We know that there are some pre-order customers who will be disappointed that their “exclusive” edition is no longer so special. We understand, and apologize if you feel mislead. We hope you can take pride in knowing that this film wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for pre-orders from people like you. Ultimately, we just need to do what is best for the film, for the modular community, and for us, which is to get this film seen by everyone who wants to see it.
Producers of the modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires have announced that they will be making the uncensored 4-hour ‘Hardcore Edition’ of the film available for purchase again.
The Hardcore Edition of I Dream Of Wires was originally intended to be a limited-edition version for people that supported the production of the film. According to the producers, the decision to make it more widely available came down to there being more interest in the extended cut than in a planned shorter theatrical cut.
Here’s the official announcement:
We’ve decided that we are going to make “I Dream Of Wires: Hardcore Edition” DVDs and BluRays available to purchase again. Please give us about a week, and then you’ll find a shiny new “BUY” button on our website. More details forthcoming.This decision was reached largely due to an overwhelming demand. It seems that a 4-hour documentary about modular synthesizers isn’t as niche as we thought! Comparatively, interest in the theatrical cut seems to be minimal, and so we’ve decided to put those plans on hold, and instead concentrate on IDOW as we feel it was meant to be: 4 hours, HARDCORE!
See the IDOW site for details.
