Time Runners (the European title for 95ers: ECHOES) is strutting its stuff in front of film buyers right now at the Marche du Film, one of the largest film markets in the world. (It takes place alongside the Cannes Film Festival.) In addition to the title, a couple other things have changed about the movie…
So, Ali and I got a very unusual piece of mail the other day… a CHECK. People on the other side of planet Earth PAID us for our movie.
Well, in timespace we don’t deal so much with “circles” per se. We get more of these these weird shell-type constructs. But the connection is the same. Thanks to some big news that will hopefully come next week… I feel I can safely say that this project is reaching closure. Years ago when I began chronicling the 95ers indie film adventures in this blog, I wrote about some of the core mysteries and struggles—and grand misconceptions—we were facing. A reprint seems very appropriate now. Enjoy!
(To give you a little chronological perspective… It is now 2012. The following (except for the last line) was written in 2009. 95ers was first conceived in 1998.)
“But I thought 95ers was a time travel movie? A quantum-delving, soul-impacting, spine-tingling, popcorn-munching paranormal time travel movie?”
It is indeed all those things, folks, and much more. Time travelers do go to 31st century from time to time. (Well, technically, in 95ers:ECHOES we only go to the 27th century, but who’s counting.)
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! May you have a 2012 free of timespace paradoxes, or least interspersed with only the enlightening ones!
Just a super quick post… Some of you can’t seem to easily play the videos I embed in these posts. SO, to test out my new and improved embed code, here is the “REEL” of my production company. Let me know if you can’t see the video.
Also, please note the extremely rudimentary “95er’s Store” on the website. Now you can order your shirts!!! (A few donors are waiting for shirts… I’ll contact you directly.)
Here’s the link:
Some of you visiting this site for the first time are cast and crew of 95ers:ECHOES—and you’ve contributed your prodigious talents for little pay. (Sometimes none!)
Some of you have invested cash—full well knowing you might never see a dime.
For incomprehensible reasons, some of you have been up with me in the freezing cold in the wee hours with no desire for remuneration or credit—you are angels.
Some of you are very close associates who have seen the potential of this world, and have helped expand it.
Some of you have simply listened to me and understood the value of creating something new that might be useful to the world.
And many of you have lifted me up and inspired me when I was about to throw the footage in the river.
On August 31, 1999, my brother James and I (“I” being Thomas Gomez Durham) began an exchange of emails and phone calls that has exploded into an epic science fiction universe. “95ers” is home to characters and stories destined for legend, and offers a banquet of ideas for hungry minds and souls.Here I will chronicle the unfolding, and many of the secrets, of the “95ers” universe.
