Chicago & my lost tape eureka moment

I've been a bit slow getting into the Somewhere New Year so this posting is coming a bit late BUT we're excited to say that Living with the Tudors is enjoying two special screenings at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago.

For more info on the actual screenings go to the Gene Siskel Film Center web site and click on the "Stranger than Fiction" section. The dates are:

Sunday, January 11, 5:30 pm
Wednesday, January 14, 6:00 pm

Also, fingers crossed, I hope the production of the US Tudors DVD is now finally underway after what feels like months of trying to sort out the lost master tape of the all important extras, which somehow disappeared when the UK version was made. The whereabouts of the original still remains a mystery (lost somewhere in a vortex between 24-7 & Soda pictures) but just at the point I had almost resigned myself to re-editing 40 minutes of material from about 40 different tapes in all different formats I experienced one of those "I'll just have one last check in this unlikely looking shoe box" moments and found a safety master the wonderful Matt Jones from Illumina must have made for us. He too had felt my lost tape pain over the last few months when searching the not insignificant archive of our work held in storage at Illumina! Anyway, it will hopefully now all end well, with a lovely new NTSC set of shiny DVDs assuming the new master arrives safely with Indiepix in the US ... now where did I put that UPS tracking information ...
