"Pics or it didn't happen," you say? Well feast your eyes on this gallery (or this copy in Picasa) to experience what attendees did last night. Or for the lazy just scroll down past the jump to see lower resolution snapshots below. To answer your questions in order
- Yes ... Those are remote controlled flying sharks.
- Yes ... Audience members were given the chance to flying them before the screening.
- Yes ... They prowled the theater occasionally getting in front of the projector and casting a menacing shadow during the film.
- And yes, I'm not actually sure how Clinton is getting them down (I'm picturing a BB gun, lasso, or a giant butterfly net - or maybe more flying sharks, what could go wrong ...).
It seemed the audience I saw it with last night couldn't have agreed more. And I'm assuming all of them weren't like the couple in front of me who were hedging their bets while on the entrance line via a flask and a smoked substance that has only been legal in Washington state since the last election. Well, probably at least 1/3 of them weren't like that.
Enough of my yammering. Photos below. Huge thanks to Clinton and SIFF for a great evening out which I sorely needed this week. Oh, and to Clinton for letting me believe that the flying sharks were actually my idea from an earlier tweet. ;-)
If you want your own flying shark to repeat this experience in the privacy of your home, this company shockingly will sell them to almost anyone it seems.
