Over 80 people came to the UCSF Cole Hall Auditorium screening of Autumn Gem this evening. There was a great mix of relatives, family friends, college buddies, and a whole contingent from UCSF. Thanks to Zhiyong Yang and his crew at UCSF for organizing the successful screening. The pizza was especially a big hit with the crowd; I can’t believe all the pies were eaten tonight!
I wish all of our screenings could be held in a facility like Cole Hall Auditorium. The sound system was great, and every seat in the house could see the movie as it was meant to be seen — big and colorful! Rae and I gave a short presentation on the genesis of Autumn Gem. After two years of hard work, we’re happy to start sharing it with the rest of the country. Our next stop is this coming Wednesday at Santa Clara University. Days later, we’ll be trekking out to Wisconsin for the start of a month-long, sixteen stop tour of Autumn Gem. We’ll be going from the aforementioned Wisconsin to Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Boston, New York, and finally to Pennsylvania. Of course, we’ll be updating on this web site along the way. Tell your friends and family in those areas about Autumn Gem!
