"Shifting Sands" on DVD
Are you interested in purchasing a DVD of Jamie's very first acting venture on film?

Anita, over at the Jamie Bamber Forum, has been in contact with Simon Birkhead, Jamie's classmate who directed and produced "Shifting Sands" as a student film back during Jamie's days at college. He has received some requests for DVD copies of the film, but not yet enough to order a run.

At this point there is no projected date for the availability, nor even a set price, though because it is a limited run it is expected to be on the expensive side. For now, we're just trying to get a head-count of interested buyers that can be passed along to Mr. Birkhead.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of this DVD, you can post to the thread at the Bamber Forum, or add your comment here and I'll pass the count along.

For now, you already have.
We just need a head-count at this point.

If there is enough of a response to go ahead with a run of the DVD's, we'll get instructions on ordering at that time.

Whee, baby Jamie! Depends on the final price, of course, but in principle I am interested. :0)

I'd be interested, but can't 100% commit until there is a rough estimate of price and I know if it will be a region free dvd. None of my players play region 2. :(

I'm trying to get confirmation on the region issue, but I'm fairly certain that the last time the DVD's were made available they were multi-region friendly.

I'm also trying to get a ball-park estimate for the price.

Cool. :) I know I feel like I'm the ONLY person who doesn't have a multi-region player, but I don't have room for another one!

I bought a DVD last time copies, and Simon Birkenhead was very helpful with the regional stuff--he had them made up for the different areas. There's a bit of extra material that wasn't on the videotape version--a few outtakes of some of the scenes, including The Kiss, with JB getting exasperated and a little pissed off at a fellow actor who kept acting like a jerk and spoiling the take.

There's info on the film -- and 'baby pictures' here:
http://go.to/shiftingsands. Simon's very protective of his copyright for this film--and who can blame him?--so please ask permission before using the pictures.

I'd be interested, but I have no idea if I'd have the money for it when he actually produces them. *pout*
