Scenes From Cinequest, Day 6-7
Once the excitement died down after our screenings over the weekend, Matt and I were left to our own devices. Usually this a dangerous situation, but luckily there were plenty of other films and events to see. Cinequest does a really good job of keeping the parties/events coming at you, so you never get bored (Free food and beer does not hurt either). We also had a chance to do some more interviews and even walked over to the San Jose Tech Museum. They currently have an exhibition running (fittingly called Star Wars: The Exhibition) that has tons of costumes, props and models from Star Wars. You can even enter a life size replica Millennium Falcon Cockpit! Needless to say, we were all in.
I also took some time to visit the surrounding cities of San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Felton (near Santa Cruz) is home to the World Famous Bigfoot Museum, and I had to visit. Filled with awesome Bigfoot memorabilia and scientific facts it’s a wonder to behold. I spent time talking with the founder Mike and his assistant Tony, telling them about the Love In The Time Of Monsters and getting the facts straight about Bigfoot. They were excited we shot the film in Gasquet, CA, because that’s “real bigfoot country”. The map of confirmed Bigfoot sightings even had a mark right next to the Patrick Creek Lodge! It was a cool opportunity and I highly recommend you guys stop by when you can.
Tonight we’re getting geared up for the 3rd and final screening here at Cinequest. 9:15pm at the Cinema 12 Theaters, screen 10. If you haven’t had a chance to see the film yet, stop on by! All the screenings so far have been a blast, and this promises to be no different.
Here’s some more photos from the past few days:
