  • Alright ladies and gentlemen! Let me know what you think of this holiday special, is this an acceptable podcast? Are these bits and pieces interesting? Let me know in the comments!

      This was totally acceptable! I liked getting to know you guys a little (again) and hearing about your aspirations more in depth than usual. Things seems pretty bleak here in LA and it’s nice to hear other filmmakers with similar aspirations but with different experiences and knowledge! I hope we all get to work together at some point (even though I don’t think Timothy likes my writing very much) – and happy holidays guys!

      • Happy Holidays, Alex! I honestly haven’t given your writing a fair read so I can’t say I like it or not yet. I did really like 3 Guys, A Girl, and a Demon, though, so there’s hope for us. I wish that movie didn’t already exist. I’d totally work with you on something like that.

          Funny you should say that… It’s actually just a small snippet of a feature I wrote (and am sort of on again off again re-writing) — I didn’t send it to you because for the most part it’s a haunted house movie and it sounds like you’re already making one of those ( “Toy Box” or something like that?)
