Eric recently finished a full band version of This Big House for inclusion in a new short film, "Come to Know" made by Maine Films. This Big House was originally recorded as a demo version and included on the Two Wine Glasses/The Fear EP in July shortly after it was written. This new version includes full instrumentation including guitars, banjo, bass, and drums. Megan Jo Wilson, an immensely talented singer/songwriter from Portland, sang the backing vocal parts and Charles C. Gagne (Dominic and the Lucid, Spencer and the School Spirit Mafia) played the drums.
This version of the song is only available on a fourth coming CD release.

Here's a bit about the film:
In love, the only thing harder than a clean split is doubt. The Maine Film Collaborative's 'Come to Know' studies just this as an engaged couple struggles to maintain their holds on each others identity. Tension rises as the couple explores what they think they know about their relationship and encounter ominous flaws. Written by Bryant Mason and directed by Ian Clough, 'Come to Know' features songs by Portland favorites Eric Bettencourt and Gypsy Tailwind. The movie begins a festival tour in January, including a submission to Cannes.
