The film festival has been an absolute blast. I didn't get to see absolutely everyhing I wanted (there was so much going on) but I enjoyed everything I went to. My luggage is much heavier, weighted down with frightening volumes of forbidden tomes (some signed by the author), but softer as well, padded with the unnecessary volume of new T-shirts. I'm allready planning to attend next year if at all possible & I'm pretty sure Colin is as well if things go well. Until then there are some films I'll be searching for upon return of home that I didn't get to see, as well as plenty of business card web addresses to investigate. And also the search for the infamous "Elwood." Very tempting, but perhaps I should just wait to see it next year.
Across the street from our hotel is a second-hand store we checked out with nothing better to do. I found a couple of old magazine ads matted & ready for framing along with issue #6 of From Beyond the Unknown comic book. The title of which coincidentally incorporates the titles of two stories by H.P. Lovecraft. The comic is unintentionally silly & quite entertaining. It would be fun to dramatize the stories using the original illustrations. A project I've had on the back burner since I inherited my grandfather's comic collection some years ago.
Being at the film fest has naturally given me some ideas of short films I'd like to create. It will be something to think on & work out during the long journey home. That, my stack of new books & my tired butt.
