The recent test screening of The Moo Man went fabulously. Lots of laughter and quite a few tears. It seems to be quite an emotional film we have here!
A busy time at Truffleig Towers but the film is now finished!
Our wonderful music composer Stephen Daltry has recorded and delivered the final music and it’s now in the film. It’s beautiful, funny sometimes, and poignant and poetic in other parts. Goodness this is a film which will leave you thinking as you exit the cinema. A brilliant job.
Any day now we will announce a release date for the DVD. You’ll then be able to pre-order the DVD and be the first to see The Moo Man. This first pressing won’t be with us until mid October but if you pre-order from next week it will be on special offer too so significanlty cheaper than the retail price. We will get a little trailer of the film online soon.
Why are we doing this? We are making the DVD available by pre-order so that we can build up a bit of a war chest to complete the film; to do the sound mix and the picture grade. Buying the DVD by pre-order not only means you’l be the first to see and get a great discount but it also helps us the filmmakers to complete the film.
Watch this space…
I can barely believe this but it looks like we have finished editing The Moo Man. Yes, I know, it is about time isn’t it? We show the film to Stephen the farmer tonight. Maybe he won’t like it? Would we have to begin editing again…
Steve’s favourite cow Ida is becoming more and more integral to the film. She’s becoming such a star that we might need to change the title to “Ida and the moo man”. Then again Steve the farmer would never be free of her agent demanding a bigger trailer and dressage room for Ida. One whif of success hey!
The Moo-Man website has had a refresh and hopefully we can now start updating it much more often and will add some great apps to show where the film is screening and a ‘demand it’ option. Stay tuned.
Finally, more than a year later than we planned, editing of The Moo-Man is really shaping up and we will soon be there with a finished film! It has taken much, much longer than we thought but it’s worth the extra work. Steve the farmer, his trials and his tribulations on his farm and with the animals is a wonderful, heartwarming adventure with more than a touch of grit. Hopefully we can start thinking about a cinema release date soon.
Steve and his dad had been bottling milk by hand in the farmhouse kitchen until now. Watch the scene now in our “preview clips”.
We are putting some more preview scenes from the film online. Here is the first and it’s a bit of a fave: Ida does Eastbourne:
Ida is Steve the farmer’s favourite cow. Steve being Steve, when he wanted to start a milk round in Eastbourne, he decided to promote the new round in a novel way. This is what happened when Steve decided to give Ida the new job as the farm’s head of PR.
