Typewriter Movie Screenings

Gary Nicholson gave me the heads-up that the documentary The Typewriter (In the 21st Century) is getting U.S. screening dates settled. There's a new page on their web site listing dates and places and the promise of more news to come. Don't miss it!

More than a few Typospherical Celebrities were interviewed for the film -- as well as me. How does the insurgency address cinematic outings? Sit in the back row and type? Leave handmade leaflets on vacant seats? I imagine a gathering something like an "Occupy" protest, except the participants are more nattily dressed and have inky fingers and "boo" every time someone says the word "keychopper." (Boo!)

I wonder if it will ever get to the east side of the Atlantic?

Yes, please come to Europe!

Hello! We would love to screen in Europe. Bookstores, Museums, Universities,etc. If anyone can help put us in touch with one of these places we will happily work out some screenings in Europe. We just signed a distribution deal so the film will be available on VOD, Netflix, Amazon and other streaming platforms as well as DVD/Blu Ray very soon.

The distributor is also taking the film to MIPDOC which is where documentary films get picked up for TV distribution in Europe.

Thank you!

Clemens: can I just say that the Michael Clemens represented in the clip I've seen in no way resembles the imaginary Michael Clemens I've known for years. Not better or worse; just different.
Which is just another version of the Novel vs. Film Adaptation mental gymnastics we all go through, from time to time.

A face for radio, that's me.

Not even remotely close to what I was trying to communicate. Devilish handsome fellow you are, I'm sure.

Oh, that's just the coolest film poster. What a wonderful design! Who designed it?

@streamlinesdeluxe: Gary says...

"A guy named Grant Tatum did the initial concept and design. Chris and I then finished it ourselves."

I agree: it's classy.
