We All Make Choices. What's Yours?
The tag line for the upcoming movie THE LAST KISS. I know I'm going to love this movie. I know it from the trailor. I know it because it stars Zach Braff. This Jersey boy has excellent taste and oozes talent.
You may know him from "SCRUBS", one of the few truly clever sitcoms running these days. He also wrote, directed and starred in a gem of a movie, GARDEN STATE. For one so young, he's awfully deep. And did I mention talented? Hard to label Zach as he does it all and does it all well. He's an actor, director, writer, and producer. Oh, and he coordinates mean sound tracks. I'm thinking 'artist' covers it, covers Zach.
Artist, Zach Braff has a killer blog going. Novelists aren't the only ones using blogs as a promotional and networking device. Zach's working the Internet with the same imagination and energy as promo whiz, film maker Kevin Smith. I've been popping in on Zach's blog now and then over the past year and a half. He's pretty good about posting regularly, but now he's really turned up the heat. You see he has a new movie coming out, and it looks like another gem. But maybe not something that appeals to the masses. It's about friendship and love. Life and making choices. Pretty sure there's no stuff blowing up, car chases, or eye-popping special effects.
New authors and mid-list authors have to work their tails off to get the same notice and audience as a NYC best-selling author. I guess it's the same for Indi or 'relationship' artists. Hard to compete with the blockbusters.
So, in addition to press junkets, and all of the other normal promo stuff, Zach's blogging. And his blog ROCKS. Hop over and check out all the bells and whistles. The videos are awesome and I love, love, love his taste in music. Just as I bought the soundtrack to GARDEN STATE, I'll be scarfing up the soundtrack to THE LAST KISS. But the real charm is in his posts.
I'm sure Zach doesn't need my help in promoting his new film, but I'm putting in my two-cents anyway. Because he seems like a nice guy. Because he's uniquely talented. Because I think you'll enjoy his blog. Go, Zach!
