Great Turnout for CCJ at GIFF

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Click Clack Jack had a wonderful turnout for the screening at the Gasparilla International Film Festival (GIFF) in Channelside Cinemas.  The film translated amazingly on the Digital Theatre System Channelside runs.  We could hear all of the kids who were watching cheer for our hero & laugh at the Baron’s thugs.  Everyone seemed to have a good time.  Ryan, Keith & I held a discussion after the film & received many great questions & kudos on our work.  Many wanted to know when the next film for CCJ was to come & we reassured everyone that it’s being worked on as we speak.  Click Clack is having a great run in the festival circuits including the Macon Georgia Film & Video Festival (MAGA) which ran from February 19th to the 22nd in historic downtown Macon.  Thanks again to everyone who came out & supported the film!
