Cory Macbee’s feature The American Astronaut is considered a cult classic. Thanks to an effective DIY release strategy and strong word of mouth the film has enjoyed a long life since its release in 2001. When it came time to craft his newest film Stingray Sam, Cory took a different approach. Stingray Sam launches today coming to “many screens near you.” There’s a theatrical premiere, a live streaming event (Cory call’s it a bootleg), pay downloads and a special DVD which can be ordered online. Much of the activity can be found on Stingraysam.com Later tonight audiences can enjoy the festivities in LA from the comfort of their own home as the film makes its theatrical premiere.
