Hello, dear readers (few though you may be).

I have been rather busy for the last few days. I haven't written the next piece of "Batman -- Martial Artist" because I've been so busy (and in my head I'm thinking it will be rather lengthy).

I have been working as a Production Assistant on a short film being made by some fellow UCF students. As a PA, I've been doing a little of everything (I've dealt with equipment, recorded a small bit of the audio, dealt with some of the food [craft services], and even been an extra). It's been time-consuming and very tiring, but it's been worth it because I've gotten to work with some great people.

I know that none of you will probably ever see the film, but I encourage you to visit the production site at http://8ththefilm.blogspot.com.
The film is called "8th" and it is a nice little coming-of-age piece about friends having to separate. It's written and directed by a cool cat named Marcos, and produced by a cool chick named Rene.

Check it out.

What are you going to do with this film?

I mean the internet has allowed small artists more attention. Are there alternative-web-based methods to gaining an audience?

Since I'm so low on the chain o' command on this one, I have no idea. I'm not sure if festivals are in the works, but I think it's predominantly for the director to show around in order to raise funds for his feature. Not sure how that works, but apparently it's fairly common amongst people going for their MFAs in Film.
