A year ago this Memorial Day weekend, we began production on “the best part of my day”. Time flies doesn’t it? I think back to where I was living (a pretty tiny flat in that courtyard), what I was doing, and who I was doing it with, and it really gets to me how far I, and everyone else, have come. Really puts things into perspective.
So I personally feel like I have a lot to thank so many people for. This film has absolutely changed my life in a positive way. Here’s how.
1.) Fests: Heartland Film Festival (Primary Goal Achieved, EXTREMELY positive experience), Cleveland Int Film Fest (First Professional Award garnered, and a happy one at that, huge street cred, won back half of my investment), Big Island Film Festival (took me to a place off-continent finally, and we made some great film friends).
2.) Noteriety: Our website has breached the 10,000 hits mark, not too shabby. Peaks occur right after fests. There’s a ton of people who actually know who we are in Indy as well, including several peeps from the 48 hr film fest. Google our film in quotes. You’ll see us on a ton of movie review blogs. Very fun.
3.) Professionally: The company I work for, was able to sell a huge job to one of the biggest clients we could ever hope for, due directly to the success of our film.
And the ride (hopefully) isn’t over yet. We’re waiting to hear back from Amsterdam, Feel Good Film Fest, St. Louis Film Fest, and Harvest Moon. I still plan to submit to Cannes, Tribeca, and with Cinequest and Slamdance, I plan to re-submit there. We plan to sell the film to raise funds for the next film, and after we hear from all the fests, we’ll finally post online publicly and notify every major movie blog about it.
Thank you, the blog reader, for reading and supporting our filmmaking efforts. Without your support, your viewership, this wouldn’t be art. It’d just be a bunch of people making fast-moving pictures together. : )
