That's gonna be my new band name.
This week I missed out on a trip to Michigan to go to the very cool Hell's Half Mile Film Festival. (True story: Two old men were overheard in the bathroom saying how affected they were by the movie! - I didn't know that men talked to each other in the bathroom but I did know that old men love us. Buy a copy for your Grandpa!!!) I also had to turn down a trip to the Jacksonville Film Festival, a great little festival run by fellow filmmaker Warren Skeels - where The Lake Effect will be screening later this month. I suppose these are good problems to have - I had to turn them down because I am working! Working working working working working. On a web series, a commercial, a music video, a pilot, a spec script, and (currently) this blog. Not to mention trying (not desperately, just trying) to get everyone and their mother excited about buying a copy of TLE!
|Everyone wants this sweet-looking DVD!|
I had this idea -- I could go around to people who should really buy the movie out of obligation (Hi Mom!) and make them do it on camera...(See! So Easy - you can do it on your phone! You can buy it from your laptop, Ipad! Use your telephone!) And then the obligated purchasers could talk about how excited they are. I'll edit the whole thing with star wipes and then post it (ON THIS BLOG - so self reflexive, planning my next blog while I blog) and it would inspire everyone to buy my movie!! It could be sweet.
I'm a little punchy. Been writing since 5. Forgive. Then pre-buy the movie. I know - I'm a broken record. Don't worry. It'll die down on October 18th (and then maybe start up again around the Holidays).
