Through My Eyes

Timing was everything.

Education of Saints

leave a comment »

Successful fundraiser tonight at Local 123 in Berkeley.  Louisa de Cossy’s coming of age story, Education of Saints, is going to be nothing less than a masterpiece, I can tell.  She’s leaving for Ireland on Sunday and will be attending the Ireland International Film Festival where she and her crew will screen scenes from her project to debut to the public.  Really excited for her.  This is one of those time when I feel confident about being part of the student body at BDFI – projects like this and people like her behind those projects.

Lyniel, Louisa’s producer and a former BDFI student, came into our class Monday night to sell raffle tickets to help raise money to complete the film.  I had a $20 bill, so I bought 20 tickets and actually won two great prizes at tonight’s event: a one-month membership & personal training session at Tufunga Training in Emeryville and a month’s access to the Parisoma Innovation Loft space, courtesy of Fast Forward Films and Parisoma.

August is turning out to be a great month so far.
