Watching Feufollet at the New Orleans Film Fest! #NOFF2016

Feufollet at the New Orleans Film Fest

Feufollet at the New Orleans Film Fest

I was SO excited to watch my music video “Feufollet” on the Entergy Giant Screen! It was an official selection at the 2016 New Orleans Film Festival.  Look at this amazing company of Family Friendly Animated Shorts!

The Boy Who Learned To Fly (Moonbot)
Circles (Ma’agalim) (Uri Lotan)
“Feufollet” (me!)
Mosquito: The Bite of Passage (Teng Cheng, Brian Vincent Rhodes)
Moom (Tonko House)
Little Shimajiro (Isamu Hirabayashi)

It was very cool to meet the other film makers, such as Limbert Fabian of Moonbot (The Boy Who Learned to Fly) and Brian Vincent Rhodes  (Mosquito: The Bite of Passage).  We took part in a Q&A after the film and fielded questions from a friendly, curious and supportive audience!

How I wish I could have had the company of Santiago Germano and Gustavo Wenzel, the amazingly talented animators who created “Feufollet” (and Santiago illustrated The Little Mouse Santi). I hope I represented them well.

I did have the marvelous company of some of the best friends and family in the world! Thanks to my husband Dave, son Louis, and to my brother Marc and sister-in-law Gina and to Annabel for coming to the fest with me!

Family at the fest!

All the way from Shreveport, my brother Marcus and sister-in law Gina. And my husband Dave, son Louis, and niece Annabel.

And to my delight, just before the lights were lowered and the films began, some of my Confetti Park Players sprinted into the theatre…. It was a wonderful surprise!!!

And here we are after the film showings.

LYRICS:

In a boat, in a swamp, in the darkness
All around you is the night
Creatures jumping, night birds calling
When you see a flickering light

You think it could be a lantern
On some friendly neighbor’s trawl
Or the porch light on a swamp house
But it’s not friendly light at all

Chorus:
Don’t follow the Feufollet
Don’t follow the Feufollet
Lest you both should fade away

Pawpaw gave a warning to me
Don’t follow the Feufollet
Don’t get tricked by those lights in the sky,
They will lead you far astray

The swamp has many dangers
Use your wits, you’ll be OK
Trust the rats, the snakes and the gators
Before you trust the Feufollet

How will I know it Pawpaw?
What shall I do when I see?
When those flickering lights start to call to you
Do not follow, ma cherie.

It’s a will o’ the wisp, a trickster
Gives false comfort in the night
Stay close to the course you know in your heart
Or do not move ’til morning light.
