    Yeah, sorry bout that, we got way busy yesterday. The movie was a big hit, we had bout 30 to 40 peeps to the movie, we would have had more but the olmos panel was at the same time in the next room. The buzz was all fantastic, we gave out about 25 copies of the movie and had to turn people away when we ran out. We got stopped so many times from people with praises and while I was escorting Michael Rosenbaum I got stopped so much he asked what the heck they were talking about. Overall, very positive screening, and again the emp and roundo were the big draw. Pv

    Awesome. Sounds like everything is going great. Now, if only I could get a copy of the film.

    Lol. Don't feel bad, Osiris, I dont even have a copy of the movie right now. I dont know where all those copies came from. Hope it wasn't the rough cut that a lot of people mysteriously got before it was done for Maiden.:eek: lol.

    Sounds awesome, pv! Pity we had to compete with Olmos, but we did alright. Figured you got busy. Usually no news is good news. Sounds like a great con!

    We're working on it. Pacervader was looking into getting the main feature professionally burned onto DVD for us. This will ensure studio-quality transfer, and not degrade as easily as a home-computer burn does.

    However, there is a cost to doing that. I forget what was quoted but it was like five bucks each that all of us would have to pony up for 100 copies of the film to be transferred. We obviously would want a copy of this burn to go to our Guest Stars Mayhew and Bulloch.

    Sithmonger and I are working on getting a disc 2 of outtakes, bloopers, trailers. the radio interviews and other cast-oriented stuff we can burn limited copies of for the cast, crew and club members. Of course case and cover is also in production so it can go right next to the Saga on your DVD shelf.

    There is no timetable on any of this, so patience - my friends. In time we will seek you out.

    Thanks for the update. I hadn't heard anything and was just curious. Also, I'd be willing to put up money to get a copy.

    Please excuse the interuption, was just visiting and reading your threads,
    as I often do,
    and noticed this one about,

    http://www.screamingtikicon.com/


    and that is in ..........CLEVELAND, OHIO:eek:



    [face_thinking] _________I am on the Paducah, KY boards, right?????

    and I am guessing that their once was a

    Cleveland FanForce,


    anyway, looks like a fun con, and I guess, I am hopeful there
    are guys from Cleveland hanging out here in Paducah, and it
    just was too darn interesting not to post about the
    distance between, and and ....... ok I am babbling now, but hopefully,
    you can see how this can facinate a person:)

    Yep, this is the Paducah, KY forums. We made friends with the guy running Screaming Tiki a couple of years ago when he came down to a convention being held across the river in Metropolis, IL. Some of us traveled to Niles, OH where the first Tiki was last fall and we had a blast - we conducted a fanfilm panel and actually did some filming that wound up in the movie we're talking about. So...our club President and a few others were able to help this year at their Cleveland show and some more of us should be attending at Niles again in the fall. Last year a few of us, both 501st and non-501st, trooped with the Ohio Garrison - a great bunch of folks - but I don't think any of us is trooping in Cleveland, they're just helping with the con, which can be busy but great fun in itself.

    But, my question is, if you live up near Chicago, why in the name of Jar Jar would you peruse our forums? [face_thinking] lol

    Maybe we'll cross paths next month - some of us will be going up for Wizard World. Thanks for the interest and glad you were fascinated!

    Drop by anytime!

    Because I'm having fun:)


    But seriously, thanks for the kind words. If you look at my post history,
    I am kinda wandering more and more. Not only in cyberspace, but with just the
    crazy idea of meeting Star Wars fans.

    You really are not that far away for me. I have been to FanForce meetings in
    Bloomington, IN. (home of our new RSA) and have even ventured to Evansville,IN.
    which is even closer to Paducah.

    You guys down here in Paducah look to be active, and having a great time.
    So, I try to visit and see what's up, just in case there's an alignment
    of Stars and planets of some kind.

    Very cool, about Wizard World. Way too much happening that weekend
    for me to know what I am up to. But, if the Grand Moff Wife, lets me
    go do Star Wars that weekend, It will either be in INDY or at Wizard World.

    Hey Guys,
    I'm finally back home. The con was good, the crowd needed to be more but overall a very positive experience. Our photography company, Serenity Studios, handled the celebrity photo op at the con and that went fantastic. It was a big draw and a very positive 1st outing, one I hope will be replicated for us in the future, i'll post some pics of the action below.
    The 501st mixer went well, we left just before Ray Park and Daniel Logan got there, theres a funny story bout that I can't tell on the boards, ask me later[face_whistling]
    Anyway, as far as copies of the movie go, I wanted to thank Scott for burning me a stack the day before we left, they went like hotcakes. Leike Lordinvar mentioned, I would like our copies to be professionally done to insure watchability far into the future, or at least till we have Fanboy on bluray....jk. It costs about 200 per 100 disks so unless anyone else knows a cheaper option thats what were probably going with. So ideas on how to raise the money would be appreciated, aside from donation of course. Which leads me to thinking we need to have another meeting. So how does Saturday August 1st work for everybody? Post your thoughts on any of this, talk soon. pv
