Had an interesting chat with Australian Film Director, Jonathan Teplitzky, whose new film “Gettin’ Square” is released here in a few weeks. We had a good converse about the marketing of films, in particular sharing my reasons for exiting the marketing and advertising field and trying my hand at…well…the film pasture. Interesting stuff the guy has to say and you can look for it in an exclusive interview here soon. In addition, Teplitzky tells me about his next couple of projects : One is based on A New York Novelists book called “Reservation Road”, about two fathers – one the perpetrator and one the father of the victim. Nice change of pace indeed.
