Before the Mask on Facebook
If you’re at all familiar with the madness of Leslie Vernon (and shame on you if you’re not), then you’re about to get the chance to have a crash course in his mythology as the original film is headed back to theatres in a truly unique fashion!
This morning we spoke to Behind the Mask: The Rise and Fall of Leslie Vernon director Scott Glosserman to get an update on the progress of the film’s sequel, Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, and he had LOTS to share!
Glosserman has opened up a new company known as Gathr, which offers an entirely new way for indie movies to get that elusive big screen push, a term Scott has coined as TOD or Theatrical on Demand. In a nutshell the model is quite simple… in a small town or even a big city that’s not showing the film you really want to see? Hit up the Gathr website and make a request and then have your friends do so as well. If enough people demand it, the flick will be shown at a local theatre complete with a live or Skyped-in Q&A anywhere in the county. An official press release is expected tomorrow, but for now you can hit up the Gathr site for a bit more insight. That being said…
The first film being offered via Gathr is none other than Behind the Mask: The Rise and Fall of Leslie Vernon. All proceeds earned from the folks who make this screening happen will go toward the making of Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon. So dig that… you’re getting a theatrical experience of a movie that you love along with doing your part to get the second film made. Not enough? There’s even been a special poster made up for the event that is on sale NOW via the Before the Mask store designed by artist Justin Osbourn. Each poster will be printed on 100-lb. glossy paper stock and will be shipped in a tube, NOT folded. Quantities are limited to 425 and will be hand-numbered. Again, all proceeds go toward the making of the second film.
Look for more soon. In the interim dig on this sweet AND AFFORDABLE eye candy!
