There's been a tradition over the years at FXhome.com for some of the more prolific filmmakers to put together DVDs of their work. Most recently we've seen top quality releases of Project One, NightCast and Between the Lines, each packed with special features that surpass most Hollywood releases.

It's now Waser's turn to enter this vicious cabaret with the dual release of two mammoth DVDs – Cabinet Squirrel Productions: The Anthology and Zombie Force.

Standing on the shoulders of giants

Zombie Force, of course, features Cabinet Squirrel's feature length undead comedy, while The Anthology collects every other film they've ever produced, long and short, including such classics as It's Coming, Electric Mans 8000 and The Wacky Three.

“I have actually wanted to make a DVD of my work ever since the Twisted Studios DVD came out in 2004,” explains Waser, aka Andreas Petersen. “Also, I'm a DVD collector, and I love nothing more than a DVD packed with excellent features, so my goal was to make something that I would be happy to have in my collection.”

That's no idle boast: both DVDs are full to bursting with extras, from multiple commentaries and in-depth Making Of documentaries to out-takes and effects tests. In traditional Cabinet Squirrel style, it's all very tongue-in-cheek, with even the menus and box designs proving highly amusing.

“If you're a fan of my work, this is the most complete collection you could want,” promises Waser. “If you're not the biggest fan of my work, but think I'm an OK guy, the commentaries, behind the scenes footage, and so on and so forth, may interest you anyway. If you don't like my movies or me, then I am now depressed, and will try harder to impress you.”

How can I get one of these DVDs?!

Presuming you do like either Waser or his work, or hopefully both, the DVDs can be bought either individually or as a discounted double-pack, with payment via Waser's PayPal address (apandreas31@hotmail.com).

“The North America price is $15 for one DVD, $20 for both,” says Waser. “The international price (aka the 'I Hate Freedom' price) is $20 for one DVD, $25 for both. All prices include shipping. As soon as I get your payment, I will hand package the DVD with love, affection, and envelopes I got at my local supermarket.”

Both DVDs are available right now, so if you want to discover the answer to the age-old question “was that floating bag in It's Coming intentional or not?”, head over to PayPal.

Awesome to hear, congrats waser. I'd buy them but all my free money is gong towards buying props and costumes at the moment. Fingers crossed for an FXhome "Win Waser DVD" contest.

NICE!

Now I feel stupid for asking if there were still going to be Spotlights and community-oriented bits of news.

All-in-all, great stuff, I might consider buying a DVD, as I seem to have grown fonder and fonder of Waser's stuff.

I haven't had time to have a full look around the DVDs yet, as there's simply too much stuff on them (plus we're a bit busy at the moment...), but I'd say they're well worth getting hold of.

Almost every movie has an accompanying commentary, which is a great insight into the minds of Waser and his team - whether that's a good thing or not is still open to debate. wink

It's a cool package though - I always love being able to put stuff the community has made on the shelf. It kinda reminds me why we're all doing this in the first place.
