Okay, no, the photo shoot wasn’t that bad. In fact, largely thanks to knowing what to expect, it wasn’t bad at all. Good tuneage on the sound system at CSE, an expert photog on the lens, and fast recycling equipment enabled us to knock out everything we needed in less than four hours.
While we (of course) didn’t need the extra shirts we bought or all the stuff we lugged up to Tampa, we still got a helluva lot accomplished without me walking face first into a hot umbrella, so that was a good thing. We got all the shots we wanted for the media kits and film festival packages, which was the goal, and I did a little biz with Russ after the shoot over dinner, before we headed back home.
Now, the ball’s in Tracie’s court (our publicist). The folders should be back from the printer this week, several festival packages will be going out, and an announcement is forthcoming about a fest I’ll be attending. Things’re movin’ right along, which is what I’ve been hoping for ever since scheduling the final reshoot necessary to wrap The Bunker. Thursday, I have a call set up with Metropolis Records, about another one of their bands whose music I’d like to use in the film. When Eric returns from Cinequest (an Oscar-qualifying fest where his latest film, The Dive, has two screenings), we’ll have the final sound mix in place and then the whole shebang goes over to Adam for the credits and film look. My distrib’s very happy about how fast progress has gone. While we haven’t set a drop date for The Bunker, by the end of March we’ll be able to jump on any opportunity that presents itself. I’d love a Fall release, you know, right around Halloween? but we’ll see what offers us the best options.
And now? What else. Back to work, of course.
