A Big Day
Thursday has me working a gig with the act i cannot talk about. OK, I CAN talk about it now, but I am choosing not to mention it until i am officially placed into the promo materials, the website, and so on.
Anyway, what makes this gig so important is that it will represent the first time since we started working together that we will have high-quality video rolling. In fact, a three camera shoot will be taking place and that is way cool.
Without the good video (all we have thus far is camcorder footage...not good enough for where we want to take the act) we cannot update the promo. We also cannot fully emphasize to the buyers, the agents, and the destination management companies that we have a NEW and considerably funnier and more versatile act than the previous incarnation (the version that worked steadily for 7 years without being funnier and more versatile).
SO...I really need to be on top of my game and I really need the audience to be dying from hysterical, uncontrollable laughter.
We also have a second chance at some HQ video in February. Truthfully I am hoping we'll just use this first video to get SOMETHING out there and then re-edit after the next gig. It is already the end of January and waiting until the end of February will eat up some VALUABLE marketing opportunities.
Once we have the good video, we have the updated promo, and we then have the tools to get us the TV spots, the corporate gigs, and all the gigs that are fit to print...or play...or whatever.
Keeping fingers crossed for a good - GREAT show!
