After years of anticipation we managed to make it happen! Unicorn Picnic Productions (Lynsey Dyer, Hilary Byrne, Sophie Dannison, Sasha Motivala, and I) tirelessly worked all summer to make our dreams come true. With pale skin and bags under our eyes by late September, October finally arrived and the movie spread its wings and flew away from Gregory Ln.
Well folks, we did it!
The world premier at the Boulder Theater was a triumphant success. Hundreds of people lined the streets the night of the show and the 850 seat theater was sold out nights before. To say the least it was one of the best nights of my life. Watching our hard work on the big screen with an audience of electric and captivated viewers went beyond my wildest dreams.
Hilary and I shared our excitement right before the show began, finally having a moment to understand the magnitude of our accomplishment. "Whoa, this is a big freakin deal!"
It has been a different kind of summer for me, having guided much less and worked in front of a computer much more. It was a dream job, and a real job, and now we can show the rest of the world what we meant by "Story of a skier girl".
The ladies that stood on this stage are women who have chosen to live a life a little less conventionally in pursuit of their passions and dreams. From skiers to filmmakers to editors to producers to volunteers to so much more, Pretty Faces is a job well done. It couldn't have happened without the support of so many, and will hopefully continue to touch the hearts of so many for years to come.
