Diamond fall festival run

J.R. has announced several opportunities to see Diamond on Vinyl this fall.

First up the film will play at the Tacoma Film Festival this Friday, 10/4. After that, on 10/16, it's on to NYC for the NewFilmmakers New York screening series at the Anthology Film Archives. That same night the film will screen at the Atlanta Underground Film Festival. And on 10/20 Diamond will play the Twin CIties Film Festival.

 On the distribution side, Gravitas Ventures will be releasing Diamond on North American VOD. The film will platform out starting with OnDemand on cable providers as well as iTunes, and over the course of 2014 will eventually hit all of the major players like Netflix, Amazon, etc.

Many happy returns to J.R. + all of the cast and crew! 


LA river scout

some stills from my LA river location scouting for Frogtown, spring 2007.

limited edition Frogtown DVD

After the screening in NY this past March, the theatrical portion of Frogtown’s life is complete. Many people have asked me how they can get a copy of the film and to that end I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for DVD replication.

Please check out the link. If you didn’t have a chance to see the film at one of the screenings or you’d simply like a copy so you can see it again, please consider donating to the campaign - you’ll get a DVD in return. And if you know anyone else who may like a copy or who would like to support the project - please help get the word out.

NY screening March 14th

Frogtown has been selected to screen in the NewFilmaker’s NY screening series. The screening will be held Wednesday March 14th at 815PM in The Courthouse Theatre at 32 2nd Ave. NYC. I’ll be there as will Alanna Blair. If you’ll be in town please join us! I’m sure we’ll head out for drinks somewhere that evening to celebrate as well.


LA premiere

I am happy to announce that we’ve arranged a Los Angeles screening of Frogtown at 8P on Saturday Sept. 17th at The Downtown Independent Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. After the screening they’ll be an after party on the theatre’s rooftop bar. I am excited to honor all the hard work on the film over the years. Please do join us on the 17th! The event is open to the public. All are welcome! Many thanks.
