Today was the world premier of our film Raising The Barat the GI Film Festival. My teammates and I sat in eager anticipation as one by one the other films were shown, and the time slot for our film approached. How would the audience react? Would they like it? We held our breath as the film before ours ended and then there on the big screen, in the Disney Theater, we saw the opening scene of Jason - our main character.

Today was the first day of the G.I. - as in GI-Joe, not Gastro-Intestinal - Film Festival (GIFF). I attended a Filmmaker's bootcamp discussion panel earlier that included industry professionals. Among them was Michael Dorn (Star Trek the Next Generation's Mr. Worf) - If I'd have met him on the street I would have never identified him. Then I had a late lunch in the studio commissary and walked around the lot. I couldn''t go in buildings where they are actually filming, but it was still pretty cool. I'm really terrible at identifying celebrities - so I don't try.

I departed Dupont Circle today on my way out to LA for two conferences: the GI Film Festival and World Animation and VFX Summit. I'm very excited to be attending the premier of our film Raising The Bar. Which will screen Saturday Morning at the festival.
