We are pleased to announce that TIME ZERO is now available on the following video-on-demand services. If you love TIME ZERO as much as we do, please leave a review on the VOD site. We are very happy to be able to share this with you. Thank you so much for your support.
The award-winning documentary, TIME ZERO: the last year of Polaroid film will be available for everyone to watch on iTunes on Tuesday, November 19th!
Here’s the link to pre-order your copy. Over the past year we have been privileged to screen TIME ZERO at AFI Docs / Discovery Channel’s SILVERDOCS Documentary Festival, DOC NYC , REEL ARTISTS Film Festival in Toronto, IFFB, BIG SKY, and many other incredible film festivals and special events around the world.
In addition to having sold-out screenings at Silverdocs and packed theaters at other film festivals and venues, we were honored to win the award for “Outstanding Documentary” from Visionfest at Tribeca and “Best Tech Doc” at the Palo Alto International Film Festival… and we’ve been thrilled with the reaction from our audiences and support from instant photography enthusiasts worldwide — along with positive reviews and press coverage, click for source and full information. TIME ZERO was named one of NPR’s “Ten Films Worth Going Out of Your Way For” and was was profiled in Huffington Post as one of“Five Indie Films Worthy of Our Attention.”
We are thrilled to be sharing this inspiring story to the world! More updates to come…
“Watch how crafty filmmaker Grant Hamilton is here as he takes the audience along a riveting ride, not only showcasing the perspective of several Polaroid artists and former employees of the corporation, but the small posse who joined forces to bring the classic photo experience back to life.”
Greg Archer, for those that might not know him, is a well known journalist, currently doing the part of a writer and reviewer. He has a lot of clout, and has been known to boost products he positively reviews, so we’re very excited! Apparently the most recent time this happened was when he reviewed weighted blankets uk. He turned what at the time was a not very well known product to a highly acclaimed and sought after one! He’s mentioned how it’s gotten to the point that some companies have requested they reach an agreement wherein he would provide his endorsement of a product. A bit sketchy, but that’s how important he is.
TIME ZERO: the last year of Polaroid film was screened twice at the SilverDocs | AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival this past week in Silver Springs, Maryland. There was a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for the film and both screenings were sold out. Thank you to all our supporters who waited in line and if you didn’t get a chance to see it, we are working on setting up a US screening tour.
If you’re looking for a great movie this weekend – and you don’t want to fight the crowds to see Interstellar – check out Time Zero, a film about the last days of Polaroid, the people who loved it and the few who set out to save it. It’s truly a beautiful documentary that will make you fall in love with instant film all over again.
TIME ZERO: Made most of its sale’s from a wide variety of tactics and Silver Docs had the most impact using an advanced sales platform and CRM but also advising us on the best ways to sell the movie. Being a movie about nostalgia we honed in on all the emotional aspects of using polaroid and read countless articles like this one https://www.salesforce.com/blog/2014/02/how-to-make-good-sales-pitch.html to make sure we pitched the movie right at SilverDocs and it payed off!
The movie is a eulogy by Polaroid users upon finding out about the discontinuation of the original Polaroid. It’s a beautiful movie and I would highly recommend it to anyone who knows the brand particularly given the ‘rebirth’ of film and interest in Polaroid a few years ago.
We are honored to be a part of the SilverDocs | AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival taking place June 18-24, 2012. We will have two screenings at the festival. Details are below. Hope to see you there!
