Last weekend I was interviewed by Marian of the Wellywood Woman blog about my experience at Cannes and other film-related topics. The podcast is posted here. If I remember correctly, we originally connected about a year ago via Twitter. Yes, Twitter works!
(Yep, that’s me. I can think of ten thousand reasons why I don’t want to post this, or self-promote, or do publicity…)
If you’re a filmmaker and you haven’t jumped onto Twitter, I might suggest you rethink that plan. I know some people like the idea of playing the aloof filmmaker type, but that rarely serves a new filmmaker well. Unless, you’re making Sundance and Cannes hits right out of the gate, not many people will care to pay attention to you without a little nudge from you. So, do this one fun little self-promotional tactic, and get yourself an account. (Yes, I said fun. Twitter can be fun!) I suggest you choose a Twitter handle that is close to your name— you’re building your brand, afterall. I know, it’s a little gross to think of yourself as a brand, but…you kinda are.
