This news is a long time coming! Love Conquers Paul is an independent feature film written and directed by my good friend Colin Bannon that I ended up working on for over a year.
That's right, over a year. In the interest of making the film the best it could be, Colin and I edited this thing in all possible ways. I lived at his house in New York for a few months, then he came to live at my apartment for a few months after that. Drumming up support from wherever we could - but really, that was Colin, he's a pro at it.
I originally came on board as 2nd AC on set, and ended up being offered the editing position (not to say I didn't blatantly lobby for it), and then even further ended up out-right producing the thing and cut my teeth doing major special effects work.
So, Love Conquers Paul has a very special place in my heart - which is why it gives me such great joy to finally talk about its DVD release!
(early draft of the release poster)
On February 8th of next year (just in time for Valentine's Day!) you'll be able to pick this bad boy up in stores across America! And the cherry on top of the cake?
One day I randomly did this illustration in graphite and airbrush paint and somehow, Colin liked it enough that we started using it for early promotion, and then SOMEHOW, E1 Entertainment (the Distribution House) liked it enough for it to be the cover! So yea, I'm thrilled.
Extra points goes to that heart that they added. It reminds me of a old Charlie Brown storm cloud squiggle, which accents the theme of the movie perfectly. It's a heart. But it's not really
a heart. Fun!
Congratulations to the whole cast and crew - the bulk of which goes to Colin Bannon! Next week he joins the crew of Natalie, Queen of Scots (it was his idea to make it in the first place), so I'll buy him a drink!
