Some of you may be wondering what happened to all the information about Blade Ronner’s Inspirational Movie Marathon. Well, life happened. Unfortunately, I had to cancel it. But I didn’t just want it to disappear with no explanation. There are two main reasons I pulled the plug.
- Work: we recently got confirmation on a new film series we’re going to produce for a new client; a project that will take a great deal of time to prep and shoot. Given the magnitude, it just doesn’t make sense to add the obligation of a daily movie review and blog post.
- The Joy Was Robbed: the original objective of this project was to inspire my work and imagination as a filmmaker and bring joy to my life. I complicated it by adding the social media contest and daily required movie review. What was initially supposed to be a fun thing for me to do has become just more work. That’s the last thing I need right now.
For those of you who were looking forward to participating, I am sorry. But, I could feel the stress of this thing building, and with the aforementioned project, the holidays, and the fact that it was no longer fun watching the movies, I decided to nip it in the bud.
I will still have a $25 gift certificate to OpenSky for anyone who re-tweeted the original three posts so far, or for anyone who commented on any of those posts. The drawing will take place next tomorrow, December 4. So, you have until 12 noon EST to comment or retweet.
Thanks for understanding.
