My friend Stevie is coming to town this Wednesday! This, of course, means massive cleaning for me, as I’m not one to clean as I go. I still have to vacuum, clean the bathroom, and finish the dishes. But that’s not the point of this post.
I’m fairly certain no one actually reads this blog, but just in case, I want to share with you the reason Stevie is comin’ to L.A.–the first public screening of her documentary, IRL (in which I’m featured! more than once!):
It’s been a tremendously long road (going on 4 years *gulp*) but “IRL (In Real Life)” aka the Bronze documentary is done and will be having its first public screening in LA on March 10th! (A fitting date â€”the 10 year anniversary of the Buffy pilot 😉
For anyone who doesn’t know, “IRL” is the first documentary to look at online communities and relationships and what happens to them when they move into “real life.” The film chronicles the life, death and afterlife of an online community called “The Bronze,” made up of fans from the official website for “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer.” The film is about online communities in general but specifically about a community of fans and it allows the fans to finally tell their stories directly, in their own words.
The goal for this event is to attract some attention and publicity and hopefully interest a distributor so that the film can actually get to the people who’ve been waiting for it all this time – YOU. In order for that to happen, we need people to hear about the screening and to come, so please, share this info with everyone you can think of, especially those of you in the SoCal area. We need a good turnout and we need to get some buzz going!
The screening will be held at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles (655 N. Van Ness Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038) at 2pm PST on Saturday March 10th. The screening is FREE though parking in the area is not. Also there is limited seating. You can RSVP to save a seat by emailing IRLScreenings@gmail.com (please put the letters “LA” in the subject line).
As an added bonus, our very own Allyson will be doing a reading from her FORTHCOMING BOOK! “Will The Vampire People Please Leave The Lobby?” before the screening. The two of us will be doing a Q&A afterwards about the Bronze, 10 years of Buffy, and whatever else comes into our heads, I imagine. 🙂
If you want visual aids: The trailer is up at YouTube:
And we now have a myspace page:
Spread the word! Seize the fish! You can’t stop the signal! etc.
Please note Will the Vampire People Please Leave the Lobby? is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, so go pre-order it! The sis and I are mentioned several times in it!
