NORMAN: October 2017 Update (Video)

Hi everyone, sorry it's been quite a while since my last update on the film. It's been an insanely busy few months, and we have some really cool updates coming soon.

Norman is coming along well, and we expect to have the first half of foley finished in the next two weeks, with the second half early to mid November. Things have been a bit stressful for myself and my brother lately, having to do a bunch of extra free lance jobs, and balancing work, family, and life on top of finding time to keep chugging along with Norman.

But I want you all to know that we are really making good progress, and Jonah and I think it's still gonna happen to have Norman pretty much finished before the year is up. This might not include the final touch that is Color Grading, but at least the film will have all finished sound and will pretty much be finished. I cannot tell you how excited I will be to have it at this point.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a video I recorded with my friend on answering a question I have had asked to me many many times over the years while working on Norman.

Today's video update talks about how to promote your work so that others care about it. Hopefully you will find this interesting, because I think this is absolutely crucial in getting your idea out there and made. If you can't promote your work or talk about it in a way that gets others excited, you won't have an easy time getting it made, kickstarted, shared, etc.

One of the ways that helped my film get funded, was having a well polished site around the time when I launched. My friend owns a company called Knapsack, and he built it for me, as well as designed various logos, facebook posts, and worked with me on all things promotional related to make sure my product stood out from the rest.

What is so cool about their company, and you will learn more from watching the video, is that they can literally build you a working site all within one work day. I urge you, that if you find yourself in the same boat as me, and you have a project that needs promotion, or you are trying to kickstart something, do yourself a favor and make sure you have a good site, you have good designs, logos, etc, to the best of your ability. This makes all the difference in the world.

If you are in need of a website, I highly recommend www.knapsackcreative.com

Thanks everyone, and stay tuned, we have a lot more content coming your way in just a few weeks time.
