I just returned from our weekend at the Austin Film Festival. The two screenings of Some Analog Lines went really well; the Animated Shorts program was really well put together, and it was wonderful to see my film preceeding them. A lot of people came up to me over the course of the weekend to ask me about it, which was a good sign. And a programmer from some big shorts festival in Japan asked me to send him a copy, which was cool.
The other highlights of the weekend included spending time with our friends Marc and Rachel (whose apartment we crashed at); enjoying the potent combination of a steadily dropping temperature and lots of free gin; hanging out briefly with Bryan Poyser and Jake Vaughan, both of whom we randomly ran into on separate occasions at the Hideout; chatting with Kelly and the rest of the awesome festival staff; reintroducing myself to James V. Hart, the screenwriter of Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula, who actually remembered the details of our first meeting seven or eight years ago; leaving the festival altogether to go see Marie Antoinette, which I loved; and getting home two hours ago.
