Let's Go to the Movies!

The panel that Brent was on about soundtracking film was pretty interesting I thought. The whole gang seemed to be coming from completely different angles on the subject which really led to me thinking about the process of filmmaking, and even the nature of creativity in general- nice work guys! One of the best parts of the panel was that it took place inside of this enormous multiplex theater complex! I can't help but love the spectacle of new moviehouses! The lights! The noises! The smells! It's all so overwhelming and otherworldly that just the theater is like it's own pre-film experience-it's great! Even better was that Brent was showing clips at the panel, which took place in a giant theater, so we got to go into the projection labryinth of the multiplex! WHAT!?!?

So awesome! Dozens of projectors beaming out to hundreds of audience members, buzzing and flickering, so cool! Also cool was seeing pieces of Gravity in a place like this with a huge sound and a huge image making me, literally, see the film unlike ever before! I guess that is another great/unique thing about this fest, being able to see rare or different films that one wouldn't normally see in this type of setting. If only there were more movies I wanted to see playing in theaters like this all the time!
