Microfilmmaker.com critiqued the movie! Dig it!
Some warm-fuzzy tidbits:
"I absolutely love it."
"Classic indie filmmaking."
"A hilarious film."
Also, submissions are out to Slamdance, Seattle and CineQuest festivals.
In other exciting news, I just got back from a 40 day feature western film shoot. A River of Skulls, written and directed by Suza Lambert Bowser, and starring Kelly Nixon and Erik Rhea (all from TMO!)!
I was the director of photography! Excitement!

Submitted via withoutabox.com, paid for, packed, and ready to mail.
We had a clamshell case with our nice dvd wrap artwork ready to go, but it turns out Sundance is so eco-friendly, all they want is a dvd in a sleeve and a confirmation number. Not even the application! No superficial nonsense for them! (We did make a nice on-disc print though. I hope they won't disqualify us for wasting ink.) I look forward to the day when I can submit a film (video) via telepathy. Way faster than FTP.
We also mailed a copy to microfilmmaker.com- a great little site that provides professional critiques of Super Low Budget films. They gave Remote Control Grandpa an 8/10! AWESOME!

I said before that it was done, but I LIED.
NOW it's done.
The "Fine Tooth Comb" phase took a bit longer than expected, but fear not- every single tangle has been eradicated, and the bedhead successfully smoothed out. TOTALLY ready for the class picture.
Within the next 48 hours, our little 85 minute wonder will be on its merry way to Park City, Utah. That's right, we're submitting to Sundance. WHAT. Don't think we'll get in? Well THINK AGAIN; I've got a little secret up my sleeve. It's called AWESOMENESS, and this movie is literally exploding with it.
Normally I don't do this, but I'm feeling especially awesome right now, so I'm going to share a super secret with you.
RECIPE FOR AWESOME
- One part Cool
- One part Funny
- Two parts Hella
Beat on high for 12 months. Chill before serving.
