Indeed. I really enjoyed attending last year's event. Not sure it's in the cards for me this round, but I'll probably send a DVD for the screenings.
 
Cracker Funk, I got your PM! Sounds great! Yes, there are kids in some of these pics, mainly because they are my brood (or their friends) and the event is 3 days long. They like to swim or see some of the demos and certain movies. Generally, the features are not kid friendly. Almost all the stuff from last year was edgy:

ONE LONG DAY
THE BACK ROOM
BIOSLIME (aka CONTAGION)

As with most indie stuff, you never know what you're going to get! I like that spirit of the Meet. It's a mish mash of offerings.




Had a great time there last year. :cool:

Time to check the schedule. Would love to come again.

That would be totally cool if you or Jeff could make it out, again! We sincerely enjoyed having you guys. At the very least, we'll get Jeff's movie. :lol:
 
You mean, 3 days that you can't make it. I do want to meet you, ROC. Maybe, the next one?

lol I would love to but I think maybe it's because it's 7 days a week from here until basically June.

Maybe next year!!!

Memorial Day weekend is one of five I just can't get out
of work on. Damn this entertainment business. People
off work want to be entertained and I chose the wrong field.

I so want to attend.
 
Your knowledge would be very welcomed, Rik! A presentation by you or ROC would be a treat. You almost have to play this by ear; if either of your schedules opens up, we'll be waiting for you.

Sure wish I could. I finally got a cut of the swamp monster
movie I made 2 years ago with Lance Hendrickson, Michael
Ironside and Heather Morris. Be a blast to show it there. Even
though I think the editor they hired is blind or smoking dope.
Or both.
 
How did I miss this thread? These always look so fun!

One of these years, scoop, I'm gonna make it out there.

Zensteve brings the pineapple-upside-down cake, right? :yes:
 
Favorite quote from Tron:

"Yer messin' with my Zen-Steve, man!"

Sorry, had to do it.



Scoopic - I'm trying to work something out.
 
I attended last year and had a super good time. Mike is a wonderful ringleader, Sheila provides a banquet of delicious food and both Conways are consummate hosts! :) Will be back for another round. Maybe next year. Have a blast in 2011!

Just let us know. If you can swing the airfare, you won't need money for anything else. If Zensteve doesn't bring the pineapple-upside-down cake, we'll think of something!

Oh, really..........?:yes:

I loved seeing you soak it up, Jeff. You are a hoot to be around!
