I was really worried that the DVD projection to a full-size theater screen would look horrible. I needn't have worried, it looked really nice. It played. People laughed at funny bits, clapped at the hero moment, and in general had a good time. What amazed me is that it played better on the theater screen than I've ever seen it. Things were different. The pacing seemed better, things seemed tighter.
There were flaws, certainly. Things that there was no time to fix that stick out to me big time now. But all forgivable. Knowledge for next time.
This is the first time I've seen my name in the credits on a real theater screen. I don't think I can adequately explain the degree of awesome that comes with that. And seeing Magic Marmot Studios on the screen as well, fantastic.
That was a serious high that I haven't felt since the days of improv.
Stuck around for the Best of the 48 Hour Film Festival. That was fun as well, particularly recognizing people that I knew in a significant number of the movies. Some really good stuff. Minneapolis had 85 teams, which was the third highest in the country. Lots of really talented people here.
Now I'm home, and crashing out.
Those of you who came, thanks so much. Those who couldn't but wanted to, I appreciate the support anyway. And those of you who decided that you'd really rather do other stuff, I wave my private parts at your aunties, you sons of a window dresser.
