The 2011 Heartland Film Festival Closing Night Event feature film Shuffle is now available to add to your Netflix DVDs by mail queue. The film will also be available to stream on iTunes, Xbox, Playstation, Amazon VOD and cable VOD on inDemand soon.
Shuffle is the tale of a man who begins experiencing his life out of order; every day he wakes up at a different age, on a different day of his life, never knowing where or when he’s going to be once he falls asleep. He’s terrified and wants it to stop – until he notices a pattern in his experience, and works to uncover why this is happening to him – and what or who is behind it.
Part “Twilight Zone”-style mystery, part Frank Capra fantasy, Shuffle stars TJ Thyne, star of the hit TV show Bones, in his first turn as a leading man in a feature film. The film’s voluminous prosthetic old age make-up is by Barney Burman, winner of the 2010 Academy Award for Best Make-up for Star Trek. The film was written, directed and scored by two time Crystal Heart Award-winner Kurt Kuenne, filmmaker of the acclaimed documentary Dear Zachary: a letter to a son about his father and the popular short film Validation (HFF 2007; Winner – Best Short, Audience Award, Crystal Heart Award), also starring TJ Thyne.
The DVD will be released on August 21st and sold at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, and Blockbuster. The DVD features both the critically-acclaimed black & white version and the color version of the film. It features 50 minutes of bonus content, including a 30-minute documentary on the making of the film, shot by Dan Austin, and a 20-minute collection of video diaries from the award-winning festival run by Shuffle director Kurt Kuenne.
Shuffle is also coming to theaters near you soon! Screenings will happen only if a specific number of tickets are reserved by the given deadline, so act fast. Check out when/where it will be screened in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, West Palm Beach, Cleveland, North Hollywood, St. Louis, and Honolulu.
