That Hand Film has been hot lately!

That Hand Film is all over the internet now and only recently did it get a ton of hits that over a year of my own hosting couldn't do.

Thank you Shira Abel and Aniboom

Thank you Laurence Asseraf and Dimitris Athos; directors of The BeFilm Underground Film Festival

To Amber Boardman and the Shirley Gallery's Give Me a Minute exhibition in Williamsburg, NY!

Thank You Signe Baumane for helping me connect with Animayo and to both you and Bill Plympton for the Kodak Screening room for the Animals and Animators screening!

After over a year since I made the film, That Hand Film has been receiving some nice 1ups late in the game. I need to recalibrate a lot of things before I can jump into production of my next animated short film which I have in pre-production phases only. More will happen and sooner rather than later. Before I time out for a bit, I wanted to thank everyone who helped make That Hand Film in particular because it's the first film that's gotten more response than about 10 years of other shorts combined.

A huge thanks to my family and my awesome crew that helped make That Hand Film a real high five!: Daniel Kokoszka - Multimedia Consultant, Gigi Chen- background painter, David Perry-background painter, David Cooper-sound engineer, Tim Sharbaugh-drums, and Elliot Cowan-creative consultant.

Ass kickery one and all:) Thanks so much for all of your support which was supertastical. Till next time around....
