Last night, I got on a red eye to New York to show the film to executive producers as well as a reporter from the Globe and Mail. I had to hand carry the film back and forth as a security precaution. Because of piracy concerns, the few copies of the film that exist are kept under watchful eye. Today, that watchful eye is me. I’ve been checking my backpack every ten minutes to make sure the Digibeta is still there.
Everyone seemed to be thrilled by the screening. After, I went for lunch with the reporter. He’s doing a piece on my father and I. Doing an interview always makes me feel like a tool. You’re just talking about yourself on end. And there’s always a concern that the journalist would like nothing better than to reveal your utter toolness.
However, this guy seemed very nice and I’m hoping for a fun article. We’ll see when I get to Toronto. Just to give you an idea of my travel schedule… I arrived in NY at 8:15 this morning. I’m now flying home. My flight took off at 4:25pm. It was an eight hour trip to New York.
Okay, good. The Digibeta is still in my backpack.
I keep thinking about Run Lola Run when the lead character leaves the bag of money on the train. De taj! De taj!
