Editorial Note: That Guy: the Legacy of Dub Taylor was never released beyond its screening in Augusta, Georgia, but this series of entries shows the thought process that went into working on my first film.
As we do periodically get emails about this topic, it is not available to the public.James Kicklighter
Hey guys -
I know it's been a while since I updated this, so here's a brief update:
1) The first screening in Augusta, GA was a huge success, we were overcapacity! They had to bring chairs into the lobby to accomadate the crowd. In fact, the folks at the Morris Museum told us that this was the largest showing for an event that they could remember.
Thanks for your support!
2) We're still shooting. There are people who still want to do interviews and people we still want to join us. Why wouldn't we? The more the merrier, right?
This week, we're off to Indiana to go interview rocker John "Cougar" Mellencamp...that's right...THE John Mellencamp. He directed and acted with Dub in the 1992 Columbia Pictures' film "Falling from Grace." In the upcoming weeks, we're hoping to line up a few more people that are in the works.
Naturally, I'll post them here as they are confirmed, I wouldn't want to get anyone's hopes up. My emotions are toyed with enough, no need to get you guys involved...
3) We don't have distribution yet, because frankly, we're not at the point where we're ready to present the project yet.
The Taylor Family has seen the rough cut and we're encouraged by their response. When everything is worked out and everything is ready, trust me, the blog will be the first place you'll hear about it.
I certainly hope by this time next year, the world will be reminded of the fantastic career of Dub Taylor, a true story of inspiration for anyone from a small town who wanted to make it in the world.
