“It's there all right. You get in there and can't get out, you gonna wish it wasn't.” – First Griner, “Deliverance,” Warner Bros., 1972
A few weeks ago, I was in San Francisco and ran into a lady friend.
She was watching some of the dumb stuff on YouTube while I was catching up on a hilarious episodic comic series on Amazon Prime, “Please Tell Me I’m Adopted.”
“Before we go... let us remember our code… Let us do right to all - and wrong no man .” – Doc, “ Doc Savage, The Man of Bronze,” Warner Bros., 1975
With the growing popularity of YouTube and Facebook, Influencer Marketing has become the mantra of social media marketers.
They figure the folks with the biggest follower numbers mean more eyeballs. And people who don’t have the huge numbers must be less knowledgeable, less credible.
“Listen, I know this is a lot to take in, but you can't fit an idea this big into a hoop this small.” -- Tom (Larry Soileau), “ Please Tell Me I’m Adopted! ” Episode 1, “That Is Not Tom Cruise!” 2017
You meet the most interesting folks at film festivals - Sundance, Tribeca, Cinquest, etc. – and sometimes, a casual filmmaker introduction turns into something really special.
At Sundance, for example, Cirina Catania, founder/creative director of The Catania Group, dragged me over to meet two of her new close, personal friends…Nicole and Chris Sobchack, of Wraptastic Productions.
Nicole and Chris were on cloud nine because they had just placed their episodic comedy series with Amazon’s Prime content service.
