Sunday the 20th happened to by my husband's birthday, but to his credit, he didn't mind that instead of throwing him a birthday party on that day, we threw it the next day so that I could go to a Stumptown Movie Maker's barbecue and watch the premiere of Delayed Justice, the short film I worked on back in July.
The barbecue was fun! Almost all the cast was there, and a we had a few of the crew and some folks from our Stumptown group there, besides. Our former Organizer, Marcus Eikenberry, was the host. It was Marcus's official going away party for our group, too, since he's moving out of state.
It has occurred to me I need to have a new organizational meetup for Stumptown, since I'm the new Organizer for the group and I know I'm going to need some help. Time to get crackin' on that...
Anyhoo, the premiere was great and I enjoyed watching how Craig put the edited version together. It's always fun to see how something I worked on turns out after editing and music and whatnot. Especially since my position in the crew wasn't involved in the filming or audio, I had no idea how it would look or sound. I found myself nervous! I don't know why. I guess for Craig's sake I was crossing my fingers that everything worked out well.
I didn't have anything to worry about. It was fine. He gave all of us who worked on it or were in the cast copies of the film, too.
I wonder if I'm going to be nervous like this for every film I'm ever involved in? I know I have been so far, especially my own baby, Prognosis.
One of the nice things about going to the barbecue, too, was the insistence of our hosts to take home leftovers. Mmmm. Steak. :)
