california extreme

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….

Best 5 Days of September

A few photos from the Pacific Pinball Expo, definitely my favorite five days of September!

Charlie Kuttner and I filmed the whole load in, an amazing 2 day transformation of an empty room to a pinball wonderland, and then of course I got to meet and talk to a lot of you, play pinball, see cast and crew members, eat donuts, and screen my films. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the show and to the amazing volunteers of the Pacific Pinball Museum who make the magic happen!
