1. LUCKY MICHIGANI'm taking THE LAKE EFFECT back to Michigan!
Anyone can make a
map of Michigan on the fly.
Where is Bay City, you ask? It's in that little armpit of your thumb. Near Ann Arbor! ***I stand corrected - Near Saginaw!! - thanks Laura!****
I'm very excited to go to this festival because a good friend of mine Shaun O'Banion will be there with his movie GIRLFRIEND which I've been dying to see and also I get to hang out with ROSS PARTRIDGE all weekend! His movie THE OFF HOURS will be screening as well (which I also can't wait to see) It will be a Ross Partridge retrospective!
2. MARK YOUR CALENDERS!
Prepare to be harassed from now until Christmas (or Hanukah or Kwanzaa or Winter Solstice)! It's T-MINUS 8 Days until you can pre-order THE LAKE EFFECT on September 21st! And T-MINUS a bunch more days until you can have it in your hot little hands on our street date -- October 18th!
Next week, I'll post links to all the sites where you can buy the movie...
3. DONE AND DONER.
I found some closure yesterday as Jennifer and I plopped down in front of the tele for a QC (quality check) of the DVD. It was nice that the DVD came in this envelope from our distributor...
|TLE, front and center.|
We loaded up the movie and enjoyed a couple of trailers and checked out the main menu and the Additional Features -- Behind the Scenes, Raindance Q n A, Audio Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Bloopers - this DVD is chock full of extras, people! Save it! Queue it! Pre-order it! Buy it! Tell your friends! Thank you!
