left coast

After a long drive up much of the California coast yesterday we made it to the Pacific Film Archives  in Berkeley California! The drive was pretty amazing- cliffs, ocean, pelican flocks, palm trees, a spectacular yet 
terrifying forest fire racing up the side of a hill- I have a feeling the drive back down to L.A. will be just as gorgeous (hopefully minus the fire of course)! 

The screening was good! A nice sized crowd of film enthusiasts & people who had seen the sculpture  over at the Berkeley Art Museum. Every screening I am present at is terrifying! Right before the lights dim there is a panicked feeling that everyone is going to leave or start throwing tomatoes or hiss at the screen. I think I just need to remind myself that some people will like the film and some won't and every screening will have both! And that we will probably always have a friend or two at each screening that will make us feel good regardless! Next up, some down time (YAY!) in California followed by the June 26th Live Screening at Roof Top Films in NYC!
