World Premiere check list

*Examine proof of poster for printing today
*Pick up posters tomorrow
*Deliver posters to places showing them
*Sell out World Premiere June 2 (check!)
*Sell out subsequent screening June 3 (nearly check!)
*Count guest list for private reception
*Finish ordering food for reception
*Make music selections for reception
*Take Seeker in for grooming Saturday - he stinks like a dog and looks tacky ...
*Get squirt guns for Aaron and me to fend off squirrels trying to get into bird feeders
*Schedule quality time with incoming family, friends and stars
*Make sure HD copy is ready for projectionist with Larry
*Check with John Beresford - make sure website is up to date
*Make sure clothes I'm wearing WP night are laundered
*Check with friend to help with makeup for WP night
*Take the hill! (It's a long walk up a steep hill - great exercise!)
*Tai chi to settle the nerves
*Find the present I bought Gary (forgot the "safe place" I put it)
*Get massage and facial Sunday to relax
*Go over schedule with Aaron to make sure I have time for all I have to do
*See a couple films in the festival to support other filmmakers
*Reflect on everything that's happened over the past year for which I am so incredibly grateful
*Reflect on the lessons I've learned about life, filmmaking, art, friendship, love, writing, directing, producing, and cooking. I'm finally learning to cook.
*Enjoy every moment of the celebration for THE WHOLE TRUTH - I've loved even the tiniest minutia of labor, the slightest detail in prepro, production, post and marketing and bask in my new friendships with some of the greatest talent this nation has to offer. I am profoundly humbled.

    Oops ... I neglected to ask you prior to now if there is a dress code for the reception. Well we'll be dressed (thankfully) .. in a respectable manner.

    Please do give us a heads up if it's a black tie/ Ball gown type of affair.

    This is the Great Northwest, Mireille! We're pretty casual - especially working in film. Everyone's going to look "nice." I guess that means bathed, hair combed, teeth brushed ... maybe blazers and no tie for the guys. I'm wearing a casual pants outfit.

    I am getting more and more excited day by day! I miss the North West and It is going to be great to be back. Even if just for a little bit.

    CONGRATS on a sold out premiere, cp! That's awesome! :) I'm sure the second showing will sell out soon. I won't be able to attend the festivities as I'll be on a flight en route to Singapore for a friend's wedding, but I'm so glad to have seen the cast screening. Have a blast! Much love and continued success! -henry

    I am so excited. I know you have to be jumping up and down. I spoke with Dawn (makeup) on a shoot this week and bragged that I got my tickets early! I have a dress all picked out and my husband (huge Sean Patrick Flanery fan) is almost as excited as I am. I can't wait to see the film and listen to everyone laugh!

    Holding my breath!
