Since the summer of this year, we have been working hard as a two-man team to get the film out to the world, and we’re pleased to report that the launch has been a great success. We released the DVD and download at the end of November, just over three weeks ago, and since then we’ve sent hundreds of copies all over the globe, as far away as the Cayman Islands, Singapore, Alaska, New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, and of course all over the UK, Europe and the USA.
This is the first feature-length documentary we’ve made, and our first attempt at running our own shop through which to distribute it. We’re incredibly happy with the reception that the film has had (some of which has kindly been made public on the reviews page). We guessed that what we’d made would challenge a lot of expectations, particularly within the adventure/outdoor film scene, and it seems we guessed correctly. To the great many of you who have been able to enjoy the story for what it is, we thank you for your open-mindedness.
Next year will see a number of screening and Q&A events, not just in the UK but overseas. If you’re interested in coming along to one of these, register now and let us know your country and city so we can judge the demand. (If you’re already subscribed to the mailing list, you can update your city and country details using the link you’ll find at the bottom of your most recent email from us.)
We’ll also be announcing the release of the book which accompanies the film. Look out for that in January.
Finally, watch out for the extra video material we’ll be putting online over the next few months. There’s so much material to share that never made it into the final cut, and it would be a shame to leave it gathering dust!
We’re taking a break now (though the download will remain available instantly throughout the holiday season). We’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and thank you for your support during this journey!
