‘In Transition1.0′ was a huge success. Shown thousands of times around the world, the film has done a huge amount to support initiatives and give them a good “so this is what Transition is” resource. Things have moved on a lot since then, so we are going to make a second one… provisionally titled (imaginatively) “In Transition 2.0″. Emma Goude (see below right), who directed the first one, is back at the helm, so here is her first guest blog setting out her plans for the new film…
“In Transition 2.0 is underway. Transition Network have green lighted the budget and formed a dream team to make it happen: Emma Goude, Beccy Strong and Emilio Mula.
It’s not surprising the first documentary is already here on the Transition Movement, given the speed at which initiatives are springing up around the world. Emma Goude’s superb “In Transition 1.0″ should only add fuel to the spreading fire. While the film touches on Transition efforts worldwide, this is a Brit production through and through. It seems they have taken off the training wheels.
It has been just over a month since the DVD of ‘In Transition’ was launched and I thought it might be good to give an update. The film was posted onto Vimeo, where it has been watched over 2,500 times, and around the same on YouTube. It has also been shown on the Community Channel. Sales of the 2 disc DVD set have been good, and the feedback on the film itself and also on all the extras has been excellent. Transition groups can buy bulk copies of the DVD at very good discounts. Being able to make ‘In Transition 2.0′ will depend, in part, on our being able to recoup the expenses of the first one, so do buy copies and tell people about the film! Also, do let us know how you found the DVD and the extras, as well as stories about any screenings you might have done. Here are a few of the testimonials we have been sent by people who have shown the film. You can order copies of ‘In Transition’ here.
‘In Transition 1.0′ is now also available on Vimeo, in higher resolution than on YouTube (and with the still-missing Part 3). Don’t forget that the film is available in even higher quality on the DVD which contains a veritable smorgasbord of extras and outtakes and wonderful stuff. Enjoy. Send the link to your friends…. Thanks to Alex Munslow for enabling this.
As I trailed yesterday, ‘In Transition’ is now available to view in full on YouTube (apart from Part 3, following soon)… don’t forget that you can also buy copies of the DVD which feature the film itself as well as hours of wonderful Transitioney extras; find out more here. Anyway, sit back and enjoy. We love it.
