I happened to see Francis Ford Coppola unveil what he's thinking with his new movie "Twixt". I'm not sure what to think of the movie, but I do know that this man's enthusiasm for his work is practically palpable, and definitely contagious. I walked out of there thinking about my own work and it's possibilities.
Also saw a couple of TV pilots that are coming this year. It will be interesting to see how they do. One is a JJ Abrams project, so we'll see where it goes. It seems like everything that guy does turns to gold, or at least silver. I think my takeaway from watching these pilots is that it seems like they're trying to mix comedy and horror, which is an uneasy match at best. Not that the shows aren't interesting. It just seems odd to go from cracking jokes to killing from one sentence to the next.
Lastly, I saw some famous people. I'm not one for chasing people down for autographs or pictures, mostly because I can be very lazy and very shy when it comes to stuff like that. However, I did run into a couple of my favorite Fringe characters: Walter (played by John Noble) and Olivia (played by Anna Torv). They were nice enough to let me have a photo.
By the way, we only have a few weeks left for our fundraising campaign, so please help us in any way you can.
