eye full, family visit etc
bill and joanne are visiting from gloucester via münchen. they arrived thursday evening, we had dinner at zest. serena was working, and mounir and ali were there, and we saw robert and garrett and talked about politics and religion.
on friday morning, i got word that the final actor in our 'eye full' casting puzzle had said yes, but that her agent wanted approval of our press release announcing the cast. so i wrote up the announcement and sent it to michele. have not heard anything back about that.
friday afternoon i took bill and joanne with me to pick up some preliminary 'eye full' t shirts we had made for photos, and then we went to hang out at kees's place, and in the evening went to tong's for dinner courtesy of bill.
while at kees's house, i got a phone call from a lady named kim at voordekunst.nl who said that [a] we can only start a campaign there after our indiegogo campaign ends, and that [b] she thinks the amount we're asking for (about 10 percent of the whole budget, just enough to get the exteriors in the can) is a very high amount. so i'm having serious doubts about that avenue of fundraising for a feature film. we have had lots of love, but very little luck getting people to donate to our indiegogo campaign. it might help once we are free to show who's in the film. but i guess we need to focus on other means of raising money for the film.
eye full bv, the company, exists now. i have the paperwork, now need to start a bank account. it would be nice to get that done monday if i can.
today (saturday) joana is supposed to take some photos of nadia and djox wearing our t shirts. then we can add those images to our igg page.
tonight kaloyan is throwing a birthday party for his 30th, at zest.
