Movie Crowdfunding Campaign

Hello Video Angels,

Many of you will remember our former employee, Robert Doerr, who now lives in the Netherlands. He’s currently involved in an independent film production that’s raising funds through a crowdfunding campaign. Here’s how Robert describes the project:

“Two Truths and a Lie tells the story of a casual evening between friends that takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious stranger appears at the door. You can contribute to the production of this comedy/thriller by donating to the film’s IndieGoGo Crowdfunding campaign (! The campaign offers many rewards that allow you to be directly involved in the film’s production and be credited in the film and on IMDB. Among other things, you can be a funding producer, have your original art/music appear in key scenes in the film, be an official company sponsor, and even be one of the executive producers! Please consider supporting this exciting project and spread the word!”

Closed Wednesdays

We want to let you know that starting next Wednesday, April 24th, we’ll no longer be open on Wednesdays. Unfortunately our current staff will have other work commitments at that time, but we’re working on getting new staff members trained in and hope to be open again on Wednesdays once that training is complete, which may take a few months. During this interim period, we’re going to aim for announcing next week’s titles on the Tuesday before they’re released, barring a shipping delay that would prevent being certain about which titles will be available.

Staff Picks

Al says:
RIP Norman Jewison

Amber says:
Based on a true story, the movie follows the adventures of college graduate Christopher McCandless who abandons his comforts and possessions and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, he re-names himself and meets several characters who shape his life. He is determined to escape civilized society almost to a fault and sacrifices real human connection multiple times throughout the film. His philosophies are admirable though, and the film has a very strong emotional impact. I think this is a gripping and thoughtful film that will have you questioning the true meaning of happiness long after the ending credits.

C says:
because of Mayday/May 1st/Walpurgisnacht. the soundtrack rules also

Isabelle says:
