Arriving at the Venice Film Festival

Yup, I'm in Venice now. Screening of Kingyo is only 5 hours away. I'm a little excited.

Took a lot of videos yesterday, but alas, not that many photos. Will post videos when I return to Tokyo.

Here are some photos of me, Maiko the Producer and Rinto the Technical Producer / Postproduction Technician in the water taxi from the airport to Venice's Lido, where the film festival is held.

We arrived at the festival just when there was a 3D screening of UP. Saw Carl and Russell (from UP) and I think I caught a glimpse of John Lasseter, Pete Docter and Brad Bird. (they were all supposed to receive Lifetime Achievement Awards from the festival) I caught that on video too, will upload some other time.
