CITY ISLAND: PRODUCTION STILLS BEGIN!
Enjoy the first of many behind the scenes production stills I'll be posting in the weeks leading up to the release of "City Island" (3/19/10). Click to enlarge.
Re: the trailer. I think we'll be ready to put it up on our various sites (movie website, facebook and of course this blog) in two
weeks. In answer to a readers queary, no--the director doesn't have final control of the trailer. A company that specializes in creating trailers puts a few different versions together and the releasing company--in concert with the filmmakers--looks at them all and gives notes. Ultimately the end product belongs to those who are releasing the film--in this case, however, we are all on board with the trailer and delighted with how it turned out.
Now for the mantra. Remember that spreading the word about our movie is the key thing to getting it seen and in the hands of the audiences. So please forward this blog entry to as many of your friends (and enemies) as you can. Anyone interested in production stills and behind the scenes clips (not to mention the aforementioned trailer) will enjoy the journey this blog will be taking them on over the next three months. And go to the top right of this page to find me and the movie on Facebook, Twitter and all the usual self-promoting devices now overused by web-whores like myself.
Speaking of clips...
