    We are getting ready to launch my film "TimeScapes" in a couple of days, and it occurred to me that this film might in fact be the first 4K film ever sold to the public directly? is this correct? Obviously there are 4K films like "Dragon Tattoo" that have played in theaters, but as far as I know, there has never been a 4K film sold to the public as a 4K file or disc? Is that correct?

    I am aware of a short film called "Sintel", but this is a short film and is being given away for free. Are there any other 4K films being sold to the public?

    We are also offering 2560x1440 downloads. Is this also a first? http://timescapes.org/products/default.aspx

    You're the first I have heard of. I'll definitely be buying a "download" of your film. Really looking forward to it.

    We are going live Wednesday, hopefully.

    Hey if any of you guys know any writers or bloggers who might be interested in this 4K angle, let me know.

    I love the idea of 2560px releases like you've been advocating. 1080p on a 2560 monitor is a little sad.

    I am pretty sure the 4K aspect will be a significant publicity draw. Tech / HTPC / film websites will be all over it. I have never played back a 4K file except Sintel and projects I have worked on. Sure makes a significant difference on a 2560 monitor with a viewing distance of 3 feet (versus 1920).
