Bit of an exciting week for me, I’m trying to be present and enjoy these rather special times. Tomorrow morning at 5:30am they announce the Oscar Nominations – fingers crossed – Then on thursday we are driving down to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. La Luna is screening the night of the premiere in front of Lawrence Kasdan’s new film Darling companion. It’s just fantastic that an animated short would open in front of film like this. It’s an absolute honor to be there in such company with our little film, just like it was at Telluride when we screened in front of Wenders’ Pina. In fact I’d love to see this become a trend and witness more shorts of all types screen at festivals’ premieres.
So there you have it, will I be able to sleep tonight? Hard to tell, but as we’d say in Italy (for break a leg)-”In bocca al Lupo” to us and we would answer-”Crepi!”.
I leave you with a photo of the advance copy of the La Luna storybook I received a few days ago. I’ll tell you more about it soon, but it’ll be available in May, pre-order here.
