This past weekend, at the It Came From Lake Michigan Film Festival, I had the pleasure of awarding a plaque to Alison Richards, winner of the 2007 Generation: Gamerz Videogame to Film Contest.  Alison won the award for her treatment of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

With an award ceremony recognizing celebrities like Mark Borchardt, Uwe Boll, and Lloyd Kaufman, Alison was in interesting company.

Other attendees at the festival were Larry Thomas, better known as the Soup Nazi from the television show Seinfeld, local politician Ted Kanavas, the Wisconsin state senator who sponsored the bill to direct funds to incentive programs designed to bring film-making to the state, and a guy who was displaying his plans for homesteading the moon and Mars.

It was an interesting event to say the least.  There were a number of tables set up by independent film companies and, of course, screenings.  I even tried to take in a film while there (other than the two screenings of Spencer Halpin's: Moral Kombat), but probably would have been more entertained by checking out the evil puppet show instead of suffering through Dork of the Rings.
