It's off to Sundance!

Submitted via, 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 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.
