The retail DVDs of Date Number One are not ready yet, but I am working on them. Should have them ready for sale by the end of this month.
And just because the DVD is being sold does not mean that screenings are over. Not in the post-Funny Ha Ha/Mutual Appreciation age where an indie film can do cable or DVD & then still keep playing theaters. More screenings than ever will be happening in '06 & '07 for DNO, while I am selling the DVDs.
Crooked Beat, a local DC record & CD & DVD store ordered 3 DVDs of Date Number One today. When those sell, they'll ask for more.
My first major sales goal for DNO DVDs is 10,000 units. A goal that is to be accomplished when possible. Hopefully w/in 2 years.
So 3 DVDs placed with a retailer, and just only 9997 to go :) :) :)
Retail stores (brick & mortar or web) interested in selling the Date Number One DVD can e-mail me at wilddiner AT aol.com.
Back to my music, it's 1992 or 1994 on my CD player, Fugazi's In On The Kill Taker is on, bought a brand new copy today at Crooked Beat, DIY music for a DIY filmmaker. There's a song about John Cassavetes in that album.
Oh, while I was at Crooked Beat I ran into & chatted with Basla from the Dischord band Beauty Pill, it was a most excellent moment.
