Yes I did.
Q - "I spoke to the guys at the Force.Net the other day, they said to say hello when I spoke to you, so the guys at The Force.Net say hi."
A - "Absolutely, they're great guys."
Q - "They are, I was on the Force Cast the other week with Jimmy talking about Star Wars: A Musical Journey."
A – "My friends were at that, I really want to see that."
Q - "It's fantastic, when it gets to the States you've got to go, it's absolutely amazing."
A - "How long did it play there for?"
Q - "It was only the two nights, the Friday and the Saturday a couple of weeks back but the plan is to take it into Europe and move it further afield and then get it to the States late summer I think. But it's back in the UK November. Apparently Lucas was there on the Saturday night. Very cool.
So let's talk a bit about Fanboys, that's what the Star Wars crowd know you for. When did the idea for Fanboys first germinate?"
A - "I first heard about the project online in 1998 on Harry Knowles website Aint-it-Cool News. I was a student at New York University and I was a huge Star Wars fan, and it just sounded like a cool project.
A few years later I was in post-production on another feature and I got introduced to the writer, I got involved and spent a few years developing it, putting the cast together. It was a side project. It didn't take years of constant developing to get it into position."
