Peanuts and Popcorn (Part III): Cannes!

Hey everyone!

I just got some GREAT news from Walter Ate A Peanut director Robin Willis. You can probably tell what it's about, but just in case you haven't figured it out from the subject line, I'll let acting diety William Shatner preface Robin's email.

Now that that's over with, here's the official word:

Dear Robin,

We are pleased to announce the selection of your film “Walter ate a peanut” among the 10th finalist for the Amazon Contest.

Short Film Corner - Festival de Cannes
Palais des Festivals - Niveau 01, Allée 14
Esplanade Georges Pompidou
06400 Cannes

So... wow. I mean really, WOW! Before you ask... no, I'm not going to be headed to the south of France to attend the screening. The thought crossed my mind... but my next film (My Soul To Take, written and directed by Jason and Todd Freeman) is shooting during the festival... so even if I had the money to get over there, I really couldn't.

Still, I have to say... it's pretty amazing.

New Animus Cross Interviews Posted

Hey Everyone

Pop on by to see Trish's behind-the-scenes interview segment, with series creator A.L. Steen and Producer/ Editor/ Series Star David Steen. Mercedes Rose was good enough to conduct the interview on the banks of the Columbia river in Portland - more details are given about the shooting of the first four pilot episodes, and some hints are given about what to expect from the next series, shooting in mid-June!

Give it a look...
