Check out the interview with co-directors Ivan Malekin and Sarah Jayne as they answer some life, film and improvisation questions relating to Friends, Foes & Fireworks and their film experiences. You can read the interview with magazine founder and editor-in-chief, Jennifer Sparkman, on the official Articles of Antiquity site here.
It is with much excitement that Nexus Production Group announces that a DVD version of Friends, Foes & Fireworks is coming. The film will be stocked through Barnes & Noble and Hoopla, available for order through Walmart and Best Buy, plus a few other DVD libraries and stores. It's already available to pre-order through Amazon and will be released on DVD come November 13th this year.
The film came about due to the directors Sarah Jayne and Ivan Malekin's dislike of all the NYE buildup and then disappointment which follows. So instead of trying again to 'have a good one', they decided to do what they love instead - make a film!*
DVD is a wonderful way to present the film, making it perfect to gift for Christmas and to watch with friends and family in the comfort of your own home. Those who are not fond of NYE and all the hype surrounding the end of the year celebrations, just like the directors, can spend the night watching the film and cheering on the characters as they stumble though a train-wreck of a NYE celebration.
As a bonus, the DVD purchase through Amazon also comes with a gift wrap option. As we said, the perfect gift and you can pre-order your copy here.
*Read about it the the directors inspiration in the PRESS section, as it is often a topic of discussion in many interviews.
Coming in at the end of July is a review from online Entertainment site Kewel World.
NPG contacted Kewel World in regards to a review and were pleased when they took on the experimental film to review. Kewel World seemed to be a site covering the horror genre, with an interest in comic book stories. However the editor informed us that they were open to review the film, and it is by coincidence that they receive a lot of horror films to review.
It was great to see that the reviewer actually did his research on the Mumblecore genre before watching a film style which was new territory for him. Always a bonus when people are reviewing your film which does not fit into the mainstream genres that reviewers are accustomed to, which is often the case for Mumblecore or improvised films.
