Two Premieres in a Day

This past Sunday, 5 April 2009, short film Fate Scores had two premieres!  (You may recall that I worked as AD on this project and was the soprano in the premiere recording of the original score.) 

The world premiere took place Sunday afternoon at the Wisconsin Film Festival.  Aaron Howland, our director of photography and editor, represented well, taking a variety of questions from the sold-out audience.  Fate Scores was really well-received, with the audience laughing at all the right moments and appreciating the the humor and tenderness captured in the story.

That same afternoon, I was at SENE, the Southeast New England Film, Music and Arts Festival, where Fate Scores had its New England premiere in an afternoon session of short films.  As in Wisconsin, it was well-received with people chuckling and laughing at the story.  As the official filmmaking representative, I was on hand for the Q&A session where Fate Scores actually took the most questions.  People wondered what the inspiration for the film was, what kind of sandwich is eaten and what flavor the ice cream is, among other things.  (There were no questions about the pickle.)

As crazy at it sounds, I had not seen the final film edited with the score we recorded!  I'd only seen it with the substitute MIDI track and I must say I was quite pleased with the outcome.  fALATIMI highlights some nice aspects of the visual story and enhances the viewing experience. 

If you didn't get a chance to see Fate Scores at one of these screenings, there are two more opportunities coming up:

Saturday, 25 April 2009: Fate Scores screens at the Boston International Film Festival as part of Session 37, from 6:00-7:50 PM at the Loews Theatre/AMC Boston Common.

Saturday, 25 April 2009: Fate Scores will be shown at On Location: Memphis International Film Festival at 12:45 PM as part of the Shorts 2 program at Malco Ridgeway Four.
