The time is now. Our neo-noir film Guys Reading Poems has been a long time in the making, but we are that much closer to the end. So what happens now?
We are working our strategy plan for the festival circuit and working hard to make some deals happen in the meantime so that we can make our debut with a splash. We remain optimistic considering we have a special film that hasn’t seen anything like it before and we are excited to share our project with the world!
What is tough is that the future is fraught with the unknown. As filmmakers we can try to hedge our bets the best we can for certain festivals, but in the end we can only hope for the best. For those who have been down this road before, you understand the challenges that lie ahead. For those who are not familiar with the process, this is the time where we work to make our debut. Whether that includes a distribution deal prior to our world premiere is still up for grabs. We are also looking at the educational system and art worlds to see where we might fit in terms of an audience and generating awareness for the film. We shall see as time will tell. Stay tuned and don’t change that channel!
