Slamdance or bust!

Hola, amigos! Just wanted to remind you guys that my movie “Not Forgotten” will be having its world premiere this Saturday night at the 15th Annual Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Hooray!

I’ll be staying at the posh Best Western in Coalville, which I hear is where all the big Hollywood stars bunk up. Not! But hey, hotels in Park City proper are expensive, yo! But seriously, if you’re thinking of coming out for the festival, the floor in my room in swinging Coalville is all yours, baby!

Slamdance!

Sadly, Christine will not be coming with me this time as she is what we call “very pregnant” and for some reason, the idea of riding on a plane to Utah and then trying not to slip and fall on snowy Main Street is not exactly appealing to her at the moment. Weird, huh?

Actually, I don’t blame her, I can’t tell you how many times I slipped and fell in snowy Santa Fe last year…yikes! Guess I’m more of a warm weather walker…or maybe I just shouldn’t wear my flip-flops in the snow…hmmm.

Anyway, if any of you are seriously considering making the trek to Park City for Slamdance (or Sundance for that matter!) you can purchase tickets to either the Saturday or Monday screening here. Also, there will be a filmmaker Q&A after both screenings, so if you’ve ever wanted to heckle me…now’s your chance.

And if you really wanna throw tomatoes my way, make sure and swing by the WGA-sponsored Screenwriter Fireside Chat on Tuesday the 20th at noon. Since most of America will be watching our first African-American President take the oath of office around that time I think the crowd at the Fireside Chat will be a little lean…so, you’ll be able to throw shit at me pretty easily. Yay!

Hope to see you there!

    Oh, I am sooooo excited for you!!!

    Congratulations on your big trip to Slamdance! Seems like it was only yesterday that your movie was being filmed in New Mexico…was it really almost one year ago?? Wow…

    At any rate, I couldn’t be prouder and more thrilled for you than I am at this moment. Wish I could be in Utah to cheer you on and to watch and photograph all of the thrills of the week. May this be the first of many film festivals – I’m sure to make it to one in the years to come. 🙂

    Congratulations once again, Tom. You deserve it. 🙂

    So cool. I’ve been thinking about all the short films you used to make and am so excited for you. Just left you a lame-o message on your mobile like a dork, but have a great great time at Slamdance!

    Hey, are you and Christine registered for baby stuff? Let me know!

  3. Aww…thanks for the kind words, guys!

    Speaking of our old short films…Ryan and I submitted “The Invisible Ray of The Moonbeast” to Sundance back in 1987, but I think it was a little ahead of its time. Oh, well… 🙂

    As far as the baby stuff goes, Christine and I are registered at Babies R Us, Amazon.com and PotteryBarnKids. Crazy, huh? Who knew babies needed so much stuff? Yikes…

    When you come do your Q & A at the Del Mar (yes, I’m still on that), you should put on a Romero Brothers short film festival! I need to see the crazy one with Marci in Mexico again someday.

  5. LMAO! I haven’t thought about “The Invisible Ray of the Moonbeast” in forever. Those Sundance folks didn’t realize what they were missing!

    Congrats on Slamdance! I wish I could be there with you, but alas, it wasn’t in the cards. You’ll have the time of your life.

    Tomas,

    Aw man, I wish I could heckle you at the panel. I’d bring eggs and tomatoes, too, just for fun! 🙂

    Seriously, kick some Slamdance ass, man. And I think the Best Western is WAY posh.
