Here's a copy of our latest update that went out this past Friday:
THE LAST LULLABY (AND) PERIL UPDATE
April 23, 2010
Thank you all for taking time to register for our updates. Today I will cover four topics:
- MovieMaker Reboot!
- Next Peril Event
- Lullaby News
- Other Fun Stuff
I'm very excited to announce that I have resumed my blog with MovieMaker, "the world's best-selling independent movie magazine". MovieMaker has decided to reboot my favorite film from 1926-2008 series that I have been doing for the last several months over at the LULLABY/PERIL blog. This reboot will bring a whole new audience to the series, and I hope some of you will visit, too:
*For most of last year, I blogged weekly for MovieMaker. These posts can be found here:
All is going great with PERIL. One of the most fun things we've been doing lately is periodic chats on the internet, using ustream. This technology allows everyone to tune in at a certain time, see and hear me, and converse using a chat box. We have our next ustream chat this Tuesday at 9PM, CST. All of you can tune in from your computer, anywhere in the world, simply by visiting: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/prize-for-our-next-target-2-000-fans
An account with ustream is free, but you will need to sign up in order to enable a chat box. It's a great, new tool. And here's video from our last ustream chat to give you a sense of how they work:
I will keep you posted on new developments for THE LAST LULLABY. In the upcoming issue of Videoscope magazine (http://www.videoscopemag.com/), there is a wonderful review of the film as well as a fantastic piece, written about LULLABY by Max Allan Collins. There's also this really nice interview I did recently: http://www.erbzine.com/mag31/3113.html
And just a reminder: over at the PERIL Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=249626084292&ref=ts), we're doing a daily movie trivia game. Each day's winner will be entered into a drawing to win a role as an extra while we're filming PERIL. The movie trivia game will continue until we hit 3,000 members. At that time, we'll have the drawing. We're having fun with it, and I hope that many of you will join the group and come play with us.
Lastly, as I mentioned in my previous update, I have created several places for people to begin following PERIL. Here are all the different places we have so far. I hope that many of you will join us here:
