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....
