The first screening I attended at AFF was the documentary Warrior Champions. It follows four American soldiers, wounded in combat, as they try for the 2008 Paralympic Games. It’s pretty intense.

All four soldiers were at the Q&A, along with filmmakers the Renaud brothers.

Thank you for your service.

Battlestar Galactica was lots of fun. Good television. But wait, the show is over and reached a end of story? Uh-oh, can’t make a spinoff sequel. What to do… Let’s make a prequel!

A couple of weeks ago a call for photographers for the 2009 Austin Film Festival went out to the Austin Photogs Facebook group. Photograph the filmmaker Q&A screenings and provide event coverage in exchange for an all-access pass. Sweet. Feature screenings I saw:

  • Caprica
  • Warrior Champions
  • Little Fish, Strange Pond
  • Cummings Farm
  • Wild Texas Weather

My friend Carter has a new project: Again, For The Win. To celebrate their formation and Megan‘s birthday, Carter, Paul, Wayne, and Travis threw a barbecue (really, just grilling some and partying).

Since most of the members of Carter’s other project stumbledrunk were there, they also gave an impromptu performance. It was fun times.
