Johnnie Ray Experts Sought
For a feature documentary currently in production I am seeking on-camera interview subjects in Los Angeles and/or Nashville who can be considered experts on the life and career of former pop crooner Johnnie Ray. No compensation but the film will be screened on the festival circuit so exposure is guaranteed.
Please — no fans. We need credentialed experts, meaning you are either an academic in pop culture, a published author, etc. The film is not about Ray but his story is integral to the piece, particularly any stories related to his recording of “Just Walkin in the Rain.”
8 Making Millions: [T]he myth persists that published writers are wealthy people. Not counting JK Rowlings, Stephen King, and Danielle Steele, that is.
8 Feel the love: The rejection letters ranged from the formulaic "not right for me" to "fuck off and die” Ouch!
8 Is it possible that people are reading (among other activities;) instead of going to the movies? Good vibrations in the publishing industry
8 Fun at picnics, or on dull dates, not to mention necessary should you find yourself stranded in the wilderness: Starting a fire with a Coke can and a chocolate bar.
And now without further ado ...
I never did see that movie.
