Fantastic Fest report

I couldn’t even tell you what I saw the next day since it was so many films and the schedule was just so insane. But the events that mattered to me were The Fantastic Feud where American journalists and film makers battle in a quiz against journalists and film makers from around the world. There were broken bottles, film maker Nacho Vigalando getting drunk and humping myself and a few other people, along with Team League getting completely wasted, and Elijah Wood throwing ice at the audience and laptops. I’ve never seen so much chaos. It’s amazing how Scott Weinberg kept it together.

I also got to talk to Elijah Wood on a few occasions. The guy is really cool. We got along very well. Talked about what films we were seeing, how life is in LA and how much more he likes Austin. He’s an incredibly short man, but very generous with his time and very talkative. On the last day I was leaving and he went out of his way to come up to me and say good bye. We shook hands and spoke for a while. It was just too cool. He’s such a nice guy.


I also go to meet with Jeff Fahey who is Frank Lapidus on LOST. His publicist said she loves me. I was kinda sick so I didn’t shake his hands. She really loved that. I did the same for Elijah when I met him and he really appreciated that. I think that’s why he and I clicked so well.
