Another kick ass review, from Reel Nerds Podcast

Monday, October 21st, 2013

The podcasters from Denver, Reel Nerds, attended Telluride Horror Show and had some great things to say about Delivery.  There are very mild spoilers I guess, in case you don’t want to know anything before seeing it.

“Both actors here really shine, Laurel Vail has to be good because so much is happening to her and so much of the story rests on her performance that if her performance  isn’t great the film would sink with her. Thankfully she rocks and Danny Barclay is also very good as Kyle.”  – 4 out of 5 stars!

Thanks so much, Ryan!

All Upcoming Festival Delivery Dates!

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Still so many more!

  • Brian and Danny are in New Orleans.  Maybe Adam too?  That festival should be really fun.  It’s not a specific horror festival, it just happens to be in October.  I think the New Orleans crowd will dig it. Plays tonight at 9:45 and Tuesday Oct. 15 at 9:45.
  • Tomorrow is the Telluride Horror Show at 10:30.  I think Adam is actually going to that one.  That place looks crazy beautiful.
  • Friday the 18th at 9:30 is Santa Fe Independent Film Festival.  That’s another non-horror festival that happens to be in October. Then it plays again at 8:30 on Saturday the 19th.
  • Late Saturday, Oct. 19th (so really Sunday morning) at 1:00am, Delivery will make its European Premiere at Sitges, one of the biggest horror festivals in the world.
  • Friday, Oct. 25th at 9:45, Adam and Brian will definitely be at the Twin Cities Film Festival, a big up and coming festival which also happens to be in their home town.  (Or like, really close.)
  • Also on Friday, Oct. 25th at 6:55, Delivery will have its Irish Premiere in Dublin, Ireland at the Irish Film Institute’s Horrorthon.
  • Then they get on a plane to England for Celluloid Screams, the Sheffield Horror Festival. The screening is on Sunday, Oct. 27th at 8:30. This will be the UK premiere.  I forget if they are both going, but Brian is going because then he heads to…
  • Mayhem Festival, the Nottingham Horror Festival.  Delivery will screen at 8:15 on Friday Nov. 1st with Brian in attendance.
  • Last but not least, Delivery returns to California on Saturday, Nov. 2 at 5:30, to screen at the very first Feartastic Festival in Palm Springs. The Last time I went to a film festival in Palm Springs, it was for Leading Ladies and the audience was awesome and super into it.  I can only hope for the same with their horror crowd.  It’s a brand new festival, but they have a lot of local media partners and I think the promotion has been really good. If I didn’t have to work I’d go early for the opening night stuff, but I am totally out of vacation days!  I’ll still be there Saturday.  I’m really excited.  It’s probably the last festival I’ll be going to this year for Delivery.  Though who knows?

 

Screamfest 2013

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Wednesday night was our Screamfest screening.  I was actually more anxious about it than I was for LA Film Fest since this audience watches a lot more horror I would imagine, and might be more analytic than most.

My husband had chorale rehearsal, so he dropped me off.  He didn’t plan on going this time anyway.  The first 2 screenings he saw stressed him out enough.  So I ended up getting there close to 7.  I had dinner.  Sort of watched some baseball.  A bit later everyone else showed up at the bar.  You can tell when because I stopped tweeting out of boredom.  I ended up forgetting to try and take pictures basically for the rest of the night.  :(

When we went to the check in table, I saw that they are sponsored by my friends’ horror prop shop Dapper Cadaver.  I flipped through it, and sure enough found a couple photos from when I did one of their catalog shoots! I was like, “Oh! I’m in here! ” and the people at the table did not care at all. the guy just sort of stared blankly at me. Ha ha.  Fair enough, dude. I was going to take a snap shot, but there were a bunch of people behind me, so I didn’t.  But I found it sort of delightful.

Watched the movie again.  Still super upsetting.  I think I don’t feel like it’s me, because I still get into it like a normal movie of strangers. The audience was much quieter than the LAFF crowd.  Less swearing every so often.  But it still got a great reaction.

It looked like most people stayed for the Q&A.  Some were similar to the ones from LAFF.  My friend John asked them if they did any Satanic research, but it was mostly just pregnancy/home birth stuff.

I was really happy to hear people weren’t sure what the truth of it was.  It’s intended to be one that you can argue about later.  Everyone can have their own theories.  Adam and Brian won’t tell anyone. I think it’s best to retain the ambiguity and let people project their own feelings into it.

 

Delivery will be playing in Ireland! (Total festivals this month: 11)

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

The Irish Film Institute is having its Horrorthon Oct. 24-28.  Delivery will be screening Friday, Oct. 25th at 18:55, (6:55 pm for Americans).  Sadly, I can’t be there, but I would like to go to Dublin someday.  I did briefly live in Dublin, CA.  Not the same though.  Very not the same.

Happy Halloween early – Cheerbleeders on Amazon!

Turns out Cheerbleeders is available to buy on Amazon for just $2.  It’s a quick 15 minutes, funny, and violent.  It was when I had long black and blue hair!

Moon Times!

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Last weekend I finally shot my stuff for Moonbound24.  I actually thought they decided not to use me, or that they used my audition footage since I signed a release at the time.  But they just had like 90 people to shoot, so it took some time.  It’s fine by me, I know that independent stuff takes some time to do right.

So I went to the production office and I did a re-worked monologue based on the character I made up for the audition.  Then we did a series of improvised questions and answers.  It went really quickly and was super fun.  He said they are almost done with all the shoots so they should be launching soon (pun sort of intended.)
