Tower Block commentary

When Tower Block was released on UK DVD and Blu-ray, for various reasons there were no commentaries. So, just like I did for Cockneys Vs Zombies, I've recorded my own commentary - you can download it, and play it with your copy of the movie.

As before, there are two versions - DVDs have a slightly higher frame rate, so movies end up being slightly shorter than their normal length. I recorded one for the DVD, and have digitally stretched a copy so that it'll fit the Blu-ray version - download whichever version you have, they're the same audio just different lengths.

You won't need to sync, it's the same length as the movie, and being a couple of seconds off won't matter. Just start the movie and commentary playing at the same time.

SERIOUS WARNING: DO NOT listen to this before you watch the movie for the first time. It will RUIN it - I talk about things before they happen, you'll miss all the dialogue, and it won't make any sense. This is ONLY for people who have seen the movie. Feel free to download it, but WAIT until you've already seen the movie before you do the commentary version. Or I will send SNIPERS.

If you don't have a copy of the movie, you can get it in most good shops, or from Amazon on DVD or Blu-ray, or Blinkbox, or iTunes. Have a look around for the best price, they vary quite a bit. It's not on Lovefilm Instant or Netflix *yet*, but should be soonish - and should already be a rentable DVD from Lovefilm etc. Other countries: it will be heading your way, don't worry - it's been picked up for US distribution (with an early screening in Colorado on May 4th), and is already out in Europe here and there.

Like the CvsZ commentary, it was recorded on a cheap headset so I could hear the audio, which means it's fairly ordinary sound quality. I've saved them as mp3 files, as that seemed easiest for everyone. Thank you again to Matt Goble for all the technical information about the different lengths/speeds of DVDs and Blu-rays.

Thank you for all the support for the movie before and after it came out, I really appreciate it. Smaller UK movies live or die purely on word of mouth, so I'm very grateful that you've all been so lovely about this and CvsZ. Hope you like the next one!
