Looking for Suggestions

December 31, 2012

After this year’s SXSW, I decided to refrain from posting. After all, as I said, I didn’t want to give away too many spoilers on this project. Also, I wanted to focus on finishing schooling, which I did in May. I actually thought about deleting this completely, but I decided to make this post instead.

If I still belonged to Shooting People, I might ask this question on one of their lists, but since I’m not, I’m posting it here.

I am looking for a music supervisor. Specifically someone who has experience working on low budget productions, and experience with negotiating with Indie Bands (and more than just bands pulled off of MySpace). If you know someone who fits my qualifications (or if you do), please contact me at erin at erinscherer.com.

Also, I’m looking for accommodations for 2013 SXSW. Preferably something that’s within three miles of the Austin Convention Center. These are accommodations for two people (women). The cheaper the better.

Otherwise, Happy New Year!

Looking for accommodations for Austin

February 18, 2012

Next month, my friend and I will be coming to Austin for this year’s SXSW Film Festival. At this point, I pretty much have everything in place: our flights have been arranged, and we have our passes. I’m so close to it I can taste it! Only one major thing we still need…

…Housing. We will be arriving on Friday, March 9th, and leaving on Wednesday evening, March 14th. We are currently searching for accommodations, and would prefer a location that’s within three miles of Austin Convention Center (makes it convenient for cheaper cab rides), and near a bus stop. Please understand that we are on a tight budget, and are looking for accommodations that $150 per night or less.

If you have accommodations for us, please contact me at erin at erinscherer.com using the subject line “SXSW QCC Blog Housing”. Thank you.

RIP Whitney…

BAM!

June 25, 2011

NY was a blast.

I went down on the 17th for BAMCinemafest. The Catechism Cataclysm was just as fun the second time around (I saw it first at SXSW). This was my first time attending a Rooftop Films event, although it was held in a parking lot across the street from BAM Rose Cinemas, so maybe it should have been called “Parking Lot Films”? Anyway, I got to see a lot of people, like the film’s director, Todd Rohal, its stars, Steve Little and Robert Longstreet, as well as Michael Tully, Sophia Takal, and Lawrence Levine.

Sunday Night, I saw The Color Wheel with my friend Brian, who runs The Film Panel Notetaker. The Color Wheel is a very offbeat road movie about two siblings who set out on a road trip after JR (Carlen Altman) is dumped by her professor (Bob Byington). Michael Tully called the film a sitcom version of Frownland. The Color Wheel has similar themes that more mainstream independent films have, but with the “developed” aspect removed, The Color Wheel‘s characters are more absurd (in the existentialist sense of the term) rather than cartoonish. At the Q&A following the screening, Carlen Altman, the co-star and co-writer of the film, was genuinely grateful to be there:

“This is the first time I’ve finished a creative endeavor,” she said. (Okay, these weren’t her exact words, but she said something very similar.)
