Omaha likes us!

I was a little heartbroken that I couldn't attend the Nebraska premiere of my Nebraskan-filmed-doc last night at the Omaha Film Festival. I would have loved to talk with the crowd and see the reaction in-person but unfortunately after spending a lot of money making a movie there's not always much left for airfare/hotel/etc. So I had to sit in Portland and watch from a distance. I was happy to read a mention in The Omaha Reader where Michael J. Krainak had some nice things to say:
...probably the two best, most unified shorts this bunch, Boaz Frankel’s Meet the Beetle and Brian Roma’s She’s Cool.
A paragraph or two later he added:
Be amazed at Frankel’s creativity in making the potential extinction of an insect seem more than relevant circa original schoolhouse musical theatre...
So thanks Michael! And is there anyone else out there who saw my film last night in Omaha? Let me know! I'd love to hear what you thought!

  1. That's terrific, Boaz. We at study group are swelling with vicarious pride and nachas.
