Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it helps when your name is Brian De Palma – that is Brian J. De Palma.
The independent filmmaker was at the American Film Market 2011 pre-selling his film ESCAPING THE RUSH and says that having a similar name to CARRIE director Brian De Palma hasn’t totally hurt him over the years.
“It sometimes gets people on the phone or they think it’s him joking around,” says De Palma. “I don’t know if it hurts or helps at all – it’s just a talking point sometimes.”
Ten minutes of ESCAPING THE RUSH is complete and it stars Brian Bosworth and Gary Busey, and De Palma says being at the AFM has helped to get the word out.
“I’ve gone every year the last several years,” he says. “I’m just here trying to get people to the website and look at the opening 10 minutes. We have the script, budget, business plan, location and photos.”
