And now comes the part where I start hocking my goods onto you fine people. I warned you when this adventure began that I would eventually do a little bit of self-promotion, and so here it is.

My long gestating motion picture, Nocturnia, finally has an official release date.

October 16th, 2008.

Now… Before you get all excited and when can I see it and all that stuff, please know that this is only for Bolivia. I don’t have the first clue as to when it will play Stateside or if it will even be released theatrically… All signs point to a limited engagement at Galapagos in NY and then you can hunt for the little fucker on Amazon.com and Netflix if you are so inclined.

So… As I was saying… My movie opens on Thursday, October 16th in Bolivia’s 3 major cities. La Paz, Santa Cruz and Cochabamba.

Go ahead. Say it. It’s fun to say: CO-CHA-BAM-BA. Not as fun as Titicaca, but pretty damn close.

How does this affect the condition of the world?

It basically means that I have about 3 months to design and execute a pretty hefty campaign to insure butts in seats.

I have to talk to Equinoccio (kind of a low-rent CBGB) in La Paz and OZ (Its equivalent in Santa Cruz – and yes, they ripped off their logo from the TV show – which is disappointing when you actually get in there and there is no anal sex on display to speak of) to design a cross promotion and schedule the premiere parties.

I have to get the inks on the dotted lines of all the release forms to make sure no one comes around to fuck me over because of the music. About 80% of it is Bolivian bands… But what about Asobi Seksu, Minibosses and Exit Ocean…? Better get that fax machine up and running.

Basically, I have to do a whole bunch of boring bullshit that involves the low-tech marketing of a no budget, self-distributed indie.

But in a couple of months… I guess it’s all gravy.



Stay tuned.
