1. Unless your a hardcore moviemaker, I suggest you save your money. Now I know that's contradictory to my statement above saying how awesome it was, in which, yes, the experience was, but financially, it's a pain it the ass. You have the theater rentals ($100 each if you're lucky), the poster (around $50 if you want a good one), the promotion (flyers, merchandise, etc.) [around $50] so unless you live in the land of doctors and lawyers for dads, then think small. It will help you in the long run, because no matter how hard you try, there's no guarantee that you'll make all your money back, and plus some.
2. The main thing people come to the theaters for is to be entertained. So the name of the game is to get them to laugh. However if you're movie shows early in the morning like mine, you may wanna consider some 5 hour energies first. The way I see it, the funnier it is the better off you are at winning them over.
3. In the words of Jim Carrey, "Try to have fun. Otherwise, what's the point?" If you take it too serious, you'll end up being judgmental of your own work. So never under any circumstance go in thinking you got the next Spielberg movie, because chances are, you'll be thrown in the water if you do.
Other than that, I would love to do it again, and I just wanna thank everyone who helped, supported and showed up to the event.
Oh yeah I even have a few photos.
