First off, thanks to all who hit me up via FB or MySpace or e-mail w/birthday wishes. Much as I hate to mark another trip around the sun, it’s still better than the alternative.
On to what’s happening around here. Eric is working on The Bunker final sound mix, and an alternate version which removes a bit of female naughty bits from the edit. This coming Saturday, Pam and I are driving up to Tampa for a photo shoot for the media & festival press kits. Yes, a photo shoot. Why anybody wants a pic of me I don’t know, but hey, I’ve done my own PR for years. Now, I have a pro working with me and the distributor, so as far as I’m concerned? Whatever she says, goes.
Last night, Pam began uploading a couple hundred megs of files for the kit, including revised DVD box cover art, the poster graphics, information about the bands we’ve locked up for the film, production notes, high-res pics from the shoot, stuff like that. Today, the distribution company’s designer is getting it all together and putting the finishing touches on, then dropping it off at the printer. Once the photo shoot is in the can, the kits will be assembled, and away we go.
Been a long road leading here, but the finish line’s just ahead. Next week, we’ll probably be announcing my first festival appearance, the official Bunker web site will be launched, and we’ll be selecting other festivals to approach with the completed film. The distributor and publicist are targeting some pretty big ones, so hopefully we’ll be able to hit a few.
And now, it’s back to the grind. Got a new freelance gig to bang out, still got work to do on my story for the fantasy anthology I’ve been asked to contribute to, and I have another writing project I’ve been itching to get on for quite a while. On both the fiction and film front, there are a whole lot of irons in the fire. For a workaholic like me? that’s Nothing new, but I’m digging it anyway.
