EP. 16: BITE ME: A JOYFUL CONVERSATION ON FILM DISTRIBUTION feat. Naomi McDougall Jones and Sarah Wharton
PINK AMONG MEN IS BACK!
Season 2 kicks off with guests Naomi McDougall Jones, writer/producer and star, and Sarah Wharton, producer, of the new Romantic Comedy feature BITE ME!
In this chat, we focus on the challenges and biases of the indie film distribution model and how Naomi and Sarah took matters into their own hands with The Joyful Vampire Tour of America, showcasing BITE ME! at 51 screenings in over 40 cities across America. We also talk about the romantic comedy genre, vampires and how the two obviously go together.
MORE ON BITE ME!
BITE ME is a subversive romantic comedy about a real-life vampire and the IRS agent who audits them. The filmmakers of BITE ME are taking a radical approach to film distribution. For 3 months they are taking the film on a 51-screening, 40-city, RV-fueled Joyful Vampire Tour of America, featuring screenings, Q&As and Joyful Vampire Balls. The film is simultaneously available to rent or buy on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, as well as streaming on Seed & Spark. The team is also releasing a weekly docu-series on YouTube with new episodes each Saturday that follows the tour and offers filmmakers and audiences a transparent case study in a ground-breaking distribution model.
