Wow. That says alot for Team Thunderstruck these days. Since I last updated the news updates much has changed! Let’s run down a few things:
First, I finished editing the new film, Thunderstruck II. With an amazing new soundtrack, better editing, better filming, better riders, and awesome footage, this film is an honor for me to produce. And with the amazing pre-order response and awesome internet reviews the film has received I couldn’t be happier! Thanks to all you who support our riders and our film and we hope you meet us at one of the many snow shows we will be attending this winter.
Second, I had an enclosed trailer FULL of films, both DVD and VHS, arrive in my driveway on Saturday, August 16th. Team Thunderstruck hillclimber’s Doug Anderson and Wes Little and Doug’s lovely wife Tracy pulled the enclosed from Utah just in time for our huge premiere kick-off event in Helena. We had a huge BBQ before the Premiere at my house where all the riders showed up and reminisced and just had a blast! Then, off to the premiere where we packed the Myrna Loy Theater in Helena with 400 excited fans. With almost 1500 horsepower parked on stage, Wade Durbin from FLY RACING and I threw prizes and freebies out to the crowd. The movie went on at 7:15pm and it was an absolute riot! Thanks to all who came and joined us in the celebration.
Next came FILLING orders! All day Sunday, Monday and Tuesday we invoiced, billed, packed and shipped thousands of films to make sure those who ordered had them before this weekend! What a fun job!
Finally, about the DVD. There are special sections on the DVD that can only be accessed with a little bit of work. Also, Fabcraft, Cutler’s, Van Amburg, Western Power Sports, and Highmark Recreation all have special films dedicated to them under the sponsor section. Under the “Extras” section the Avalanche link does not work but if you go to DISPLAY on your remote, hit Title 10, you’ll enter into the audio-only Avalanche Story. Also, witness the new Acid Lake music videos and a few movie trailers.
We are looking forward to a fun fall with more premieres, public showings, snow shows and the like. Next is a whirlwind trip to Haydays in Minnesota so look for the Team Thunderstruck riders to answer any questions you might have! See you there!
