Award winning Actor/Producer Paul J. Alessi came on to talk about his romantic comedy Knuckle Draggers. I felt like I was talking to an actor from the Sorpranos!
Paul was a lot of fun with his New York attitude and telling stories about how his film came together, working with his cast and crew. He is doing a great job of promoting and marketing his film, something that every filmmaker needs to pay attention to. There is more product then ever out there, and if you’re going to stand out, you have to put in the time. We get into that a little and Alessi offers up some websites.
The F. Gary Grey story (Grey directing credits include: “Be Cool” “The Negotiator” & “The Italian Job”) alone is worth watching the interview. But lots of other great material including how he auditioned for and got on the CBS reality show “The Amazing Race”…
Knuckle Draggers is still on the festival circuit; and, it will be closing the Real Heart Festival in Toronto this Saturday. I’ll announce on the message boards when it’s going to be released. I’m looking forward to it. And/Or you can keep up with it here: http://www.knuckledraggersmovie.com
