This collaboration between the UCLA Film & Television Archive and Eventbrite
was an unmitigated disaster for me and apparently others as well.
I followed the link they sent me and it resulted in a black screen and no audio.
After an hour of farting around with it I gave up in disgust and went to spend
my time on something more productive.
I see Bob Cham <[log in to unmask]> had a somewhat similar NO-SHOW experience!
Next time UCLA might try something other than using VIMEO for their
"experience"... it would be nice if they did a MAKE GOOD for this flop so I and
others might be able to see what I/we didn't!!
Nothing like an hour's waste of time to brighten my day!!
