So this is like one of those good news, bad news jokes:
I find out my film, "A Puppet Intervention," won second place for Documentaries at the Indy Gathering in Cleveland. Cool!
I find out that there was only one person in the audience. Damn.
That one person writes me, and says he loved the film. His name is Harry Oxnard, and he wants to give me $50,000 for distro rights. Just kidding. But he does do a podcast, "LA Podshow": (http://www.thelapodshow.com/
) and wants to interview me next Wednesday for his show. As part of his prep, he asked me what films influenced me, I said, "It's a mixture of "Anvil: The Story of Anvil" and "The Fog of War." In other words, part "Animal House," and part "The Thin Red Line," depending on what mood I'm in.
Tune in next week!
