publicity blues



ok officialy i have no support or clue of any sort to publicize my movie. and thats killing me man. shit,fuck. why does anyone need to publicize their picture anyways??...
considering the film is 'okayed' by the censors...i wish all i had to do was to rent a movie hall for one show and see how it goes..

sigh..yeah i know i am not making sense. but just the thought that i must now try and work on the publicity of this film is mind numbing. i have been meeting a few press agents and all...and some of them have some ideas up their sleeve...i guess i must get into it somehow or the other...
i've got a few interviews lined up with newspapers...but the thought of meeting them and having something to say....urrrgggghhh...dunno, somehow dis-concerting...
i have to dissect and explain my film...communicate...well enough to set the right kind of expectations for my film. you know, i was telling this to someone one day...publicity right or wrong...is not about just making sure everyone's heard about your film....and its not about creating over expectations et al...

publicity i think, 1)has to create the right set of expectations about the film for the right kind of people.
2)never stretch too far from the set demographic audience you have in mind,its also a waste of precious time,money and effort.
yeah.
well i am writing all of this down really for myself you know...thats what i have been thinking about mostly today...

HOW THE FUCK DO I PUBLICIZE MY FILM??....WHATS THE RIGHT WAY?....WHERE DO I START?...HMM...I WISH I HAD SOMEONE TO THINK AND PLAN AND EXECUTE ALL OF THIS FOR ME...
I WISH IT WAS SOMETHING I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO..SOMETHING I'D ENJOY....SHIT WHY AM I WRITING IN CAPS...forget it i cant re-write all of this...

anyways...publicity...yeah...publicity....how do i do this? i remember not doing anything for 'dollar dreams'. we just booked a hall and people came in...times have changed since then huh? yeah.
hmmm....publicity...how does one do this...especially for a film that can so easily be dismissed as pretentious,arrogant and selfish...

i am none of that in real life..but i have been told my film is like that...hmm...well..well...well...
publicity...publicity...publicity...
just came back from a show of nishabd...didnt like it...theatre was almost empty...cant imagine why rgv made the film...but anyways...atleast he got enough publicity huh? he gets soooooo much for all his film...no matter whether they work or not....he gets a high recall value on all his films...pretty neat huh? yeah...something in me, suddenly said i should be showing my film to him...

atleast i know it'll get all the publicity it'll ever need. got his no: anyone? :)
