Our job as filmmakers is to make the most entertaining product we can make within the limitations we have from which to work. The distributors job is to take the product and make it accessible to as many potential customers as possible.
So, there is a very good chance the Purgatory, USA will not, in the end, be called Purgatory, USA. I was a little disappointed when I heard about the potential change, but it is certainly understandable. Purgatory is a Catholic specific term and even though I was hoping to use the title as a simple educational opportunity, I also know, as someone who has studied the Christian niche market extensively, that you don’t want to fragment an already small market by potentially having people think it is a Catholic-only show… which it is not. So we are looking at other possible show names.
We’ll let you know of our progress as we continue through the brainstorming session of potential show names.
