The Celebratory 100-Fan Post! New Trailer, Videos, and More!

Hello once again, our faithful slaves. Wow, a lot has happened since the last blog entry! First off, though...

WE HAVE REACHED 100 FANS ON THE ISLAND WARS FACEBOOK FAN PAGE! WOOHOO! This actually happened last week, but we haven't updated the blog since then. As of this writing, the Island Wars page has 113 fans. We cannot thank you guys enough for the support! Honestly if it wasn't for the show of support or fans asking us constantly "when is it coming out? We must see it!" we probably wouldn't have kept it up. We told you guys we'd do something cool for the 100-fan-mark, and we did! As those of you following the Facebook page already know, we released a NEW Island Wars trailer. This is pretty big, saying there was only one trailer and one teaser out before now. Truth be told, though, this it's much more like an extended "Island Wars Awkward Moment" video (which is not a bad thing at all). We saw the success of the "Awkward Moment" videos and translated it into a trailer! So enjoy the trailer below! (video below)



Second to note is that we came out with a NEW "Island Wars Awkward Moment" video. Well, okay, most of you have probably already seen it since we made a big deal of it on the fan page, but it is there nonetheless! We have decided to post these weekly every Sunday, so mark your calendar! This awkward moment features the wonderful acting of guest star Brody Barrett, who plays a newscaster named Boo Ryan (obviously nothing like the famous northern Virginia weatherman BOB Ryan!). It's just a tiny clip from a much longer scene featuring (in our opinion) one of the funniest parts of the entire movie. (video below)



The reason we didn't release a new "Awkward Moment" video yesterday was because we released a new trailer instead, and we didn't want to steal the heat from either of them. Thus, the new "Awkward Moment" video will be released this Wednesday (two days from now, for those who calendarily-challenged).

Though it isn't related to Island Wars at all, we came out with a random video on our YouTube page called "Man Thinks He's Taylor Swift." The man is Jimmy, and the video is of his best rendition of "You Belong With Me" by Taylor Swift. While it's not Island Wars, it's still Umbrellaman, and most people who have seen it say it's funny. (video below)




Well, enjoy the new videos and new info! Oh, and as always there IS MORE COMING SOON! Remember to become a fan on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube channel for even more cool awesome radical snaztastic stuff.

Happy Trails,

Island Wars Release and New YouTube Series

Well hello again, guys! What did I tell you in the last post? I told you there would be some big Island Wars updates coming soon, and I wasn't lying. Just as this post's title says, we do have a tentative release date set. Buuut, before you find out when that is, there is even more cool information that you NEED to know about!

First off, we have begun a new weekly video series on YouTube of "Awkward Moments" from Island Wars. They're just short little clips of things that (in some cases taken out of context) just seem funny and/or awkward. Believe me, there are PLENTY, and we hope to keep this series up until the film releases on... wait a second! There's still more information before you get to figure out the release date! But seriously, go watch it, rate it, and comment on it! Oh and while you're there click the "Subscribe" button on the video description. The video itself is below.





Second, we FINALLY have got the Facebook "Fan Page" up and running for Island Wars earlier today. Go on the page and click "Become a Fan" and any status updates or new info can be shown on your homepage just like any of your friends' status updates! I invited a bunch of people, but we need everyone to also invite their friends. There is a Fan Page Box below, which shows live updates from the fan page.

Let's get the word out about Island Wars and expand the fan base! We only have until the film releases in... well I suppose it's finally time for the tentative release date to be revealed. You all HAVE waited long enough, and have even had to read this entire post. Thus, (drum roll please!)

Island Wars will be released this winter break! Woohoo! We think it seems like the best time to release it. It will give us time to work out any of the kinks in production, and many of the fans who are looking forward to it will be home from college by then. Don't worry, we plan to show it more than once, and hopefully produce DVD's for people to take with them. Along with this we hope to also release the film online after it's first few airings, though we are still looking for the best way to do this. More info will be coming soon, so STAY TUNED!

Happy Trails,
Sam.

(PS the "Facebook Fan Box" shown in this post is also permanently at the very bottom of this page, and there is also a constant "Twitter Updates" feed on the top left of this page. Once again, become a fan on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!)
