Thank Yous from Creators for Huge Slingers Response

Sizemore (aka Mike Atherton) and production company Sleepydog's Toby Moores have posted their thanks, on their respective blogs, for the overwhelming response they have had to the teaser trailer that was posted recently (for another look at it, click here).  The trailer has had somewhere close to 80,000 hits overall.  The response and all the comments left where the trailer is posted have been brought to the attention of the networks they are in talks with and should help to make the series a reality. 

Here's the link to Sizemore's blog entry. (make sure to read the comments!)

Slingers Gets a lot of Buzz

Slingers Gets a lot of Buzz

The Slingers teaser (also called a 'sizzle') that was released a week ago was very well received across the web, getting more than 75,000 combined views from its postings on Vimeo, director Steve Barron's site and You Tube.  The buzz started with the sci-fi blogs, but was quickly picked up by more mainstream media outlets.  Here is a sampling of some of the reviews (all are clickable links):

Sci-fi Wire (one photo semi-NSFW)

HeyUGuys (bonus mention of Suicide Brothers in this one!)

Slash Film

Huffington Post

The response has been overwhelmingly positive!  All that love for the 3 minute video has helped the creators along in their goal of bringing this to television (interviews with show creator Sizemore to be posted soon).  For those who haven't seen the teaser yet (or may just want to enjoy Tom's performance again), click here.
