I am the best... officially. No really, offically the best

Sorry I haven't been around much. This film caper... It's a never ending series of heart breaking problems that must be solved two minutes before they happen. I'm not sure why any of us do it.

For the awards of course! Not really. Clemency and Talisker's showing at the film festival was less than auspicious. We had two issues happen outside our control that couldn't be fixed before the screening. The first being that our negative 'somehow' got dirty which resulted in bright white speckles all over our beautiful dark interiors. Some of it was like a fireworks display. The second being that our Telecine House provided us with a file in the wrong aspect ratio which made the film look like crap for it's showing. Not to worry, both problems will be fixed for the next screening.

But of course, that didn't stand in the way of our film receiving recognition, we managed to pick up Best Editor, Best Sound Designer and of course... Best Producer! Because as it says in the title, out of 51 films in competition, I'm the Best! I was also voted Least Humble! ;)

Seriously though, my reward really is to see the absolute best film up on the screen and although I was a little disappointed with its showing the feedback we received was very complementary indeed.

As for feedback being great, we had another film in the festival called Earth Wind Fire Advertising which was an experimental piece created by twelve of us SFS guys, edited by myself to the awesome tune Smoke and Oil by our good friend (fiend) Ticharu. Experimental films are often ignored by audiences as they're a little too abstract for them. But the feedback was really remarkable. We had dozens of people approach us after the screening all with high praise and a multitude of questions as to how it had been made. Really was a fantastic screening, and there's a good chance we'll see it in another festival in a couple of months! Yeah!

Anyway, better hop... still more to do and work to catch up on. Hope everyone out there is doing great.

Proof that I'm the Best...

Oh Ces, I'm not the best. I'm 'officially the best'. There's a difference there somewhere... not sure what that is though...

I'm back for one week, then, a new semester. Blarg!

Actually, it's the people who worked the film that rock. Every single person who tried their best to get the desired results, making it a wonderful film to work on, is the real reason I got the award. They ROCK!

Oh, and thanks.

You will never see it... NEEEEEEVER... Okay, you will. Need to fix up a few bibs and bobs and then I'll send you a DVD copy. Then after we've exhausted the festival thing then it will come up online.

Cool! Yeah, I figured it wouldn't be online till after the festival, I'm just hyped!

Once you put the video online I'll link the song to it.

I was thinking I would try to get it on one of the local music video type shows... but it contains advertising material so I don't know if it will meet broadcast standards.

But it is super cool!

Congratulations!
Ever since I saw "Whirligig" way back when... I knew you had it in you to succeed. It's that element of professionalism that you exude(?)!

I feel that I -- and not just me, but the whole community... would benefit from seeing this film you claim has won the hearts and minds of the abstractionists and firework-lovers alike.

Congratulations, you must be very proud. Are you a director or camera man? Or both?

La vida es esto. Prestémosle atención a los
detalles. Al calorcito humeante del pis, a sacar la basura, a viajar apretados
en colectivo. Si no disfrutamos eso, ¿qué nos queda?

Congratulations on your delicious slice of sweet, sweet recognition.

Don't underestimate an unintentional fireworks display, though. This may actually increase the appeal of the movie.

The trick to avoiding those annoying white speckles on the picture, though, is this: Put the film away. Then whip out your bag of big movie producer blow. Never the other way around. You're welcome.

Good Golly Miss Molly! Congratulations! This is very exciting indeed. You look very officially great to be sure. Officially that is. Of course.

Sending hugs and ripe bananas,
