DVDs coming to pre-order in Finland
|Posted September 13, 2010 by Tianyi Pan 2 Thumb-ups|
The DVD disc of Miika Ullakko's independent hit What Became of Us has just "gone gold" and into the production, slated to be released on 24th September.
The pre-orders for the DVD began 1st September at the filmmakers' own online store at http://store.mistyfriday.com and the sales have been rapid. In the first three days of pre-orders the sales exceeded the number of discs the filmmakers' previous movie, Graffiti Within, sold in its three first years, before the title was eventually acquired by a commercial distributor.
At the moment, payment methods are only limited to Finnish systems, although the disc already carries multiple subtitle languages, including English, Swedish, French and Chinese.
"We're always open for new cooperation ideas and distribution deals, and we actually have some other cool things going on that we're going to disclose soon," said Tianyi Pan, the producer of the film.

Two Awards and a Distribution Deal
|Posted November 10, 2009 by Tianyi Pan 2 Thumb-ups|
Hey guys and gals of Wreckamovie,
It's been hectic these last few days, as so many things have happened. But we have some GREAT news for you!
Our film, What Became of Us, has now won at two film festivals. Last weekend we got awarded Best European Feature at the International Film Festival South Africa. Earlier this fall the film won the Best Feature audience award at C&CIFF, France.
The good news don't end here. We managed to get a distribution deal with the biggest cinema chain in Finland, Finnkino. They agreed to screen our film starting from 11th December in Kinopalatsi, Helsinki.
None of this could've happened without your support. We really appreciate all the effort you've done for us. Please, keep spreading the word of mouth about us and usher your friends to come see the film!
New website and the DEMAND possibility

Dear wreckers, especially the ones not speaking Finnish ;)
Along with the site redesign we've finally launched a long-requested English version. We've even got a whole another domain name for that, so please visit www.whatbecameofus.com and tell us what you feel about it.
On a related note, we've now added the DEMAND button on our website. We hope to become the next Paranormal Activity of Finland (and why not the whole world?), so if you want to see your film in a cinema near you, just go and hit that DEMAND button.
Aftermath from the premiere

Dear fellow Wreckers, check out what Essi and Timo thought about our film after its premiere:
"First off you should know that What Became of Us is a no-budget movie that is completely independently made. There is no distributor, no professional actors or even professional film makers involved. Regardless of this What Became of Us is one the best Finnish movies I have seen in years. It is not even in comparison to most of the so-called professional films that are produced in Finland each year. And do you know why? The answer is simple; the movie actually manages to move, make you laugh and surprise you. This is unfortunately more than I can say about most Finnish movies."
