Now that we're finished with "Friends Like Mine", we thought that this past week would be a great time to celebrate our artistic collaboration with those that made it all possible! For our cast, crew and their special guests, we held a private red carpet premiere party at the Embassy Suites at Cobb Galleria. The evening started with drinks and photos by Natin Photography, and lead into the screening of the film. Mind you, this is the very first time that anyone has been allowed to see the film, despite pleas from multiple cast members and friends, we wanted everyone to see it together for the first time. As a director, it was so exciting to see everyone's reaction. We had a brief Q&A after the screening, which turned into more of a discussion about the film and how each person was affected. I really couldn't ask for more out of this project than to have the story affect people in a
personal way. Mission accomplished. Following the Q&A, we watched back the film one more time, but with open discussion throughout. I've never been to a screening like that, but found it very fun. I'd definitely recommend that to anyone who does a premiere for a short (not a feature.. most people won't want to sit through nearly 4 hours of anything). We were able to answer questions about particular shots, why we made the choices we did, and what inspired different aspects of the film, as well as call attention to the background talent, favorite moments the actors created and get a little goofy. All in all, the night was an absolute success! THANK YOU to every single person involved in the production of "Friends Like Mine". This was a very successful team effort that
required a dedicated, talented group of people. Also, a huge thank you goes to Dale for helping put together the event, Natin for taking care of our photography and to Georgia Carpet Recovery for providing our red carpet.
Now, we wait for film festival acceptances! We'll be announcing acceptances as they come on our Scattered Films facebook page, so be sure to "like" it so you can stay up-to-date and have the chance to see it for yourself when it comes to a festival near you! Hope to see you there!
I would simply like to share my love for life with you-- be it inspirational music, photography, written word, joyous works by local artists, theatre and independent films, travel, community outreach projects, silly musings and adventures, or little things I've learned along the way. All categories are open for discussion! If there's something you'd like to hear more about, just ask!
