I must say this first. I was literally driving to the screening and stopped at a red light. Left was the way home and right was towards the event. After a mentally and physically exhausting week, I turned my blinker to go left. I sat there waiting for the light with my sluggish, battered eyes staring straight ahead. I was calculating the time I would need to prepare for a presentation the next day when my subconscious took over. My hand reached out and flipped the blinker to the right. With my last bit of energy mustering in my empty belly, I darted right and starting making my way to the screening.
I am glad I did.
I first saw Spencer pop up in my social spaces some time ago and have been following his site http://lightscameralists.com very closely. It’s not often that film bloggers pop up in Columbus so we began trying to make a connection. He is doing very well. :)
His ability to summon the multiple layers of Columbus’s film enthusiasts has started with a bang with his first (of many) screenings. Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope Screening was a multi-channel success with letters from a producer of the documentary and online write-ups including
the LA Times. Not to mention it was a well organized event that I am proud to be a part of. Not just because I also won a gift certificate, but because I get the feeling that the timing for bringing back screenings is perfect!
Columbus is behind blah blah blah… Cheers to Spencer and the crew at LightCameraLists.com for utilizing Facebook, twitter and the blogosphere to build the awareness. The brilliant idea to use kickstarter-esque TUGG to plant the idea into others heads was awesome. See the event post here: http://tugg.com/events/497#.T5xp8zJYtps #awesome
From the time I arrived, people began congregating and mentioning where they came from. One dude came from Auburn and said he had seen the invite online.
Thanks again for inviting our filmaholics and we are already preparing for the next!
