I just wanted to share the great news about our very successful private premiere screening of The Green Girl yesterday at the Laemmle Royal Theatre in West Los Angeles. We had approximately 150 people in the audience, including several of those interviewed in the film (see the photos below). We had a Q&A session afterwards, and a lot of the audience stayed the whole time (right up until the theatre manager threw us out so they could start the next movie).
People really seemed to love the film, and it was especially gratifying to see how younger members of the audience (who didn’t really know anything about Susan) reacted to the story.
Having spent so much intensive time with the film (and having seen it SO MANY times now), I had lost a lot of perspective. It was a huge relief yesterday to finally confirm (in front of a large audience) that this is, indeed, the film I always intended it to be. Feeling very grateful!
Next steps: I’m working with a trailer editor and we should have something to show you by the end of the month. Then we start working on the general release plan!
