Hired a publicist (!???) to help promote the 8/31 Date Number One screening in NYC

I am still getting used to the idea of giving some of the Date Number One distro work load to someone else, but I think it will be worth it in the long run. The whole situation is not as indiewood as it sounds, I already knew the publicist & he gave me an excellent deal on the work - to promote the Thu 8/31, 9 PM screening of Date Number One at Pioneer Theater, NYC. Once I get more comfortable w/ the idea of employing a publicist (for the 9 screenings of DNO so far, only I did the publicity work, now this 10th screening will have 2 peeps doing publicity - self & the publicist, pretty strange & new to me, but NYC is huuuge & the Pioneer screening is important, so I am very grateful for the help) & some publicity work has been done, I will introduce the publicist to the readers of this blog & will talk about some of the useful work that a publicist may be able to do for your film. Even an ultra-low budget publicist may be very useful in getting the word out about your screenings, as long as he or she is good at what they do.

Very curious to see how the nuts and bolts of it work S.

I am taking notes, will share soon.

The publicist is only for the 8/31 screening, I am handling the rest of publicity for the flick (other screenings, DVD, etc.) & I am also doing some 8/31 publicity.
Having some pro help may make things faster & we may be able to get more done.

On the other hand, hiring a cinematographer to shoot your film may be more frustrating than shooting it yourself. So, we'll see.

We'll try things out & see what works best when.

Thanks again to you & Bill (name?) for hooking me up w/ the graphics today. I am using them now.

Talk to you soon JB.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
