Cooperstown was an Amazing Weekend - 10.16.2009
Cooperstown was such an amazing weekend.
The time spent with Ron (Hank) Lucas as we traveled from Iowa to New York fell past and was just great. Nothing like jumping into a plane with Hank to bring back the Ghost Player memories of trips long past.
Curits Mack joined us from Florida and we hit the Hall of Fame, eager to see the sites, talk with filmmakers, and watch the other baseball films. What amazing flicks!
The filmmakers and festival organizers treated us well. Hank and Mac were a hit as they shared stories of baseball and of our travels as Ghost Players.
What an honor to have GHOST PLAYER shown as the last screened film of the festival. Once the screening was over and the audience questions were fielded, it was time to get ready for the awards ceremony. Hank and Mac participated in the Q & A.
The festival judges were complimentary to the project and treated it well. Rob Edelman had to withhold his comments as he was credited in the movie for the submitted stories he made to the movie's companion book, TRAVELS WITH GHOSTS AND OTHER TALES.
We didn't come home with the top trophy but being one of the runners up is still pretty sweet. Sounds like Iowa Public Television may run the movie again during Thanksgiving weekend. Also talked with a production and distribution company in Sydney, Australia to introduce the movie into the Australian/NZ markets.
Road trip, anyone?
