GWBG Needs Your Remote Cameos More Than Evie Needs...
”Whats wrong? Did my glass eye roll back?” No Evie… your glass eye did not roll back but there is one tiny issue. But no worries because you, the fabulous fans of GWBG can help! The good people who are working hard to bring you more GWBG are missing a few of the remote Cameos that were sent in as part of our Kickstarter campaign. The files that were originally sent in have...
Money Cruise and Cock Holmes Split?!?
Jesus! No sooner had I peeled my vomit-stuck cheek from the kitchen floor and poured myself another dog of the dog that bit me than I see Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have gotten divorced! You could have knocked me over with a feather, or just waited a few seconds for me to pass out again! I never understood those two. I mean, he’s obviously straight or else how do you explain the two...

Additional shooting day 2
Well today someone was almost killed, sorta-kinda. For the past few months I have been working nonstop on GWBG 2012 — first editing like mad to make the Sundance-rejects-us-anyway deadline, and then, once that was revealed to be impossible, getting the new material ready for these reshoots. In the process a lot of my usual pastimes have fallen away, for instance retiring into the living...
Additional shooting day 1
Today was the first of four days of additional shooting for GWBG2012. Everyone kept saying “can you believe it’s been a year…” and I would bristle and correct them that it had only been ten and a half months. But yes, there’s no excuse for taking this long to finish a little drag movie. It was a lot of fun, all of us together again. We never had a wrap party...
Your Thanksgiving Weekend GWBG 2012 Update
It’s been a long time since I wrote one of these “making of” posts, probably because most the things going on in the making of GWBG2012 are long processes like editing and effects work about which there’s not much to say. Also sloth. Another big part of why I haven’t is pure sloth on my part. Editing is going well, albeit in a frustratingly slow, dull-dull-dull way....
11/15 in LA: Girls Will Be Girls →
Join us in Los Angeles on November 15th for a rare showing of the original Girls Will Be Girls film. Coco, Evie, writer/director Richard Day will be on hand for a Q&A after. All money will go to The LA Gay and Lesbian Center’s Services and the finishing funds for Girls Will Be Girls 2012, the sequel!
Anonymous asked: we really want to help, and my friends and i are um, whats the best way to say addicts? we are ADDICTED to GWBG! I think we can quote it verbatim. How do we submit the fan vids and what are the parameters? We're not fancy gays, just some sassy Midwesterners with a flipcam.
If anyone is bored enough to want to read an unrelated screenplay I wrote called “Love Spencer,” you can download it for free here. It’s about a boy who becomes a child star; it’s not remotely similar GWBG, but I like it. We financed GWBG 2012 through Kickstarter, and this one would be through Amazon. The more I write about Hollywood, the further I get from it. ...
GWBG2012 remote cameo update
After a couple weeks of quiet there has been a sudden flood of them. Well maybe six? But they’re work, so that’s a lot. At first I couldn’t figure out why, and then I remembered I’d said people had until the end of July. I’d wait til the last minute if I were doing one too. Anyway tomorrow I’ll go through them and post stills. Thank you to everybody for...

Help Spread the Remote-Cameo Word!
Several gay blogs have been nice enough to run items on our remote cameo drive, and the response has been encouraging. You’ve actually pretty much seen it — we post stills of every one that comes in. These things aren’t all that hard to do, though not everyone has the time, camera or inclination. If that’s you but you’d still like to help, then please download...
Anonymous asked: For the viral video scenes, do you want people to say anything? Or just watch, then duck out?

Easy, Fun GWBG2012 Remote Cameo Instructions!
There are two sequences in the film where we will cut in footage people have taken of themselves and sent to us. So, if you would like to be in “Girls Will Be Girls 2012,” it’s as easy as this: The two sequences are: People around the world watching an internet video; People around the world watching TV. We encourage you to shoot yourself for both to increase the chances of...

GWBG 2012 Remote Casting Call
It’s been a couple weeks since I began to push for people to send in remote cameos of themselves for “Girls Will Be Girls 2012,” and so far the response has been… well, nonexistent (even after Queerty did an item!) I totally get it — the instructions make it seem kinda hard. And maybe it is hard, but the instructions describe sort of the best-case scenario, and are...
Thank You 'Queerty!' And a Recursive Re-Blog Back... →
Also: I think the conversion rate of people who hear about this to people who actually do it could be kind of small (so far Scott and Tim are the only ones who have gone the distance) so the more people who can get the word out the better the chances we can actually pull these sequences off. Other gay blogs? People on Twitter? Spread the word and we will be wildly grateful, except Evie. ...
Film your own Girls Will Be Girls 2012 cameo!
I’ve gotten really excited about this — anyone who can should have a friend or two over (I’m thinking of your friend who does drag) and follow the easy instructions in the document at the other end of this link: http://bit.ly/ihJbHh Okay, it’s not that easy, but it’s not impossible. And if it is impossible, then just do one of those YouTube “someone...

GWBG 2012 becomes crowdsourced!
I don’t think we’re the first feature film to be entirely funded by the internet, though we are in the first handful. But I bet we’re the first feature film ever to also be made, in part, by fans. See, one of our Kickstarter premiums was a walk-on role in the film. A lot of people chose this one, so when you see the movie, whenever a character has just one line it’s a...
