Aspen Shortsfest – Day 2

Wednesday April 11 2012

It’s an unseasonably sunny and warm day again in Aspen – the remaining snow on the mountains is melting quickly and we’re looking forward to a gondola ride to the top of Aspen Mountain tomorrow.

James and Cathy are interviewed this morning by Rochelle on KSPN FM Aspen – great promotion for the screening of OCHRE AND INK tonight at 5:30pm in Shortsfest competition program 3 at the fantastic old Wheeler Opera House.

In the afternoon we screen OCHRE AND INK to a class at Aspen High School, followed by a very thoughtful Q&A with students.

Walking into the school feels a bit like being in a High School movie, with corridors of lockers, bunches of very cool students chatting as they walk between classes etc. Aspen High has 550 students and a ski lift from the school straight up onto the mountain for the all important ski lessons!!

Evening – OCHRE AND INK screens at Wheeler Opera House to a packed theatre and is received enthusiastically by the sophisticated Aspen audience. The projection here is absolutely first class and our film looks beautiful on the big screen.

Xiaoping & James join other filmmakers on stage for a Q&A and afterwards Xiaoping is ‘mobbed’ by fans. Feedback from many audience members is extremely positive – our film really connects with people here, just as it did at FIFO in Tahiti.
