Spiderwick Screening!

Last night the Tippett crew on Spiderwick was treated to an early screening of the movie! This was a congratulatory gift to us working so hard on the film, and it's pretty darn cool and rare for this to happen, it was a special treat. Thanks to Mark Waters and the Spiderwick Production! The films producer and director Mark Waters were there to introduce the film to us, and we got to watch it at ILM's digs in the Presidio at the Premier Theater, Letterman Digital Arts Center.

I wasn't really ready to see the film yet... but since I had never been into the Presidio, and never been or seen a film at the fancy Premier Theater (Where ILM holds dailies every Friday) I had to go!

I can't really say much about the movie until it's released, but I for one enjoyed it! Better than expected even! They showed it to a real test audience the night before and it scored very well, got a lot of laughs, especially after a few of our shots, which is always a great complement!

I've heard some say it's a cross between The Never Ending Story and Gremlins, so that's pretty sweet right there, that's all I'm gonna say.

Once again, The Spiderwick Chronicles will be released in February of 2008.
