'Your Milkman' Receives First Laurels!
One of the main reasons I began this blog was to document the process of making my short, Your Milkman. Well for those of you who haven't heard yet, we completed post production a few weeks ago and have begun entering the film into smaller festivals. So far we've submitted the film into five festivals and will be slowly submitting it to more down the line.
While we weren't expecting to hear back from any of them until at least August or September, I'm proud to say that we received an email this week saying that we were an official selection for the Action On Film festival!
This is my first attempt at submitting a project into the festival circuit, so I've done quite a bit of reading on it and nearly everyone advises to really know your film's worth and potential and target festivals that suit your particular project; and we did. We've been going for festivals that see more of the smaller, up-and-coming teams, and so far it's looking promising.
My goal for entering the film into these smaller festivals is to take all of the earnings we receive and put them towards the next film (which will be going into pre-production in October or November). Even if we could raise 20% of what we're wanting, I'd feel like it was worth it. So here's to the first of hopefully many more laurels that we can put next to Your Milkman!
