Home stretch

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.
