We had a great turnout for the cast/crew party at Manuel’s, and everyone got to screen the movie and take home a DVD. Thanks to everyone for joining us!

More festival submissions mailed out:

  • USA Film Festival
  • Tallahassee
  • Berkshires (near my wife’s hometown)
  • Rome (GA)

Soon we’ll enter into the acceptance/rejection phase, as the notifications start to come in. I’ll keep everyone posted.


For those of you who asked, here’s “Skankobite”, our white trash horror short.

And from Allen, “The Screenwipe Guide to TV — A wry look at what goes in to making your precious telly programs”

Thanks to the hard work and skills of editor Ron Milestone, the “final cut” of Day Labor was completed in time to submit for the Atlanta Film Festival.   With a great assist from Melo, Tek, and YamNa of Roqmon Music, who huddled together for a late Sunday night production session, and put together some killer tracks to replace the temporary music.

Now the money starts to fly out the door as the festival submission lottery begins.  In addition to Atlanta, entries have gone out to:

  • Cannes (we can dream)
  • CineVegas
  • Houston
  • Seattle True Independant (STIFF)
  • Rhode Island
  • Athens (Ohio)

Also in the works: cast and crew premiere party at Manuel’s.  I’m looking at early February — as soon as I get the DVDs back from the duplicator.
