This is, I think, the longest delay between posts at Self-Reliant Film. Between the events at Virgina Tech and the preparation for a project of mine, well, what can I say? My attention has been elsewhere. Anyway, it's good to get back to the blog. Thanks, again, to all of you that privately emailed or publicly commented with words of support. On an unrelated(?) note, I just remembered that today marks the 15th anniversary of the "premiere" of my first film, a film called "Pure", which I made with a Super-8 film camera graciously loaned by Chris Cagle. The film screened for about twenty people in the living room of my friend Wade Guyton, who lived in the house next door to Chris.
I remember that the evening ended with various people singing along to the Xanadu soundtrack. Yesterday, my friend Alan sent me a link to this. Plus ça change, plus c'est la méme chose.
