First off, thanks to everyone who came out to the premiere on friday. What a great feeling to get to show your work on a big screen for the first time. I hope everyone enjoyed the circus performers as much as I did!
If you pre-ordered a copy of the DVD at the show, I'll be sending those out today.
It's always a great feeling to launch a new film. I've done it many times before but this one was my first crack at a full-length climbing film since I graduated school so in many ways it felt like my first real premiere. There's more than a final grade on the line with Pure...
At the end of the evening when I returned home I was totally relaxed for the first time in months. I've finally let the film go out on its own and in doing so I can now focus my energy on other things. I went climbing on both Saturday and Sunday, and between the two days I came away with about 130 points of bouldering. It's crazy... as soon as the movie is done I literally feel ten pounds lighter!
for the next couple months I have to keep my head down and promote pure and support all the screenings coming up. I'll announce all the European dates soon and so the calendar will be quite full. come April I'll have a little down-time to train for Rocklands season before heading back down there for another season of FA's and hard repeats.
On wednesday I leave for Ethiopia for twelve days, then I'll be back here for a few shows then off to Europe for the Pure Tour. It's a busy time but I'm psyched to have this lifestyle. And as Nalle says in Pure... 'I wouldn't change it for anything'.
