Kurtis here - I understand where you're coming from. We actually all work full time just doing feature films and Summerland has been the smallest film we've done to date. I don't think our approach devalues the film as this was a special experimental way of making a film with close friends and prosumer gear with primarily our own money funding it. We've typically gone the route of selling our other films through sales agents to distributors, and I agree this approach would not be the right move for that, however as we're self releasing the film I don't fully agree and hope our approach inspires others to go out and make their own films without feeling they need to raise a ton of money or have a large crew.
All the best!

Hey Budd! We were technically a Canadian production, so we were ACTRA (Canadian actor's union) signatory and went through the proper channels there. None of our actors were SAG at the time, so Global Rule One didn't affect us. SAG would make things a little more complicated but they have the ULB agreements you could work within.
