…is the worst. It’s the thing I hate most about promo — I tell myself that it’s an opportunity to contact people who’s work I admire and not just trolling for favours, but it still makes me queasy. But it’s a pretty essential part of “reading” as legit. A book or a movie without a blurb looks naked, and our little movie needs all the armour plating it can get out there. But so far as a result we’ve got some good quotes and a tweet from William Gibson.
Happily, it’s getting out there enough (75K views on YouTube) that there’s been a few media outlets who’ve already written about it. I love being able to just find quotable stuff without having to ask for it.
“Ingenious — a gripping science fictional movie that uses cleverness, not CGI, to paint a vivid and satirical future” –Cory Doctorow
“The Future of Employment Is Bleak in Ghosts with Shit Jobs” –The Atlantic
“Excellent… science fiction is not dead. It’s just moved from the cinema to the internet.” –Wired
Thanks for the feedback on our promo plan, we’re tweaking it. We’re also looking for a good screening location, somewhere central for about 10 distributor and industry types, if you have any leads.
Talking about promo, if you are in any upcoming shows or whatnot let me know and I will pass on the news when I can. For instance Jonah, who played Anton in the movie, is in a play this week — we’re going Saturday night!
