Press Day Pictures

Pictures from the press day event for The Rocker can be viewed at my flickr account.

From the looks of it, and the reports that Mike gave, it was a great time.

I didn't end up meeting with that studio interested in LOD last week, although I did trade emails with one of the guys I'll be talking to regarding the film. I can't say much at the moment, but there's every indication that I could get some big news next week.

Check from FOX

Today I received my first (but hopefully not my last) check from a major movie studio. It was payment for the work that we did on Monday for having Gertrude at the press day out west for "The Rocker".

Even though it wasn't for writing or directing, it was a neat moment to see a check from "Twentieth Century FOX Film Corporation" with my name on it. The check for the use of the coach during production last summer actually came from the production company, "Rocan" not FOX.

I'm going to frame a copy of it and hang it over the desk that I do most of my writing at.

Rocker Press Day

The press day that Gertrude attended for "The Rocker" went really well and the report from my partner on this venture, Mike Rotta, was that the cast was happy to be reunited with her. It sounded like they weren't expecting her to be there. It sounded like a fun time and I wish I could have been there.

Most of the major entertainment news reporting networks and shows had booths set up and conducted interviews. MTV apparently did their interviews with Rainn Wilson on Gertrude in the front lounge.

Mike took a ton of pictures and one of the photographers there for the event promised he'd send Mike a bunch of shots. I'll post them on the blog as soon as I get them.

My meeting with the production company has been moved to Friday @ 3:00.
