well, heck. i was going to write a detailed entry about the films i saw at the h.p. lovecraft film festival, but i don't even know where to begin and here it is tuesday already. i lived at the hollywood theatre for three days and four nights subsisting on popcorn, soda, candy and very little sleep. of course none of the films were really good (kudos to "cutethulu," "the dreamquest of unknown kaddath," and "the eldritch influence;" honorable mention to "dark heritage" just because of philip & sven), but that wasn't the point. it was just good to be immersed in a different environment.

michael came for two nights and ended up with two cds from the h.p. lovecraft historical society. philip & john were there all four nights, as was sven, who bought everything from land of the blind, both cds from the historical society and lots of other emphemera. i "helped" sven film on the last day before the theatre opened: he has an idea for a short film and i just followed him around and scowled at people who got too close.

there was a q&a about "cool air" and after hearing the story of how the director met the lead actor twice, i asked a blunt but embarassing question about how much money the lead actor was worth (to which the director replied, "you're a pretty girl, but that's none of your damned business."). too bad. apparently the whole film cost $35,000 and i wanted to know what chunk of that was paid to the lead actor, especially since the director had talked about how many favors he had to call in and how so many people worked such long hours for free and for "the love of the art." in general, there seems to be a huge disconnect between wanting people to do things "for the art" and wanting them to be paid. i remember an old mentor used to make sure i got paid for things i would have done for free because he felt strongly that that was what one should get paid for. but to have such an imbalance between all those people who worked for free and the man who probably got paid at least $5000 makes me uncomfortable.

between the time spent at the film festival and the lovecraft adaptations i saw in seattle w/ dan, i think my brian is pleasantly full. i'm done for a while. it will trickle away until next october and then i'll be ready for another (unless we end up doing a "scary solstice" caroling party in december.... hmmm....).
