A very good time in Orangeburg on Sunday evening.

Far out venue, as the film was shown in a planetarium. Yeah, those dome shaped theaters where they project the universe up on the walls and ceiling; however, this time around it was our Salton Sea documentary. Neat!

Then, the audience was nice mix of university students and others. The students were really thinking about the issues and implications of the goings on at the Sea, so there were a couple challenging questions, but I'm always game for a challenge and think I answered them well enough, if not very well. One never knows, as when you're doing a Q&A, it's hard to maintain a good perspective on yourself.

Afterwards, I had a chance to chat it up with a few folks, particularly, a nice young man who is considering moving out to LA after graduation to work in film, so he was wondering what the lowdown was on that megalopolis to the west. Moving to LA is always difficult, but there is is a wonder of opportunities there, so it's hard not to just give it a shot and see what happens.

I myself did LA for 8 years, which were all good, but given that there are so many interesting places in the world, it's hard to just stay in once place. Thank god for the road.
