Not much value in this update, just me being me. Been talking into the microphone a lot about Groupers the last couple of weeks, way more than normal, trying to get the word out and generate a buzz.

Things are getting a little heated between myself and the distributor as far as minor adjustments on the poster goes, or aren’t going which would be a more apt description of how things are currently shaking out. A look behind the curtain of a frustrated individual who has lost some control of their project, that individual being me of course. ...…

When an earthquake is nothing more than a minor irritation and the fact that your film is screening in the prime-time spot for a festival in a major U.S. city doesn’t effect your mood in a positive direction, this can only mean one thing… the deliverables are reeking havoc on your mental well being. All this and more in the 5th week edition of ...…
