'Liberal Arts' Screening yesterday in LA  
There was a screening of Liberal Arts yesterday for the New York Film Academy LA and Josh Radnor did a Q&A. No real info from the Q&A but here are some tweets about the screening:



Hopefully this means it will be ready in time for Sundance.

Also there is an article about the Bahrani film at the Daily Chronicle in Dekalb but there isn't really much about Zac. So just FYI.

Liberal Arts: 3.5 months from shooting to rough cut. It can be done.

DeKalb Daily Chronicle: “My answer now is, ‘I’m sure he’s back in California by now.’”

Haha. She clearly doesn't follow this blog or the Twitterverse.

While screening feedback has always be taken with a grain of salt, the location and organization who hosted this would seem to attract rather movie buffs than 'fans' which means hopefully the movie is indeed good.

I noticed it was at Warner Brothers. I wonder if he just rented the screening room or if WB is sticking its fork in this project. If so, that could mean a wide release.

Many non-WB things happen on the WB lot. It doesn't mean a lot.

In this case, the screening was hosted by the NY Film Academy... it had nothing to do with WB.

Just adding to what Bee said that there are oftentimes screenings, from different studios, held at studio lots for x,y or z.

I once attended a screening at Paramount studios for a non-Paramount pictures film.

So hopefully this is good news for Liberal Arts.

Just posted overnight on the IMDb message board for Liberal Arts:

"by JoshuaBeck (Sat Oct 22 2011 21:05:41) -- I saw the screening of this movie. Zac has a small but GREAT role in this film. Like nothing you've ever seen him do."

Aside from doing a favor for his new pal Radnor, I have assumed that this part must have attracted Zac because it gave him a chance to do something really different, a bit of a hoot. Looks like my psychic powers are working.

Looks like he's going to surprise a lot of people with really different characters next year. A cynical, oversexed young man in The Paperboy, a rebellious son in the untitled Bahrani film, and this mysterious cameo in Liberal Arts. So yay!

Not surprising to know he has a small role, but at least it's something different and people are liking it.

Wait how does Zac know this Josh Radnor? Were they like friends before this movie or something?

They met at the Maui Film Festival when Zac was there to receive his award last year

Oh okay, thanks! :)

Seeing as his part is pretty small, I have to wonder if when the movie comes out (like film festivals and such) if Zac will promote it or no, because he doesn't have a very large part in it.

P.S. What is his character like? I haven't heard much about what character he plays.

I wanna say someone said a while back ago that Zac's character is a "mystical hippie type."
