Hi guys, Caroleen here.
Today marks an important milestone in any film’s development process.—It’s the day we share We Love Paleo’s trailer with the rest of the world!
While this is long overdue, we hope you will find it entertaining, enticing and that it ultimately makes you want to see the film once it’s released. (Read on for more details about that.)
Our goal with We Love Paleo is to reach a larger, more mainstream group of people who might otherwise never come across the paleo principles and ultimately inspire them to try it out for themselves. All this whilst entertaining them with a good story.
There’s something in it for paleo enthusiasts too, who will probably enjoy the fact that there’s (finally) a film touching on obvious topics such as nutrition, but also, fasting, sprinting, movement, chronic cardio, sleep and lots more.
Enjoy and thanks in advance for sharing our trailer with anyone and everyone you think WLP might benefit once it comes out!
NOTE: To view all our pre order packages, go here.
We’re still working on animations that pack a punch. Bootstrapping the whole post-production (as you probably already know from earlier posts) and completing motion graphics ourselves to the highest possible standard along with chasing up external media clearances (which often takes a long time) has proven to take way longer than expected… Thanks for having faith in us.
2- Why did you create a trailer before finishing the film? We felt like you can only stop sharing material with your audience for so long before people start thinking the film will never come out or (worse) forget about it altogether. It was therefore imperative that we have something to show for all our hard work even if some of our better animations didn’t make it into the trailer. Thus although WLP will be showcasing plenty more animations, great clips and archival footage… there’s only so much you can show within a 3-minute clip.
3- When are you releasing it? There’s a lot of chasing around for formal permission when you’re using other people’s material (such as photos, video, etc.).—This is where I secretly wish I was Sofia Coppola and could readily use my “filmmaker’s magic wand” (i.e. the phone) to get everything sorted almost instantly. This said, we really don’t see ourselves releasing the film beyond summer 2015.
4- Is this the only trailer for the film? Yes, unless a third party (aka a film distributor) wanted to cut a new version. We’re now focussing on getting WLP passed the finish line within the next couple of months.
5- Will you be submitting the film to festivals? Yes, we do have some in mind. Our approach is to submit the film to festivals that don’t require us to premiere at their event since we don’t want our audience to wait any longer to enjoy our debut feature documentary. We’ll surely keep you posted on those developments as well.
That’s it for today!
Speak to you soon again,
