Yesterday went very well. Thanks to everyone who came. There were some good questions from the audience, particularly Mike Jackon’s “How did you get everyone to work under such appalling conditions for no money?” Everyone really liked the documentary and said that I should use it as a promotional tool, which I hadn’t really thought about (too busy actually making it). The props display in the foyer kept blowing over every time the door opened, but nonetheless attracted a fair bit of attention.
For me the whole thing was something of a watershed. With the relatively short and easy “making-of doc” tunnel successfully navigated, it’s back to the big long “whole film” tunnel, and that light at the end is so very far away.
