New “Content-Aware Feature” coming in Photoshop CS5
Amazing time saver
Florida state is trying to pass a tax credit for filmmaking in their state ‘as long as the film has no gay and lesbian content’. This makes me very sad, angry and determined to make ‘Strange Frame’ a big thing. It makes Parker sad.

I did the artwork and animation all on Monday.
I’ve been wary about film festivals. In 1999, I did the production on a feature film called Ka’ililauokekoa. It was a low budget film, but never the less did very well at the film festivals. When I did the math on the ticket sales at these festivals I found that these festivals grossed 2 times the budget of the film. This was very unsettling for me since the film never got a theatrical deal.
There are definitely festivals to go to where the exposure is worth giving the festival free content, but that is the conscious decision every filmmaker must make: Who am I willing to give free content to? What is the non-fiscal payback?
Tribeca recently announced they are following Sundance into the VOD distribution model. David Poland sums up this idea better than I can: Festivals Raping Filmmakers… Or Just A Friendly Reach Around?
