Though they may take a very, very long time to get the films out there, you really can’t deny that it’s more than worth the wait for anything Synapse Films does these days. Their years-in-the-making DVD of Home Sick is the latest example, and recently president Don May, Jr. talked about two more upcoming releases that I’m sure will prove my point.
First is the Ed Lee adaptation, “>Header (review), which has been floating around festivals for going on two years now, ”It’s real important to mention that we were going after that one for a number of years.” he told Fangoria in a recent interview ”We’re big fans of Ed Lee, and when we got the submission, we were like, ‘Great!’ But it took a long time to get that set up. Now we’ve got Ed’s participation, he’s really excited about us doing the film, and that’s really important to us.”
The other is “>Sick Girl (review), a very sick piece of indie cinema from newbie director Eben McGarr, the features for which are still being work on. Summer or early fall are the hoped-for release time frames for both.
Synapse is a great example of a DVD company that cares and are really helping out the indies, something May promises they’re keeping up with, ”Synapse is taking chances on independent filmmakers. We get submissions every day, and we love some of the movies we’ve been seeing from them.”
