Wisconsin Film Festival

We had a great time in Madison for the Wisconsin Film Festival. After what was described to us as the longest winter ever, we were lucky enough to arrive on the first warmer weekend. On Saturday, we hit the town with our great street team of Chris, Emily, and Andrew. As we were walking around, we even spotted a local balloon twister making a purple balloon dog.

While at most film festivals we spend a lot of time on the go, this time we decided to relax and not worry so much about marketing. We sat out by the melting frozen lake, with hundreds of University of Wisconsin students. There we saw a badger pop out of the lake, a marching band perform, and a wedding party go by.

That night, we had a nice dinner with our fantastic hosts, The Timmermans. They live on one of Madison's many lakes, and have a beautiful, relaxing view.

We then headed out to a film festival party downtown. It was a pretty small gathering, but we did meet a few filmmakers. One woman came up to us and said she was excited to see our film, and said it was nice to meet female filmmakers with a "big" film. So, we thanked her for thinking we have a big film. Who knew?

The next afternoon, we had our screening at the Monona Terrace Convention Center. A few balloon twisters came out to show support - along with 250 other people. The turnout was a fantastic surprise, as we barely know anyone in Madison. Almost everyone stayed for the Q and A, including a balloon twister who made hats for the audience, and a woman, who told us she wants to buy the DVD for each of her sons for Christmas.

Anyone else interested in buying the DVD? EXCITING NEWS COMING SOON...
