LATE Show Report from 4/18/09, RPS #16

So the third season of Renegade Picture show has begun – this time with a “Dumb” (if not Dumber) movie. We had a GREAT turnout for the show and everyone had a great time. The weather was perfect – a great way to start the season.

Sometimes I feel a little bad about turning down the music and starting the show because it interrupts the social atmosphere – everyone is moving about, chatting it up and just enjoying hanging out together. But once the pre-show footage gets going everyone seems to remember – ah, yes we are here for this – and they get comfortable and start to watch.

Aside from a couple of technical glitches (i.e. losing power halfway through the show and having my laptop DVD player freeze-up at the VERY end of the film – that killed me by the way) everything went pretty well. I’ve realized I’m sort of a perfectionist when it comes to syncing everything together and making it appear seamless. I guess I have an expectation for that performance aspect of the show – a part which maybe you don’t see but I feel it is there because I’m trying to make the experience look and feel a certain way. I think therein lies the “art” part of the show. I was about to go off on a tangent here but I’ll save that discussion for a separate post.

For the time being we’ll just leave the show report at that. Next show will be soon – I know we’re running out of days in May and my intention was to do at least one show this month but we’ve had an incredible amount of rain – that in combination with my absurdly busy schedule. Rest assured, we will have a show or two in June.

By the way, who else here is a David Lynch fan?
