  3. John Wardlaw says:

    Winning the Best Animated Comedy at Dragon*con was an honor. It was awesome just to be part of the film festival. There were so many great films I wish I could have seen them all. Yamasong was amazing, Skylight is a personal favorite from other festivals, Hands off was Hilarious, When Jesus Came To Town had a great Film Noir Feel (And Claudia Christian!!!), Sunday Punch was very Pulp Fiction in style and then of course you have Zombies, Barbie and Voltaire. Of course there are so many more and they were all good.

    I commend all the film makers on a job well done. Great Films everyone!!!

  4. I fitting don´t see movies evolving, For me it´s same the old movies, without the unit bailiwick situation were more change. They had grade.
