Rachel's Blog: Get Mirrormask an Australian Release

Mon, 18 Jul 2005

As I mentioned in my Continuum 3 Report, Sony Australia has no current plans to give Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's film Mirrormask a release here. They're going to make us do a lot of work to see it on the big screen, so here goes.

I've typed up a form letter which you can download here (Rich Text Format 8Kb). Fill in your name. Sign it. Post it. A paper letter still carries much more weight than an email, petition or fax. In fact if the mailroom at Sony Pictures recieves a petition with a couple of hundred signatures, chances are they'll count it as one letter. We must innundate them! It's only a little effort and think how warm and fuzzy you'll feel.

Feel free to change the text around to suit yourself, I don't mind.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can view the Mirrormask trailer at Sony Pictures' US site.

I have sent the letter. Neil Gaiman was here in Brisbane recently. Fantastic night ! Got my Mirrormask book signed and can't believe the McKean movie stills in it. Glad someone's doing this. If I can be of any further help, please let me know.
