As we've reported in a previous update, we had the good fortune of having Dark Sky Films come on board this project as co-producers. Well, still deep in the editing phase of Starry Eyes, Dark Sky has set the promotion wheel in motion. And what better place to kick it off than at the largest marketing platform of the year: Comic-Con!
So Team Starry Eyes (writer/directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer and lead actor Alexandra Essoe) were invited down to San Diego to walk the red carpet at a big party they were co-hosting with ShockIntoYouDrop.com, IFC, eOne, The Haunted Hotel, Femme Fatales and DreadCentral.com.
Mind you, this was a first for us. And yes, it was actually -- kind of, sort of -- very fun. We had a line of people putting microphones in our faces and asking us questions about a film they had never heard of (that's not even out yet!). A surreal experience, to say the least. During the party, Daniela snapped the above pic of us.
A couple interviews came out from the event which may soon make their appearance online. For now, you can read two below:

'Dennis Widmyer, Kevin Kolsch, and Alex Essoe Talk Starry Eyes'
Besides schmoozing at parties and walking the red carpet, we've been hard at work in post-production, cutting the film together. It's going amazing so far and we're so excited to be able to show you all something soon.
Until then, we are beginning the prize fulfillment process of our Kickstarter. We recently had a stack of postcards printed of that evil rendering Jay Shaw did for us. We'll also be printing the posters and t-shirts soon too. So stay tuned for that!
