Our Official Release

Just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone who pre-ordered the two-disc special edition DVD of You Look a Lot Like Me, as well as the Movie Companion Book for the film. The response has been amazing and we are really hopeful that this film will do what we hoped it would when we started this journey nearly seven years ago.

Some of you have e-mailed to share your feedback, which we really value and appreciate. Thank you for sharing your stories with us and for letting us know what the film meant to you. That was the reason so many individuals came forward to talk about their experiences on camera—they wanted to make a difference. We told them they would and it seems that they have.

As many of you know, today was the official release date for the film, so You Look a Lot Like Me and the Movie Companion Book will now be readily available for purchase through our storefront.

Thank you, again, to everyone who worked so hard to make this film a reality, from everyone on the crew, to our amazing and generous Kickstarter donors, to the incredibly talented artists who have shown their support for this project in a variety of ways.

We also want to express our appreciation to all of the organizations who were involved in the film and movie companion book, as well as those who took the time to help us with input and support, locating survivors to share their stories, statistical and other research, distributing flyers and additional information about the film, etc.

Most of all, we thank the many, many individuals we interviewed for the film and the book. We are all deeply humbled by their courage and wisdom and we hope that they find the final version of this project worthy of their time and trust.

Thanks again to everyone for your support and enthusiasm and for helping us to raise further awareness about the issue of domestic abuse.

DVD Launch!

We are so pleased that, with our very first blog post, we are also able to announce the official release date of February 1st for our feature-length documentary You Look a Lot Like Me DVD. So many wonderful and thoughtful people contributed to this project and we wouldn’t have been able to bring this film to the public without their help and support. We thank them, again, from the bottom of our hearts.

Leading up to the DVD release date, I can’t help thinking about all of the women and men I’ve interviewed over these past six years. I can remember each of them so vividly and I was deeply honored to have sat across from them and listened to their stories. It’s an experience that will stay with me all of my life.

We weren’t able to bring you everyone’s story, obviously; we’d need ten films for that. But just because many stories didn’t make it into the final version of You Look a Lot Like Me doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be heard. To be remembered. They do. As do all of the stories that remain unspoken. I hope that all those who shared their stories as part of this project—no matter how they were involved—were able to take something positive away from the experience of reaching out in the ways that they did.

Survivor 1 image You Look a Lot Like MeI also dare to hope that this film will do what everyone who participated in it hopes, too: that it will further dialog, action, and change, and that part of that change might occur in someone’s interior life. That they will realize—perhaps for the first time—that they are not alone in what they are experiencing, that they can live a safe life and a whole life, and that that’s what they deserve.

That would be pretty…amazing. And so, the journey begins.
