Pretty Sweet Premier at LLAMFF 2010
S,o our folksy little bike film got its first outing at Llanberis Mountain Film Festival this weekend. We felt really honoured to have Pretty Sweet shown alongside some really amazing mountain films and be able to take part in what was a lovely weekend of mountain culture.
We got to look pro for two whole days
A massive thankyou to all the guys involved in LLAMFF for putting on such an ace event, and letting us be part of it. It is not often complete newcomers get a chance to be shown alongside some of mountain cultures leading filmmakers. They put us on straight after Welsh Connections for goodness sakes. Thankyou to everyone that took the time to watch our film, both the big crowd that saw it on the saturday, and everyone who stuck around on the sunday, and especially to all those people who came up to us with kind words. We really appreciate it.
Sadly, even with cool film maker passes, we couldn’t pull of the pro look for long. We fit the idiots with a camera look much better.
The excellent Rush Hour Dream beat us to best newcomer, as it really was an excellent film. One of my favourites of the whole festival, along with Birdman Of The Karakoram, Welsh Connections and Alone On The Wall.
Shoddy picture of the crowd at the end of our first showing. I was so pleased that so many people stuck around. Best say thank you to Sarah for hanging out for the entire weekend. She was inspired to try and get into paragliding.
All in all it was a great weekend. Plans are afoot to be back next year…
