Screening Q&A’s

Finally, I bring to you ‘Screening Q&A’s!

Let me explain. I’ve been living in Los Angeles for almost 4 years now (Oct. 16th 2013 = 4 year anniversary). In that time I’ve been lucky enough to go to a lot of screenings and take advantage of some great opportunities to see special guests such as cast/crew and specifically Directors. Starting in the fall of 2012 I got an iPhone and realized I had a tool to actually record these events. I’m an avid commentary nerd, often ripping and syncing dvd comm tracks to my ipod/iphone to listen on the go or around the house. I love to hear information on projects directly from the people who worked on them and being able to re-listen to some of these great conversations was something I really wanted. So here it goes, I’ve been meaning to post these for a long time and here they are!

TECH: Let me also say that I’m a little lazy right now so I’m not going to be doing any editing or audio adjustments unless really needed. The majority of these should be pretty clear, but for the record these are iPhone recordings and may not always be the best quality so bear with me. PS: this is also a work in progress, so I’ll be adjusting the layout and stuff randomly trying to find the best way to organize it all. Files might not be loaded, it might be unorganized, etc.
