For much of the past 14 months I've been on the road with my film. And with this past weekend's sojourn to my old Missouri stomping grounds, that traveling is now starting to draw to a close. With that, I realized that there have been a whole flock of photos that I never got around to posting from the past five months on the road - including pictures from our Seattle premiere in May, our screening at the Atlantic Film Festival in Nova Scotia, our US theatrical premiere in New York as well as screenings in Philadelphia and the aforementioned Missouri. So, with much (or little) fanfare, here's a recap of some of the past five months, starting with Seattle on June 2:
Moving on to St. Louis on July 22, when we did an advance screening at the Cinema St Louis Filmmakers Showcase:
Skip forward nearly two months to my short visit up to Nova Scotia for our screening at the Atlantic Film Festival on September 18:
Just a couple weeks later I was back on the east coast and in New York City for the premiere of my film at the IFC Center (where it's still playing, FYI, on the weekends).
Woodstock Film Fest programmer (and frequent indieWIRE contributor) Michael Lerman, filmmaker/blogger Michael Tully (SILVER JEW), filmmaker Paul Lovelace (BORN TO LOSE) and producer Jessica Wolfson (CRAZY SEXY CANCER and more) react to some post-party karaoke action.
Two nights later in Los Angeles:
Filmmaker Dave Mendel, About A Son producer Shirley Moyers, About A Son cinematographer Wyatt Troll, About A Son sound editor Kyle Schember, yours truly and filmmaker Gabe Fleming at the LA post-premiere party.
Two weeks later, I was in Philadelphia...
Then back to Manhattan the next night for a performance by Who Shot Hollywood - four 11 to 13 year old boys from Massachusetts who sound a bit like Supergrass - at CMJ.
Finally, earlier this week at the Moxie Cinema in Springfield, Missouri...
And with that I got back to Los Angeles (after a detour to Branson, MO, about which I hope to have more to say at a later date) for a week of catching up before I head this Wednesday to Denver for the fest there. Whew. I've exhausted myself.
But thanks, as always, to all the friends who hung out with me along this journey - from September of 2006 to the present. You are swell.
