Leonardo, Part II

Well, it's true, Leonardo went down in flames, at least in the realm of Screen Wars. Dealt a crushing blow in the first round of the Drama competition. Really, quite disappointing, based on the effort that went in to this film. The audience vote is a tough one to figure out.

We'll just have to look forward to the jury awards for some recognition. Now that all nine films have aired, it is safe to say that Marco has a great chance to take the Best Actor award home.

Don't be surprised if Leonardo II has him in a church with a tommy gun.

What!?

I have been following your blog for a while now. I first saw josh on the pana3ccdusers board where he mentioned he lives in phoenix. I have been seeing your stuff in the screenwars comp for a while now, and leonardo was one of your best films.

The film that beat you was not the worst but I definatley thought yours was best that round. What really worries me tho is the 2nd round voting. The worst film did win there. We are submitting our entry into the horror genre competition today and I just hope the "voting public" has more sense going forward.

Anywho, keep up the good work guys and maybe we will meet at the horror mixer...assuming ours makes it in at all. This will be the most participated genre yet. I heard there have been over 30 entries.

Gregg,

Good to hear from you. If you haven't been to a mixer yet, it might be worth it to go to the Drama mixer next Monday, because it's always a fun time. I'm out of town, but Brock and Gabe will probably be there.

It's good to hear you are submitting to the Horror competition. All of the entrants to the recent 48 Hour competition were automatically entered to that genre, so there are a lot of entries. I hope you make it on the show... I hope we make it on the show! :)

The audience vote has really become a crapshoot, but the category awards can make up for it. If you go into it to fun and have your stuff played on TV, then it'll be a rewarding experience.

Thanks for the encouragement. If the writer/director does not mind, maybe i can get you a link to watch our film when we get a web version uploaded. We used a 35mm adapter that I made for the GS400 to mount canon EOS lenses. That introduced some of its own challenges along with shooting @ night. Good to have it "done for now".

I hear what you are saying about waiting for the panel awards. I hate to dis on last rounds winner. I just felt that Cold War was technically better and The Really Late Late Show was more inventive.

Gregg,

Cool, I'll look forward to seeing it. If it does make the TC show, I may not be back in town in time, but it will get Tivo'd!

Awesome to hear you used an adaptor! I've been messing around with mine for quite some time, and never yet dared use it for anything "important." How you shot at night using one, you'll have to let me know. Lot's of additional light? Very fast lenses? Do tell.
