Outfest, part 2
A few years ago, 2008 to be exact, a dear friend of mine passed away. Another dear friend sent me 10 tickets to Outfest, as it was coinciding with the event, and he thought it would be a good way to deal with grief. Having something to do is certainly helpful. I was introduced into a whole world I didn't know.
I think since then I've gone most years, and it looks like I've written about it a fair amount. This year, though, my first film will be showing. I'm aware now of how much goes into making a film, even a short. I'm a little nervous about how it will be received. Frankly, aside from some short plays I've written, I'm used to performing other people's work. Most of my writing is on this blog, so it's not like I feel like I'm playing to an audience. This theater has a 600 seat capacity. Yikes.
We screen this Sunday night at 9. The festival is exciting, with many parties, breakfast, lunches, all kinds of things. I'm being open to whatever happens, and keeping a good attitude. Here we go!
