November 2010 may be history in less than a couple of hours here, but November 30, 2010 will be a day that I always remember… because that’s the day that PYRITE was officially made available for purchase online!!! The only days that will trump 11/30/2010 will be that fateful day in December when I stamp everything final and send the DVD itself off for duplication, and then Tuesday, January 25, 2011. That’s the date that PYRITE will officially ship!
So yes, the DVD and soundtrack are both available to order starting now, but it’s a pre-order, with the actual street date being 1/25/11. With the pre-order, however, we’re selling the DVD, CD, and a DVD+CD bundle for cheaper than we ever will be once the DVD is officially released, so anyone who pre-orders will most definitely be getting a great deal.

Beyond the big news item, there has been a ton going here in November. The Emmet Swimming song for the soundtrack has been titled and recorded… within the next 24 hours or so I’ll be receiving the final mix, and I’m really, really, REALLY excited to hear the song! It’s called SAME AS ME, and will be the headlining track on the PYRITE Soundtrack, which you can now view in detail here: http://www.hollywood27.com/h27store_PYRITE_CDList.html
Color Correction was completed a few weeks back, and the DVD itself is also now nearly complete. We have our DVD cover design done, and our CD digipak design was completed today — special thanks to Megan Garmes for doing another awesome job! Our Web Store is up-and-running (obviously), and we’re in the stretch run here.
The only things left for me to finish are the final touches on two of the DVD EXTRAS, and then final testing/tweaking of the design. The other open pieces relate to finalizing the paperwork for our music licenses, where we are just awaiting final documentation to execute and then cut a few more checks. So everything’s finally fallen into place here, and I just need to get back to the Edit Office starting tomorrow and knock these final bits out over the next 2-3 weeks.
That’s actually for the January 2011 Update. I’ll be discussing where PYRITE’s going (showings, festivals, events, etc.), announce when editing officially resumes on the FTD DOCUMENTARY, and I’ll reveal, at least in some form, the brand new project I’ve been cooking up here for 2011.
Thanks for reading!
