Report on the Toronto Launch of Peep

Posted by Hal

So it was a packed house last night as I chased the tail of peep, trying to keep up with my own fast paced presentation. The home town crowd was forgiving and appreciative, and it was great to see everybody. (Note to self, slow it down…)

This morning in my in-box I found the following very kind, poetic and unsolicited description of the evening, provided by the fantastic Chris Reed, coordinator of the This Is Not A Reading Series events:

“The story of your Facebook party (or lack thereof) was a lovely way to start to show. It  underscored the degree to which feelings of loneliness and alienation motivate people to seek out ‘peep pals’ in the first place. Your video was a wonderful mixture of the surreal and the sad. At several points it seemed as if you were chasing after a rabbit, trying to catch the ephemera of cyberspace long enough to catch the light.”

So here are some pictures of the launch, and, again, thanks to all! I’m off to take the kid to daycare. A few more posts (about the first day of documentary shooting – yesterday, of all days!) and more coming later today.
