With ISN’T IT ROMANTIC?’ now completely finished, the only task left is promotion, marketing and distribution. I say “only”, but it is a very big task. So far, it is going very well.
Ten days from today, April 10, our quirky, funny romantic comedy short makes its world premiere at the Carmarthen Bay Film Festival in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, Wales. It’s a very exciting time for all of us who worked on the film. We’ve shown it to the cast and crew as well as selected family and friends, but this will be the first time it will be viewed by an actual impartial audience.
The venue is the Stradey Park Hotel, a beautiful building, at least from the pictures I’ve seen. I would love to be able to attend with my co-writer, but logistics dictate that we can’t. However, my editor has family in Wales and will be attending with his wife and daughter. He’s going to represent us and handle the Q & A session. So we’re in very capable hands.
We’ve also begun submitting to other festivals. We’re shooting for exposure in major cities, both domestic and international where we will have a chance for industry professionals to see the movie. We’re very proud of what we accomplished. My co-writer and I have a new script that we are developing for our next project, which we plan to shoot late summer.
I’ll keep you up to date on the progress of both projects.
