Over the past few days, people have been voting for the Means of Production to be release for free online. And since DVD stock is depleted (and DVDs are a dying media), I thought “Why not?”….

Yes yes… I realise that 2 and a half months ago we were all getting hyped up about the ‘world wide’ premier of Means of Production (and rightly so!)
However VAS Entertainment have taken up the film and will officially release it world wide this April.
So what does this mean for those of use who’ve already been through all the hype? Well we get to do it all over again, of course!
But we still need your help to raise awareness if this British made production is to become a world wide success. So don’t stop talking about it – especially to your Sri Lanken pen pal – and feel free to embed the above video in your web-site or blog.
You may even want to become a fan (Facebook) and write a review, but most importantly: enjoy the film!

Chris Stevenson introduces the Means of Production Premiere at Leeds University. But before we get started, it’s time to warm up the 140 person strong crowd…
With a friendly game of BINGO! With simply tons of prizes provided by Pyranha, there was much fun had by all.
Once the BINGO! has ended and the film is ready to start, the crowd rush to the toilet leaving Chris alone and ad libbing – desperately stalling for time. But not to worry…
It’s Tom Parker Kamikazi stand-up to the rescue. Dive-bombing with such classics as “Doctor doctor, I feel like a pair of curtains” and “A seal walks into a club”.
And once the general awkwardness is out of the way, and everyone has wiped the tears from their eyes, it’s on with the show; Means of Production in all its glory.
But then what?
Well it’s off to our own private venue in town for cocktails and cigars. A place where you can mingle with all the stars of the film and make informal complaints about the horribly inappropriate bingo calls.
Of course it is important, during any point in the evening, to be able to keep your sponsors happy, as Ms James is clearly aware.
Owen Jackson gets down with a spot of ballroom dancing to impress the new Leeds Uni Freshers.
Finally… a photo my grandmother should be happy with!
Chris Eastabrook (Top Left) is mobbed by doting fans.
All in all the night was a fantastic success with much credit going to LUUCC and in particular: Naibm Stack and Martin Rogers for organising the event.
Also Dave and Shaun Hazel for making sure everything sounded fine and that the bingo and movie screening went down without a hitch.
And obviously all the countless individuals who turned up and made the night one we’ll never forget.
The film is now available from www.mopmovie.co.uk.

There’s not a lot to say really. Just one more big shout out about the Means of Production release and world premier; beginning in Leeds, going via Uganda and Canada, and finishing up in New Zealand.
There are already over 100 confirmed guests coming to Leeds, and tickets for the showing and afterparty are selling fast! All proceeds go to SOFT POWER EDUCATION.
Oh! And it’s also my birthday… So there’s not a lot else to say except:
Be there or simply don’t be at the center of the universe that evening.
