Ha! The screening will be...whenever I scrape together enough cash to shoot it! I'm not expecting anyone to write me a check on the spot at this festival, but I've heard great things about the networking parties, so perhaps I can get some financial help. Regardless, my intention after the fest is to shoot 2 key scenes from the script, edit them beautifully, and put them up on my website as a "teaser", of sorts. My artist buddies have been incredibly helpful, and have already managed to secure a couple of great options for me for my DP (director of photography) and young eager beaver fresh-out-of-film-school lighting and crew people, who'd be willing to work for free to get the experience on their respective resumes. It will take some serious planning on my part, and a bit of luck, but I am confident that I will be able to make this happen over the next year. In the meantime, I've got a fresh idea bouncing around in my head for a new story... :)

Yes, I do! But I won't issue a casting notice until I have secured my main crew and have mapped out my budget...stay tuned... :)

I'm baaaaa-aaaack!
Ok, so the Festival was amazing. I met writers, movie-makers and musicians from all over the world. The people who won for their movies from China and Kazakhstan couldn't get visas, so the Washington ambassadors for each country flew in to accept the awards on their behalf, and wore their full ceremonial regalia. I met agents and Hollywood producers - gave out a ton of business cards and collected quite a few as well. Lots of people asked for my script, and I got lots of "send me whatever else you're working on - this is great!" so that was encouraging. I ate my body weight in food - who knew Boulder, CO was a haven for foodies?? The restaurants were superb, and there were tons of them. Partied like I was back in college - that, combined with the 6000' of altitude meant I was pretty much buzzed the entire weekend. Ha! I took a bunch of seminars and watched indie movies until my eyeballs were ready to fall out. Overall the quality of the work was very high. I saw music videos, animation, avant-garde films, documentaries, dramas, comedies, shorts and feature length movies. The variety was just astonishing.

I'm so glad that I went. I accomplished exactly what I'd set out to do: I made solid connections with people who will be able to help me get my current movie off the ground and who are very receptive to looking at my upcoming work, and I expanded my network of like-minded artists. I'm completely pumped!! I got home late Tuesday, and after being attacked (in a good way) by my joyous 50 pound bowling ball of a bulldog, I dove right back into the sci-fi book I'm writing. Nothing like being in that kind of environment to get the creative juices flowing...

I did take some pictures, but honestly I was so busy talking (selling?) that I didn't really make time to take very many. I will go through what I have and see if I have anything interesting... :)

I FEEL SO GOOD!!! I swear, I've been doing the Snoopy happy dance for days...

Hi!!! Your speech is so exiting that I've forgot all for a while borrowing a bit your great mood :P
I guess admins should add new smile icon with you more than happiest smile to the forum :-D

uphillclimb, one day I hope you will be a famous writer (and introduce me to a director for a role in a sci-fi movie, ha ha)
