Anyway the movie was much better than I thought it would be. It might not be flawless but it was still good. And I feel that as a future filmmaker I learned a lot from it. So after the G& A I hung outside for a little while until the going to the after party. WHich is were one the photos below was taken.

For me it was so much fun because it was my first none telluride premiere. And I loved it. Because it there was not a large group of people and almost everyone was so friendly it felt a little like Telluride. Now I know those of you have have been to telluride are gasping at this but its true - it was not telluride but it gave me almost the same warm happy feeling that telluride does. The feeling you get when you are around people who make movies.
And I also learned something huge at the after party. I learned that as much as I want be a filmmaker that does not have to worry about bills and what I am going to do if I can't pay the bills I learned that at the end of the day I don't want to be some ego " hollywood" person. I want to be a Filmmaker.
Same thing goes for me as an actor. I want to be with people who love making movies and are not in it for the chance of fame. They do it because they want to and because they love it.

It was also awesome for me to spend some time with teens who were in the film. There is always something so interesting about meting actors your own age ( or close). They were very nice to me and very welcoming. Which as far as teenagers go I'm not to used too. And to hear them talk about there work really got me going.
over all the night reminded me why I wanted to be here in the first place. And that going to parties and screens is something I don't want to do once in a blue moon its something I want to do all the time. This why I moved here.
Slowly but surely I am getting :)
