Simply Smitten

Stacy and I spent the evening with Lucas over at 501 Post dumping our film to HD and creating a few clips for press and the SXSW website. I didn't get to bed until almost 1am, way past my usual 10pm bedtime.

My day job has been keeping me pretty busy. Working through lunches kind of busy. I might have to come in over the weekend to finish up. We have this big workshop on Monday that I'm co-organizing. I've been dreaming a lot lately about a life without a day job.

We're gearing up to do a bunch of flyering over the weekend. Despite the huge undertaking of flyering a city, I kind of like it. It's nice stopping into places I rarely go, like Austin Books or Encore Video.

I did an interview this morning for ME Television. Katie joined me. She was so cute about our interviewer Bobby Bones. I have no idea who he is, but she was simply smitten. He's a radio personality or something like that. All of her friends listen to his show.

Hey Kat,

Do you run into John "Reel Paradise" Pierson or family over there in Austin? I liked their doc, kind of weird & interesting, saw it once last year, maybe I'll watch it again next winter or so.

Have you read John's book, Sujewa? It's pretty awesome.

Hey El DVD,

Yeah, I read J.P's book a long time ago, even met him when he was in this area for a book signing in the 90's.

I liked John's account of the the moment of our field's (the modern US indie film scene) birth/maturity: Stranger Than Paradise screening in NYC before heading off to the Cannes '84 competition.

On a more Kat C. related note, looking forward to seeing Bridges, & also Cicadas (I've heard about it, have not seen it yet).

Actually, it might have been Cannes '83 that Stranger competed in.

There was a rumor Pierson was going to start repping films again... don't know if he is or not though. Anyone know?

I've met him and Janet (his wife) on several occasions (in Austin and Dallas) and even tried to get him to rep my first film way back in 1998 - with no success of course! :) I also enjoyed his book.
