(Fade to Black)
“Here. We. Go.”
And with those words spoken four trailers played followed by the first rough cut version of Rising Star the Movie at The Mark Twain House & Museum on Friday 02/25/11 to a sold out house.
I was able to record 6 minutes of footage before things got under way.
Watching it again I found was able to feel the energy in the room as though I were still sitting in the room and hope you can get a sense of what it was like if you couldn’t be there.
A few snippets about the evening:
It was an amazing evening. Amazing! I’m still reeling from the fact that we shot Rising Star in October and screened an 87 minute rough cut version of the film last night. If you’re counting, that’s only four (4) months from principal photography to screening a rough cut. Wow.
PS – Sorry about the shaky footage.
