Q: So, now that the film is done, who is distributing it?
A: At one point we had attracted the attention of a Canadian distributor but after failing to reach a deal we moved forward with online distribution and since March 4 we have been releasing the movie episodically on Blip.tv in weekly increments. As the episodes come out, the popularity of “Regulators” has steadily increased and we have now been asked to appear at two different conventions this summer, the one this weekend in Hamilton and the other in Washington DC, InterventionCon next month.
Q: What’s the movie about?
A: The movie is a mixture of science fiction and wild west action loosely retelling the story of the Three Musketeers. It was written, shot and cast in Niagara Falls, although in this city it’s practically unknown. Most of our audience is coming from Canada or the mid-west and as far away as Italy.
Q: Wow, Italian fans. That’s cool. But, you still are a Niagara Falls boy at heart, right?
A: We are very proud to have done nearly everything for this project in Niagara Falls and I’d just like a way to get more people in Niagara Falls to be aware of it, especially with the two conventions we are speaking at this summer.
Q: How can people see the movie.
A: I invite them to visit the blip page at blip.tv/regulators where episodes are posted, currently up to episode 10.
Q: Hopes for the future?
A: This is the biggest thing we at Fuse Bomb have ever tried and we succeeded. We currently two days into an “IndieGogo campaign,” crowdfunding. Our plan is to film four movies over the next year-and-a-half and we’re going to also release them as web series. We’re only asking for $12,000.
