HOME TO SAN ANTONE

promising for ages that we would have a San Antonio screening of EvenHand,
it is finally happening, courtesy of the San Antonio Police
Department and Cypress Films. The film will screen twice on the night of October 30 as
a benefit for the 100 Club, Bexar County's widows and orphans
organization. The bad news is that the screenings are both sold out.
The good news is that we will also be screening the film for two
days at the Bijou theater in San Antonio on November 10th and 11th.
For details, please see the Festivals
Other upcoming screenings include:
benefit for the Historic House Trust of NYC & the Preservation
League of NY State on November 6th
Queens Film Festival on November 16, as part of their 9/11
Santa Fe Film Festival on December 6
Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY (TBD)
other recent news, I have finally completed the extras for the DVD.
The most difficult was the director's commentary. I polled a number
of people before recording it to ask what they expected when they
listened to a commentary track. One comment I heard from several
people was that the least enjoyable commentaries were the ones for
which the directors didn't do any advanced preparation. As a result
I spent several days writing my comments, many hours refining them
to picture and, finally, a few hours actually recording the comments
in the studio. The content runs the gamut from production anecdotes
and trivia to thoughtful discussion of the characters. Hopefully,
there is a little something for everyone.
included on the DVD will be the complete SWAT
scene, a hilarious (I've been told) deleted
scenes montage and an interview with the incomparable Mike Doughty in which he
discusses his inspiration for the songs he wrote for EvenHand, shows
us his super high-tech equipment and reveals the secret origins of
Go-Go Boy. He even sings a live version of "Get Along"
accompanying himself on a Chinese mandolin. Cool!
has also made three songs available in their entirety for us to include on the DVD:
"Sweet Francis" (the NEW version that's not in the film),
"The Devilish Verve of the Age is Like a Man With a Staple
Gun" (there's only about 45 seconds in the film) and "In
the Split" (not used in the film, but scores the SWAT scene
very effectively). A treasure trove for Doughty fans and a great
listen for anyone who likes outstanding music.
