I have not heard back from Fay yet in answer to your questions and I have just emailed her again with several more questions from you all.
But she did post in the FFG FB that Gale did pick the winners in the drawing and that the names will be posted tomorrow. So that is one question answered for you. :)
I will let you know when I hear from her.
I have just emailed Fay with your questions. Several folks have messaged me to ask about the drawing today and when the winners will be posted and also if Gale & Fay will be doing any more Q/A's this week while FFG is still in the theater.
I will post the answers to these questions as soon as Fay emails me back. She might post the info on the FFG facebook either before or after she let's me know. But as soon as I here from her, I will let you all know.
I have been chilling today and getting ready for a busy weekend. Here is an update from Fay.
Fay Ann Lee: Thank you to everyone who came out to support FFG and CCC this weekend. Thanks to Gale and Clem, in particular, who stepped in with Q&As and met with fans. Gale, Clem and I will be at Big Cinemas tomorrow - TOGETHER! Yeah! for the 4:30pm show, so for any of you New Yorkers who haven't yet seen the film -- the 4:30 an...d 7 pm shows tomorrow night will be super fun! See you at Big Cinemas - 239 E. 59th St.
I have just gotten home and as I eat dinner, I am scrolling down my Flist in LJ and have come accross a post someone made about a post in IMDB about gilrs chasing Gale down and about all the flash photography being done when Gale was doing the Q/A. BAD BAD BEHAVIOR GUYS ON BOTH COUNTS!!!!
But let me just address the Flash photography issue from a filmmaker professional point of view. I have been up on the stage in the theater to do 3 Q/A's before. 2 were for my films in the Atlanta Film Festival and the other time was to do the second Q/A for Gale's movie The Unseen at the Atlanta Film Festival after Lisa F. had returned to NY and they decided to show The Unssen again and do a second Q/A. Lisa emailed me and asked me to do it.
Now here is the point. When you are watching a film in the theater, the lights are dimmed. When you are doing a Q/A usually not only are the theater lights on you but also the front stream lights at the front of the stage and they are directly on you. You are already blinded by all this light and very very hot from all the heat coming off the lights, if you are up on the stage for any length of time.
So between the stream lights, the main lighting and the heat of the lights, I am sure Gale was already hot and blinded before anyone started adding to this with all the flash photography. I know I have been there. So please do not add to the discomfort of an actor by doing this, Gale or any actor you see at a theater Q/A.
To top it off, most theaters have a strict NO PHOTOGRAGHY ALLOWED policy so come on guys. chill on the flashing photos.
Okay I have said my thoughts on this.
Here is your update from Fay about last night. Now I am off to get ready and go and teach 4 classes to 60 Teachers. I am pumped!!!!! Talk to you all soon.
Fay Ann Lee: Wow, what a night! I did my first preview of Ching Chong Chinaman and Falling for Grace opened at Big Cinemas in NYC to a sold out 7pm show. Thank goodness Gale Harold was there to represent the movie. Apparently, he did a great Q&A and will continue to do so while I am previewing the play.
Sorry Guys I have been in meetings all day and am home for 1 hour and then back for another meeting. So did not get to post this earlier. but it has now been posted in FFG facebook & at various places online but I will post it here and in the FFG LJ anyway.
Update: Q&As. Gale will be doing Q&As after the 4:30pm showing and 7:00pm showing tonight, after the 4:30pm showing tomorrow, and the 4:30pm showing on Sunday. Those of you who have already bought tickets for tomorrow at 7:00pm can come early and catch the Q&A for the 4:30pm show.
I hope you all had a great weekend and a nice Valentine's Day. Several of you have PMed me about when Fay might be letting folks know about the Prizes. I have emailed her today asking her this question and sending her the info for one person that had a problem with their FFG DVD order.
I will let you know when she emails me back.
I hope you all are enjoying your FFG DVD's that are arriving in your mailbox now. LOL!!! Although I had a screener copy of FFG on DVD, Fay sent me a copy of FFG too as she was sending all of yours out. She sent a nice note, the film strips and it is signed by her and Gale.
I have just received a short email from Fay answering questions and giving info so I thought I would get it out to you all tonight. Here is what she said:
I am sending this quick email to answer the questions and give you some information.
In answer to the question:
"Can you please ask Fay about the sales of FFG for European distribution that she announced at the Asia Society event?"
"I believe our sales agent has sold to a few territories in Europe for
television - Italy for sure, and a few others but I'll have to find out from
In answer to the Question about Pay Pal:
"No paypal payment.
FFG will open in NY at Big Cinemas on 59th Street between 2nd and
3rd Avenues on Friday, March 19th." I will announce on the website by the end of the week. It is Weird but true.
