napkincamXeni Jardin of Boing Boing has posted a report liveblogging the Los Angeles Revenge of the Sith premiere via "napkincam," which is to say she was prevented from snapping any shots with her camera phone so she doodled quick "shots" of the event on napkins. "Grab eyeliner from the purse and a napkin from the bar and -- voila! I will liveblog the evening's proceedings (with 3-hour delay) on the napkincam." There are a few interesting bits in her liveblogging, including the note that the "film" wasn't projected via actual film at all, but rather "digitally using projectors with Texas Instruments DLP chip." I knew Lucasfilm did this, but hearing it with such technical precision makes it more real somehow.

Perhaps best is the pre-screening speech provided by a "guy" from Lucasfilms . . .
