Saulsilito Film Festival - Aug 22 sat @ 7pm

Haven't checked in a while, the HP screening was amazing. I had such an awesome time and met so many great people. It was really cool to see former counselors of mine such as Daren Anixter and Adam Boehm. Both said that they thought my portrayal of me in the film (the animated dude) was completely false. They remember as a quality athlete. Impressions of ourselves are often different than reality. It was cool to hear them say that.

It was also amazing to have old timer Ojibwa guys come up to me after the screening with tears in their eyes telling me how much they loved the film. What an experience. I'll never forget it. I also met Harold Ramis in the lobby of the theatre and gave him a copy of the film. If you see him, tell him to watch it and email me.

By the way, if you live in California, come out to this screening of the film:
Aug 22 sat @ 7pm, film will be playing at the Saulsilito FIlm Festival.
Email me if you are coming so we can grab a beer/coffee/soda.

New Blogger Review & Student Academy Update

I didn't make it to the final round of the student academy awards. Here's how I found out. My mom called. She said she had some bad news. I knew they were announcing the awards this week and I figured she found out. Now I thought she was going to trick me into thinking I had lost but really tell me I had won. That is very like her. But that is not what happened. She really did have bad news, I didn't make it to the next round. That's totally fine although it would have been nice to go to LA for a week and feel important.

In other news, another blogger wrote a review of the film, enjoy:

Student Academy Awards - I won, kind of

About two weeks ago I was told that 'Win or Lose' was selected as a student academy award semi-finalist. Out of something like over 100 films, 'Win or Lose' would be competing with 3 other films to go onto the next round. These films screened yesterday at a theater in midtown at 3 pm. So I sat through the top 4 student documentaries chosen in our region. One was my film, one was about people who dance with wheel chairs, one about sick kids waiting for organs, one about some island some where...ummmmm, to be honest, I thought they were just OK. 2 of the 3 were not character driven and were kind of boring. The one that was character driven was about sick kids and played like a medical educational video: I had trouble watching it. By the time my film went on, the judge next to me was sleeping and about 15 people had cleared the room. As you could imagine, 'Win or Lose' did not play great. There was a group of dudes behind me that laughed at every joke but besides them, the crowd was tough. I was nervous.

Then I went for a run and then sat through the narrative category. Now here there was some really solid films in the narrative category including The Lone Star State, Mochi and Without You, or was it With You.....whatever, they were good films. The Lone Star State was one of the best student films I ever saw. The other two films were by Columbia University students and were really solid.

The narrative section ends and we all go upstairs for a cocktail hour and food. This is where the announcing of the winners will take place. Besides being hors d'oeuvres & red wine there was a stage with a 9 foot plastic academy award statue. So when they finally announce the winners, the announce Win or Lose along with 3 other docs. Everyone was told they could say a speech but most people just said thanks and walked off the stage. They announced the narrative section and neither Lone Star or Mochi won, I was kind of floored but it just reinforced what I always thought about art. It is really hard to judge.

There are still 2 more rounds. 9 films competing in the doc section, 3 will be chosen to go onto to the finals. I'll keep you updated.
