The fest replies are starting to trickle in.....
first we got two NOs (well, really we got no news by the "notify by" date, which i'm pretty sure = NO).....i have to say--"OUCH".... i was kinda surprised that it bothered me, cuz i'd like to say i don't care what other people think of it, we did it for our own enjoyment of doing it....but it actually bothered me.
then we got a YES! from FESTIVUS a festival in Denver that we applied to cuz we wanted to have the film show where Justin's little sister lives......we are SUPER excited to share our first fest experience with Jenna and Chris.
then another no.....(Uhuuhhh!)
then yesterday i e-mailed one of the no-replys, HUBBUB (Las Vegas Animation Fest) and they actually wrote back (!) today and said, "sorry we're running late, but we want your film....."
so now we're up to 2 YESs.
meanwhile, i'm avoiding making the TRAILER by painting resin statues of all GLD's characters that our friend/amazing artist Leo Gotlibowski cast of justin's sculpts. I'd like to have them done for our PREMIER (at the beautiful and historic landmark Rialto theater for friends and fam on January 18 @ 5:00)....I'll post pics of the painted statues soon. and justin's avoiding working on the website by sculpting one of the characters for our next short, which we are excitedly into preproduction on. .........good thing we don't have lots of time to sit around and worry about fest YESes and NOs (HA!).
