Bangin’ first day…

After months of planning, after hours and hours of viewing, we have successfully launched the very first Snake Alley Festival of Film!!! What a blast! The turn out was amazing! And I think the filmmakers (who drove from as far away as New York and Montreal) felt supported. To us, that’s most important thing!!! 🙂 We want this to feel like a party that celebrates all your hard work and support you in anyway we can. Last night, while sitting in Moto’s Public House, listening to great music, I took a moment to look around, and I can honestly say, “I think we achieved that.”

Make movies my friends….

My love and hate of tech…

Love tech! Love to see the films on the big screen in all their glory for the very first time. Sometimes I find myself sitting in that dark room wondering how these films will effect people… Will they, in some way. feel enriched? Inspired? Offended? Or worse… Will they leave the theater, muttering under their breath, “it was okay”…

I hate that!! I would rather a person hate my film venomously, then say it was okay…

Slowly, I come out of my daze and focus on the task at hand. There’s a glitch. My tech guy scrambles to fix it. It won’t play. What do you mean, “it won’t play?” He shrugs, flips a button. A light flickers. I look up. And up on the screen is one of my personal favorites!!! I’m thinking this better play, cuz it’s brilliant!!!! It ends. I look over at my tech. He shrugs, then says, ” It was okay”.

There’s a lesson in there, somewhere, but right now I’m to angry to believe it…
