What happened at the Mobys!?!

Adventure in New York!!!

If you’re not caught up on my recent posts, the trailer that we recently completed for uber talented Maya Sloan’s new novel, High Before Homeroom was nominated at the Moby Awards. We were a top five finalist in the Best Big Budget Book Trailer category. I joined forces with my partners and orchestrated a last-minute trip to NY to attend the award ceremony at NY’s ritzy new hot spot, The Griffin. Upon arrival, Abbie and I were introduced to Maya and immediately fell in love with her and her charming boyfriend from Denmark, Thomas Warming. Another impressive member of the entourage was Tao Norager, a documentary filmmaker who immediately evinced his affable qualities as a spiritual powerhouse. He is certainly someone to look out for in the near future. We had an amazing time with great friends. Even though, our trailer was beat out by a much larger budgeted trailer, it was hardly a loss considering all the connections that were established with other major publishing companies.

The next day, Rob Hill, Greg Sloan, and I met with maya’s publisher at the Simon and Schuster headquarters in the heart of NY and Rob blew the conference room away with his Wilmington charm as a well versed filmmaker. He was given very little to work with in terms of budget and created a true calling card that secured future business with Simon and Schuster.

I’m very blessed to be building such a great future with these talented people.

I’ll refrain from mentioning all the celebratory fun that was had by all after our business obligations were complete. Let’s just say I’m just now posting this blog and I’ve been back since Monday. GOOD TIMES! Back to work.

Latest Scoop…

Joshua Guthrie recently finished a new draft of the Social Norm script and it’s absolutely hilarious! I can’t wait to unveil some of this mental footage  to you guys. One of my new partners, Greg Sloan (TV Developer/Producer) is currently reading the script. Once he’s finished, we will then make our suggestions to Josh, let him polish up another draft, and finally present it to our other partners in Wilmywood, NC for the trailer production.

I’m psyched to be working in a circle of such talented people. I can feel some really great things on the horizon and I’m definitely getting stir crazy. It’s getting more and more difficult for me to get my mind to shut-up at night so I can sleep. I feel like if I’m not constantly brainstorming, I might miss an opportunity… It’s certainly nothing to complain about. I’d much rather have these feelings than those that go along with having nothing going on.

In other news, the High Before Homeroom book trailer was a huge hit with Simon & Schuster. We were cc’d on many e-mail strings within S&S praising the production quality, turn-around time (a third of their normal vendors), and the commercial marketability. The trailer generated such a significant buzz around the new novel that S&S agreed to print a total of 25,000 copies of Maya Sloan’s High Before Homeroom as opposed to the normal 10,000 copies that’s normally given to a newly published novelist. The trailer was sent by S&S to Twentieth Century Fox for other considerations. We will surely be seeing a lot more business from them in the near future which means many more productions in Wilmington. Can’t wait!

Oh yeah and I’m moving to South Beach, FL in a few weeks. Minor details.

Time to count some sheep.
