Video Fun Part Six: Production

Wow. Things are getting intense. We are less than a week away from the premiere of HC. It doesn't seem real, yet. I've been thinking a lot recently about the beginning of this project, five years ago, when Darren and I got a little motel room in Humboldt, completely unaware that we were about to embark on something that would take longer than a presidential term to complete. My god.

Lots of comings and goings this week. We've been doing a bunch of publicity stuff - interviews for the Hollywood Reporter, blogs for the Huffington Post etc. When stuff airs, we'll let you know. Also, I've just been trying to get everything together and in order for the week to come.

And what a week it will be. On Tuesday night, I attend the Fox premiere of a film I acted in called Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation. Yes, it's a remake of the Tom Hanks comedy from the 80s and yes it's a ridiculous teen sex comedy and yes, my bare ass does make a cameo. Still, I think it came out pretty well and you should all buy a copy when it comes out on DVD on March 11th. Okay, there's my plug. And here's the poster (and yes, I have ridiculous facial expression in it):

So after the premiere on Tuesday night, I fly to Austin to meet Darren on Wednesday. Once there we will begin passing out these:

It might be a little hard to see in the photo, but those are "Humboldt County" rolling papers baby! They have our screening information on them and are really cool. Dgro and I will be handing them out on the streets once we hit Austin to drum up some buzz. Yet another incentive to make your way to SXSW.

Then comes Friday at 6 PM. The premiere of "Humboldt County." Just typing it makes me nervous. Darren and I are hoping to be able to stay in the theater for the duration of the film, but we may have to duck out and head to a bar for a drink if our nerves get the best of us.

Finally, the week culminates with my birthday celebration the next night. What a week it will be. And miles to go before I sleep.

Oh, and here's another video. In this one, we blather about the production.
