It all comes down to this: after nine-hundred and twenty-nine days, "NYZ" finally hits the big screen at NYU's First Run Film Festival.
I was very pleased with the reception. It got plenty of laughs (even on the first shot!) and it looked and sounded great on the big screen with 5.1 surround sound.
Some of the cast and crew were in attendance, and I'm glad to say that they got to finally see their hard work up on the big screen with a receptive audience.
What's next? Now begins the festival submissions. First up is Telluride, which has a deadline just around the corner. And then, after that, the first real wave of submissions will start in August with Sundance, Slamdance, Edinburgh, and many more. I will keep you posted about these, too in the future.
I am very grateful to everyone who came out in support of "NYZ"and I hope for those of you who could not make it, we hope to bring it to a film festival near you!
