More About Me
I've been testing my work since June with its target market (12-18yo girls). They love it. The reviewer who gave 727 two stars says she couldn't understand what was going on. I've never gotten that response from the teens it was made for.
Reminds me of the studio response to American Graffiti.
The "adults" running things didn't want to release the picture. Wall-to-wall music no truly "compelling narrative". Lucas and Coppola were forced to throw together a screening for their target market (teens). The response was so overwhelmingly positive that the executives made them organize another because they thought the filmmakers must have rigged the first with actors and friends.
We all know what followed Graffiti, but wouldn't have if the adults had their way.
Switched to an all music and lovely image presentation after noticing that what worked during my film school days a dozen years ago was not working for the teens who attend movies nearly every weekend.
My production studio "The Richmond Re-Directory" has been located across the street from a college prep high school for four years now. Screenings are at noon and 3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Wish you all could see their natural responses to what has been virtually ignored here on the lot.
I stopped uploading work for the 10,000 13-17yo female followers I'd been gathering on MySpace and Model Mayhem since 2003 when I joined here to focus my intent more fully on the feature length test movies. The possibility of a six or seven figure budget by year's end will do that to an unsigned artist I suppose.
