- I've done it! 4
years in a row with a documentary
- Still don't know
what that dude was saying...
- ...but yes - it's
done! That was a pretty packed 5 days. I'll get more
into what the release means in two weeks but
I thought I'd explain what the hell I did that
was so difficult when this movie was essentially
finished in 2010...
copyright, copyright. The biggest probelm with doing
The Journey in an absolute vacuum in 1999/2000 is that
you really just were showing shit to your friends. So
you use a Beatles song because... who gives a fuck.
Video online didn't count, because no one was doing
it. And even once it did count? I was
hosting it on my own for 7 years... I wasn't
really a target - you'd have to know me to find
- 10 years later I
put together the movie and then went to submit it to
festivals and decided to tackle the beast that was the
copyright issues... It was overwhelming, so I decided
to build a deck:
- What I love about
this particular entry, is it's the transition from
Volume 1 to Volume 2 in a nutshell. Pushing the
previous 10 years was just too painful and
overwhelming so I gave it all up and started
building. Was married 3 months later, found out we
were pregnant a month later... and BOOM -
I become construction man and my creative world
became GolfKon, then the Delorean...etc. It's actually
an amazing decade that I can't wait to tell 2010 me.
It was so fun shooting 2020 me... good stuff. This
entry is exactly 100 entries before Vienna is born.
- Of course thanks
to Fastest Delorean, I have a film distributor and
strreaming video is the NORM. Not just viable, it's
the preferred method of viewing content. Amazing. So
I started piecing it all back together - added a
new voice over - redid all the audio for 2000 and 2010
Adam and really just labored over the pacing and what
to include. My final feeling is that it's just too
damn fast. This is easily a 4 or 5 episode series. I
fly past soooooooooo much. I cut up the songs SO
much.... but it's certainly entertaining and your head
is spinning - and you watch it to the
Amazon even accepts it. In February of this year they
announced they were no longer taking any new
non-fiction. They then infamously took all my stuff
off Prime though you can still purchase it ('cause so
many people purchase streaming movies these days -
sigh - ). So we're attempting to label it "Fantasy"
since the concept is me going back in time to tell
myself the whole Journey. Longshot, but it could work.
If it doesn't? Whew. This is relegated to Youtube with
ads, Tubi TV... random streaming places like that.
Complete whitewash. I really wish I could
sign some deal with one of these streaming services so
all my content is on their platform and they just give
me the room to release a doc per year. Maybe something
to look into. Because this shit sucks.
- The movie doesn't
however, and I'm totally stoked for people to finally
see what I was made of from 2000-2010. I'm sure I'll
do a few interviews, but as is usually the case - I'm
so locked into the next project, I'm not sure I'll
have the stomach to keep trying to get press. Most
likely it will be when both volumes are done and
available - because man, after you watch the first one
you REALLY need to see that fucker catch some
- ...and catch some
breaks I did. Whew.
