An Awesome Sunday



Well I just got back from the Detroit-Windsor International Film Festival screening and awards ceremony. I had an awesome time. I got a chance to see some really great films that were produced all by people from the metro Detroit area (and Windsor). It just proves what I've been saying all along, that Detroit does have talent regardless of the negative stuff that takes place here. My team didn't win but, we had a great time together. The experience was just wonderful, from the writing, filming, editing, and all the way down to the celebration. The award ceremony at the Detroit Institute of Arts was just beautiful. We got a chance to meet other filmakers, directors, and actors. I can't not mention the chocolate dipped strawberries. They were the best I've ever had. Hands down! I'm really happy and excited that the DWIFF is coming back here next year. All of this years participants should definitely have something to look forward to. I hope that we all were able to learn from this experience and take good notes so that next year we can step our game up! BTW, see the girl in the green dress running in the promo video? That's my team mate TT! She was racing to get our submission in on time! Thanks to her we made it just under 2 minutes!
