Blurry San Jose

the rest of San Jose was quite blur
the premiere went off & the crowd absolutely loved it (even though they did start the screening while we were still on the red carpet! hah! talk about crazy)
there was a lot of drinking, not very much sleeping & a lot of film screenings – two of Sparks & a few of the midnight screenings we managed to catch (one was all about zombies! oh yeah!)
we did manage to take quite a lot of video footage, but that needs to be edited…a lot! haha
here’s the rest of our San Jose trip…

Sparks Red Carpet

the red carpet was hilarious.
and by hilarious i actually mean kind of terrifying! (in a good way of course)

there were people everywhere, along with crazy bright lights & more cameras then you could poke a stick at! it was really wild!
i’ve been on the press line before, taking pictures of people on the red carpet when i helped Mike out with Indie Film Nation, and even that was crazy – not to mention i was a little star struck (Joseph Gordon Levitt!!!!!), but this was a whole new strange level for me!
i did feel like my face was going to burst from smiling so much – but i figure that can’t be a bad thing!

some friends managed to snap some photos of us as we were shuffled down the press line so i thought i’d share a few

it was really such a fun experience.
plus i managed to find a 1940s dress to fit in with the era of the film, so i ticked that one off my list!

i wore: vintage 1940’s dress from Shag / sportsgirl heels / vintage bag
mike wore: ted baker endurance suit / ted baker shirt

do you know the way to San Jose

yes – we were those tourists, humming this song on the flight over
we did take up a few rows on the plane so i think we got away with it! πŸ˜‰

San Jose was surreal.
Not only did we have the film premiere at the Cinequest Film Festival, but the Sparks comic book launched the night we arrived, as well as other press lunches & interviews that had to be done. Mike was run off his feet!

i was able to meet everyone i’d heard so very much about – it was lovely to finally put faces to names! Some friends traveled to be there the night of the premiere which meant so much to us! (thank you so much Amy!) the support was incredible!

With so much happening all at once i forgot to take as many photos as i would have liked, but here’s day one of San Jose…
