Howdy all, this will not be an epic ala Large! After sucking it up with pain pills I fled Maine at 3:00am Tuesday for Orlando. Thanks to AA I took 18 hours to arrive in one piece. The show is in one locale, movies at another, and events all over. They have buses up the wahoo! so things move fairly well. I saw FINDING FORESTER last night/ rough print about a hiding genius who befriends a local black genius kid in the Bronx... kind of all over the place but needs edit treatment... look for a big release before Xmas. I just saw Vertical Limit ..this is the mountain climbing flick that almost opened last summer.... it was strictly intense edge of the seat adrenilin gut crusher. It will be a huge picture. It's not like you'll love it but you'll go and see it. The trade show opens in a few minute. I'm meating up with a lot of you...Greg Borr of RTS and his crwew just had lunch. Blackwell Theatre of Marietta bought me a drink last night. Met with Exhibitor Relations, Paul Degarabedian to provide free Monday morn e-mail of grosses partnering arrangement. We're working here!

Large travels with a lap top but I don't have one. I have to pay 6$ to use this thing! Forgetttabout it!

More about Orlando and Show East later.

Ciao! See you on the radio!

Phase two: I'm grueling here! This show eats a guy alive! I mean it's long with no hours to yourself and all work/play all the time. Dinner/brekfast/movie/trade show/go-go-go.

Saw more movies: Though I passed on The Family Man the buzz was ecstatic and highly positive. Universal was pissed I did not go but meetings called! Men of Honor was very good but lagged at the end. 13 Days was perfect and will go very well. Vertical Limit still has me ga-ga. You could never enjoy this movie but you'll have to see it. Expect huge box-office. Miss Congeniality was cute--in one eye and out the other... no big deal and def not big stuff. I'm off to see Legend of Bagger Vance.... I'll need to sleep a month!

The big news is I made a deal with Exhibitor Relations to e-mail their box office figures every Monday morning to any biggiescreenites.... that will be a free subscribe for you and a normal 40.00 per week cost... we keep adding bells and whistles.

Which reminds me: what do you want on this site? What service could we best provide you?

I'm outta here! best/ Mike

Our biggest problem as an independent is getting promotional materials in a timely manner.

We didn't get Best in Show posters and trailers until we booked the film the Tuesday before opening.

We need Quills posters and trailers.
We need Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon posters and trailers.
We need the distributors to take a chance on us and send us the promotional material when we ask and not give us the runaround.

Mike,
Hope the rest of the show went well for you. It was nice meeting you and putting a face with the name.

The Trade Show went very well for RTS, although some other vendors were a little disappointed with the attendance. Overall it was much easier setting up and tearing down than years past in Atlantic City.

We did sign a deal with ERC and all that's need now is to have the web guys build it. We will probably auto subscribe everyone who is registered. I'm going to try and paste this in. Probaby not successfully! Look for a coherent version shortly!
