Lorie and I have been feverishly working to get Lost In Sunshine made since 2008. We have a tight story, which we got by working on for over two years, have greatly experimented with various levels of transmedia and social media, have an in-detail 30 page business plan (with various budgets) and we have a crew/verbally attached (well-known) cast ready to rock and roll. We've attended events, networked, tried to create excitement, and even got our first big investor in 2009 (thank you, R!)! We've even had several respected HW producers/distributers read it and compliment our story, and advise us on our project. We've paid big bucks for a marketing/distribution specialist we can't use fully, yet, a car to be painted, locations to be scouted, art to be made, websites to be built, and a monthly newsletter to be mailed from a mailing list we created. We've been very proactive and frustrated, and guess what? LIS still isn't made!! But that's ok... remember, my greatest gift is hanging on to hope when it feels hopeless. Besides, for better or worse like a marriage, there's nothing else my brain will fully let me do in life! :)
In addition, I have a finished mixed genre horror film, Volando Muerte, that's a bit in limbo, because of the what-I-know-to-be dilemma(s) of DIY, FESTIVALS, HW, ETC.
Something like this (moviecloud.com) seems too good to be true. But guess what, I like too good to be true, especially when it has a viable plan I can read, listen to, and engage in. I'm tired of talk-talk-talk from those who have one agenda - their own. I'm ready to be a team again, and I hope this is A WAY we can finally reach out globally and do it.
How will we know if we don't try, right?
