Tohubohu Rides Again... Maybe

Well, this past weekend’s Tohubohu birthday party project was a hoot — although the biggest lesson the girls learned was that moviemaking isn’t nearly as glamorous and exciting as TV makes it look. For the most part, you’re sitting around and waiting. Or doing the same thing repeatedly (though we certainly tried to minimize that for this group). We’ll see how it looks once I edit it all together (we did do a couple of pickup shots with my daughters on Sunday, just to cover ourselves a bit).

As for the Baltimore edition of the 48 Hour Film Project, still no word as to whether we’re in or not. We did end up signing up for the random entry drawing, though at first it looked like they’d closed the signups a bit early (according to Mark Ruppert, it was due to a website glitch, and he assured me we’d be placed in the drawing). So now we’re just waiting. And unfortunately, I have to jet off to Atlanta for another video shoot in about 20 minutes, so I may not know for a while.

I’ll try to post notice as soon as I hear, but no promises as to the timeliness (though if anyone else is watching, you could post a comment here as well).

Enough with all this tomfoolery...

Where's your reaction to STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH??????????

Alas, my geek credentials are in serious jeopardy.

I haven't seen it yet.

Don't get me wrong, I'd like to, but there haven't been any large-group outings, or other inspired colleagues anxious to drop everything and head out.

I remember doing a whole series of speculative storyboards on the Vader/Kenobi battle back around the time when Jedi came out (yes, I had a lot of time on my hands), and I'd like to see how my visions (or what I remember of them) compare. I do remember my old compadre (and fellow Star Wars geek) Tim deriding me for drawing the Jedi-era shuttlecraft in my doodles, arguing that, of course, it wouldn't have been around. Lo and behold, Lucas retroactively added it to Empire and the original Star Wars (well, a variant of it anyway), and sure enough, there's a very familiar-looking craft in the previews...

So there, buddy!

Once I'm able to coordinate a babysitter (we're not planning to take the kids to this one), Pam and I will probably manage to get out to see it. And, given my inability to shut up about anything, I'm sure I'll have something to say.

But until then, you'll just have to wait.
