It was quite a privilege to attend the 10th anniversary screening of Bruce Almighty being that it was at the local Washington West Film Festival. A screening with a director Q&A from someone with any notoriety is not a common occurrence in the DMV, but Shadyac grew up in the area (graduate of J.E.B. Stuart) and is a regular at this particular film festival. Tom Shadyac is also not a typical Hollywood director. He lives in a mobile home and does generous charitable work. During his Q&A, he talked about the importance of story, and the dark side of the Hollywood industry. A very down to earth guy, he took the time to talk to everyone who came up to him. Even though I'm not the biggest Jim Carey fan, it was awesome to be at the event.
