My movie's showing in NYC...

Blatant self promotion time! This technically doesn't belong in the Now Showing category until next Wednesday, but oh well...

My short film, 'Still,' is playing next week in Manhattan as part of the NewFilmmakers showcase, so anyone in NY who feels like dropping by...well, feel free to drop by. It's playing with some other indie films, and it all costs...I think...only five bucks.

The details: April 9, 7:00pm at the Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue, New York, NY, 10003

I'm impressed. Will you get any feedback/reviews etc.?

Wish I could go  :cry:  Have you got a clip?

Feedback, hopefully, but the people who run it (who also run the Angelika) said the Village Voice sometimes will review the films. I wish I could be there, too! Darn this starving artist syndrome.

I've got a trailer for 'Still' on my website (link below). It's been criticized for being a little melodramatic, but I think it succesfully manages to not give away anything about the movie....

Looks interesting. Nice use of simple music to underline not is all as it seems.

Good luck with the screenings.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

I remember this! Different trailer, though, right? Looks nice.

Didn't the other trailer have more violence?

I saw "Still" when it played in Dallas a few months ago.  I would recommend that you see it if you can, because it is a good film.

LOL. I had this notion that everytime the movie played anywhere, I'd have someone different introduce it and pretend to be me. So by all means, if you go, feel free to impersonate me. In fact, you should get a bunch of people together and have a Spartacus style moment if there's a Q&A.

In all seriousness, though, the reason I can't go is because I'm a little low on funding at the moment, and I can't really afford to take the time off work. If I could, I'd be there in a heartbeat. I love NY.

Congrats! It's always nice to dream something near our dreams, but when it feels like we are living any part of it, then that is something sweet indeed.

You should have told us earlier; we could have had a bake sale to get the money to send you.

But seriously, good luck. Any plans to bring it to Los Angeles?

Hopefully, yes -- the same program has a showcase in LA, and they told me 'Still' would probably play there too. So whenever that happens, I'll definitely be there. I should be financially recuperated by then.

Hey Ghostboy,

It looks like a expensive project.. Could you give us a estimate of how much you spent on your film?

On the filmstock itself? About 1500 (and that was with a student discount).

On the whole film...well, less than it looks but not as little as I'd like.
