Film Glorious Film

We recently had our 35mm print of our short film sent back to us from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There is something about that metal canister with small rectangular handle. The celluloid that it houses. We felt that with it's return the occasion should be marked in some way, that it was a cause for celebration. Not sure why it felt so important. Maybe it's just the knowledge that we have a 35mm print just waiting patiently to be screened...

Five hundred eyes and a snicker

Even though there has been a lot of talking about whether test screenings are beneficial or not - the one thing that stands out is the ability to continuously see the film through new eyes. If the room is filled with teenagers, than we become teenagers, If there is someone over 65 same thing. it truly enables you to put yourself in their mind set. some things that felt amazing all of a sudden are clunky. Other things that didn't work seem to soar.

And big reactions - bring them on. we want to see you jump when someone is shot, laugh out loud at something funny, and cross your arms when something makes you uncomfortable.
