Hello fellow Movies Askew Filmmakers,
My Name is Steven Laflamme and I flew down to Hollywood California on Setp.6th, 2006 from Chelsea, Quebec, Canada. And I attended the Movies Askew Film festival. Where I sat in the front row at table in front of Jason Mewes for 6 hrs. and ate my 60.00$ Filet Mignon"(steak). I chose to eat that because I had been wanting to eat a steak for a year (because they do not serve steak in the backwoods of Quebec - we only have gamy food like elk or deer).
So I quite enjoyed my steak or rather I should say my "Filet Mignon" and then Kevin Smith came out on stage and opened up the evening.
I was living my Dream because I have been a big fan of Kevin Smith's since 1994 when Clerks came out. I quite enjoyed the 6hrs of short films as I chatted with the two women who sat beside me. One of whom was named: "Karen".
As a I mentioned Jason Mewes sat behind me the old time. And at one point Kevin was joking to Jason that he was too Hollywood to come up on stage.
I had a great time. And then at the Intermission I went up to Kevin Smith and Mattt Potter who were having a smoke and I introduced myself.
I told him about "Cigarettes&Superheroes" my short film which was a semi-finalist on this site. Was showcased for a month on "Movies Askew" and 4000 people hit my profile. And my other film: "My Dad (a true Story)" was a HIT for a crowd of 400 people at the National Archives in Canada this past February 11th, 2006
(you can google it/CFI(Canadian Film Institute).
Kevin Smith congradulated me on being a finalist in the "MOVIES ASKEW FILM FESTIVAL" and then I told him about my Aunt knowing the guy who wrote Speed starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock and how SHE is going to circulate my AWARD WINNING screenplay:"BABY ON BOARD©" in Hollywood for me and show it to the guy who wrote Speed, and Band of Brothers for: Executive Producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.
Kevin Smith got excited about my Aunt knowing the guy who wrote Speed and explained it to Mattt Potter. AND I QUOTE: Kevin Smith: “No, no he’s doing the whole thing his Aunt knows the guy who worte Speed.” END QUOTE.
I spoke to him for ten minutes and then he signed my copy of Clerks. I gave him a copy of my two "AWARD WINNING" short films on DVD: “CIGARETTES&SUPERHEROES” AND “ MY DAD (A TRUE STORY)” which can be purchased by e-mailing “Dead Squirrel Productions©” at email@example.com
