I’ve just returned from exhibiting at the Brigand Shorts Film Festival in downtown Chattanooga. While the day was a little dicey due to the weather, overall it was a nice event. Ben Todd and all the folks at Brigand Pictures worked long and hard to pull the event off as a prelude to their film opening for “Thick As Thieves,” which they produced here with no budget whatsoever. I did get a chance to meet and speak with several new folks… Chris Clark, for example. Chris heads the film production program at Bryan College, I’ll be doing a short lecture/seminar there on audio production this sememster. I also met with Michael Laney, Communications Chair at Lee University. I hope to speak there as well.
Spotty participation by several vendors hurt the festival a little, but overall I think it was very worthwhile for me (and the other participants) to be there.
The weather held until four o’clock, when I had to pack up and head home. With all the equipment, I couldn’t take a chance of it getting wet. There were a few drops of rain hitting the windshield as I was leaving, but I managed to get everything safely unloaded without getting wet.
