Lights, Cameras and Plenty of Action
Mom is moping and Shuga D is dragging his tail. MaGa came. They saw. And now they are worn slap out, yet sad to see it go. This year's MaGa only proved that it keeps going up a notch. So, what were Mom's highlights?
Was it driving to the airport with Bright Blue and Texas T to pick up actor, special guest and downright swell Maconite Jack McBrayer? Was it the fact Shuga hauled their bikes downtown so they could pedal in between the Douglass and Cox Capitol Theatres? Was it the moment the lights went down and the audience cheered, clapped and whistled during the College Hill Corridor video trailer? Or was it the indie films, visiting filmmakers, friendly after-parties, bustling downtown restaurants and dedicated friends who work hard to make this festival possible? Or was it just our hometown of Macon, whose community now lays claim to an artistic, happening, international film festival?
Who knows . . . but if we learned one thing this weekend, unicorns do exist every now and then.
