Flier Away

Posted in promotion with tags , , , , on October 20, 2010 by Richard Diaz

The new 4×6 fliers arrive.

Today I received the promotional fliers. I tried making my own for the recent Sacramento Sci-Fi Horror Show which were … well. The trailer was shown (with a mixed reaction) and I needed something for people to have. Not having anything prior I made and printed a few up on my own. While I liked the design the printing was not great. These new ones I had professionally printed and I am very happy with them. I used a similar design because I think it is sort of eye catching. They are 4 inches by 6 inches. I didn’t want large ones as it’s easier to display small things that people are more likely to put into their bag instead of tossing out. I’m still learning the whole promotional aspect. It is my one weak point. I don’t promote well. Something I’m starting to do more of.

I’ll be putting these out at various events. Hopefully it helps bring attention to the film. First up is this weekend’s Horror Society Film Festival. If any of you are in the area be sure to come out. And if you see me wondering around please say hi.

Speaking of film festivals, I have had a lot of people ask me about where ‘Distortion’ will be showing. I am still working on getting it shown somewhere. It is a slow process. The news will be posted here once it is.

Promotional flier for 'Distortion'.

On Saturday September 25th at the Sacramento Sci-Fi/Horror Show there will be a special showing of the ‘Distortion’ trailer as well as a scene from the film with an introduction by Deneen Melody. She will be there promoting several projects including the upcoming web series Western X which will be having the world premiere of the first three episodes on Sunday the 26th. Creator Michael Flores did this very awesome promo for it:

Unfortunately I will not be there but if you will be or are in the area do go. I printed up a few copies of a special lobby card featuring Deneen which will be available at her table for free. She is very sweet so say hi and check out all of her other amazing projects.

Some more ‘Distortion’ news is in the works but also check out the blog for my upcoming film ‘Dark Lighthere.

A very quick update. I’m working on the final bits of ‘Distortion’ so it is literally days away from being completely done. Also the new trailer is almost done as well. Once it is expect it to be posted everywhere I possibly can.

In the meantime the awesome people over at the Horror Society did this piece on the film which is filled with stills. I hope you like it. Including stuff I have not posted anywhere else.

Big thanks to Mitch at the Horror Society. Also be on the look out for an upcoming interview I’ll be doing with them. I am so excited!

Now back to work.
