Hallo!! I’m really excited because in five days, I’m going to Berlin for the REC-Jugendmedienfestival, where ‘Can We Be Happy Now‘ will be playing on Friday! I’ll be there until the 16th, when I’ll fly over to Paris until the 22nd!!!
Excitement. Yes. Much! First time ever in Europe! First time ever trying to cram so much foreign language into my noggin! First time ‘Can We Be Happy Now’ screens internationally! First time I may run into gypsies… let’s hope not. MAYBE I’LL COME BACK WITH ONE OF THOSE GREEN HATS WITH A FEATHER! I’ll be equipped with my iPhone and Moleskine sketchbook, so I’ll post updates when I can! Wheeeee!
Actually, my name’s not Nancy, but we’ve all got a little Nancy inside of us! I was fortunate enough to animate on the documentary I Am Nancy, a film that reaches out to fans of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Much of the hype for the series is directed at Freddy– hey, so what about the good guys? What about Nancy, the strong female lead role that fights her fears? Heather Langenkamp (Nancy) speaks to her fans at horror movie conventions and learns that the attention isn’t just on the thrill of of the baddies– but rather how Nancy helped people find their own inner strengths to go out and conquer their “Freddy” in life.
