Tweek City Update: October 31, 2006
DVD RELEASE AND MIDNIGHT SHOWS COMING SOON!
Maverick Entertainment Group will be releasing Tweek City on DVD throughout
the United States on January 2, 2007.
That's right – in two short months you can buy or rent Tweek
City complete with the Director's Commentary and 5.1 mix! I don't have
all the details yet but it will be available just about everywhere you
normally go to purchase or rent DVDs, including Blockbuster, Netflix,
Amazon and of course right here at www.tweekcity.com.
Tweek City will also be playing on the big screen for one weekend here
in Los Angeles before the DVD release -- at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in
West Hollywood! This very limited engagement will consist of TWO MIDNIGHT
SHOWS -- on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9 -- so make sure
you SET THE DATES ASIDE -- nothing beats an old fashioned big screen
with a room full of like-minded people!
As I find out more about where and when you can buy tickets and DVDs
I'll post it here at TweekCity.com. Sign up for the email list if you
want to stay in the loop.
The long talked about website renovation is also on its way, so come
back often to see more updates, new merchandise, forums, movie clips,
stills, blogs and neat flash stuff that looks all artsy.
The first upgrade is already here -- check out the Tweek City trailer
with its NEW ORIGINAL SCORE courtesy of Joel Catalan!
'til next time, spread the word and tweek out!
Tweek City Update: April 15, 2006
I know, I know, I promised a DVD release this month.
Although, the DVD is authored and ready to go, I have landed the opportunity
to let producer’s reps Straw Weisman and Timothy Swain of Marquee
Productions explore a larger distribution deal. So, while I’d
love to get the DVD in your hands, I can’t self-distribute the
title until this round has played itself out.
That’s good news by the way…
If Tweek City does get picked up by a larger distributor, it will most
likely come out toward the end of the year, wherever ephedra-based products
are sold, if not, I’ll go back to peddling it myself…stay
In the meantime, I will try harder to get some Tweek City screenings
lined up. Sign up for the email
list to stay posted!
I’ve also been hard at work building out a Tweek City MySpace
community. The MySpace
profile finally provides many of the features that I will eventually
incorporate into this site.
So check out www.myspace.com/tweekcity
- Subscribe to the blog which includes entries from the Tweek City press
kit, unavailable until now, as well as interviews and regular updates.
- Explore website links to all the bands that are featured on the TC
- Connect with hundreds of people, bands and films that share something
in common with Tweek City.
- Check out the trailer, stills and an ever-expanding list of films that
I find inspiring.
AS A FRIEND and, among other things, you can post comments, get
bulletins and know when I've posted a new blog.
Additionally, I have another blog
that currently focuses on Tweek City but will feature a broader range
of topics at tweekcity.blogspot.com.
Tweek train’s a comin’!
Tweek City Update: January 28, 2006
Welcome to TweekCity.com – 2006 promises to be another great
A few highlights:
1) The DVD release should occur, exclusively through this website,
by April 1st. Sign up for the email
list to make sure you stay in the loop!
The Tweek City DVD will include:
- 16x9 Presentation
- Stereo & 5.1 Mix
- Theatrical Trailer
- Audio Commentary with Writer/Director/Producer, Eric Johnson
- Scene Selection
2) There will be a DVD Release Party & Screening,
perhaps in both SF & LA. More details on this event as the date
3) Due to demand, we have just placed a new order for Tweek
City Messenger Bags – get one while supplies last. We’ll
also have a new black t-shirt style shortly.
4) The Tweek City trailer is currently posted on ifilm.
Check it out!
5) We’re continuing to play festivals and, hopefully, independent
theaters throughout the U.S. and, eventually, Europe. There will definitely
be a San Francisco premiere in the next couple months. If you know a
cool theater or space in your area, contact Eric Johnson at email@example.com
and I’ll try to book a screening. Join the email
list for info on upcoming screenings as they are announced.
6) If you’re excited about this film, please help spread the
word! If you have a site, I’ll gladly exchange links and/or provide
you with content. As a matter of fact, I’ll be posting a special
“links” section on the site extremely soon which, among
other things, will take you to the homepage of each band featured in
7) This website will soon undergo a total overhaul. The new site will
allow me to make updates much more often and will be much more interactive
Features you can expect to see in the coming months:
- The Tweek City Store
will expand to include merchandise of all kinds. Of course the Tweek
City DVD and, hopefully, a soundtrack will be made available, but
also movies, music and merch from other like-minded artists, including,
but not limited to, those involved with Tweek City.
- Message boards, blogs, links and comment fields: I would like to
see TweekCity.com grow to become a marketplace and blogosphere for
outsider artists and enthusiasts who simply want to share their passion
for what they love.
- Deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage, interviews and Tweek
City music, including a song by Giuseppe, inspired by the script,
that he performed on set.
Tweek City Update: November 30, 2005
I’d like to thank everyone who made it out to the Queens
International Film Festival to see the NY premiere of Tweek City.
For the second time in two opportunities, Tweek City left a huge impression
at a film festival and it couldn’t have happened without you.
Not only was Tweek City one of the few sell outs, but once again, the
audience rolled right along with the film – laughing, squirming and
crying (well I heard someone sniffle) at all the right times. By closing
night, Tweek City had established itself as one of the most talked about
films of the festival. Just a great success all around.
Beyond the festival itself, Tweek City also received a small dollop
of coverage in the local press. No reviews, but the Village Voice’s
gossip columnist Michael Musto included a
few words about Tweek City -- Ginger Coyote and one other “member”
of the cast in particular. Hey, it’s something!
And please sign up for the email list
if you want to stay apprised of future screenings and DVD release dates
(hopefully by the end of December). Finally, get a 10-dollar (only 10
dollars???) limited-run t-shirt before supplies
Tweek City Update: November 4, 2005
The 2005 Queens International Film Festival has selected Tweek
City as one of 12 feature films it will feature in competition this
That’s right, Tweek City is making its NYC premiere on Friday,
November 18, at 6:30pm. The screening will be in the Mario Gallery at
the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria (really close to Manhattan).
MOMI has “the nation's largest permanent collection of moving
image artifacts”, so come early, enjoy the collection and then
mosey on over to the Mario Gallery at 6:30pm for the Tweek City screening.
I would encourage anyone who comes to set aside their entire evening
as there will definitely be a post-screening party. If the LA premiere
party could jump ‘till dawn, just imagine what we can do in the
city that never sleeps!
If you live in New York or anywhere within traveling distance PLEASE
COME AND SEND THE WORD OUT to everyone you know who might enjoy Tweek
City. If you live in NYC and would like some postcards, drop me an email
and I’ll send you a few to pass out to your friends.
Seating is limited and the LA premiere sold out quickly so order your
seats ASAP by calling 718.459.5496. If you also send me an email, I’ll
make sure everything goes smoothly.
Finally, if you’d like to read more on the festival you can visit
their site at www.queensfilmfestival.com. You can also read more about
the Museum of the Moving Image or just GET DIRECTIONS at www.ammi.org.
I will send more updates as information becomes available.
See you in New York!
P.S. We are busily putting together a TWEEK CITY DVD which will include
a director’s commentary from yours truly, a trailer and for those
of you with the fully stocked home theaters – a 5.1 MIX. DVDs
will be available by EARLY DECEMBER making Tweek City the perfect stocking
stuffer! You can even buy one for Grandma, provided you only play her
