Getting Distributed: The Diary of Preston Plummer

We are super excited about the future for our new film The Diary of Preston Plummer. Our World Premiere will be held at the Miami International Film Festival on March 5th. The festival is planning a red carpet event to begin at 6:30p. At 7p, we will hold a tribute to our star Robert Loggia by showing some clips from his past films and bring him on stage for a few words. The film will then start right after.

The Miami film festival and its staff have been incredible. They have a wonderful publicity group and really work hard for your film. We have had mentions in The Hollywood Reporter and IndieWire already.

The Diary of Preston Plummer has also been picked up by Warner Bros. for digital distribution and VOD. We are aiming for an April launch date so we can begin promoting the film to the world shortly after its world premiere. Demand It! in your city by clicking the icon at the top of this blog!

At the same time, we are planning a 10-city theatrical! This is going to be a challenge because we want it to be day and date with our VOD. I am finding that theaters really do not like this. But I think for smaller indie films, it will actually help drive the theatrical as it will mean more publicity for the title.

PerezHilton posted an exclusive clip from the film and we are inching toward 20,000 hits in 48 hours. That's awesome! Check out the clip here.

Along with all this great activity comes a lot of high costs! We have to deliver the film to Warner Bros. with closed captioning in various aspect ratios and already quality controlled. This will cost us over $10k and this is $10k we don't have - yikes! So we have started an IndieGoGo campaign for the film here.

I'd love any support you may provide. If you like my blog, I would love it if you would support this little film - any amount helps! Cheers!
