    Thanks for the cool words. We are feverishly working on the DVD of BROKEN, which will be available on http://www.whatisbroken.com by the end of June 2005. Many people have been contacting us about buying the full short so we are now in high gear to get it out ASAP. We will have a ton of DVD extras and a bunch of tech talk on how we made BROKEN.

    Thanks again for all the support.

    Very cool looking, and as the other said, very professional looking. Not sure what the trailer is trying to convey though. Overall :up:

    I think the trailer is trying to tell you "Eat your heart out"

    This may sound good to you. I am quite the fan of fan films...and films fan make that are original as well. I wasn't able to load the trailer...but I have faith in you. I'll try and snab a copy of Broken on DVD. So what's that in Aussie dollars? $25-$30? It sounds cool, though. Hope I get to watch it...looks itneresting from all the images I've seen.

    "B R O K E N" Featured in MovieMaker Magazine - July 2006

    [​IMG]

    HOLY CRAP!!! "B R O K E N" (http://www.whatisbroken.com) was spotlighted in the mother of Indie Film Magazines "MovieMaker Magazine." They did an article on "Do it yourself Indie Film Distribution" and they contact us. They did an AMAZING piece on us and we go to explain how a little $8000 short film for Hollywood, FL has gone on and sold over 4000 units. We will be scanning the magazine soon and uploading to the site.

    Thank you all for your support in helping get the word out on BROKEN and it's cast and crew! Without all the people who have purchased the DVD we would still be a little unknown short from Florida.

    Thanks you all very much!!!!!

    Best,
    Alex Ferrari

    I just went onto the website and noticed "The Feature Film". Am I getting my hopes up, or will there be a big budgeted Hollywood extravaganza based on the short film "Broken"?

    The Amazon DVD, is that region-free? If so, you've got another customer :up: (I live in Australia and have no region-1 players, sorry, but I can play Region-0 DVD discs)
