#22 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: Aggregators & The Amazon Release Process (Week 22 of 116)

I talk a lot about aggregators, what they are and what they do and how I avoided the biggest aggregator meltdown the industry has ever seen. Amazon’s questionable release process is also talked about with some news there. What I didn’t mention is this, the president of my Distribution Company was at the forefront of the aggregator meltdown and he did a very candid interview with Alex Ferrari on Indie Film Hustle. If you’d like to know more you can hear that episode here. 
Thanks for listening!

#18 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: A Chat with a Critic, Spoilers Galore (Week 18 of 116)

***Warning, I’ve been advised to let you all know that there is some stuff given away in this episode, stuff that you may not want to know before seeing it. There are a number of “discoveries” that I wrote into the script and honestly it’s hard to talk about this movie withot exposing at least some of them, but a big one that happens in the first act of the movie is included in this interview.
This week I get my wish and have a nice conversation with a critic who was not too nice about the movie… to be fair he was fair in his review, unlike some others. Stuart D. Monroe is many things, an author and a critic are just a few. His work can be found on horrordna.com and getonmydamnlevel.com and on his social media pages which are:
By no means is this an invitation to harass Stuart, I liked him quite a bit and am very glad he agreed to do this with me. Sorry the audio is subpar, I screwed things up, much like the the writing of my movie, right Stu! I kid. Happy listening.

#17 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: Things Not to do at Your Premiere (Week 17 of 116)

I had my friend and co-host Greg Srisivasdi sit in with me this week and hold my hand as I recounted some of the unfortunate things that were said at the cast and crew screening on Saturday. I also talked some more about the reviews, currently at 17% on Rotten Tomatoes, and what kind of an impact that may or may not have on my future filmmaking plans.

#14 I’ve Got a Movie to Make: I’m Going to be Honest (Week 14 of 116)

Not much value in this update, just me being me. Been talking into the microphone a lot about Groupers the last couple of weeks, way more than normal, trying to get the word out and generate a buzz. However, here I allow myself to be myself and talk a little bit about the burnout factor I’m experiencing. If I can be honest about how I feel anywhere it’s got to be here. Thanks for allowing me to do this. It was just the break I needed. Did another interview right after I recorded this one and was right back to my enthusiastic, sales guy persona. Next week should be better.

Tickets to Groupers on October 1st in Select Cities Here. Sept. 24th Deadline to meet the minimums.
