Ah, I really dig the music and the way the sentences are edited. How much exposure will this film get? I'd love to see it.

The footage places you in the time of the events. The music is great - it evokes memories of the old police dramas. A documentary like this is long overdue. Can't wait to see it.

I really like the looks of this one and can't wait to see.
I love the clips from the real crime scenes.

Excellent...how and when can it be bought?

I've changed the link to the trailer; it now goes to a youtube-type site that features a much better version in terms of quality, also faster download. Hope everyone checks it out.

Thanks to everyone who's watched the trailer or posted comments on Tom's message board. It's great to get some feedback after all the time spent working on the film. Right now I'm focused on getting the website—huntingthezodiac.com—up and running, hopefully this week. The site will have more info about the contents of the film, plus some extra video clips of the people featured in it. My goal is to initially offer the film over the web as a streaming download. A small fee will be involved, and the file won't be saveable to a hard drive. I really believe that distribution is the final frontier for independent filmmakers to conquer. It's now possible to shoot and edit films using (relatively) affordable equipment, but we haven't quite come up with a way to control the levers of distribution, and thus we're at the mercy of TV executives or festival committees. I think the web holds great promise in shifting more power to the filmmaker, so I'd like to see what kind of response HTZ will get as a web-based viewing experience. As soon as I have the mechanics figured out, I'll post the details here. As for DVD sales, I'll cross that bridge after I've exhausted the possibilities for online distribution. Thanks a lot for your interest in the film. I hope it lives up to your expectations.
