1st public screening of "Antihero"

A little over 225 showed up, mostly cast/crew and friends. A handful of random stragglers showed up -- people who had heard about it an wanted to see it. My favorite part of the night was that a few broke-ass college students paid their admission with a handfull of quarters!

We had some kind of inexplicable technical issue. Since last night, I've heard that this theater has had similar issues with other indie screenings. I gave them a regular DVD. Tested it in my Xbox, and it worked perfectly. But then at the theater, the video and audio often went out of sync by a couple seconds. It would stay out of sync for 10-15 seconds, then come back in sync.

The audience was very forgiving. I think it's safe to say that nobody let the occasional out-of-sync audio ruin their experience. The audience LAUGHED THEIR FUCKING ASSES OFF. Seriously, it was a very fun time.

So far, one Indietalker has seen it (Dready helped with ADR), but that was the 1st rough cut. This website has been so instrumental in the entire process of this film, that I really look forward to showing the whole damn thing, in it's polished state, to anyone that wants to see it.

Congrats!
At the H.P. Lovecraft film festival screening of BTWOS in 2009, the DVD froze for like 20 seconds, in the same place both days. It had played flawlessly on my player at home. DVDs are just a huge dice roll.

As someone who has seen the 'rough' film, I'm not surprised it went so well.

So when can I buy the DVD? I'm really looking forward to seeing/owning the finished film!

I, for one, can't wait to see it.

I also, for one, can't wait for "Nudity Required Tuesdays".
