I almost titled this post “learning the back end,” but thought that didn’t sound quite…propah.
I haven’t blogged since April, but there have been many Troublemaker updates this summer! There will be announcements over the next month or so, so stay tuned.
What have I been up to? Well, after meeting and speaking with countless distributors, producers’ reps, and DIY fellow indie filmmakers, I’m a little bogged down by all the chatter. Time to make some spreadsheets? Are spreadsheets my security blanket? I need way to organize all the marketing/PR/distribution strategery, and believe me, it often feels like marshalling troops for a battle. Theatrical, DVD, VOD, all sorts of digital options, worldwide, domestic, all-inclusive, educational…Good lawd. Lots of learning as I go.
I’m itching to get Troublemaker revved up and out into the world, but it’s a long, long, loooonnnngggg process. Still waiting to hear back from many festivals; still taking meetings and chattering away; still determining the best process for the film in the long run. It’ll happen. Oh yes, it’ll happen. It will be mine. Is it weird that I still make Wayne’s World references? That movie is embedded in my brain.
