In The Spotlight : Give-Aways, “Streaming,” Check It!

Yes, it’s been a while . . .

but some of you might recall my repeated mentions of Hilary Goldberg‘s short film “In The Spotlight,” starring the wicked way Richter literary genius Michelle Tea, screen-writer/producer/actress extraordinaire Guinevere Turner and me, in the role of a creepy literary charlatan known as Bell Wartock. [ The smarmy, nefarious style fiend — due in no small part to the brilliance and boundless abilities of costume designer Adele Mildred — may very well have inspired a tribute and a smidgen of merch in the nascent days of his creation. I mean : Bell Wartock is, after all, “the voice of a new generation.” ]

Well, after great critical acclaim and a tour of film festivals around the world — including Inside Out Toronto, Frameline, Outfest, Vancouver Queer Film Festival, Fresno Reel Pride, Women Make Waves Taiwan, Seattle Queer, American Cinematheque Third Annual Focus on Female Directors, Reel Women International, Frederick Film Festival, Reel Pride Michigan, and The Dark Arts Festival in Salt Lake City — this meta-fictive neo-noir is finally available to watch in the comfort of your own home…for a scant 99 cents.

Still on the proverbial fence? I know; I know — it’s almost an entire dollar, maing! As you mull the idea over, feel free to peek “beneath the cut” and view the film’s official trailer, stills, and…oh yeah! Details about that give-away I mentioned!

Please Note: Photosculpture, film stills and author portraits are all the work of David Meanix.

The site freebie, however, is an autographed 8 x 10 from a promo shoot lensed by the almighty Dirk Mai. Yes, that means gorgeous Miss Guinevere will be donating inkage for the cause; yes, the inscription will be made out to whatever name you choose — and yes, I’ll toss some Meanixed postcards into the package [ along with who-knows-what else …I’m a capricious Aries eager to exit HTML hell at the moment, alright? ]

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment between now and August 24. Hooray for numerology [ 8-24-2012 ] ; massive cheers for independent film ; hallelujah for the ice cream cone I’m heading out to get. As in : like, immediately.

    Mmm, my birthday was last week – 8/15, and my mom died and it was my first birthday without her and my boyfriend has been a dick with me lately and nobody gave anything. Not one Happy Birthday card not one present. I made my boyfriend buy (with my money) a small ice cream cake the night of my birthday and when the 31 Flavors person asked him if he wanted them to write Happy Birthday, he told them “no”, because it was embarrassing he said. I would love to get something cool from you!

    I am so excited Mr Clint! To have a Dirk Mai piece tied together with the Catalyst himself wrapped in an awesome bow of fangtasticness. Happy Day.

    Ahem! Apologies for the delay in response, beloved Wes and Janessa / Janessa and Wes, but . . .

    [ See? Why spill blood over the Blah Blah Blah; like a sequel with a prequel to the So-Who-Killed-Who-Again? It just goes on. And on. And on. L O O P I T Y . L O O P E D . ]

    Instead, let’s cut to the plot points, so to speak. Plural, yet singular. Singular, yet plural.

    Chittlins, you’re both In The Win!

    Matter of fact, the most esteemable Mr. Mai Himselfness has already made an attempt to ‘ give ink ’ towards the cause. It is I who needs to coordinate the personalization of two 8 x 10s — in addition to any random loot I might toss in the packages before sending them on their ever-so merry respective directions. Although first? Of more immediate import : bring this comment to a close so that I may proceed . . . and sofort!

    Thanks, all! And of course : there’ll be plenty of other site give-aways, so keep those peepers alert! x0x0x

    Oooooooh, pick me! The e-mail address I provided is my boyfriends, mine has been down forever and I don’t know how to fix it. If by some crazy stroke of luck I am actually blessed with winning this it would probably be better to contact me through my facebook. My boyfriend will most likely delete the e-mail. haha.
    Love always and forever,
