Latest News

Spent the weekend at a local convention and had some interesting discussions with a couple of people regarding post-production, some plotting ideas on one of the feature films I'm working on (entitled Storage Space.)

Also just got an email back from one of the film festivals. They decided against screening one of my films. Ah well. Have to expect some of that on the first movies I've put into the festival circuilt.

Still have some ideas and I'm getting stoked to get writing again!

More Festival News

Of the 17 festivals to which I've submitted The Wedding Enforcer, I've been told that 16 have received it and are considering it. The last one, Cannes, hasn't yet responded.

For Wife of the Bad Guy, I've received 12 confirmations out of the 16 submissions. Haven't heard on the rest.

I should hear whether they'll accept either of them starting next week and continuing for the next several months.

Cross your fingers!

Peppering the Festivals from Coast to Coast

Three more festival submissions for each movie since the last posting:
- Charlotte, NC
- Ft. Worth, TX (the "Fearless Film Festival")
- Another in H'wood ("Dances with Films")

So the states that we have covered include:
- California
- Nevada
- Washington
- Texas
- North Carolina
- Illinois
- Utah
- New York
- Massachusetts
- Pennsylvania
- Colorado
- Florida
- Arkansas

and the foreign festivals cover Canada and France

So I think I'll take a pause in submissions for a time to let my bank account recover.

(Lessee, thirty two festival submissions, average submission fee: $35, cost of postage for each: $2.50, DVD/Case/envelope/label costs each: $3. Total cost: about $1300.)

I'm thinking of getting a new camcorder and 'puter for editing. Any suggestions?

More Festival Submissions

The Wedding Enforcer is going out to the Little Rock Film Festival and the Chicago Short Film Fest, while Wife of the Bad Guy is headed to the Fear No Film Festival in Utah and the Delta International Film & Video Festival in Massachusetts. We'll see how they do.

In the meantime, here's a production still from Wedding Enforcer: Our bride, Cathy (Allison Volk) and the Groom's Ex, Sheila (Idalia Enriquez). The groom clearly shows good taste!

"Wife of the Bad Guy" and "Wedding Enforcer" on IMDB

Thanks to being under consideration by a couple of festivals, now both Wife of the Bad Guy and The Wedding Enforcer have their own title pages on IMDB! Right now the Wife site is just a title page with no content. (The Without a Box folks haven't transferred all of the credits info yet.) The Wedding Enforcer page is live and has about half the credits. (I had to upload the rest of the credits this evening.)

So take a look here for Wife of the Bad Guy
and here for The Wedding Enforcer!

Wife of the Bad Guy

I just got word that Wife of the Bad Guy is under consideration by the Indie Spirit and Newport Beach festivals. As a result, it qualifies for its own IMDB title page! I'll be populating that once the IMDB people tell me its live.

And while we're on the subject, here's a photo of Lisa Pettett as our title character
