The Roxie Theater

Last night was an exciting night for me. I got to see myself up on the big screen! I have seen myself once before (you can see me in one scene behind Helen Hunt in the film Bobby), but this time was a little different. I had a lead role in a short film that I mentioned earlier. The film, Last Counsel, was screened at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco last night! There were 23 films showing from the 24 Hour Film Race and some were quite good. I know this wasn't exactly an Oscar winning performance from me, but it's something!

I invited my mom and my seester to go see it with me. We took BART into the city and walked the 3 minutes to the theater. I waited not so patiently for the box office to open so we could pick up our tickets. I had already purchased three because I wanted to be prepared and then I found out that I had another two waiting there for me for free. Go figure. After we jumped into the line to get into the theater, I gave away two of the tickets because my friends weren't going to be able to make it. The guy I gave them to asked me if I had change because he wanted to pay me for them, but I told him he didn't have to, and he was extremely grateful and a little taken aback by the gesture. He gave the other ticket to his friend and they thanked me multiple times before heading towards the end of the line.

We planned our seating choice ahead of time and we were first to get inside, so we had our pick of the place. We sat towards the middle section and stayed to the right. I wanted to be able to make a quick exit afterward. At the end, everyone voted for up to four of their favorite films. We didn't stick around to hear the result and I certainly wasn't about to go up to the front to contribute on behalf of my team to the Q&A section of the night. I had enough anxiety just watching myself and hoping people clapped at the end of it (they did).

I submitted the film to IMDb earlier today, so hopefully I will have a credit listed on there soon instead of just my headshots and my resume. As long as all of the information is there, I don't see why it won't be! Just in case you missed the link above for the film, here's the actual video below!
