Film Reading

Lead actor Henry Dittman prepares for a take

I like to read about film so I was jazzed to find this stack on Delicious:

http://delicious.com/stacks/view/BZQ8dq

links to online film rags!

Currently in the process of getting Boppin’ back online.  Our Prescreen.com run has ended and whoah Nelly what a learnin’ experience it’s b====n!  More details pending once we find our new home(s).

Meanwhile it’s readin’, writin’ and filmin’ (heavy on the readin’ these days, but I can’t help it, I’m hooked!)

Halfway Point

 

 

Well the big experiment with Prescreen.com is nearly half completed.  As of tomorrow JUNKIE NURSE will be streaming on Prescreen for only another 30 days.  How have we done so far?  We broke the record for most sales that weekend we premiered!  At this point we have fallen back to 3rd place which is great considering that there are 38 films on the site so far!

A few days after we broke the record another film beat us a by a few and then a week or two later we were all wiped out by another film which jumped up to 6oo buys!  Oh well, it was great while it lasted 🙂

Here’s the guest blog I did for producer Ted Hope’s great site HOPE FOR FILM on Indiewire:

Jeff Orgill on “Anatomy of a Prescreen Launch”

It was quite an honor blogging for Ted’s site!

I’m currently cooking up a couple more blogs for other sites as well.  I guess this is a great jumpstart to get me back into writing my next projects.  I’ve been reading a lot of other scripts from InkTip.com and also wokring on two scripts with co-writers, Charlie Santore (“Sleep Tight”) and Sarah Tatting-Kinzy (“The Girl With The Wandering Eye”).  More to come on these projects in future posts.

Yours truly,

Jeff

The Magic and Madness of Picking a Start Date — and Sticking to It

The day of our JUNKIE NURSE Prescreen launch Ryan Koo of No Film School, one of my favorite blogs about filmmaking (I mean moviemaking, film’s dead right?), posted a guest blog I wrote for his site:

The Magic and Madness of Picking a Start Date — and Sticking to It

It’s quite an honor to be a part of Koo’s useful and interesting (if you are a film nerd like me) web site.

If you have any “start date” war stories please post a comment and share the wisdom.

Boppin’ at last!

 

Welcome to the brand new website for Boppin’ at The Glue Factory! It’s been quite a long journey getting here and I have lots of stories to tell about how we did it that will be very helpful to others choosing this path. But right now I just want to say thanks for joining us and being a part of the exciting artistic endeavor they call indie filmmaking.

If you haven’t already done so please sign up for our email list (it’s in the site footer, bottom of the web page) so you will get updates about Boppin’, this blog, and other fun stuff.

And most importantly please sign up for Prescreen so you will get their email about the Boppin’ Worldwide Online Premiere this Friday! That’s only two days away! I’m extremely excited about this as it’s the first time Boppin’ will be publicly available to buy and watch. It’s a big deal for me and something I’ve been looking forward to for a long long time! I will fill you in on the intricacies of why it’s taken so long in future blog posts. So please stay tuned.

Thanks!

Yours truly,

Jeff

p.s. I stopped smoking the day I found out I was going to be a dad.  But I still dig this photo. Thanks Jacqui and Josie for helping me quit!  [photo by Jacqueline Harris]
