I found Eric's trailer after my friend Andrew Hyde Twittered that if he saw just one movie this year, it would be 'Everyone But You'.
After watching the trailer about 20 times. I dashed off a quick comment to Eric. Which lead to more comments. Then emails were exchanged.
Then lo and behold, I got to meet Eric and some of his friends and see his movie in person. My buddy Heather was with me and I cannot even do justice to Heather's description of Eric's movie, so I won't even try.
What I will say is that Eric (who just won Best Composer at the Jackson Hole Film Festival) is the real deal. He is honest, heartwarming, hilarious, immensely talented and tells one of the coolest/saddest/warmest stories I've ever heard thru his movie and soundtrack. He's been the #1 artist on my iPod for the last 3 weeks and I still am not close to being tired of his music.
The first time I saw the full-length movie, I laughed then cried then laughed some more. I've now seen his movie about ten times (yeah, I bought a copy of my own...me...the chick that doesn't buy DVD's and only has 3...make that 4...DVD's to her name). Every time it gets me, even tho I know it's coming. The range of emotion in his moving is amazing.
It's beyond awesome how much one chance encounter from an internet lead can enrich your life in ways you never thought possible.
Enjoy the trailer and the next time Eric has a showing in Denver, you will all hear about it ad nauseum. Cause I''l be counting the days, even tho I already own the movie.
Want your own copy of his movie or his CD or both? Smart move!! You can find Eric here
