While heading out to breakfast on State street with my wife Jenny and our newborn son, I remembered that I'd been interested to check out this morning's Director's Panel at the Lombero Theatre. We were a bit short on time.
Jenny asked the right question: "Which directors are on the panel?" I flipped through the program schedule and gasped to discover that Brad Bird, Judd Apatow, Julian Schnabel, and Jason Reitman were all scheduled to speak! These directors are responsible for some of my favorite movies during the last few years. We decided that I'd do well to head over to check things out. Last night's red carpet event was fun nonsense, but now it was time for something substantial and educational. I braved the drizzle and walked swiftly.
But no such luck. "Director's Panel Canceled". I asked the fellow at the box office why, and he explained that, "Only one of the directors showed up. I'm not sure which one, but he's going to join the 2pm Writer's Panel." Several sheepish attendees were told that their paid tickets would automatically be refunded.
Hoping that 2pm will bring brighter skies.
