This Wednesday, July 24, 2013 will mark the World Premiere of Dead Votes Society at Yavapai College Performing Arts Center during “Prescott on the Big Screen,” the 4th Annual Prescott Film Festival showcase of locally made cinema.
Since we started pre-production in September 2012, we’ve worked towards this date. Spent thousands of dollars. Worked very, very late. Got up early the next day to squeeze in some more before day job began. Sunday night, we showed it to our cast and crew in the lounge at Taj Mahal Restaurant. They broke up laughing and that wasn’t too surprising. What was surprising were the waitstaff from the dining room crowding in the door way to watch the film and laughing, laughing. Also surprising, when we showed the film a second time for cast who had to show up late, it actually got bigger laughs from the people who’d already seen it once.
As a comedy writer, that’s wonderful. You can see Dead Votes Society Wednesday night at 6pm in the YCPAC or Sunday, July 28th at 4pm in Yavapai College’s Building #19.
But, if you could do me favor, go to the World Premiere. Not only will you get to see it before most anyone else in the world has seen it and enjoy some great laughs, but they’ll be handing out ballots as you come in the door for the Audience Choice Awards.
Please do consider us for your vote. Some laughter might come in handy these days. And we’ve got just the zombies for the job. Viva los Zombies!
