Screening fiasco

March 30th, 2009 ~ 9:47 pm

I did end up going to the screening on Friday, but it didn’t really turn out as I planned. First of all I hadn’t had time to eat anything but half a bagel that morning on set because I immediately had to haul ass to a callback that lasted the rest of the afternoon (and was stellar, but I digress) instead of staying for lunch. So then when I get home after rush hour I have a bunch of emails to check and such and then it’s basically time to go. So we go.

I figure 7 shorts under 10 minutes, I’ll be out a little past 9. But oh! The organizers decided to hold the audience hostage to watch a 40 minute meandering film about… ? It wasn’t part of the event that anyone knew about. They just put it up front for this captive audience. So after that I was hoping they might mix up the order from what it was on the ballot sheet, but they weren’t and our film would be last. I decided I should eat. I apologize to Russell and Susan and we go get food.

Turned out to be moot since the organizers weren’t so organized after all and either ran out of time or didn’t test the DVD before hand, but either way the club turned into a club and the film wasn’t even shown. Sadness! I’m sure it will later. This was only the first screening since he finished all the sound mastering stuff. I thought it was great when I saw it before, so I guess it’s even better now.
