I feel a bit like Kevin Costner in the Big Chill (as in, he's not in there). Nina Metz wrote a very nice article that was in the Tribune yesterday about the Fast Forward Film Fest and similar events. I answered an extensive email interview for her for the article, but all my comments that she put in the article got snip-snipped by her editor. She did plug the combo Neutrino show in a side bar, though.
Speaking of that show, it was a hoot. The 7 pm show was great, with both groups doing fine work. For the 9 pm show we abandoned our usual narrative forms, mixed the actors and crews up between cities, and produced 21 distinct short films. People did lots of keeer-aze and experimental stuff -- from incredible camera work from Adam Devlin-Brown to people just getting naked. Oh, and I got a tattoo. In the show.
