Tomorrow, or rather, later this morning, we're be in the second day of shooting for "Duel." The first day was more of a dressed rehearsal. Using tape. I think we'll get rolling this time. Yes, taking another break from editing weddings.

Yeah, I'm a little behind on the news, so I'm flooding the stupid blog with news. "YOTH" was rejected from the Vancouver Asian Film Festival for next year. I guess being the only Asian in a goofy ass comedy didn't cut it. Interestingly enough, I have not received the same letter for "Victim." They usually send it all out at once to depress me. Oh, with the money that I'll get from Victim, I'll have to recover from all these submission fees I've been sending out to film festivals. Yeah.

In other news, "Authorship" is now officially on Page 112 of the Book of Genres, a textbook compilation of sorts for the Sixth College in California. Apparently the professor at the college thought my script was amusing or something, so now it's mandatory reading material in a core program for all incoming students. Sure, it's a in-house publication, but it's still a sweet deal to be picked from near obsurity and be published in a smart-people textbook. No money, just a little pat on the back from an institution.

More news, Victim has really gained a tremendous amount of momentum since we got it sent into In addition to being a finalist (we got some cool gear, Cody has the Serial Psycho Killer T-shirt of course) and a Honorable Mention at the Seattle Times 3 Minute Masterpiece, both links which I would add but are unable to, I've gotten a letter from UrbanChillers which wants to develop a 13 episode series which are half hour long, and feature Victim as one of the shorts. More importantly, we'll be receiving a little bit of money for our troubles. Sweetness!

Here are the latest news: I HAVE FINALLY COMPLETED YEAR OF THE HORSE! I know, Brendon was like, "Don't joke around like that, or I'll have to murder your dog." Okay, I'm stretching the story a little. I don't have a dog. Anyway, it was the deadline of Projections Film Festival in Bellingham, WA that got me to ditch my newfound profession of Wedding Videographer (Please call for rates) to dedicate one day to scoring the film with royalty free music. I submitted the film to Projections, and now we're just waiting. In the meanwhile, I will have to con Dansen into doing the publicity, because I just can't find the time to do so. Besides, he owes me a few favors after he's been tossing my name and address around town... We're shooting for a local release at Pickford before Projections, just for the cast and crew and the generous donating public who will grace us with their money... er, presence. Will keep an update on that.

Alright. I'm trying out blogs because I've been very bad in updating these pages, and since I spent a huge amount of time compiling all this, I'd hate to see it all go to waste because I've been horrible in the upkeep. So, the blogs are to keep me in check. And so forth.
