T.O.G.I Countdown

In roughly two hours (from when I'm writing this), TOGI will make its premiere at Sundance.
The Huffington Post and SproutBlog already has some articles up... and if you're free on the 25th, you can even get some tickets.

I'll post some of the first reviews when they start to come in.

ADDENDUM 1/22/09:
Well, not as much news as I'd hoped for - not necessarily a bad thing...
Indiewire had an interview with Kevin Willmott prior to the screening - and for a more personal view of Sundance, check out Making The Movie - John didn't work on TOGI, but he's a BUNKER HILL alumnus.

So far the only review that I've been able to find is this one - and it's lukewarm, at best.
Comments left by people who've seen the film are decidedly not.

Happy 2009!

OK, so I'm a couple of weeks late... oh well.

The first thing was finishing up the work on AU PAIR, KS -- on my end, that's mainly paperwork to go to the editor/director. Coming back, there was also my grandmother undergoing open heart surgery in late December... she's doing well, currently undergoing rehab therapy to build her strength back up. She should be back at home soon.

Then there's the prospect of finding more work. No idea when the next film job will come up -- in the meantime, there's polishing up some work for the next MICRO-FILM issue, to be published in March or April; and trying to drum something up using my prodigious assets.

This week will be the premiere of THE ONLY GOOD INDIAN at Sundance; so look for some links to show up about its reception. I have had a chance to see the film, but I'll wait until there's a local screening before writing about it.

And I think I'll be posting a bit more DVD stuff - there's a huge backlog of stuff to watch, so I may start working through that when time allows.

Hope your year is starting off well - though, to judge from my previous two postings, things aren't looking up in the near future.
