While most of you may be leaving tomorrow for Milan, we are wrapping the
London Screenings with impressive performarnce for our brand new thriller
".com For Murder" and heading to our MIFED office.
Our first and only screening in Milan, is Monday the 29th at 11:30 AM, Salla
Lumiere. Otherwise, you can see the film in our own screening room, Office
222/223, Hall A2.
Hopefully, we'll see you there. But if, for all reasons of current events,
you are not going to Italy for this important market, please let us know, so
that we can send you a DVD screener for the movie, if it's still available
for theatrical, video, DVD and TV in your territory. In doing so, please
specify the rights that you'd be interested in.
When you receive the DVD, try to screen it with 5.1 sound. It'll bring you
closer to the big screen qualities we gave this movie.
Also a footnote, that Omega has available for DVD and TV all 12 high profile
features with new digital transfers and new material for DVD. We sold many in
London and we'll continue to sell in Milan.
If you're travelling, bon voyage.
Warm personal regards
President & CEO
