This weekend on Sunday July 14 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM I’ll be at California Extreme in Santa Clara, CA, screening both Pinball Donut Girl and Wade Krause: Pinball Artist films.  I think Wade will be there too, and I’m hoping other cast and crew will join us as well.

and I’ll bring DVDs!

If you would like me to bring your DVD to you personally at CAX rather than shipping, please send me a note or fb me or leave a comment here to let me know.  Hope to see you at the show!

Pittsburgh Pinball Donut Girl this weekend

anna-newman-pittsburgh-skylineThis weekend June 15-16 I’ll be in Pittsburgh for the screening of Pinball Donut Girl at the Pittsburgh Independent Film Festival. When I talked to Ron Quigley who runs the festival (and also created this cool dolly), he was surprised I would be able to come out. I explained that Pittsburgh was key to making Pinball Donut Girl happen, and also Wade Krause: Pinball Artist. I have to go!

pittsburgh-independent-ffPinball Donut Girl is playing on Saturday at 4:30 PM along with a lot of other cool films.  Get your tickets and come join the fun!

Pittsburgh is also the home of artist Brian Holderman (below with Wade).

DVD-Pinball-Donut-GirlI bet you’ve caught on already — the first DVD press is going to be a double featurette.  So those of you who donated at that level will be getting both films! Yay!

If you can’t make Pittsburgh this weekend, Pinball Donut Girl will also be showing at Gen Con in Indianapolis, IN in August.  I heard a rumor Jeri Ellsworth might be attending….

Mark got to play Cactus Canyon Continued — a CC game running with P-ROC, a cool board that lets you mod pinball games via a pc over usb.  Mark reports:

“In our repair room, we have a Cactus Canyon, running custom software on a P-ROC controller and a PC. The new custom version, dubbed Cactus Canyon Continued, is programmed and overlaid on top of the original. The pic shows the CCC software creator on the left, and the P-ROC hardware guys, center and right.”

“The P-ROC version has many new features, including a mode called Drunk Multiball, best played by crossing your arms, since the flipper buttons are reversed.”
