The big night arrived!  Guests began to arrive as early as 4:30pm, and after about 30 people filled the Jepson Center For the Arts atrium, the memories really began to come forth.  There were many hugs, reminiscing, picture-taking, and consumption of great food (provided by Carlito’s Mexican Bar & Grill)!

 

The premiere of ‘Life Path:  The Director’s Cut’ officially began at 5pm, with the film starting at 6:30pm in the Jepson Auditorium.  Immediately following the film was a raffle, in which 11 DVDs of ‘Life Path:  The Director’s Cut’ and 4 ‘Life Path’ posters were given out.  Following the raffle was a Q&A session with Areya Simmons, the writer and director of ‘Life Path’.  Then, as a special surprise, a documentary, ‘The Making of Life Path’, put together by Thomas Stern (also the On-set Videographer), was shown to the audience, which included the cast, some of the crew, parents, and friends.  After many laughs thanks to the documentary, more questions were asked by the viewers.  Everyone then returned to the atrium for more discussion, hugs, and photos.  It was truly an evening to remember.

 

Many thanks go out to Mieko Tominaga for her tremendous hard work and support in helping to make the premiere happen.  I could not have done it without her!  Also, big thank-yous go to Daniel Dennis and Blue McElroy for their professional picture-taking and great support!  Another huge shout-out goes to Promyce Johnson and Yemaya Johnson for their support and great help in organizing the food table, tearing raffle tickets, and tear-down following the event.  I also send gigantic amounts of gratitude to my talented cast and crew, who made this project possible in the first place.  Last but certainly not least, huge thanks go to my mother, Stephanie Simmons, for her unmatched love, support, tips, and advice from afar.

THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS MAGICAL EVENING SO SPECIAL AND MEMORABLE!!!  YOU HAVE MY UNDYING GRATITUDE!!!

THAT’S A WRAP!

Hello everyone!

Editing on ‘Life Path’ is in full swing and I can’t wait to share it with you all!  All of you worked so hard and you all deserve to be rewarded!  We will have a pizza party before the quarter is out so that we all have the chance to share our memories and network with one another!

UPDATES AND SCHEDULE FOR POST-PRODUCTION:
– There will be a rough cut of the film completed by the end of the quarter.
– During Winter Break, I will put together a trailer for the film and post it to this website via YouTube!  That way, you can embed the trailer into your blogs and websites (especially for the cast members who need to showcase their work as soon as possible).
– When Winter Quarter comes, the final version of the 12-minute cut as well as the Director’s Cut will be finalized.
– At the end of Winter Quarter and into the beginning of Spring Quarter, I will start making the DVDs that will have just the Director’s Cut on them (no extra features yet).  This will allow me to get the finished film to everyone involved with the film as soon as possible.
– Throughout Spring Quarter, I will be sending out the DVDs and working on the special features for the Special Edition DVD, which upon completion, I will send out to everyone who wants one.  🙂

PLANNED SPECIAL FEATURES:
– DIRECTOR’S INTRODUCTION
– DIRECTOR AND PRODUCER’S COMMENTARY
– CAST COMMENTARY
– SET PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY
– MAKING OF ‘LIFE PATH’ DOCUMENTARY, MADE BY OUR OWN SET VIDEOGRAPHER, THOMAS STERN
I will also be looking into possible SCREENING VENUES for April so that we can all have our own private screening of the finished film.

OUR CURRENT TENTATIVE PREMIERE SCREENING DATE IS SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 2011.  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!

Thanks again so much to all of you!  You made me proud!  Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at lifepathfilm@gmail.com.  Also, feel free to post your thoughts on the film in the Comments attached to this post!

Peace!  🙂
