What kind of a supposedly blogathoning blogger takes the weekend off? A psuedo one. So sue me. What can you do me? I spent Saturday traveling to LA and Sunday with the Easter Bunny. I thought of blaming my non-existent Catholicism but that particular religion takes it on the kneecaps so often these days that why add to the bad publicity?

Instead I'm offering up an apology by posting the FIRST EVER CLIP FROM A CUT SCENE FROM CITY ISLAND. This is a one-minute teaser for what I consider to be the best scene in the movie--Vince Rizzo going on his first acting audition. Enjoy, I hope, and look for a few more clips in the coming days.

Please send this blog entry to friends and encourage them to pass it on as well. As previously mentioned (or nagged about), our goal is to sell out the screenings and show the distributors that we've made an enormous crowd-pleaser of a movie--one that deserves a wide general release. You can help me by getting people into the screenings--and then, hopefully, by sending in your highly positive comments on the film.Tickets go on sale tomorrow so click here and follow the link to grab them while they're hot.

Tomorrow I'll continue with the Sinister Saga of Staging "City Island". Meanwhile...

Awesome! I was going to give you a hard time about not blogging this weekend (after all, I ducked out of Easter dinner at the parents to check real quick), but seeing a new click makes up for it ;)

Now that is what you call a teaser..
Have to see the whole scene....The
funny thing is when ever you see
Street Car named Desire thats not
what we see . We see Marlon Brando
kind of ruins that play for me.,,

A film of all the dailys to me would
be great to see if it was in the
order of the story. I shot a small
little nothing a few years back it
killed me to cut it so instead I just
copied all the footage and hold it close to my heart as bad as it was..
It is on 16mm dumb but I love it.

Thanks for giving me the pass on the weekend. Won't happen again. I think.

Why is the Tribeca ticket thing troublesome?

Thanks for letting us know the tickets would soon be on sale. I'm still not sure if I'll be able to swing the trip but I'll probably still buy tickets when the individuals go on sale for those who aren't AM Ex holders just in case it does work out.

Its troublesome because I am stupid
but I will figure it out and get my tickets......

I went to the website and looks to me like two of the showings are already sold out. Is that what "Rush tickets" mean?
