Flew in to Seattle yesterday morning w/ production manager/asstnt. producer extraordinaire Firtz Flad (also actor, he stars in Story # 4 in Date Number One - in the Air Quotes Woman segment), found Northwest Film Forum & my firend Keith's house, got lost for a while (of course, brand new city) but had a productive day. On the fun side this city & area is be-a-u-tiful. The Capital Hill area has a high quotent of indie & other potentially arts interested types walking around, lots of hot/cute/interesting looking women also, and the sun was out yesterday. Everyone at NWFF is supernice. The venue itself is awesome, ceilings like 20 feet tall. The two theaters that I am going to play in look good, comfy looking seats, big screens (for an indie venue). Glad I hooked up w/ NWFF.
It's 10 AM on Fri, the day of the first two Seattle shows (7 PM & 9:30 PM at the smaller theater @ NWFF). I am taping my movie out to DV tapes right now, did some audio work on the movie last night. It is going to play w/ out music (only music that appears in scenes - there are a couple of instances of that in Story 2) as it did in DC. I like the mood created by there being no score music to soften or heighten the feeling created by the images & the spoken words. But it is entirely possible that I will add some music to the movie in the near future. Will have to carefully try things out when I get back to DC/MD.
Oh tay, lots to do. I'll probably have more time later, on Sat & Sun, to attend to all my blogs & e-mails. Talk to everyone then. Will have pics & more detailed updates this weekend & early next week. Off to enjoy Seattle & prep for the shows tonight. Date Number One DIY distro mission is on baby!
