Now taking Blu-ray pre-orders

So It's been a while since I last updated this blog. I haven't had much to talk about, other than a 3 week vacation to Australia, where the film was screened for a few family and friends to overwhelmingly good reviews, (hey, they're family. They're not allowed to give anything but), and a weekend of camping. So other than that, not much to write home about, Serum 1831-wise anyways.

But Now I have some news. The DVD and blu-ray versions of Serum 1831 will soon be available for you to view in the comfort of your own homes. For those who worked on the film either as cast, crew, background performers or suppliers, you deserve a FREE copy of the regular DVD version of the short. For those who didn't have anything to do with the movie, we'll talk. For everyone, we will be printing a VERY LIMITED NUMBER of blu-ray versions of the movie. This will be the Hi-Def, Dolby 5.1 surround sound version of the movie. Alas, as blu-ray authoring is still very expensive, I can't afford to give away free copies. So there will be a charge for the blu-ray version of the disc. I'm not looking to make a profit on the discs, I just need to cover the costs. I expect it to be in the $35 to $40 range per disc. However, the more people that order the blu-ray discs there are, the cheaper the cost gets.

So with that in mind, I am offering a pre-sale of the blu-ray version of Serum 1831. Please let me know if any of you would like to purchase a blu-ray version of the disc by August 3rd, 2009. On August 4th, I will send out an e-mail to those interested in purchasing a blu-ray version letting you know exactly how much it will cost. You will be able to pay for and pick-up your blu-ray disc at the cast and crew screening of the film, expected to be in mid-August.

Drop me an email at to let me know if you want to buy a blu-ray. All those who didn't work on the film, but do purchase a blu-ray or regular disc, get free admission to the cast and crew screening. All those who don't purchase one, we'll chat ;-)
