SO YOU WANNA BE A STAR:
The Chainletter Tapes:
1. Send send me a high quality copy of your film or video on regular (1/2
inch SP) VHS video tape, miniDV or DVD. The tape should begin with 30 seconds of black. If
your movie is longer than 20 minutes I may only be able to include an
excerpt. It is best if you pick the excerpt or make a short
version/trailer. Put your name/address/phone #/email address on the tape,
as well as the length of your movie. Do not send your original movie; you
will not get your tape back.
2. Write one letter to the nine other lady-moviemakers who you will be
sharing the tape with. You can do no wrong: advice, questions,
schemes,scams, confessions. The chances are very high that at least one of
these ladies will know what you're talking about. You also might want to
mention what you shot/edited with, how you gained access to this equipment,
and how you found out about Joanie 4 Jackie. The dimensions of your letter
should be within 5.5inches x 4.25 inches (1/4 a piece of standard paper).
Your letter will be reproduced exactly as it is received, so make sure it's
readable and that your pictures and decorations will xerox well. Don't
forget to include your mailing address and or email address. You can also email your page to
email@example.com. And let me know how you found out about Joanie 4 Jackie.
3. Now sit on the curb and wait 1-6 months for your Joanie 4 Jackie Tape to
arrive. The Chainletter tapes are an ongoing project, so you can send your
movie at any time, or keep sending your movies as you make them.
