Come On Down!

Several years ago my step-daughter and her friend made a movie!  A real movie.  Like the kind you would go to a theater and watch.  It's a documentary about contestants on the fan-tabulous Price Is Right TV show and it's a blast to watch.  Right now the girls are trying to get it picked up by a distributor so that you can actually GO to a theater and watch it.

I don't really understand the whole process involved with distributing/selling the movie.  But I do know that it is going to be shown at the San Francisco Documentary Film Festival on October 18th and 20th.  So if you are a fan of the Price Is Right or indie film makers, here's your chance to see Caryn and  Jeruschka's film.  I wish we were closer so we could attend, but it's not to be.

Here are the details in Caryn's own words:

COME ON DOWN!! THE ROAD TO ‘THE PRICE IS RIGHT’ Premiere screening at the SF Documentary Film Festival Saturday, October 18, 2008 7:15 pm Monday, October 20, 2008, 7:15 pm San Francisco –Come On Down! The Road to ‘The Price Is Right’ will debut in San Francisco on Saturday, October 18th as part of the San Francisco Documentary Film Festival. The world premiere screening will take place on Saturday, October 18th , at 7:15 pm at the Roxie Cinema (3117 16th Street in San Francisco ) and will be followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers. A second screening will take place on Monday, October 20th, at 7:15 pm at the Roxie. Come On Down! The Road to ‘The Price Is Right’ is a film about game show culture, the American dream, and the once-in-a-lifetime experience of hearing the words… “Lucky Lucy, come on down!!” The diverse cast of characters includes rock bands, college students, scholars, grandmas, fanatics, and "regular Joe's." The TPIR stories collected offer a hilarious and lighthearted glimpse at a truly unique staple of American popular culture as devotees live their "American dream." As one fan proclaimed, "I compare it to Canterbury Tales…I think it truly is an American pilgrimage." This documentary is a debut feature for filmmakers Caryn Capotosto and Jeruschka White.

Sally, That is great news! Congratulations to your stepdaughter, and I really hope the film gets distribution. (Selling a film and getting it distributed is a very tough thing and very complicated). I'll look out for it!

Hey! I am dashing to retreat, but will be back to read this post. Your site is one I plan to continue to visit. It has the balance I enjoy in life - a little bit of everything... especially you! xoxo

This is so cool. I checked out the link you posted and saw the *teaser*. How much fun! Many, many years ago I *worked* the Indy awards as a page or runner or gofer or whatever. My favorite genre and folk! I hope they do well. xoxo
