Sarasota 2009 | Opening Night

A small respite before we open the festival tonight. The AP has the story we're proud of. Looks like we'll have a full 1700+ in attendance.

I had a chance to meet the team from The Messenger last night and you couldn't find a nicer group of people. Tech check this afternoon (60 foot screen in 35mm Cinemascope glory... oohh la la) and we're off and running. We've been working since September to get here and now that we've arrived, I am truly ready to roll. I will try to post more as the week goes on, as I want to shed some light on our 2009 Honoree, Bill Paxton. I will also be trying to snap some photos with the iPhone and get them up here.

Off and running... more soon!
