Wow! The Rose Theatre in Port Townsend is a real class act! Everything about it...the ambiance, the decor, the staff...top notch stuff. Our recent screening there was state of the art...with excellent sound and stunning color. So, thank you Rose Theatre! And, a very special thanks to all the sponsors for their hard work promoting it on behalf of the Wild Olympics Campaign. And, again as always thanks to our wonderful cast and crew...we love you guys. And finally a big thanks to all the folks who packed the house, and signed the petition for the Wild Olympics. It was a great success. And, very sorry to those who were turned away when the show got sold out, but we're looking into doing another show there in the very near future, so I hope you come back. Trust us...it's definitely worth it!

We want to give a big thanks to all those involved who helped make it a success. Our next special screening will be at the historic Rose Theatre in Port Townsend, WA on April 28.

Standing Room Only Crowds!
FEBRUARY 10, 2013
We've been screening Mist to standing room only crowds ever since the premiere in Dec. DVD sales are brisk too. Admittedly we're pretty overwhelmed by how much folks have embraced the film. We sincerely believe it's all about their own personal connection to the beautiful and magical Olympics...and their deep understanding and appreciation for the intrinsic value of the Olympics. One young guy told Robert that it made him weep...with joy. We want to thank everyone who has supported us over the past few months by sponsoring our shows...and especially our inspiring storytellers...Dave, Harvest, Dane and Tim...without whom there wouldn't be an Out of the Mist. We love you guys! Our next screenings are at the end of March. The venues rock and both are benefits for two worthy causes...the Olympic Mountain Rescue at the Admiral Theater in Bremerton, and the Wild Olympics Campaign at the eclectic Rose Theater in Port Townsend. Details to come soon.

Premiere Night Big Success!
DECEMBER 7, 2012
WOW! We had a huge turnout last night at the Mist premiere. When we showed up at 6:30 the theater was already overflowing and they had to start turning people away. But the good folks at Huxley College grabbed another screener from us and quickly opened up another hall for a simultaneous screening so they wouldn't have to go home disappointed. All in all there were 400 people attending. Pretty overwhelming for us to see so many people there and have such a great response to the film. It was the perfect place to premiere ... these folks are passionate about their Olympics. Thanks to everyone involved!
