In preparation for the AFM, the American Film Market, where we are meeting with distributors to negotiate the upcoming release of our movie, we are working furiously on two fronts...

1) FFF (a.k.a. Finishing the Fucking Film). What can I say. After 10 months of editing, we are still fine-tuning this beast. And it continues to get better. Those of you who saw the film at the festival in Vegas will be surprised by some of the changes, including three new scenes and a lot of new music by William Marshall, a.k.a. Octavius. In addition to putting the finishing touches on the music, we are doing the fine-tuning of the color, with the help of artist and colorist Lyn Gaza who is doing some amazing work. Thinking out of the box is the mode we're in and we've got a couple surprises in store here as well.

2) PROMOTION (a.k.a. The Hype Machine) At a seminar recently, Eli Roth (director of Cabin Fever) touted the importance of posting pictures and trivia on the IMDb as his single most important marketing tool. Since Eli seems to have done a thing or two right, we decided to follow his lead. We spent hours selecting just the right pics. Actually, if you count all the time we've spent selecting pictures and scrolling through the entire movie looking for frame grabs, the process has collectively taken more like... weeks of work. You can check out the IMDb listing for B+K and go to PHOTOS to see the pics. Many of them are already on the official website, but there are a couple of new ones as well. Here's the link: BLOOD + KISSES IMDB. In addition, Denise has posted a small gallery of some of her most gorgeous shots (photography courtesy of Robert) on her individual listing. But with thousands of images in her master collection we can promise more to come. Here's the link for that: DENISE MASINO IMDB. No photo gallery for the director, but here's my listing and some of my previous film credits in case you're curious G SIMPSON IMDB. Still working on the Trivia items but those should be posted soon...

More to come.
