Behind-the-scenes of Black Cloud.

City Hall!

Yesterday, Austin Mayor Steve Adler recognized ‪#‎EMSWeek‬ with an official proclamation. I was tremendously honored that Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services decided to show the trailer for Black Cloud.

I don't know if I imagined it but it seemed like the crowd got intensely quiet once the trailer got rolling. I was pretty nervous. It's odd. Having made this trailer and seen it countless times, it's easy to forget whether it works or not. Seeing it in front of a crowd for the first time made me see it with fresh eyes, and what that did to me was make my hands all tingly.

When I drove from Alex's accident scene to the hospital, I distinctly remember my hands literally going numb. It seems like any time I think intensely on the accident, there's some echo of that. Hence, tingly hands.

I think the audience got it. It's hard to explain in words how important EMS is to a community. You kind of just have to see it and hear it from them, and I think the trailer did that effectively. I hope the movie does, too.

It was a tremendous honor, and I continue to feel so lucky to get to do this.

Thank you to my good friend Bryan C. Parker Photography for documenting the event for us! Go hire him!
