The "Soundtracker" DVD Giveaway

soundtrackerdvdWhen a man's obsession with the world as captured through sound becomes the subject of a documentary, Soundtracker is born. Learn about Gordon Hempton's career driving across the Pacific coast of the United States capturing sounds and exploring the world in a way that few people have ever attempted. To celebrate its recent release, JustPressPlay is giving away a copy on DVD.

There are very few places of quiet left in the United States.

 For the past thirty years, Emmy Award-winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton, called  “America's foremost guru of quiet” By USA Today, has made it his life’s mission to find and record these places before they are gone completely. Soundtracker, arriving on DVD this September courtesy of IndiePix, follows Hempton on the road and into the wilderness as he travels throughout America’s West in search of these quiet places.Unwilling to give up when the noise of civilization intrudes upon his every recording, his quest takes on new dimensions as he begins to search for a different kind of sound that captures his imagination and the spirit of America.  Shot throughout the Pacific Northwest and sound-mixed to incorporate Gordon’s own pristine binaural recordings, Soundtracker, an Official Selection of Hot Docs, Sedona International Film Festival and Telluride MountainFilm, explores the sounds and the soul of an uncompromising artist.

To win Soundtracker on DVD, you just have to do two things:

1) Follow @JustPressPlay on Twitter

Win "Date Night" on DVD

datenightdvdEver had a really bad date? Not because the other person involved, but because nothing goes right? Well, save yourself the trouble and instead win a copy of Date Night, Steve Carrell and Tina Fey comedy on DVD from JustPressPlay.

One ordinary couple. One crazy night. The uproarious story of mistaken identity starring two of the world’s biggest comedic talents, Date Night arrives on Blu-ray and DVD August 10 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Filled with non-stop laughs and outrageous situations, Date Night follows Steve Carell (“The Office”) and Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) as a sensible, loving couple with two kids and a house in suburban New Jersey. Their typical date nights include a run-of-the-mill evening with little to no romance, but one night they decide to reignite the spark by going to Manhattan’s hottest new restaurant… without a reservation. What happens next is a wild ride that goes hilariously awry, as they embark on a dangerous series of crazy adventures to save their lives, and their marriage.

Directed by comedy maestro Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum films) Date Night also features an all-star supporting cast including Mark Wahlberg (Max Payne), James Franco (Pineapple Express), Mila Kunis (“That 70s Show”), Common (Just Wright), Taraji Henson (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) and Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”). The Date Night two-disc Blu-ray with Digital Copy and DVD feature an all-new extended edition of the film with never-before-seen hilarious footage, plus a gag reel, Date Night PSAs, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and much more.

Win "Wade in the Water" on DVD

wadeinthewaterchildrendvdThe Gulf Region simply can’t catch a break.  As the clean-up from the most recent disaster continues, Wade in the Water, Children offers a poetic and devastating look at life in the Crescent City through the eyes of its youngest citizens utilizing a passionate mixture of private videos, uncensored interviews and school-day adventures.  Following the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the film is a “devastating, first-hand account of life in post-Katrina New Orleans, told from the mouths of babes who are surviving it under outrageous living conditions.”

No one set out to make a film: six months after Katrina, filmmakers Elizabeth Wood and Gabriel Nussbaum moved to New Orleans with a free art program, intended to help students creatively express their thoughts in response to the chaos of the storm. Their documentary-film class at Singleton Charter School at the local YMCA invited students to take video-cameras home and tell their stories on their own terms. The results quickly transcended the classroom. 300 hours of deeply personal video-tape later, Wade in the Water, Children took shape.

If you want to win Wade in the Water, Children on DVD there are only two things you have to do:

1) Follow JustPressPlay on Twitter

2) Tweet the following message (Each tweet counts as an entry into the contest; limit one per day):
