Just your normal October 'round here.

It's been quite a nice ride this summer and fall. We just wrapped the Clay Aiken National Inclusion Project Gala. It was an extraordinary time, producing two videos profiling special needs children and creating a very emotional video on the need for inclusion. Videos will be forthcoming in the coming weeks.

On the indie film scene, our short, FRAME, continues to do well on the international festival circuit. Film festival submissions continue to go out. we even have begun to get requests to submit from festivals. A good feeling for sure. Frame will be seen this weekend in Seguin Texas for example. If you haven't seen it, here it is, in its entirety, for you to enjoy online;

Now, the other little something we have been working on is ready for your eyes. Ben Pickle, the story of one boy, one summer day and one incredible imagination. Again, here's the whole thing, the Sweet Gherkin cut;

We are in the process of getting film festival submissions out on this one as well. Discussion for a sequel has already begun. It's exciting because big film industry names such as Spike Jonze, Tim Burton, Chris Jones, and Robert Rodriguez have all shown no interest in this film.

I hope you enjoy these two beautiful pictures. Very different, but similar in many ways.

Sunday Delima

I have been asked by IMDB to post trailers or complete films online. I like this idea, folks can watch my shorts right there. The delima is, where do I put my films? YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, IMDB? All of these, some of these...

At this moment I am leaning towards posting my shorts everywhere people want them. Vimeo is my site of choice, best quality, easiest access. But YouTube has the longest reach to the world, most people, like it or not, still go to YouTube first.

Then there is the cool factor of faceBook. Friends can comment and it really spreads like wild fire. So I like that too.

Vimeo and IMDB have a hip factor. Then there are specialty sites like Shooting People, Ticklebooth, Squiglebooth...oh my.

Here's my Veronica Always page on IMDB -
Here's my Mad Tea Party page on IMDB, I posted the "Meet Lora Pendleton" portion of the doc on there -
