Man what a night! We had over 400 people show up to our World Premiere of Rat Rod Rockers! at the awesome Historic Everett Theater in Downtown Everett last night. We (my family and I) got there at 4 PM to start setting up our merchandise and actor autograph tables. Many of the Rat Bastards Car Club, who have cars featured in the film, came soon after parking their "Movie Cars" in front of the theater. It looked kill! Doors opened at 6:30 and the first band, The Wild Snohomians, opened the show at 7 PM. People began piling in, filling the lobby, actors tables, bar area and theater. I couldn't believe the turn out! We did a few radio announcements and ticket give-aways and had a few little blurbs in the papers, but no major advertisements. The theater can hold 800 people, but at 400 it seemed really crowed sometimes. Husband and wife photographer team Zombie Crush set up an actor portrait area to get promo shots of the actors at the Premiere. NW Live TC was there interviewing me and the actors and filming the event for their Internet TV Show. Rat Bastards Photographer Diane Jacobson was also snapping some great pics of the event. Besides the Rat Bastards members of Steeds Car Club, Greenwood Knights Car Club and Rumblers Car Club were milling around. After The Wild Snohomians finished their set, Blacktop Deceiver took the stage and kept the theater rockin' until it was time to screen the film. The Historic Everett Theater is a beautiful and swank locale. So upscale and perfect for any movie premiere. At 9 PM, H.E.T. theater manager Mike Olson took the stage and talked a bit about what was coming up at the theater. Then I jumped on stage and said a few words about Rat Rod Rockers! The crowd went ape shite! Once the film got underway I hung out in the balcony area checking sound and listening to the crowd. Man they were into it! When 400+ people are sincerely laughing, cheering and applauding your work- it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. When he film was done, the audience mobbed the me and the actors at the signature tables with smiles and praises for the film. I felt like my nine months of editing this bad boy had paid off. Now granted the films sound was not perfect, with odd background noises and an uneven EQ in spots, but I was crazy under the deadline and just barely made the first cut in time for the Premiere. I still have to go back and message the audio, rerecord a song or two and then RRR! will be truly completed. After the film was over, The Wild Snohomians played another set to close the evening. As the crowd slowly filtered out over the next few hours I felt happy knowing people really enjoyed Rat Rod Rockers! and had a great night. We are setting the Seattle Premiere for February or March, possible at Northwest Film Forum or SIFF Cinema. I can't wait!
