Hollywoodland Here We Come

We've officially been accepted into our very first film festival!

It's the FAIF Film Festival in Hollywood, CA at Mann's Chinese Theater (the theater with all the celebrity handprints.) It's kinda crazy that the very first festival we get into is at the most famous theater in the freakin' country. Blasto will be screening on Thursday, October 13th at 1:00 pm. There will be an awards ceremony the following night. I would love to see someone come back with SOME kind of award. What would be hilarious would be if some random Blasto actor wins an award. Hopefully Kleiber will win something and he can stop complaining about how bad his acting is.

It's interesting to read the titles of the other movies playing the fest:
the Gnat and the Lion
bubbles & pick
hello earthlings

anna and the soldier

duck duck goose

us air marshalls

the patron
gone postal
to be an israeli woman
Insomnia ManiaC

and then of course there's Captain Blasto. I don't know about you, but I'm downright captivated by Bubbles & Pick and To Be An Israeli Woman. Bubbles & Pick sounds like some sort of PBS kids shoe about a Sea Lion and Penguin (or maybe a Seahorse and Swordfish) and their wacky underwater adventures. US Air Marshalls makes me imagine Tommy Lee Jones chasing Wesley Snipes with a rocket pack. Gotta wonder what all the other directors think of a title like Captain Blasto.

even more than the awards...which are certianly a huge plus...i hope you generate some buzz about the film, sell some DVD's and just get the word out. This movie has huge potential with the younger audiences and I hope it can pick up some of that needed buzz at the festival. Good Luck!
