I'm making a documentary film about The Long Winters. It's called Through With Love, and I've been shooting shows and interviews (with much help from Karousme) since November of last year. The hope is to have the editing finished and the film screened in September of this year.

There is more information, and even some *.mov clips at the official website, http://www.dorsiafilms.com.

Hope you like it. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments.

Thanks!

This sounds awesome. I'm surprised this is the first you've mentioned of it.


On a similar but somewhat off-topic of conversation, why the heck hasn't Through With Love been LW-ized and released at least as a b-side? I would pay good money for that single.

"Flibbity Jibbity"

I totally want to make MY guitar say that.


This is AWESOME, and I thank you for doing it.

Rock, Rock On.

Agreed. It's a really good song.

wow, what i thought to be 'just a DVD with some live performances' (that would have been enough to make me very happy) turns out be a complete documentary...

can i just state the following: SWOON

alas, my quicktime seems to miss some info on compression and i can only hear, not see the preview, but even just this news is simply awesome to the extreme!

every time i think this band and its fans cannot surprise me anymore, there's something new.
Adam and Jace rule!

I wish I could troubleshoot this for you, but I don't have the computer know-how to effectively assist you. Do you have the most up-to-date version of QT? Have you, uh, restarted your computer?

Also, thanks to everyone who has taken a look at the trailer and said something nice about it.

I had the same problem, just a white screen and the sound, so I downloaded Quicktime 7, and it worked. And it was so worth it! I too wasn't expecting anything as professional as this--fantastic stuff.

Right, reinstalled quicktime (which took about 20 minutes because of iTunes integration, bleh) and got the shit working fine.
FINE being the keyword here

Did we mention the documentary will be narrated by Morgan Freeman?

A sample:

The first night in the band is the toughest, no doubt about it. They march you in naked as the day you were born, skin burning and half blind from that delousing shit they throw on you, and when they put you in that van... and those doors slam home... that's when you know it's for real. A whole life blown away in the blink of an eye. Nothing left but all the time in the world to think about it.

just read all the production journal entries on the DorsiaFilms website, they make a great read. Have I said yet how cool this project is?

Obviously the September date of expected release in the original message isn't correct...

I keep giving myself very aggressive deadlines and I keep blowing right through them.

That, and Morgan Freeman is being a huge douche about his contract.

I don't know what to tell anyone other than that the film is still a few months away from being edited completely. Thanks for your patience.
