REMAINDERED screened today and received a very enthusiastic reaction from the audience. That was nice, but I have to say we're up against some stiff competition.

Unfortunately, our film didn't win any of the honors at derby city but I have to say that METH, the film that swept the short categories, deserved all the awards it snagged. I was very impressed by the movie and what they were able to achieve for $3000. Continue reading
