The time is nearing to unleash Cornerboys. The music is nearly done, and the art is coming along quickly (there’s an example on the Cornerboys page on this site). We’ll be putting the film together starting this weekend. It just keeps getting better as Ali and Kevin contribute their talent.
The world debut of Cornerboys will happen in Bismarck and Minot in late October. Both events will feature a screening of the film and a discussion and Q&A with me, Ali, and Kevin on the creative process. Then I’ll talk a little bit about Boris Karloff and the year he spent in North Dakota (1915-16), and then we’ll show The Bride of Frankenstein.
The Bismarck event, on Monday the 26th, will be at the Mysteria Theatre (which is actually in Mandan), and there will be a cash bar and appetizers for sale.
The Minot event, on Tuesday the 27th, will be at the Aleshire Theatre at Minot State University (where I gave a vampire talk three years ago).
Both events start at 7pm and are free and open to the public.
Kevin and I will be on Prairie Public Radio’s “Hear It Now” program at 3pm on Monday the 26th to talk about Cornerboys and the screening events. I’ll link to the streaming audio when it’s up.
I hope you’ll join us for these events–Halloween, goblin-style!
