48 Hour Film Screening, Afterparty, and Aftermath!

So it took me a little while to finally recover from Friday Night's 48 Hour Film Screening and afterparty enough to blog about it.  So here is how it all went down!

I met with my crew at Chinese University to head on down to the screening together.  I decided that I needed to look as Pimp as possible.  So I wore my Chinatown gangsta shirt and my Steve McQueen badass leather jacket.

Once our crew was all together, we were ready to walk the red carpet.

We managed to get there early enough to get good seats.

World famous actor/singer Jackie Chow and actress extraordinaire JuJu Chan were two rows behind us.

The house was packed by the time screening started.  I took this picture while there were still a few empty seats.

The screening of the flics was glorious and the crowd roared for our film "King of Bullshit."  Good to know the surprise ending worked.  I went up to do a little Q&A and tells some funny anecdotes.

After congregating with our fearless leader, Prof. James Kenny, to talk about the other flics and how proud we were of all the hard work paid off on our flic, we were off to the afterparty.

The afterparty at Drop was off the hook!  Hung out with our fearless leader.

Toasted with Michael Chan, web series and martial arts megastar, and Spencer Douglass, the man who knows everyone in Hong Kong.

With James and Arne, mutli-talented artist extraordinaire.

Shot a nice ad pic for Asashi should they want to use it.

As the drinks continued to flow, the slow decent into complete anarchy hastened.

I got to chill with JuJu Chan, Actress and model supreme, before the alcohol brought out a less reputable side of me.

After a few beers, I accepted my first of many Lycee Martini's offered by the awesome Ivy Lam, organizer of the 48 Hour Film Project in Hong Kong and Writer for the Hollywood reporter.

That seemingly lead me down the road to trouble as, after that, I started drinking Lycee martinis like they were fruit punch.

Finally this was the last picture taken before I realized the entire earth was spinning horizontally.

After that, I decided I had to get out of the place, quick.  I don't remember many of the details after that, and I don't have any picture evidence, but I could swear I made my way through the dancefloor and out the club while downing somersaults.

I managed to get outside and, in the nick of time, remembered that I left a bag of stuff with the guy in charge of the guestlist.  It seems like he must have seen how green or purple my face was, because I distinctly remember him saying "Hold it!  Hold it!"  As I passed him the collection ticket. 

And I did manage to "Hold it" the first time.  But after taking two steps towards the street, I found that, even with my best efforts, I had a hardtime holding it a second time and I ended up decorating a tree or bush or something right outside the club. 

At that point, I still felt like I was doing somersaults as Michael and Arne both helped me to find a cab.  I also distinctly remember hearing that I had somewhat decorated Michael's shirt, which I am far more embarrassed about than having decorated the tree.

By sheer will of determination, I managed to tell the cab driver the right address and make it back into the apartment.  I'm sure you can imagine how the rest of the night went.  I only have vague recollection of stripping in the living room, hugging the toliet and my a few hours of my wife trying to nurse me back to health by feeding me a baked potato and mineral water.

Alas, I have been suffering for all the excesses ever since, but all in a days work when partying like a rockstar.  At least I didn't wake up handcuffed to a guy in a tiger costume... hehehe (big ups to Robot Entourage).

Thanks Arne, I do have to give a lot of credit to Jona for the pics though. He took half or more of them and if not for his fiddling with the settings of my camera, we might not have captured thee moments as clearly as we did. hehe Seems his cinematography award was well deserved.
