First Fruits. Happy Video Store Day!

In days of yore, in legends and ancient stories, the first fruits of a harvest were given up to the authority of a culture to acknowledge the convergence of circumstances brought forth by a higher power that enabled crops to mature. For two filmmakers whose concept of mythology, storytelling, and filmmaking were pollinated by the films released on home video, nurtured by hours of browsing as video store patrons, grown during conversations exchanged over the counter as clerk and customer, and ripened by the brutal wit of business, we must acknowledge our gods.

With this in mind we honor Video Store Day. This year is a special one for us. For the first time in our lives we are able to offer our first fruits to the bold and brilliant brick and mortar institutions that still deliver the most enduring, tangible and intimate experience possible in our western civilizations' process of exchanging cash for content. 

Our plan from the beginning was to offer our film back to video store and hope they would accept it. To that end, the top priority for Gideon last week was to seek out every remaining video store in the United States. Some 100+ packages later were sent to those that remained; filled with a DVD and the following letter (See full list of stores below):

Happy Video Store Day!

P.S. Shout out to Videodrome out hometown store. Limo Ride now stocked.

Dear Video Store Owner,

We are a pair of filmmakers that were fortunate to meet and start making films together over ten years ago, when we both worked at an independent video store (Movies Worth Seeing. Atlanta, GA. 1985 - 2011).

Upon this release of our first feature film, LIMO RIDE, we felt it only appropriate to pay tribute to those that remain by giving you a copy. So please accept this offering to your shelves, hopefully for you and your patrons to enjoy.

As you know, stores like yours are more than their catalogues. They are places for people to gather and commune over stories they swap. This can alter the course of lives. We’re proof. And if you’d allow us a turn at your campfire, we’d like to give back with our own.

Happy Video Store Day 2016,
Gideon Kennedy & Marcus Rosentrater

The "Holy Grail" as referred to by the crew. This is a shot list of the most difficult, demanding day of shooting LIMO RIDE. Proves we can implement a plan!

The "Holy Grail" as referred to by the crew. This is a shot list of the most difficult, demanding day of shooting LIMO RIDE. Proves we can implement a plan!

The first interviews for Limo Ride took place in December of 2010. Tomorrow the result of all the work from then until now will be released into the world. (God help us all.) So many of you reading this gave us your time, money, energy, sleeping hours, trust, and (in some cases) your bare cold body. Tomorrow is a big moment for all of us.

While we hate to ask more, there is one last, very important, thing we request: please rate and/or review our film on IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Amazon and iTunes. It only takes a few minutes to create accounts and get through this list. You can do this right now using the following links:

Having a large set of, hopefully positive, ratings and reviews will favor the ranking of our film when it is listed on Amazon and iTunes. Having a higher ranking means more people will notice and watch our film. We want to see our film in the Top 20 of video releases in the categories for Comedy, Documentary, and Independent.

It must also be said that this is not just a marketing effort. As independent filmmakers, we want to know what you think. Your opinion is valuable to us. 

In other news, we wanted to recap some of the coverage we've gotten this week. For MovieMaker Magazine, Gideon writes a breakdown of the lessons learned from making documentary and narrative films. SlackJaw Punks and Story Punch podcasts interviewed us about Limo Ride, and our film was reviewed on the Cinema Villainy podcast. We'd love it if you could share with your friends. 

Hang on, we're about to punch the gas.

 

LIMO RIDE Available for Pre-Order. Now on iTunes!

Marcus Rosentrater

We're so excited to announce that as of today LIMO RIDE is available for pre-order on multiple platforms. Over the next few days we'll be profiling each platforms' advantages and how you can rate/review us.

Today we're highlighting LIMO RIDE on iTunes! iTunes represents one of the largest market shares for video on demand. We worked really hard to get our film on the platform, and we hope it opens us up to a whole new audience.

Here is where you can help. Rating and reviewing us on iTunes goes a long way. iTunes uses those ratings, reviews, pre-orders as factors in the way it ranks "popularity." Our goal is to be in the top 20 films in the comedy and/or documentary lists on iTunes the week we come out. We're counting on you, Limo Riders, to help us do that. (Here's a guide to rating on iTunes.)

LIMO RIDE is available on iTunes for $9.99 to purchase, $4.99 to rent. Click here to check it out! Even if you've already ordered it elsewhere, you can still leave a review.

Please also rate and review LIMO RIDE on these additional platforms:
IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3238168/
Rotten Tomatoes: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/limo_ride
Amazon: https://amzn.com/B01M4FI45J

All of these factor heavily in better store placement and thus better sales. 

Thank you so much for taking this ride with us!
