Screening #2: Business

A much more demure audience at the DGA Theater today. Not nearly as wild & festive as the crowd the other night. Today’s crowd chuckled in all the right places, but still it was pretty tame by comparison.

I was annoyed at the idea of a daytime screening, but it turns out this was industry hours. After the movie we were approached by several known distributors. Nice. (it's a good thing we have a sales agent)

Met some great people. The organizer of the NY Horror Meetup, George took some nice pictures during the q&a.

First Screening: NY audience + scares = wild!

NY rocks. It’s an altogether different thing to see the movie with an audience.

We had our first official screening of Dark Mirror last night as part of the NYILFF at the Imaginasian Theater. It was a great response, especially considering that this was still technically a work-in-progress.

Really loud audience. You could hear them screaming and laughing from the front lobby… "Don't go in there, lady!" etc.

At the end of the night, a huge portion of the audience stayed behind, loudly debating the ending and group-writing the sequel. We all had to be kicked out of the theater at closing time.

This is how it’s meant to be seen. Like a party. Very exciting.

A star is born

Just found out one of our actors (Daeg Faerch) plays young Michael Myers in Rob Zombie’s Halloween!

Cool. Now we can say we “discovered” him first.

Update: Daeg was also in Hankock and even made the Trailer!
