My theme of two similar outings combined into one post seems to be continuing. And my getting stiffed on plans to meet friends also is continuing. I made a friend, whom I included in a recent post. We made plans to get together on August 23, 2023. She was very diligent about the plans, emailing back and forth for the days prior. So this day I went about my business and then got ready, which we all know, takes some time. I had planned on getting out early and stopping somewhere to work before meeting my friend. But this day it poured cats and dogs. So I decided on leaving just in time to meet my friend. Well, those storms caused her need to cancel. Certainly legitimate, but this always seems to happen to me. Always. Thankfully, I never left home.
So here is the extended photo shoot I took. I will be putting on everything exactly as you see here for a networking event the following day. So we have pictures one day and that outfit seeing the light of day the next.
August 25, 2023, the Schmooze! This is a networking event for those in the Cleveland film community. I knew quite a few people there and made a few new friends and connections. I had a lovely time. I was the only such person like myself and literally it never crossed my mind. While I know I have been at this a long time, there are still small doubts and frequent thoughts about what I am actually doing.
The highlight for the evening was a presentation that ran during the event. They ran nine trailers from filmmakers that were there, mostly made over the last few years, some still in production. Nine trailers, three movies that I was in and one of the trailers included me! It was very cool. I had a wonderful evening.
Here is her highness on her throne (the only actual picture from this day).
