I think it might make more sense to take the full day.  By 8am, there's going to be a huge line, don't you think?

thats a good question.  i really have no idea.  i've seen Aronofsky and Gondry there and it wasnt too bad.  i will head over there at 2 probably, but my girlfriend has the day off and could be there earlier if needed.  but if you're going at 8am you can hold us 2 spots. :)

i can't get time off. enjoy.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

that was fun.  sambong and (former xixaxer) mutinyco were there too.  it was sweet because we didnt have to wait out front like for most events, they just let us sit through the previous presentation inside and didn't kick us out or anything.

barry sonnenfeld showed up to moderate which was great in the beginning because he has a relationship with Los Coens and sort of knew how to get them to talk and then not so great when after 10 or 15 minutes he opened it up to questions from the audience for the remainder of the hour(!)  i'm reading their book of interviews now, so in addition to sort of already knowing the answers to any of the questions i might have had i was also aware of their somewhat prickly personalities and would've stayed away from questions that would bother them or go unanswered altogether (as more than a few audience questions did!)  unfortunately the one question i did have which was

you've made a career of doing original stories for your films and only recently have taken on a slew of adaptations, someone elses screenplay for Intolerable Cruelty, the existing film of The Ladykillers and the book for No Country For Old Men.  is there anything that prompted the move towards adapting others material?

but someone asked a variation on that question which was something along the lines of do they feel a difference in doing adaptations or original stories and they said it was basically the same.  i was lucky enough to get my Raising Arizona and Big Lebowski dvd's signed by the pair but neither seemed very thrilled to do so!   i can't remember if i learned anything new neccesarily during this Q&A, but it was still fun and interesting. 

edit: some stuff i remembered...

-they mentioned To The White Sea being the only script they ever wrote without any humor in it, and it being the only script they couldn't get made.

-they said that they looked more for lighting to create a texture and mood from a cinematographer more than camera placement because while they can figure out basically where to shoot something lighting is a complete mystery to them.  like acting.

-they write and edit together in the same room.  ethan types.  for editing ethan marks up a scene and passes them to joel by dinging a hotel bell and joel roughly assembles the scene.  if he doesnt like it he'll go through the takes and try to find something that works.

-they said that editing on an apple is not that different to them than editing on film.  but that they don't plan to shoot digital anytime soon because the technology is not there yet.  they've seen some work more successfully than others but unless you want 'that look' for your film there is no reason to shoot that way.
