Well it was an unequivocal success. All the stars aligned, and we had an excellent time. Now, of course, I'm using the royal "we". But I do want to include all the people there. Now what exactly am I referring to here? Well the L.A. Premiere of The Test of course.
'The Test' will be arriving in Hollywood in just two short weeks. OK, technically it's not Hollywood, but Beverly Hills so what do you want? I'm excited to premiere it in tinseltown and hope to get the kind of response I'm looking for from distributors and/or potential partners in the film.
So I met with Steve yesterday and we went over the budget from his perspective. Instead of randomly picking a sum of 25 thousand dollars and trying to make it, Steve in all his wisdom decided we should look at actual expenses and then raise that money.
Well the verdict is in, we're doing this thing on a $25,000 budget. I'm going to raise the funds by getting 5 people to invest $5,000 and we're going to make the best micro-budget comedy anyone's ever made.
My issue as I see it is that I have an amazing script a great talent as an actor and I have to crash the gates of Hollywood somehow. So there's a couple of ways to go.
