When we first started promoting OFFICIAL REJECTION, we actually DID start that discussion of commiserating about festival rejections and asked people to send us their rejection letters and share their anecdotes with us. And yes, we just joined twitter and have been trying to get into the habit of tweeting.
I’m pleased to announce that by the end of the year, OFFICIAL REJECTION will have played 22 festivals in the US and Canada. That being said, all of us having full-time jobs in addition to promoting “OR.” Paul Osborne, the film’s writer/director, is newly married and has two young children, so he gets very little sleep as it is. That being said, keeping up with all the community sites becomes increasingly more difficult to say the least.
But I agree wholeheartedly with what all of you have said about really tapping into that niche. Other than the obvious Twitters and Face Books of the world is there another filmmaker community site already in existence that might be more of a “one-stop shopping solution” where we might start posts like that?
Until after the DVD release in November, I just don’t foresee any of us having the time or energy to foster such a site ourselves.
We do have some exciting news to share: OFFICIAL REJECTION will be released on DVD on November 17th on Amazon.com.
Thanks so much for discussing our little film and I look forward to hearing any of your ideas.]]>
