Most of the feedback from everyone who has downloaded The Man From Earth has been sagt om gaver overwhelmingly positive.
I received a very pleasant mail today.
I am sending you this email after realizing that our website has had nearly 23,000 hits in the last 12 days, much of it coming from your website.
Well for gaver til mig one I can tell you he does indeed check out as legitimate.
Here are some reasons: his comment IP matches his comcast ISP when a whois query is initiated his email is the same on his myspace page and he references in his rlslog comments he recently added more proof with an image of himself with the.When I make my next picture, I just may upload the movie on the net myself!Our independent movie had next to no advertising budget and very little going for it until somebody ripped one of the DVD screeners and put the movie online for all to download.Also the Director, Richard Schenkman gives his backup that both of the men have discussed the matter quite extensively before reaching out to the download community.But their whole idea behind going public was to pull a Radiohead to reach out to the online community and say, If you downloaded this movie and liked it, please buy the DVD; and if you cant buy the DVD where you live, please send.Wilkinson and I am the producer of a small independent film called Jerome Bixbys The Man From Earth ( our review ).In the future, I will not complain about file sharing.You can support producers of The Man From Earth by buying the retail DVD, which should be available in the US stores from tomorrow.Thanks to everyone who has downloaded this torrrent and watched the film, our awareness level is through the roof.After that happened, people were watching it and started posting mostly all positive reviews on IMDb, Amazon and other places.Eric: Heres is a picture I took of myself five minutes ago in front of my computer screen while logged into.In addition, our trailer, both on the m site and other sites like, MySpace and AOL has been watched nearly 20,000 times AND whats most impressive is our ranking on IMDb went from being the 11,235th most popular movie, to the 5th most popular.
This guy really deserves support from the file shareing community!
What you guys have done here is nothing short of amazing.
Update: Proof for the non believers: With so many scams on the internet these days it is not entirely surprising that some may jump to conclusions about the legitimacy of this whole ordeal.
