The Austin Film Festival
Since I had not one but two screenplay that placed in the Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition, I'm hopping on a plane tomorrow with two of my best UCLA friends (who also placed) and attending it! I kind of can't wait, actually, it should be a blast.
I've never been to Austin, Texas before, but I've heard great things about it. And the festival itself looks amazing, with a ton of opportunities to meet people and learn from experts. Since we placed in the competition, we'll be given special badges and treated like royalty (ok, one of those two statements are true.)

"You don't need no stinkin' badges" so the 2nd part of the statement must be true.....Good luck! Can't wait to hear all about it!

I LOVE Austin--I was there for a month rehearsing with Will Rogers Follies and it's such a cool town!
Live music is everywhere...Jase, so cool--we're all so proud of you!

Jase, that is so cool!! While you are there you have to go to the Congress Avenue Bridge and check out the largest urban bat colony in North America. At sunset they all swarm out from under the bridge...people come out just to watch thousands and thousands of Mexican free-tailed bats fly out! After the moms give birth (that's why they go to that bridge) the pups hang around until October, so you may still see them, but you can call 416-5700, ext. 3636 (when you get there) to find out for sure if all the bats are still around.
