"1918" the film vs. "Fever Pitch"

We love Farrelly Brothers' films, and eagerly await the release of the American version of "Fever Pitch" in 2005. To clear up some confusion, let us point out a few differences between our film and the upcoming "Fever Pitch".

While "Fever Pitch" is a major full-length motion picture due out in theaters in 2005, our film is a shorter one, which should run approximately 20 minutes in length. The market for "Fever Pitch" is your local megaplex, and the market for ours is independent film festivals, or hopefully, as an added feature to a major future DVD release (any ideas)?

The entire budget for "1918" was probably lower than the catering budget for selected days on "Fever Pitch".

Many of the key cast and crew for "Fever Pitch" are from Hollywood (Jimmy Fallon is from NY and is a Yankees fan), but most of our cast and crew are from Massachusetts. Our script was written in 2001 as an original story about Red Sox fans, and workshopped in a class with over a dozen film students. "Fever Pitch" was based on a novel by Nick Hornby (English Author) about Arsenal Soccer Fans, and made into an English movie in 1997 starring Colin Firth.

Why do we point this out? We want to be sure everyone knows our story is original, unique, and different from "Fever Pitch", and not a knock-off. The two films should compliment each other well!
