True / False = FalseMy 13 film marathon was a bust. I went up to Columbia on Friday afternoon, watched SICK: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF BOB FLANAGAN and THE HEART OF THE GAME (FUCK was sold out). After watching THE HEART OF THE GAME, I went to a filmmaker / passholder party and stood in the corner drinking beer... then Nicole called from the theater. There had been an accident - two accidents, in fact - that resulted in a reel falling off the projector during a movie.
Thankfully the reel wasn't able to fall all the way to the ground due to the recessed ceiling we built to accomodate the height of the projector. Had it not lodged itself against the wall, it would've fallen onto the sound rack and pulled the entire projector head along with it. Needless to say, it was the largest non-failure accident in our history. Nate did a great job getting the show back on the road (thanks Nate!), but I knew I still needed to come back.
I left early Saturday morning from Columbia and was back in Springfield before our first show. I spent the rest of the weekend at the theater, as per usual. Fun, huh?!
