"The Perfect Sleep" opens theatrically next week

The day I've been waiting a LONG time for has finally arrived--"The Perfect Sleep", a film-noirish extravaganza that I shot is about to start its theatrical release.

We worked very hard on the visuals for this film and I believe that it shows. We shot principal photography on the F900 and it will be screened in anamorphic 35mm.

See the trailer at:

The Perfect Sleep

Opens 3/13 at the Laemmle Sunset 5, Los Angeles
Opens 3/20 at the Quad Cinema, NYC

Chicago, Dallas and Portland dates TBD

Congratulations, Charles. I hope there's a celebration in the works.

You'll post the Portland, etc. dates? My chances of getting to Portland are slim, but one never knows--and that's assuming you're talking Oregon. :)

Charles....I happen to have the pleasure to work with Richard Davis's brother, Mike here in Sacramento CA. In a recent phone between them call I was privy to and participated in, I discovered that you had started as the DOP on "Scrubs" and Richard has followed you.

I had mentioned I knew of you through this site, and found out about your friendship with Richard. I think I told him that as is often the case I find here some really high level pros (like you) participate here on this site with others well below on the learning curve in their maturation in the craft, and in doing so offer some otherwise unavailable and valuable perspective.

I remember saying to Richard's brother Mike, after our phone call, that if folks like Richard and Charles would make movies, their productions would be to die for. (Almost a quote.)

Well you have, and I cannot wait. I'd love to bring all my little production company members/players to see it with you in LA !

It looks awesome.

One correction Chris--both Rich and I were primarily the camera and Steadicam operators on "Scrubs" although we both did some DP work on the show on the odd occasion.

Bruce, no DVD release set but I'm sure it will be at some point. I hope it gets a Blu-Ray release.

Hey Charles,

Looks like an awesome movie. I have not been to a theater, for a movie, in years (5+), but I will go and see yours.

Congratulations!

Mike

thanks Mike! Hard to know at this point how extensive the distribution will become, it will roll out starting in just a few city initially (I like your city a lot though, I worked on a movie there years ago).

"The Perfect Sleep" opened tonight to a near-sellout crowd. I arrived late from work but saw the second half--I'm very pleased with the 35mm print. I hope some of you who are LA-based will go to see it (preferably this weekend, we need the numbers to hold the engagement over). I think we neatly managed to avoid a lot of the "low-budget" or "digital-looking" traps with the film (which was indeed low-budget and shot digitally)!

One of the most complimentary reviews was from iFMagazine.com, excerpted below:

"The cinematography, in a word, is simply stunning. I know thatís two words, but thatís how surprisingly breathtaking they are. Style is the word of the day. True to its noir roots, every scene THE PERFECT SLEEP is dark and moody, exquisitely thought out to deliver dramatic punch."

I look forward to hearing your comments.

A little late getting out of the gate, but this has a few laughs:

Held over!

Due to impressive ticket sales, "The Perfect Sleep" is being held over for an additional week at the Laemmele Sunset 5, so you LA-based DVI'ers, go see it!

As far as other cities outside NYC (opening on the 27th), no word yet.

Charles that viral video was ace, the Lťon bit had me laughing so hard. The movie itself looks rather impressive too, hopefully I'll get a chance to see it sometime!
