A very full and enthusiastic house turned the world premiere into a wild success. Technically, everything went off without a hitch. I was impressed with the great picture and sound quality; the new Optoma HD20 DLP projector delivered in spades! It was great to see so many new faces and reconnect with those who I have come to know over the years through various film projects and paratheatre labs.
An ecstatic night!
Last night also launched the film's west coast tour which moves across the bay to San Francisco in March, San Jose and L.A. (April) and then up to Sacramento, Portland, Seattle (May) and points in between. The tour and screening schedule is now posted at: http://www.verticalpool.com/fallingtimes.html
Over the next several months during the tour, I will be taking notes and scripting the screenplay for my next film based on a short story by Swedish writer Carl Abrahamsson (that I recently obtained the rights to use). Compared to all the twists and turns of the more complex "FALLING UPWARDS", this will be a much smaller, simpler and more personal film. I hope to cast it in early summer and shoot it in late summer.
