I had a rather wonderful day today.
This morning, I received an e-mail 99.9% confirming an upcoming paid freelance illustration job!!
I more or less finished my new short script entitled This Extraneous Evil and continued work on the next new short Those Endless Nights. (You can read a bit more about both these scripts under the “Works” section on my homepage: gegallas.wix.com/writer).
Jesús invited me to the gala screening for Alexander Payne’s Nebraska, which was extremely generous of him. I knew the film wouldn’t exactly be my cup of tea, but I’m glad I saw it at Cannes and got to be in the same audience as Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern. So thank you very much Jesús!!!
I had the most extraordinary coincidence happen to me on the bus. I was telling a fellow American Pavillion student how much I adore Mads Mikkelsen (ever since Casino Royale, I’ve watched as many of his films as I’ve been able to get my hands on… and, as you can imagine, I’m a Hannibal fan as well) and how much I wanted to see his new film Michael Kohlhaas. A gentleman from London sitting in front of us overheard our conversation and gave me his gala ticket to the film (!!!!!!!!!) because he wouldn’t have time to go. I thanked him profusely, told him about The Poet and the Flea and gave him my postcard. So amazing!
