The DVD can also be ordered by phone from Movies Unlimited at (800) 668-4344. We're not sure yet which bricks & mortar retailers plan on carrying the film. We'll keep you posted, and in the meantime, hats off to Alliance Atlantis and Hen's Tooth for finally bringing A Child's Christmas in Wales to DVD!


By happy coincidence,

CHERRY
will be released on DVD by Ventura Distribution on November 15, 2005.

But, hats off to Showcase Films and Ventura for finally bringing Cherry to DVD!


Here's the latest news on our most recent film,

City of Dreams (formerly The Lost City of New York) is a short film, written and directed by yours truly. Some of Lovisa's lovely still photographs from the film are now posted on the site along with a brief production journal. Please click on the link above.

Don't forget to visit the EvenHand Store. We offer EvenHand posters, T-shirts and SLPD shoulder patches, as well as the insanely popular "FAT COP" tank top. There is some lively trading going on in the SLPD shoulder patch department, so if you have a police patch you're interested in trading, please visit the EvenHand store or send an email.

The EvenHand listing on the Internet Movie Database has accumulated some votes, but more are always welcome. If you have seen the film, please take a minute and register your vote there. Thanks to all who have left great reviews on the IMDb site! Here's a link:

Hey! Tell all your friends -- we're on the map!



The EvenHand DVD

Here's some information on where you can find EvenHand:

Hollywood Video is stocking the film (hooray for them!), as are a number of smaller chains and mom & pop stores. Blockbuster lists it on their website, but is not stocking it in their stores. It is widely available online, though. Here are some links:

Hollywood Video
Rent or buy the DVD or VHS. Click on the title or logo to find the store nearest you. Here's a link to their description of EvenHand.

Netflix
Netflix has the film, too. Lovisa says this is a great way to rent DVDs; she's completely addicted.
Compare prices and read reviews at epinions.com
EvenHand was available at 8 listed e-retailers: Amazon, Movies Unlimited, CD Connection, Half.com, Barnes & Noble, BestPrices.com, CD Universe and Deep Discount DVD. Prices varied from $13.50 (Deep Discount DVD) to $22.49 (all prices without shipping). There was only one review posted on epinions when I checked (five stars).

Amazon.com
They offer used DVDs of EvenHand from $12.99 and new ones for $21.24 (list is $24.99). Buy.com also offers new ones for the exact same price.

okay, fine, I won't copy your stupid logo

Excalibur Films
"The best of both worlds" -- they've got adult titles and films for the whole family! EvenHand is $17.48. They've posted a not bad synopsis and a pre-release graphic of the DVD box. Interesting.

Rotten Tomatoes
They've posted eight reviews harvested from here and there on the web.
Badmouth Movies
How can ALL of these sites be #1? That doesn't seem possible. But, if they say so, it must be true. A decent little synopsis, but no rating, no picture, no reviews and they credit me as "Producer" only. Hmmm. And it's less expensive at Excalibur and loads cheaper at Deep Discount DVD.
