I wanted to go to this. You have been telling me about his films for awhile now.
I hope the show was great. I am sure it was.
I was finishing up my curatorial responsibilities for the conference down in Santa Cruz. The sad thing is that I will not be able to enjoy the conference/the fruits of my labor, because I have a film job that month that will keep me up in the Redwoods for about three weeks, with no time to drive down to santa Cruz to partake of the conference offerings.
I have been thinking of you and I would like to see you soon. I am very busy, but between April 28-May 7, I have some unscheduled time. Do you have any availability during that period?
