This is it! Last night in Westwood Village, we had the World Premiere "Yellow Carpet" screening of the "Simpsons Movie" at long last. It was a huge gala night with a marching band, limos, the whole nine yards! After seeing the final cut of the movie(God knows, we had SO many different cuts of this film, it's a miracle seeing the thing finally DONE...) We all went over to the Wadsworth theater grounds for a massive after party, full of all kinds of activities, photo ops, dancing, bars, food and drinks. This was probably the biggest Simpsons event we've thrown , and I've been working on this show since the 2nd season! There were plenty of famous faces in attendance as well, some that I got to see: Joe " Fat Tony" Mantegna, Olympian Michelle Kwan, Kevin Smith, Marisa Tomei, Masi Oka from "Heroes", as well as our very own Matt Groening and illustrious Supervising Director of the movie, David Silverman, Homer himself, Dan Castellaneta, and all of my friends and crew members who slaved away at this film at a breakneck pace to get it done. And in record time for an animated feature film! I love you guys! My girlfriend Laurie and I had the best time, and I hope folks will like our little film when it opens this Friday! Go check it out! Woo Hoo!
