Back In the Day with IMDb

Before there was an Internet, I had a 10 year career in "Hollywood on the Hudson" working on major feature films as a sound engineer, sound editor, and once, producer.

In those days I spelled "Randal" with one "l" - another story I shall share sometime.

Internet Week NY 2009 - Day 7 - IndieGoGo

INDIEGOGOSlava, the founder of IndieGoGo (and a genuinely nice guy), presented a discussion about film funding, promotion, and distribution. Panelists included Noah Harlan (401st Blow), Christopher Roberts (The Believer, Up With Me), Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified) and Scott Kirsner (Cinematech, Variety) as moderator. Other IWNY media panels focussed on short-form comedy web tv, this one discussed 'traditional" film.

I know three indie films in production, I am definitely telling them about IndieGoGo!

Katra NYC



There was an intimate party afterwards at Katra - with $5 Buds/Bud Lite/Bud Ale/Newcastle - Hallelujah! Also, free food! Fries with spicy mayo, hummous on pita pieces, and chicken bites (not for vegetarian me!)
So, that's it for me - Internet Week NY actually runs 8 days, like the Beatles, but I am not going to Day 8, and I was not invited to the Webby Gala at Cipriani (sob)
