Okay, so here we go. My first blog! I'm sure a lot of you (anybody out there?) would like some background on how Larry and I started this whole shebang and are curious what our intentions are with Karmic Jesters. And those are very good things to be curious about, and possibly I'll get around to telling you all about it. But not today. Just too much going on in the NOW that I don't want to spend the necessary time looking backwards.
Speaking of looking backwards - Tomorrow (Sept. 20, 2018) Larry and I are flying to Austin, Texas to attend Fantastic Fest (a film festival celebrating Horror and Fantasy films). On Sunday, my movie "Blood Lake" will be getting it's "World Premier" screening - 30 YEARS after it was originally released on video. Seems my little "No-Budget" movie has developed a cult following and is now getting a DVD release. I will attend the screening, do a Q&A with Writer/Produce/Star Doug Barry (who I haven't seen or spoken to in almost 30 years) and then the two of us will record a running commentary for the DVD. All of this is a huge surprise for me. I'm very grateful that the movie is getting some attention, but I still don't truly understand why. You see, I always thought it was a piece of crap. It didn't live up to the quality I had hoped it could. But somehow, some way I guess it contained a little magic that has touched some people (I hope not inappropriately) and has become beloved by a very small segment of movie buffs. I hope to learn what the appeal is and why they love the movie so much. No matter what, I'm so glad I made the movie. I learned so much from the doing, and might not be where I am today if I hadn't directed Blood Lake.
If I have time I'll give updates, but most likely that will be on our Facebook site.
Well, that was fun. I might have to write another one of these soon. Until then... Peace Everyone!
