I'm sure things got delayed due to all the post-Emmy award parties that Katco had to attend...

...And all I wanted was 3 hours of Ronnie DeFeo in 4K hi-def video in time for Christmas... was it too much to ask?

Especially since he said there would be no edits or anything. So post production would consist of slapping some credits and titles onto the stupid thing and then doing some color-correcting.

Oh wait. This is Ryan. Screw the color-correcting.

Almost three months ago...
SHATTERED HOPES: THE TRUE STORY OF THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS
25 September ·
We will have some details coming on the DVDs, as well as some updated info on the expansion of VOD worldwide to some new platforms that will grant wider accessibility of the entire Shattered series. We just don't have ALL of the details yet.
...guess he's still waiting for those "details"... :doh:

Don't forget that Christmas is almost upon us and there is lots of Christmas shopping to be done. Maybe everyone is getting a copy for Christmas? ;)

I'm sure Ryan is thinking, "Oh, that guy must be one of the AT admins..." lol

Because obviously no one (other than us) has a problem with his work and/or the way he does business... :rotate:

Part 3 isn't even out yet? Goodness me - that's one very slow production.

Looks like RyKat has abandoned SH for his silly Ronni Chasen doc...

And "silly" is right. His conspiracy theories regarding Chasen seem even dumber than the ones involving the DeFeos. And watch -- the Chasen film will eventually end with Ryan saying, "Yeah, looks like that Harold Smith guy was the killer after all. Oh well. Thanks for watching my film..."

And when Ryan Katzenbach decides that it's time to introduce the "second gun" theory...it looks like Bill "butt hurt" Pfeiifer will be searching neighborhood swimming pools instead of the Amityville canal. ;)

But can he beat the 7-8 hours of Shat he makes people sit through, before arriving at the same conclusion as the police 40 years ago? :)

What I wonder is who keeps giving him the money to make this junk?

He could be working on his own budget which would probably explain why it has taken him nearly 11 years to produce the documentaries.

I know the majority has probably been shot in recent years but can you imagine if you bumped into the actors from parts one and two on the streets and realised they were ten years older than in the recent documentaries? I can imagine that would be a little awkward...

So he took on a new project "10 months ago", yet still asked for money on Amityville pre-orders he was too busy to deliver...
SHATTERED HOPES: THE TRUE STORY OF THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS wrote:LADIES & GENTLEMEN: We've been absent in any updates for a while, and I am finally feeling at liberty to speak about Shattered's Part III and the DeFeo Interview....

Roughly 10 months ago, as a filmmaker, I received a TERRIFIC opportunity to shoot a film for a large network. It was a film that I have always wanted to make and I never dreamed that I would be able to do so. As a producer, you always have projects that are on your wish list....and I am thrilled that I have been able to do the one I am currently working on while serving as its producer, writer and director. As a result of this, unfortunately, and unintentionally, Amityville was forced to take a backseat. I can assure you that Part III and the DeFeo interview are going to come out! We have not abandoned our commitment to the film or the work we started -- work that answers our forensic questions (and yours) on the case in extreme detail.

After this current project is delivered in the next 60 days, we will turn our focus back to the release of Shattered's final DVD and the DeFeo interview. Our fans and friends that we made along the way are NOT forgotten; we have not turned our back on Amityville....we have NOT lost interest in this most incredible project that we started filming, now, a decade ago.

I have received a lot of emails, and there have been many posts on here regarding the release of the final installment....they are NOT being ignored intentionally. We are very busy with our current project. At the present moment, we don't have an anticipated release date for the final work, except to say....stay tuned....IT IS coming! I hope that this will put your minds at ease and know that we are committed to releasing Shattered's III and 75A4053 in DVD formats.

I like how Ryan keeps saying "we," as in "WE have not lost interest," etc. When obviously there is no "we."

If Katco really consisted of people other than Ryan, then Ryan's absence wouldn't matter. He could go off and do this other project while the rest of the Katco team worked on releasing these DeFeo discs. Especially this interview disc, which Ryan claims was finished and manufactured back in June (7 months ago). No work left on it but to take orders and ship them out. Any monkey can do that.

But notice how everything stops when Ryan isn't available. He keeps blaming delays on either him being busy with another project, or him having a cold, or not being able how to figure out his new web authoring software, or whatever. It always seems to be excuses that wouldn't matter if there were others working alongside him.

But no. There is no one. He's just one sad little clown, running around trying to convince everyone that he is a big deal...

I agree Dan. It most certainly looks like Ryan is the only one working on the Amityville project because like you said it's not like the rest of the team cannot go on producing the work because he's not there.

Technically if Ryan has an editor (who is not himself) the editor can sometimes have the final word over how a particular scene is edited or how the timeline progresses.

Besides it has taken him a decade to complete a project which is actually quite bad.

It's the fact he's posted to his supporters that it will be completed and available to buy by such and such a date only to push it back. If it's not to its deadline then just be honest about it - push backs will only affect sales.

I wouldn't feel comfortable sending someone my money for a DVD to then be told it's not coming out for another year.
