The Nor'eastour comes to a close...
After a week on the road, the Nor'eastour comes to a close. Over one thousand miles we projected eight screenings, in six cities, across two countries, with one film. It was a hell of a road trip with good friends old and new. Thanks to all of you who came out and supported us. Salute!

We're psyched and honored to have our first Official Selection right here in Maine, thanks EMERGE Film Festival!
We'll have more details soon about dates and tickets. See you all in Lewiston/Auburn at the end of April!
We were so pleased to bring the film down to two sold out shows at the Luna Theater in Lowell, MA. From the beginning, we were interested in having screenings in Maine and Massachusetts, and we couldn't have found a better place than the cozy 80-seat Luna Theater, tucked deep within the rich history of the Lowell mills.
(Friday night. Not a bad crowd for a snow day.)
We want to extend thanks to everyone who made it out, especially after Friday's storm. Your enthusiasm for this film has been incredible. There's one more showing on Tuesday for those of you who missed it or want to watch it again.
The next step for the film are the festival premiere's. We have been busy researching and submitting to festivals across North America, and select festivals abroad. We hope to bring you more good news as we start hearing back!
Legends Thursday Interview
We were very pleased to sit down with COUPE from the fantastic Legends Thursday podcast to talk a little bit about the film. The interview is available to stream here (our segment starts around 09:55) and is worth the listen.

A Maine Premiere
On Tuesday, October 27, 2015, one hundred and fifty people gathered at SPACE Gallery for the Maine (work in progress) release of Year-round Metal Enjoyment. The event itself sold out two weeks prior and those in attendance were a mix of people from the film, art, and graffiti communities of New England. Some of whom had traveled from Rhode Island and Vermont to be in attendance. The atmosphere was rowdy, electric, and long overdue.

We would like to thank everyone who came out, and laughed, applauded and hollered throughout the screening and Q&A. That was a film experience unlike any we have experienced before.
Lastly, a large thank you goes out to SPACE Gallery and Oxbow Beer for continuing to support local film.
