By Jason Eade and Adele King

Today we had a very nervous start.

We eat a lot of cereal and found ourselves eating it with a fork by mistake!

We travelled to the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford to present two screenings, a presentation and a Question and Answer Session.

It was Adele’s first time On The Road, and Jason says that even though she was a little shy, she performed admirably!

The Question and Answer session was hard because we couldn’t hear everyone plus they asked some very tricky questions. But we did well, pulled through, and had a nice coffee afterwards.

We think that the audience members were into film making and showed a lot of interest in next year’s Oska Bright Film Festival – we look forward to getting films from Hereford for 2013!

Many thanks, too, to the four Committee members from Wye Valley NHS Trust who were so welcoming and helpful. They really helped us out with our massive audience!
