Carolina Parakeet World Premiere Photos / by AJ Briones

We're still on a high from our World Premiere at Fester LA, and would like to give a gigantic "THANK YOU!" to everyone who made it out, especially those that drove all the way to Downtown LA from as far as San Diego to be a part of it!  It means so much!

We got to hang out and catch up with so many people that helped make this all happen, as well as meet new folks and share stories with the other filmmakers in the festival.  My only regret is that there was so little time to have a really lengthy chat with anyone.

Seeing our film in a full theater was really a treat: It was great to hear the audience react to certain story beats, and the thunderous applause at the end of the opening sequence when the title card showed up is something I will remember for the rest of my life!

Big thanks to the Fester LA organizers; they really know how to put on a show!  Also, I can't thank Dave Wilkins enough for illustrating an amazing CP poster.  We gave some of these away at the theater and they were a big hit!  Of course, we wouldn't have a film to celebrate if it weren't for the amazing Cast and Crew, you guys are the best!  Photos courtesy of Jettleson Photography, Mary Isaacson, Mari Naomi and Yvonne Love.

Thanks so much for making our evening, and I hope that we get to do this again at another festival.

Go Team Carolina Parakeet!
