Post Carpet Racers World Premiere screening in Queens NY

Just a heads up... Please excuse the intrusion...

The screening of the feature movie Carpet Racers in Queens is next week, Friday, November 13th at 8:00 PM!

As some of you already know, Carpet Racers filmed at local NYC metro tracks such as R/C Madness and 360 Speedway. Shots are taken of racers, the tracks, and interviews of multiple racers from CT and NYC.

We have been getting a lot of response about tickets. You can buy on-line NOW or at the box office after November 3rd.
http://www.queensfilmfestival.com/tickets/

Proceeds from the Carpet Racers ticket sales go directly to the families of fallen firefighters of NY killed not in the line of duty.

This is a one night show so if you want to be a part of history, check it out and please spread the word!

Stars from the film such as Paul Lemieux, Chris Tosolini, Snowbird Nationals founder and promoter Mike Boylan, and Team Trinity/Epic founder CEO Ernest Provetti and more, will all be in attendance!

Ticket is only $15 bucks and this gets you into the screening (HD) and also the after party which includes food and beverages as well as live entertainment. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS.

Lots of info on FaceBook under Carpet Racers if you are not already a fan.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Carpet...rs/99973807297

Other info: DVD release to be announced at the premiere in NYC. (holidays) DVD release in NTSC. PAL under review. A release in iTunes and other on-line outlets TBD.

Post Carpet Racers update

Happy Holidays!

A quick update on Carpet Racers. We have played in six film festivals and have submitted to a handful more. We will be playing in the LA area sometime early in 2010.

DVD authoring is under way as we speak. We hope to have this shipping to preorders within two weeks, but we are unclear if the distribution will happen that fast. Keep checking back here, FaceBook or the CR website.

I found about this movie from our national (Finnish) rc-forum and got interested about it. Well my enthusiasm about the movie got a small hit when I found out that DVD's shipping and handling costs would be $29.99 plus the movie itself is $19.99.

Well I just have to wait and try to find another way to see this movie...

Post Shipping - fixed!

The international shipping charges are under $15 USD - the $29 was a place holder until the USPS got back to the distributors. All fixed now! Shipping and handling within the USA is $5.
DVDs to ship the week of Jan 25th give or take a few days.
Hope that helps!

That is a good point!
Carpet Racers is looking into iTunes as well as NetFlicks, etc.

yes, sell it downloadable and it will be easier for some to see the movie. like me that dont want to wait for the DVD to release :P haha!

Hopefully there will be a new movie about the RC world. maybe something wider that has focus on all the different classes.

Keep it up!

You can fly to the snowbirds for $4000 dollars and see it for free. They are offering a free showing there. Any otheyr way would most likely infringe on copyright laws.

Yeah a downloadable version would be awesome. I don't want to pay the $15 for shipping. The PS3 will play .avi files no problem, so who needs disks anymore?
