We just returned from Kansas City, and let me just start this post by thanking two of our executive producers, John and Jennifer Stephens, who really spoiled us. Eating, drinking, lodging - they made sure we wanted for nothing during our two night, three-day stay.
They finally got to see "Out Here In Kansas," which was shown on the big screen Thursday night to finish the Kansas International Film Festival. We were the only documentary in a block of other local films - my personal favorites were "Hoyt," "Corvalo" and "For Sale," which was a speechless, minute-long narrative created by our own producer, Savannah Rodgers.
I wish we'd gotten Savannah in this picture (that's me on the left, cinematographer Kenny Linn in the middle and producer Jon Pic on the right) because it was the first time the four of us had been together in awhile. Nonetheless, it was great to hang out and we were even treated to a first-class after-party when the festival ended.
Kenny and I did a little work on Friday - we're still poring over a short list of what our next projects will be - before John and Jenn threw a celebration party for us in a private room at a club called The Levee.
That brings us up to the hazy wee hours of Saturday morning. But I'll save that for another post.
