Well, really, I think it paid off long ago in the form of introducing us to some really wonderful people with whom I pray we will be friends for the rest of our lives.
This past weekend, we drove to Tulsa to show the movie at two different theatres on Saturday. We had an informal showing in the morning and a formal showing in the evening. Both events drew in hundreds of people who had been excited to see the film for quite some time. Friends and family came in from California, New Mexico, Missouri, etc to show their support. It was a wonderful time that Ryan and I both liken to a wedding - only this time I got to be the "groom!" I say that because I got to just show up and enjoy everything while Ryan, the "bride," wrangled specific details.
The movie is still technically in post-production, but only long enough to tweak a few things. Then it's time to find a distributor. The "friends and family showings" were the culmination of so many people's time and effort, and I can't believe we're finally here.
If you worked on "Greyscale," I can't thank you enough for helping my husband achieve his dream. If you came to one or both of the showings, thank you SO much for your support! We love you all!
