UNION TRIBUNE ARTICLE 1-29-06
Drakmar was featured in today's San Diego Union Tribune. Colin called early this morning and left this message, "Just wanted to let you know that there's an article about us in the paper. They called me 'toothy' and Corwin 'overweight'. It's awesome. Call me back." It was flattering to have David Elliott take interest in the film, since we've enjoyed his writing for years. Here's the link to the article. Hope it works!

KPBS ARTICLE 1-25-06
Beth Accomando mentioned the film briefly in her article about Film School Confidential (where our short film, Bartholomew's Song screened). Here's the link. You'll have to scroll down to find it amidst the other films highlighted.

MAUI SCREENING 12-30-05
This past Monday, Drakmar screened for a livingroom packed with Mauians in Pukalani, Hawaii. We all laughed and cried and got pissed off together. Good times. Thanks so much to the Palmers for hosting the event. If any of you want to have a Drakmar night in your livingroom, let us know and we'll loan you a copy for free.

SDSU SCREENING, A SUCCESS 11-16-05
On Tues. night, November 15, 150 or so people showed up for the screening of Drakmar at SDSU's Don Powell Theater. The film was received very well by the collective audience, and we were able to see where its strong and weak points are. We believe this is probably our last local screening of the film, only because it's emotionally draining for us to organize.
But, if anyone wants to get a group together to watch it, let us know and we'll loan you a free dvd. or email us if you're interested in purchasing one. Thanks so much for coming out!

PLNU SCREENING 10-11-05
About 350 people showed up for our first big test screening of the film. We were really happy with the reaction. Colin and his family and Scott and a few others from the film were also present. It was a relief to receive sincere "thank yous" from all of them. That itself made the whole night worth it. We'll be making changes to a few things, based on reactions from the audience, but for the most part, we're very pleased with what we've got. We're planning to have another big screening at San Diego State University within a month or so.

FINAL SOUND MIX 10-07-05
We were fortunate enough to show Drakmar to a very talented and credited sound mixer in Hollywood. He liked it very much and offered to do the final mix down of the film. It was a complete surprise to us, since we were really only hoping for some good advice (which he gave us as well). So, in a few weeks or so, at least we'll know it sounds good.
