The Charleston Film Festival in April

Posted on May 24th, 2008 | Category: Blog

The Charleston Film Festival:

We really had a great time, and the highlight — for me — was the Huguenot church and cemetery.

That highly emotional experience, alone, was worth the trip. My husband Dan and I met some really nice people, including old friends Jeanette and Rick in Savannah! We actually have a documentary in mind for summer. TBA.

Dan and I attended two days of the Charleston IFF viewings, wearing VIP passes and we were both delighted with the quality of films! The audience voted and it was tough to choose, as there were truly many talented film makers there. Tracy Roberts, one of the Film Festival Directors, was especially kind.

It was a memorable trip, but there is no place like home. :)

  • Doug!That is a really good oiqstuen and somewhat debated I’d say it’s a slight risk you take when going to producers first instead of agents and managers. If you want to be extra-extra safe, query managers first, then agents, then producers If you ARE lucky enough to get an agent or manager excited about your script, and you’ve already shown it to a few producers, you DEFINITELY want to tell them which producers you’ve shown it to. You can wait until after they’ve agreed to be your representation, or do it before it’s up to you. They may or may not have a relationship with that producer (odds are pretty low), but it’s good idea to keep your representation in the loop.But in the end, while your oiqstuen COULD be a concern, as someone just starting out, it’s been my experience that it’s tough to get ANYONE’S attention. Right now, it’s more important just to accumulate fans of your work..producers, agents, managers And ESPECIALLY their assistants Build a fan base. Then continually churn out great scripts and watch that base grow.-Eric
