I’m Going To Cannes!!!

Disclaimer: I do not own this image!!

I first heard about The American Pavilion Cannes Film Program during my freshman year of college. The program was mentioned by the professor of an “Adaptation” course I was taking (we would read a short story or novel, then watch the movie adaptation of it). Over the years, I’ve thought of applying to the program and this year I finally did.

I really didn’t know my chances of getting into this program. But, as my motto has been for the past year or so, you never know until you apply.

Wednesday (December 19th), I had a phone interview with The American Pavilion. After the phone call, I really wasn’t sure how it went. I just tried my best to answer every question as honestly and enthusiastically as possible. I especially wasn’t sure since my answer for “the most recent film you’ve watched” was the 2009 British dark comedy In The Loop. Furthermore, I was shocked to hear that I would be notified by Friday the same week whether I got in or not!

Well, today is Friday and I received the e-mail… I’ve been accepted into The American Pavilion 2013 Cannes Film Program!!!!!!!!!

The program begins on May 12 and ends of May 27. I have no idea what to expect, but I hope I’m not too star-struck. According to the interviewer, the program is what you make of it, so that means I’m packing all my business cards, postcards, and copies of my screenplays.

After filling out a bunch of forms for The Pavilion, I guess I need to figure out what to pack as well as brush up on some French?

Wish me luck! Or “bonne chance”?

Wednesday, October 24th

  1. Uploaded portfolio to this blog.
  2. Requested invite from DreamUp.com (not at all sure how this will turn out…).
  3. Did some online research about zines, printers, etc.
Thursday, October 25th
  1. Working on submission to Fantagraphics.
  2. Continuing to work on some upcoming blog posts and project ideas.
Friday, October 26th
  1. Meeting with Gabe went very well as always. Gabe took the time to cut and paste his entire story, Elias & The City of Cats, into a children’s book format to give me a better idea of what I need to illustrate. From this prototype, I’ll start working on a rough sketch storyboard!
  2. Applied to the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival Screenwriters Competition. Information updated on “Applications” post, here.
  3. Completed submissions package for Fantagraphics. Now, I just have to put in the mail!
  4. Scanned character preliminary design for Elias and Ignis of Elias & The City of Cats. With this design, I was just experimenting with some Commedia dell’Arte (Pierrot & Harlequin) costumes which most likely won’t appear in the final children’s book. But Gabe seems to really like this image and wants to make some t-shirts. Any interest?

Saturday, October 27th
  1. Last night and today, working on rough sketch storyboard for Elias & The City of Cats.
  2. Did some experimenting with animation app on iPad.
Sunday, October 28th
  1. Worked on figuring out the crazy California ballot (so many props!) so that I can vote early tomorrow.
  2. Had a wonderful time with Wes today! Ate dinner at The Corner Store — both had these amazing “Grasshoppers” (crème de menthe, absinthe, chocolate, and vanilla ice cream). Can’t wait to see him again on Halloween! (○゜ε^○)
Monday, October 29th
  1. I voted today!!
  2. Dropped submissions package for Fantagraphics in the mail!
  3. Applied for a part-time writing job. Wish me luck!
Tuesday, October 30th
  1.  Working on rough sketch storyboard for Elias & The City of Cats.
  2. Discovered that my short screenplay Death Is No Bad Friend made it to the Kaos Films British Short Screenplay Competition 2nd Round Qualifiers (announced earlier this month). I have no idea how many rounds this competition is, but does that mean that judge Sir Kenneth Branagh has read my screenplay?  (。♥‿♥。)
  3. Responded to a film director on Craigslist looking for a short screenplay, and got an almost immediate response of interest. Hoping this will be successful!
  4. Sent an e-mail to Scout Books enquiring about collaboration and their Good Ink’s literary line.
Wednesday, October 31st
  1. Completed rough sketch storyboard for Elias & The City of Cats.
  2. Happy Halloween!!!  I had a great time at Wes’s house’s pretty dorky party, even though I don’t think anyone recognized my Daria costume (even though Shannon Woodward and Katy Perry dressed as Daria and Jane without my prior knowledge). Plus, Wes gave me a belated birthday present — meet Charles, the British alpaca!!
