate in the next NYC Downtown Short Film Festival, taking place in May, 2008..."

so we're just getting the first round of movie reviews in. here are samples from our first three!

From Blogger News Network:

    "...DS is a short film that attempts to do cyberpunk right without trying to mess it up like Hollywood. Like proper cyberpunk its short sharp and pointed...This sort of stripped down no-bullshit type of short film makes me think there is maybe a respite from the every damn film has to be a 2 hour epic attitude from Hollywood."

Just got word that Deployment Strategy won "Best Special Effects" at the Indie Fest USA festival in Anahiem, California this past weekend! This follows an earlier win (that i forgot to post) at The ShockerFest for "Best Science Fiction".


Status Check [sticky]:

Deployment Strategy's official site has now been launched and is selling the DVD!

This press release went out over PRWeb this morning: Science-Fiction Epic Short Film, Deployment Strategy, Now Available in Limited Distribution

Stayed up till 2:30am writing it and getting it done. Yay!!!

Who Am I and why in the world... i doing this?? I ask myself this all the freaking time but the conclusion is always the same- I don't know why, all I know is that I just must, must, must make this film...
