Haven't posted in a few weeks. Getting the T.F. Mou thing ready and moving out of my house into an apartment in Cambridge. But here are such tidbits of the DVD special features for your viewing pleasure:

The official Two Short Films by J.L. Carrozza DVD is now available to buy on my official website.

I can safely say, as parting words on this project, (though, as said, I will make a new pressing by Christmas at the latest with menus) that I am very proud of it. It was virtually a "one-man" operation that took me almost six months of hard work. With the exception of Kevin's relooping and Deirdre's dub for Dream House (which I recorded) and the scores I had commissioned, everything was done by me. The color correction, the editing, the more "film-like" look, the majority of the sound mixing and sound effects, all of the special features and if you order, the DVDs you will hold in my hand had inserts and discs printed by me and then all put together by my hands.

The films are, with all the objective certainty I can possibly throw on my own work, far superior editions of the films. They were both overlong and work better/are more shocking "quicker" and Dream House is like a different film entirely. The special features are as detailed as I could get, I wanted to throw in an interview where I discuss some of the films that inspired Little Red Riding Hood and Dream House but the shakey "movie clips rights" concept made me decide not to, but everything else is very extensive. The commentaries have as much information jam-packed into them that I could fit and was relevant for the films' onscreen happenings, the behind the scenes footage shows you just what really went on behind the scenes of these films and for those who couldn't bare the loss of some of the sequences in Dream House, there are the recut and much slicker versions of the scenes I axed from it. All of that, plus my first real foray into visceral horror, The Big Toe from the summers of 2002 and 2003!

I've been saying that I'm gonna make a DVD for years, I even had one made of all my old films but I didn't have the focus and will to sell it. Now it's finally here. I hope, if you decide to buy, that you enjoy seeing all of my hard work in digital versatile disc form.

The Epson replacement's here, so I'm assembling it right now. The orders for the discs will start on July 6th as previously announced.

My website has been given an update with a mention to the new version of Conversations with T.F. Mou and the layout of the films section has been made more concise and user friendly.

Conversations with T.F. Mou is falling into place nicely. Deirdre Yee (Kate's voice in Dream House) is doing the narration, Dan Rodriguez from PACTV and Kevin James are doing the camera/sound work for the interview.

I'm gonna do another retrospective of Mou's films for this blog.
