It’s been a wild ride for the last 10 days. I got a call while at a film festival that executives from Acer Computer – yes, that Acer Computer – had seen footage from a couple of my 2007 and 2008 teaser trailers.
Evidently, they thought it would be cool and wanted me to output some selected shots to IMAX film to kick open the presentation they are making to 350+ of the global tech media. Needless to say, I was simultaneously stunned, excited and then terrified as the date was April 7th. It did not seem possible to pull this off.
But it’s happened. I basically worked straight through until it was done, FTP’d a sound mix to IMAX in Toronto and overnight renders to the wizards at RPG Productions in California and they worked miracles and the 2 minute clip will arrive at the Liberty Science Center IMAX Dome theater tomorrow am.
And I’m off to NJ myself Monday so and get to see it in person…
