So we didn’t make it into SXSW. According to the rejection letter, we just didn’t make the final cut. This may be a simple case of creative wording, but I like to take it at face value, that we didn’t make the FINAL cut. I also like to think that it was between us and Spike Lee and that we really gave Spike a run for his money. Little known fact: Spike Lee is a whiz with a Kitchen Aid and convection oven and he makes a mean éclair. Me, I squeeze a tube with a smiling Quaker on the side and cookie dough comes out. Coincidence? I think there are bigger things at work here.
Now we wait and see how things go with the next round of submissions.
Either way, MRR is picture locked (for now) and aside from adjusting a few levels and inserting a few cues (when they’re done) audio is nearly complete too.
It’s about time too. I’m trying to ease the transition from MRR to my next film. Won’t say much now, but I’m really excited about it. Kirsten and I are working on the script and doing some research. Tabby, producer of People Of Earth, is coming to Seattle to produce, and she’s even bringing her assistant, Deep.
Anyone have an HVX that they’re willing to rent for cheap?
