24-minute Deadlock on TV

Deadlock is presented in 4:3 non-widescreen

An exclusive version of Deadlock airs at 22:40 on Wed 9th and 23:16 on Sun 13th September on Finnish nationwide channel FST5, as part of the series RåFilm (eng. RawFilm). The series showcases independent and student films. The TV-version of Deadlock has no additional scenes, dialogue or such - quite to the contrary. The film has been cut down from 40 minutes to 24 to fit the half hour show. A couple of minutes of airtime have been reserved for an interview in which host Jerry Wahlforss asks insightful question which director John Åhman answers with varying success.

Bandwidth-bursting Deadlock downloads

Egads! Deadlock downloads are amassing at an alarming rate. Woo-hoo!

Thanks, people.

Alas, due to the massive amounts of downloads we've decided to close the direct download link for a few days. The torrent download will have to take over for the rest of February, and the streaming version is still up here.

Also, we're tinkering on some new things and some old things. Check back - something's in the works.

Deadlockfilm goes live!

So, the site is finally up now.

Ten years ago today we were in the midst of a gruelling ending scene shoot, with the cottage full of unwieldy teenagers, us included. The firewood situation was looking bad and I hadn't really slept for a week.

Thankfully, that was a long time ago, and today the film and trailers can be viewed in the watch section. Enjoy.
