    Will I ever be able to download and watch this film? I have been following this for years and have been looking forward to it patiently but it seems to be taking forever. I know it was screened at the Chicago pipe show but that must have been 5 or 6 months ago now.

    It looks like a very well done production and I'm hoping that it will be interesting enough to show a few of my friends and family. Perhaps in the vain hope that it will allow them to better understand my love of pipe smoking. Well, I can dream, can't I?

    Does anyone have any information regarding this film and its release?

    Might try asking the filmmakers:

    I am expecting it to at least be as awe-inspiring as a Star Wars with as long as they've had the thing in the lab/studio/cutting room. When I posted about this last (almost the exact question), I got a few steamed responses assuring me that it was coming along and to quit my bitchin'.
    I've thrown some money at it years ago when it was being discussed on the PM radioshow, and if the only place I'll be able to see it is to fly across the US and set in a hotel room... well... I will be VERY disappointed.

    With the sheer amount of terrible documentaries on Netflix, they should at least be able to get it on there if they are able to complete it.

    Perhaps a lack of Mixture 79 has slowed them down.

    Already had but thought I'd ask you chaps too.

    I must confess a similar thought

    Indeed.

    There's a lot that goes into post and especially distributing a film, from Errors and Omissions ( no distributor will touch your film without it) to proper color management and mixing. It generally takes me at least a year for every project. Even "fast"commercials are a couple months. It could be a money issue, it costs about $5,000 for an aggregator, and a couple grand for E&O. They could also be dealing with clearance issues.

    There was a mention on the last radio show http://pipesmagazine.com/blog/radio-talk-show/the-pipes-magazine-radio-show-episode-268/#more-10842

    Something about an auction coming up to raise some funds and that they were close to a release.

    I've already donated. Still waiting to see the release.

    I am glad we have a good admin and responsible moderators.

    Cheers, I'll give that a listen tomorrow when I have time. I have been working through the episodes I have missed of late.

    Honestly, I have not been one of the investors in the project. That sort of thing sits out of my comfort zone but will, of course, be happy to pay for it when released like any other film.

    This film has taken too long. When did they start five years ago? Six? Look this was supposed to be about 90 minute film or so. These people have drug it out for a seeming eternity. And now they are holding an auction for it. You guys can donate if you want but I say "No Mas".

    Yeh, it seems like maybe they are making a career out of one film. I have a buddy who makes one 50 minute documentary a week for TV. if they are doing hipster film over video, they will probably never release it on the computer, which will suck for all of us who sent them money.

    There is a fine line between building anticipation and losing people's interest.

    I can watch a Netflix documentary on Bronies, guys who like My Little Pony, but not Father the Flame . Probably more Bronies than pipesmokers.

    @akfilm:

    Very interesting. Glad to hear from someone in the field about the costs involved.

    @cosmic:

    Maybe we can convince them to lend us a copy that can magically appear on The Pirate Bay.

    Exposure will only help them.

    It worked for this film:

    Yeah man, I’m dying to see this too! I could have sworn it was supposed to be released last year but it seems like it just keeps getting delayed.

    Maybe we can get them to allow Kevin to post this to the PipesMagazine pages.

    It would be funny if they went all out hipster and released it in reel to reel or Betamax.

    Just got a reply to my enquiry with them.

    Yes! It is currently being submitted to many film festivals over the next year and will be released to the world after the festivals are complete. That should be close to mid to end summer.

    Thanks for checking in!!!

    So, Autumn next year it is then chaps.

    Excellent news. Next autumn means about ten months from now, I'd guess, so we'll just have to be patient.
