Mexican Soiree

So, a little while back we had a Mexican Soiree with a bunch of people that Rory met at the School of Fine Arts at Concordia. It was a pretty fun night filled with tacos, churos, wine, silent charlie chaplin films & music. Everyone even got all dressed up in fake mustaches, and cool outfits – which was great because we though we’d be the only ones that would be queer enough to get all dolled up haha. We ended up waiting a while for everyone to get to our apartment – so in the meantime we played records, made delicious food and even took some photographs. When I went home for Uncle Mike’s wedding I got all my film developed & surprisingly most of it came out very cool (my light meter in my camera needs a new battery so we just guesstimated on most of the shots).

After looking at the pictures it inspired Rory to base his first 5 min. short film on that night. We are shooting it today/tonight – it’s pretty exciting! Rory purchased a really nice Canon 814 Super 8 Camera for the shoot.

Also, exciting news! Rory and his fellow first year MFA Filmmates (there’s 7 of them) had their first screening of all their previous work last night. It was amazing! A lot more people than expected showed up and we went out for good conversation & food afterwards. All of the work was inspiring to watch – especially since I had been anticipating the work of the people Rory had been talking about for the last few months. I’m so proud of Rory. I might have seen those films a dozen times but it still made me feel happy for him with a million butterflies in my stomach. I thought to myself, that I could get used to this feeling! I’m really excited to see the work they will create in the next few years…
