dollars what can i do and what can can possibly be done in i do bartering it is a lot of different things sure that you 'em that you do so it came from that kind of experiences and being around a lot of different arm festivals and conferences and stuff like that so that's where i i've seen the big conferences where they had the connections to get the million dollars sponsorships and stuff like that don't have that connection yet yeah yet still is there anybody out there just yeah just come this way but i am seeing the the smaller conferences and how they had made their conference i'm happen

inspiration she's a writer 'em terry clock but she doesn't go by terry clock like than or something like that i'm not her pet name i went to see her weeding somewhere in green point and it was like wait a minute we have black haro where we talk about the troops and so forth like if you watched aparna walk and then there's this other part what about the trauma that that people have went through science oh fats black friday we've never discussed it on that level so we have different films that i speak to that 'em purpose to horn wars on amazon it's amazing documentary you mentioned about the history of black car one of one of which the high point to content has what you guys are showing a man and a yeah it's really good at so i mean i i subscribed to shutter oh but that's how i saw it and a we had a graveyard sister was on a sort of ember a spin off though we had a scream squad and so a gas like a who's shoes when she produced so yeah it's it's really good though it's it's really well done and very comprehensive you know they're not really hot and so yeah yeah but it goes all the way back to the beginning of guys yeah anyway it's it's it's really worth seeing and 'em is she gonna be there at the at the show no she we don't have however no api get that for next year i have some other stuff that yeah it's it's it's too bad only people who have shutter concede that little get a wider release you know but it's really good yes and that's and that's i think the job of 'em like being train also like as a arm where we call it a not not like a scholar but is the preservation of films and knew it and then also get it out to the community and they let the community know about it at interact with and that is just not just the first run of it of a film but you continue to have it throughout throughout like another ten years or so far have that preservation of that film so it's it's multiple jobs at the same time you're sure i want you just like i want the community to see this film like see this film it's like loss history you need to know it yeah well so now that you have all this background like you have all this academic experience all his life experience all this convention experience what advice would you give the people who wanna kind of being the same space issue or even touch those spaces are involved people in an event like this i would tell them 'em belgium community 'em if there's a particular area that you're have a passion for seahorses 'em in that same area and will build a relationship with them so that they can come aboard with you see your vision and supported that's what i would start offers i have some another thought say the you know like what advice would you give people who wanna kinda do the same things i wanna know how could they get better into the position in their in their fields in pop culture there's a friend 'em in new orleans that data he closes blurred fast and it was like just do it at eight i could see that he was disappointed with the first one like get on get on get on the horse to the second one stop don't stop it it you have that feeling always because it could be money it could be time make it'd be so many issues that might you could say convince you for doing this is like i i call it my best friend's wife and they'll give me like nah you guys do it or okay calm down in refocus and get get the next one time so many levels to it gotcha gotcha serb yawn like money what are some of the biggest challenges input in order convincing the biggest challenge is 'em not having the name personally like i my name is known in certain circles but go up to a celebrity that can get ten thousand twenty thousand and i don't have tended twenty dollars and to give to that so celebrity that has been like a frustration because you know once you get the celebrity that level to the convention and then you just move up to another status so i think that's one 'em stumbling block that i will get over you know soon got you got you so if people wanna learn more about blurted economies right around the corner but people wanna learn more where should they go 'em blurred city con dot com and order in social media is just blurt city b l e r d the city city do advocate tickets are free it is tickets there yeah we have different on three levels on i think i still have the early bird passed up there yeah i
