Inside SAXON – screenplay by Greg Loftin + the making of a guerrilla film:

* the full original screenplay – this printed version offers new insights into the final film as it shows some elements which were lost or changed due to the constraints of budget, time and location
* ‘the making of’ story based on the newsletters written by the producer for cast, crew and investors over the 3-year period from pre-production through to post-production, marketing, film festivals, distribution and release
* full credits – cast, production crew, post-production, special thanks
* a mini biog of lead actor Sean Harris, writer-director Greg Loftin and producer Elise Valmorbida
* awards and extracts from the extensive press coverage the film has garnered to date
* lots of lovely stills – behind the scenes and in front of them!

DVD premiere

Stuff happens. Global financial and banking crisis. Retail crisis. Independent film distribution crisis. Big studios suddenly cram the pre-Christmas slot with comedy dvds to distract us while we digest turkey and worry about the world. The instore shelves will be heaving with product, so there’s no space for little ole’ SAXON until January 2009. It’s a quiet time: people are on holidays, or broke, or curled up in front of the TV watching the dvds they got for Christmas… But it’s also a good time: people have gift vouchers to spend and unwanted dvds to exchange at the shops, and SAXON stands a chance of getting noticed. Product and PR. Instore, online and in the media.

So the news is this: 12 January 2009 is the official DVD premiere date for SAXON. You’ll find the dvd – packed with extras to die for – at all the usual retailers, great and small. You’ll also be able to buy the dvd direct from the distributors Peccadillo at
