As well as its online release on Comedy Hype! How did it go, listen to find out!

  • Getting rejected from Short of the Week and Film Shortage, was that expected?
  • How is Alrik feeling? Nervous, excited?
  • What are Timothy and Alrik’s predictions for the online release, how many hits will Brother get?

  • The results are in and Brother actually performed better than Strange Thing on day one but basically went in the opposite direction on day two. This is probably due to releasing on a Friday versus a Monday so we will see how things go in the next few days.
  • The premiere it self, how it went, how many people showed up?

  • Thanks so much for listening and thanks for the support! Aside from making a movie, the hardest part is getting people to see it, so I appreciate every view, share and like you can throw to the Vimeo link. Thanks again for listening and we will be back with a more traditional episode next week! But what did you think of this episode, was it interesting, should we do this again for future film releases?
