It's an early morning after last night's showing of Evangelion 1.0. Luckily the weather warmed up a bit for the outdoor screening, but there still was a chilly breeze gusting through Victory Park. Thanks again to all of you who came out to support the event. I even got to meet a couple of resident readers - VLOXY, sorry I couldn't bring Paniponi Dash. And thanks for the live coverage Humberto. A big thanks is due for AFI Dallas selecting Evangelion 1.0 as one of the participating films. Also, thanks to Julie of AFFD for the photos from the event.
For those of you who couldn't make it to Sunday's showing, we still have one more screening this Thursday, April 2nd @ 7:30pm. I may even have some ticket vouchers available. We did have a couple technical difficulties with our HD version at the Victory Park screening so hopefully that will all be resolved for the Thursday showing at the Magnolia Theater. Either way it still looked pretty awesome.
I also had the pleasure of attending a AFI Dallas afterparty later than evening with some of the FUNimation gang. With free food and drinks, how can you go wrong? Now I'm not used to the hoity-toity atmosphere of the former LFT Lifestyle Fashion Terminal at Victory Park, but it was interesting to hang around people in film. For good measure, they threw in a swimsuit fashion show.
I hope everyone that made it out enjoyed the show. I believe it was an overall positive experience and we hope for more to come. If you did attend and I didn't get a chance to say hello, sorry I missed you. Hopefully everyone got some goodies and Art Cards from the event. If you were there, please share you experience in the comments section. Also, let me know if you're going to attend the Thursday showing.
