Cinequest Day 5: Scenes from an Interview
I’ve lost my voice.
If that’s not a sign of a good time, I don’t know what is. As you could probably tell from Andy‘s great updates, Cinequest has been a bonanza of good times. Lots of awesome movies, tons of amazing people (filmmakers and volunteers alike), and generally positive vibes have led me to this frog voiced present.
Best of all, the reaction to Love in the Time of Monsters has surpassed expectations. In a fest full of fantastic films, it’s so very gratifying to see people’s faces light up when they talk about LitToM. I mean, we all liked the movie and thought it played well, but it means a whole lot more when strangers see it an love it. It’s been awesome.
Anyway, before my voice totally went, we did a couple of interviews that you can now find on the interwebs. The first posted (but second interview we did) was with Christopher Garcia for ‘Themed for your Pleasure”. It’s a pretty insightful 20 minute conversation with Andy and I, full of big geek references and sentimental prattling. It was really a lot of fun. You can find it here.
Our other interview (the first one, but posted second) was with our friends over at Fanboy Planet. Mike was able to join us for this one, so it has some different information in there to give you a little variety in your life. Also included in that podcast is an interview with the ever wonderful Neil Gaiman and the creative force behind Eternity: The Movie, the other big bombastic movie making waves this week. EDITED TO ADD: Also, duh, our friends the complete opposite side of the scale were there from the documentary Bite Size, chatting about that movie piece of cinema. It’s a pretty rad show.
And if that wasn’t enough for you (somehow), the guys also invited me to sit in with them as they talked about comics at the start of the show.
Come for LitToM, but stay for my massive comic nerdery; It’s not to be missed. Check it out here or on iTunes to listen at your leisure.
It’s been a crazy time so far and it’s only getting better. If you’re not following us on the Facebook, the twitter, or the youtube, you should so you can keep on the cutting edge of news coming out of the festival.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go get some more tea to soothe this throat of mine before the next party. Wish me luck!
