Red Carpet Screenings

If you're wondering how the Red Carpet Screenings event went, I'd have to say very well!
The format worked really well; after each movie was screened the director was invited down to be interviewed by Seb Hall who organised the event, and then questions were taken from the floor. Then, after all the movies have been shown a guest critic was invited down to give their view on each movie.
The venue layout was ideal for this with a Jonathon Ross/Jay Leno style stage laid out below the projection screen.
Mixing machinima with more conventional movies is always a bit worrying for me, because I'm never sure if the audience will take my movies seriously when compared to the other fare on offer. However, Seb is a naturally relaxed interviewer and sets his guests at ease instantly. I tend to just pretend I know what I'm talking about, and so far I think I've managed to get away with it (not long till I get found out though, I fear...)

A huge pat on the back for Seb Hall for pulling the screenings together - well done!

The date for the next Red Carpet Screening event has been announced - 03 November. I don't think I'll be able to go along because it clashes with the local Guy Fawkes fireworks, however I do hope to get along to future screenings.
