The Board Shorts Film Festival last weekend (yah I’m a bit late in updating here, haha) was a blast. It was Jenna’s birthday too, so there was a bit of extra fun involved. The event was packed out. Apparently it sold out two days beforehand, and there was a wait list of over 100 people. Not bad at all, gotta hand it to Michelle and Liz for promoting the event so well.
I was really stoked to see a New York film in the festival this year. That, along with Chris Grant’s little bio pic on Danielle Burt were my two favorites of the bunch.
After the show as we were getting ready to leave, I saw Linda Benson outside. She gave me some really nice compliments on my work, and I was so humbled and stoked. She’s not one to throw around false praise. Plus, she is a legend!! So rad.
Party Mix was also selected to show in the San Diego Surf Film Festival in May!
Thanks to everyone for the support, and look for Party Mix to make the rounds on the internet very soon.
