Projections Film Festival has once again eluded us of an award. Hopes were high, and we were let down by the announcement (although we do believe that a better film did win over us. If any of the other films had won, we might've killed ourselves on the spot.) but nonetheless, we continue to enjoy our good run of Victim. Universal Studios are currently in contract with Urbanchillers Films to possibly release our short film through a 13-episode, half hour program. They say it's an international release, but we'll see how that goes. At least we'll be seeing some money from it.

The screening at the Pickford Cinema however, was overwhelmingly positive. The screening started off with a few giggles, which I think happens a lot because people are so accustomed to spoofs and cynical humor that anything presented as serious takes a while to sink in. But once the shooting occurs, people's attention was fixated, and we got a good scare from our sole scary part, and the ending left a few people behind us saying, "Whoa." That was a very good showing.

Also got good, though limited reviews from the local press. The Herald recommended us for viewing.

Oh well, better luck next year. I'm thinking we should just shoot films and overwhelm the festival next year. Me and Cody will wipe them all out.

Year of the Horsewas screened to a small but enthusiastic crowd of well-wishers and good friends, to much positive results and acclaim. There was much dispute as to why Projections Film Festival did not pick for it to be shown or screened at their festival, and the other thing we could come up with was that it was simply too unconventional for them. They couldn't take it all in at once. At any rate, everyone did a tremendous job, and I want to thank, in alphabetical order, Maralise, Lisa, Lindsey, Brendon, Jenn, Sean, Eva, Dansen, and Rob for their super job at acting and help in this little narcissistic project of mine. You guys are my sunshine.

As for copies, you guys will be receiving them soon, just have to get around to it. Anyway, that's the latest.

Pretty soon, there will be a lot of news concerning the pilot of a local Bellingham General Interest TV show, called the Hamster Report.

Stay tuned, and thanks again for all your support.
