Waterfront Film Festival

I finally got the video of the Festival done. The big problem with this kind of video is that we never begin with the end in mind (oh, good podcast topic).

Here it is

It’s about 50 Megs and it’s a .mov file (i.e. Quicktime). I learned my lesson with that last one. You can’t play it on an iPod, but I think I’m the only one doing that anyway.

The Waterfront delay.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m working on getting the video from Waterfront film festival together. It’s taking me a little longer then I thought, there’s more footage then I anticipated. It’s good stuff, but might take a while.

Just wanted to give you an update, as we haven’t had a podcast in a while, which I’m hoping we’ll take care of this week as well.

Look, it’s a new look

We’ve made a switch for the site. We’re using Word Press for the blog. We wanted to try something new, and blogger was down one too many times.

Don’t worry, all the comments are still there. Let us know what you think about the new blog.

Almost Famous

Dan and I hit the Waterfront Film Festival this past weekend. It was an incredible festival this year and jam packed to boot. We caught three shows which included six short films , In Memorium, and The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang.

The short films was fun for the fact that the only place you’ll ever get to enjoy them is at a film festival. They just don’t show up anywhere else. The two shows that really stuck out in my mind was the animated Dear Sweet Emma and The Method.

The showing of Sasquatch was the Midwest premiere and it was a lot of fun. If you’re an 80s kid then you’ll like this show a lot. If you’re an 80s kid and an dork you’ll LOVE this show. We had a short meet and greet with the writer/director, two of the producers and two of the lead actors after the show as well. Dan has the footage and eventually we’ll get a killer docu-short from him so you can experience what it was like to be there.

For now though, y’all will have to suffice with a picture posted up no the Holland Sentinel website. We’re famous…almost.

And for anyone that is interested (and I’m not sure why you would be). We’ve got video from Geekfest 06a.

The Video
Sorry about the m4v extension, it’s quicktime. I wanted to be sure it was playable on an iPod. Originally I was going to make it part of the feed, but why torture people unnecessarily. I may be ulgy, but I’m not cruel.
