Spaghettiman made its Texas premiere and I think we can safely say, the state will never be the same.
We rolled in Sunday, the 17th, to rain. Hours later, it stopped. Was it because Spaghettiman arrived? No one can really say, but it was.
The film was part of the festival's "Spotlight" series, which we imagine means it's just too good for a regular designation? Let's believe that.
Before we screened, we were given the opportunity to talk to a class at the Mediatech Institute, a fantastic school in Dallas that teaches audio and video production and has facilities and equipment so good, we considered moving there and enrolling. The class was great, asked a ton of fantastic questions, and I think we shaped some minds into some sort of shape.
Spaghettiman then met Diego Luna, which means he is now part of Star Wars canon?
Finally, the screenings. They were FANTASTIC. Two incredibly enthusiastic crowds showed up. And as a sign of how much they loved it, barely any left afterward, which meant both Q&A sessions were jam packed with awesome questions.
These kids learned a valuable lesson: get paid!
Spaghettiman even took a business meeting. We can't say what it was about, but we can show you where it was at.
That's right: A BUILDING!
We also received some amazing press from Dallas. First, they put us on television, which seemed like a bad idea due to the fact we are promoting a film titled Spaghettiman, but it went great.
Next, Peter Martin of TWITCHFILM said, "Whether we like it or not, superheroes and their blockbusters have become an extremely common point of cultural reference, and we need more movies like Spaghettiman to point out how ridiculous that is."
And Eddie Pasa of DC Filmdom called Spaghettiman the "ultimate millennial superhero" and said the film was "Deadpool meets The Big Lebowski."
And you can check out all our awesome red carpet interviews here. Watch and learn of the many, many origins of the film.
A big thanks to the Dallas International Film Festival and a big, big thanks to the people who came and watched. We cannot thank any of you enough.
Onto the next festival!
