And Oscilloscope just released Sundance opening night film "Hello I Must Be Going" on Friday, September 7 in NY and LA to $26,764 and a strong $13,382 per screen average.
Wingdu has been involved with the company from the start, she states: "Oscilloscope is hugely important to me, which is why I am trying to take a mindful approach to becoming more involved."
O-Scope is a small indie that doesn't expect its films to routinely gross more than $1 million. Since 2008, its 30 releases have yielded modest returns except for 2009's Oscar-nominated "The Messenger" ($1.1 million domestic) and Brit import "We Need to Talk About Kevin" ($1.7 million). O-Scope continues to make much of its profits in ancillary markets.
