Leonardo Shows at Newport

All week I have been showing Leonardo to school kids at the Newport Film Festival! At least 700 probably more saw the film during the week and the reaction has been overwhelming. Sunday the film showed to the public amongst some really excellent shorts for 6 yrs and up. Zoologic by fellow calartian Nicole Mitchell, Seven Days a Weekby They Might be Giants were a couple of the others. The Newport Film Festival staff and volunteers were awesome. Mike at the Jane Pickens theater made sure Leo sounded good and Leo looked great up on the big screen. I met great people and had a lot of fun. If your a filmmaker or love films you should defiantly check out the NIFF festival next year!

Hi Jim- it was fantastic meeting you this past weekend at the Festival! Thank you so much for taking the time to have the q&a session and also chat afterwards. I hope you all had a wonderful time in Newport- congratulations on finishing Leonardo & unleashing it to the world! I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll do next. Last but not least, thank you for being an inspiration.

Take care,
