Spearfishing DVD Premier

Well the Spearfishing dvd has finally made to the Premier!! 

Last nite we showed the completed DVD Good Times for the first time, it still has a few minor little tweaks but basically it is exactly were we want it.
We showed the dvd to a small group of guys to get some feedback and gauge their response to the film. We invited Rob Allen and his wife, Steve Ellis from Fibretech & Xfins, Stuart Donkin from Marlin Marine - he makes our water housings. Chris west from Wahoo Spearfishing Club and Clint Friend and his wife - he's the guy who wrote the original music for the film.

The film just sucks you in and before we knew it the hour was over and there was a round of applause and loads of complements flying. It was the response we were looking for, we were very nervous not knowing how people would respond. But we are very confident at the moment and super excited to do the final touches and get the whole package with extras burnt to glass master.

Then to top it all off we had dinner with Rob and his wife, and it looks like the Dive Factory will take 1000units on the first order!! That right there makes the 18months of grind worth it!

Keep you in touch

Spearfishing DVD - the end is near!!

Hey Guys,

Today we reached a major milestone in the Spearfishing Epic "Good Times".
All the color correcting and sound was completed and almost all the music was scored and recoreded. Tomorrow it all gets sent off to the Matt our resedent editing guru, to put all back together and burn to disc for the first viewing of the completed main feature on Saturday evening.

This has been an mostorous project, the main feature is an hour long and has taken over 18months to complete. The music alone has 13 origonal pieces of music all written specifically for the film. .... I dont think there is a single spearfishing film out there that has this amount of attention to detail.

But just see some of the complete segments, complete with music left me with goose bums ..... I cant wait to have the whole project complete.

Will keep you in the loop,

Coatesman
