The party featured two performances by musical guest, The Jenny Thing, and provided a live forum for filmmakers to network and ask any last minute questions before starting to create their films.
Both the Film Lab President, actor Jennifer Betit Yen, and Shootout Coordinator and former Film Lab intern, Shing Chung, gave welcoming remarks. Betit Yen challenged filmmakers to re-create their own narrative and Chung reminded them to have fun! Judge Ernest Abuba, Film Lab Vice President Daryl King, Film Lab Secretary Ray Lanuza, sponsor ScriptHop, and interns Katie Lam and Kira Bixby also provided inspiring remarks, insights and ideas. Their remarks are available on the Film Lab's online AAFL TV channel. Subscription is free at youtube.com/
