I met with my designer yesterday. Adele Park is doing all the packaging for the DVD and posters. It is great to have her creative input on the design, and a little overwhelming. We met at Juliens in Providence yesterday where she gave me designs for posters and postcards. I loved them all, there was one that was a simple design with only the title and a barber shop pole. I liked that one, but I didn’t think people who saw it would understand the connection. (In Korea, barber poles are the sign that sex workers are inside) The two that are pictured (with my cell phone, so the picture doesn’t do any justice) are the two I am going with. The color will be different, but the theme will be the same.
Today I went into the office and finished placing the audio commentary. I am going to pick out the extended interviews next. I showed some people the poster prints and asked what one they liked. I showed my dad and he pointed to the one with the guy with out even looking, saying “That one”. It annoys me that he has no interest in the film at all. He hasn’t seen the film, and more likely than not will not even go to any of the showings. I have put the last four years of my life into this film, and I don’t know if it is the subject matter or he just doesn’t care about what I do. I know that his lack of interest just drives me to do better, it drives me to succeed. I saw the same thing when my dad opened up his own business, his father said he would end up in a third floor flat, and my dad opened his business and was successful (with the help of my mom). I have support from others in my family, my sister helped film, my brother did voice overs, and my mom can’t stop giving me ideas about publicity and promotion. All that and I have a pretty awesome girl friend that not only helped film, she had to put up with me when I was stuck in neutral with the film and life. Now I want everyone to enjoy the ride, there is no looking back now.
