I fully understand the complexities and politics of getting low-budget, or self-financed projects of the ground, I know how difficult it is I assure you. The problem WibblyWobbly have is that people may stop taking them seriously and will lose interest. It would not be so great a problem if their PR was a little better. A nice website with some clips, some photos, and a detailed rundown of how the project was going that was updated regularly would go a long way to keep people's attention a little. If I wasn't a member of this forum I wouldn't have a clue what this project was about.

The web is the best marketing tool there is and it's free, they should be harnessing it.

Why am I saying all this, 'cos we all wanna see the damn film!
You presume incorrectly. I do not speak for WibblyWobbly.

I will say, though, that you have an interesting way of trying to encourage people to do their best work.

My aim was not to encourage or indeed discourage, I was merely pointing out a few truths. I am sure they are doing their best work - I've seen their credentials, they've worked on high profile documentaries before - I don't doubt their abilities as film makers. Their problem is the perception people have of them.

Either way they must be listening, because there is a trailer on the website now

I confess that when I saw the Southampton Guildhall footage, I was straining my eyes, trying to spot myself on the front row...

I do that. Infact I was looking for people from on here as well knowing what a few people look like having seen them at numerous gigs or on here. It's fun....and sad at the same time

Love the trailer. I remember seeing the screening at Sheffield last year and it was one giant game of 'Spot the Manics Fan'

It's true though. For a band as big as they are, they seem to be remarkably little-known!

I decided to email the WibbyWobbly guys to see how things are going, and got a very nice reply which, amongst other things, confirms the 'brick wall' poster is NOT for the finished product! Which is good news. It's just for taking to events to attract distributor interest etc.
