Simone does the PR at 1001 Production House
So today I did something we anticipated for a very long time. I pressed the send button! After contacting dozens of distributors in the beginning of August we were left with a couple of very interested ones. So I sent the latest version of Dance Iranian Style to several of these distributors today and it felt wonderful to finally have something to offer them. They started downloading immediately and we are very curious what they think of it. Hopefully we’ll hear something within the week and can talk about further collaborations.
We hit another milestone today because I started with filling out the entry form for the Sundance Film Festival in January. The video file has to be at their desk in Los Angeles at the 20th of September so we have to hurry! And the entry form is nothing to think litely about. They want to know EVERYTHING. Every little detail, every date of birth, camera setting, genre… It made my head spin. But it is slowly coming together, and we’re starting to take the future to the present. No talking about things we should do when the film is ready, but now! And we are finally showing our project to the world.
This 9th of September is a busy day, there is also a meeting with graphic designer, Joost Waardenburg, this afternoon. We will be talking about posters and more graphic design stuff, to make everything appealing and coherent. We, and with us a lot of people, were very pleased with the results of the press kit so we are looking forward to the ideas of Joost on the poster, dvd cover, etc.
So this time is pretty fun, because we are living the dream of finishing the film. Next week: probably all the distributors love us and we can choose which one fits us the best!
