March 16th, 2003

March 16, 2003

Okay. Was the Joe Bob thing back in October? For real?

Damn. The quick summary then.

We’ve signed both foreign and domestic deals for Hunting Humans. The foreign with IFM was done first. They recently sent me magazines from AFM and MIFED with ads for Hunting Humans including the poster.
AFM and MIFED are two of the biggest marketplaces for selling movie rights. IFM attends both.

One of the magazines has a small article where they credit Lisa Michele with being in Enemy of the State.
See, when I was making the press kit I couldn’t get Lisa’s bio. I called her, I emailed her. Nothing. So I made it up. I said she’d had parts in Enemy of the State, The Replacements, and a few other movies shot locally.

Apparently they liked that and used it in the article.

Pretty funny.

Anyway, part of the whole distribution process is “delivery”. That’s where you have to get them the master and it needs to pass “quality control”. We had TONS of problems. Cost a bit of money to fix it. That will, of course, be coming out of our end.

It took a lot of time, but now we’re just waiting to hear when and where the movie will come out. The contract has a tentative date of May 15th, so we’ll see. The day I walk into Blockbuster Video and see it on their shelf will be the last big high for Hunting Humans.
Meantime, we’re prepping for Fear Of Clowns.
