Wow!

So yesterday was the screening of "Lines of Flight" ... I went up on stage at the Eric Harvie Theatre to introduce the film, and when lights are shining at you on stage, you can't see the audience ... I put my hand up to shield my eyes to see who was out there and decided it was better not to look at that many people! There were about 450 people out there! That's probably more than have seen the film in total in the UK - this mountain film business is really serious in Canada.

It was great to watch the film in a big space, on a big screen, with a big audience, and lovely when people came up afterwards to say hello and that they'd enjoyed the film. Here's some of the feedback: "a really thoughtful film"; all those guys in the film are so articulate - so often people can be good at doing stuff but not at talking about it"; "it was great to see a film that was so thoughtful and didn't just lash me round the head with images"; "all 7 of us ust sat there going 'wow, this is good'"; "it's nice to see something intellectual about what we do"; "fantastic cinematography, loved the way you used the still images alongside the moving image" ... and so on!

So this is just a(nother) public thank you to everyone who contributed to the film, whether with time, or money, or other resources, to everyone who supported us in making it, and everyone who's turned up to see it - thank you!
