Okay…so I will do a more formal announcement about this exceedingly cool thing tomorrow or Sunday. At the moment, I have to admit that the week has left me exhausted. It was difficult generating sufficient steam to power myself through meetings and the minutia of my day, even.
I need to rest.
But! First…I need to give you all a heads up that RUNAWAY will be screening in Los Angeles at 8 PM as part of the Great American Pitchfest. An event they’re billing as a "Screenwriter Showcase".
It’s a pretty swank event, the Pitchfest—well attended and well advertised. The Pitchfest folks and I hit it off really well in Austin last year, and they are big fans of the movie. They know I’ve got some things in the pipeline and other things I am trying to get off the ground, and they wanted to spotlight an up-and-comer who could use the exposure in Tinseltown.
The details are just getting finalized now, but here are the particulars that I know so far:
DATE: Saturday, June 21
PLACE: Burbank Marriott Hotel and Convention Center — Academy One Ballroom.
TIME: Doors open at 7:30, screening at 8:00. After the movie, there will be a short interview with me and a Q&A, and then a reception with appetizers and beverages to follow that.
Very cool. I am quite honored and don’t know how to adequately thank them. Equally cool, it’s a way to get RUNAWAY back in the environment in which it performs best…in front of an audience.
Tell all your friends! And hope to see you there.
