Last weekend I returned to Austin to take in the festival as my digital series script Geeky Pheebs: Gets Schooled semifinaled in the competition. Overall, it was a positive experience the bummer, was that there was a huge storm that flooded the airport on Friday October, 30th and caused many flights from LAX to be canceled and thus prevent panelists and guest speakers from showing up to their events at the fest.

Yeah, the Austin storm was kind of like that. Ask somebody.
It was a much different vibe this year as a semifinalist because there were special panels and round tables available to us where there was more insight to what it is like to be a professional writer.

Some of my highlight were meeting screenwriter Edward Ricourt, listening to two special presentations by Oscar winner Michael Arndt, and attending the Nickelodeon Happy Hour.

It was also great to see so many people I met last year advance this year in the festival and beyond.

Being that I stayed with a friend on the east side downtown, I was able to appreciate more of the sights and sounds of the city and really gained an appreciation for the culture of Austin. I being from Saint Paul/Minneapolis, Austin felt very similar as it also has a small town vibe with
energy of a city much bigger.

If  you haven't been to the Austin Film Fest, put it on your radar.

May I just say what a comfort to find an individual who actually knows what they're discussing on the web. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people must look at this and understand this side of your story. I can't believe you are not more popular because you surely have the gift.
