Wow, congrats! Me and a buddy of mine are actually thinking about going. We don't have any films of course, but we would just like to go and scope everything out, meet people, and hopefully submit a film not next year, but the following year. Good luck to both of ya!

Holy cow! Just watched the trailer and read your bio. Guess where I'm currently sitting - in a computer lab down in Carbondale, Illinois. I'm actually enrolled in the cinema and photography department down here. I saw you had also left to go to Chicago and worked on a film up there. Is that from the internships offered? They had a meeting recently about interning in Hollywood, but it's $7000, so I'm going to wait until my senior year. Oh, by the way, nice trailer.

I got on it through a friend who got on it through an internship at panavision (before they closed here) that the school offered. So, kinda I guess.

An internship in LA is probably a good thing, but I don't think it's too hard to find paid work as a PA in Chicago. DP work? A little tougher.

Congratulations guys. Great work.

Justin, really enjoyed the web site and trailer. Chicago is a great city for independent film. Hundreds of talented, hungry actors, great crews, fairly easy access to equipment. I miss it terribly.

Best of luck to both of you at Sundance.

Thanks guys. I'm actually in Dallas right now shooting Tiger for Buick but when I get back I'll proivde more details about the film.

I'm going to be at Sundance for the whole time. I'm looking forward to it. I've been there with 3 shorts but never a feature. I think it's going to be a whole different experience for me.

As I said before, I would post some info about my Sundance film when it became available. The selection of our film is made more impressive by the fact that there are no "name" actors in it. In fact this film was the first time most of the actors had been in front of a camera. 

If you or anyone you know are planning on attending the festival, I'd love to see you at one of our screenings. Below is a link to our film's page and screening schedule on the Sundance website.
http://festival.sund....aspx?film=6578

Additionally, I have also been invited to speak on two panels at the festival. The first is:
PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY NOW
FRIDAY JANUARY 20, 11:00 a.m.
Digital Forum - Shorts Theater
Sundance Film Center, Main Street Mall

The second will be a panel for the film itself on Wednesday, time TBD.

One more film worth mentioning is a film called Thank You for Smoking, screening a few times throughout the festival. The film is directed by my good friend and frequent collaborator Jason Reitman and co-produced by my other close friend Dan Dubiecki. 

Anyone who might want to get together at the festival should email me so we can exchange contact info.

Oh and one more thing. I want to publicly thank David Mullen who helped me out during prep for the film by giving me some F-900 pointers. Thanks David!
