Oh well, received the bad news today, my short film didn’t make it into the Top 16 at Tropfest…. back to square one *sigh*.
Having said that, it was still a wonderful experience for me, to have made it and completed it. I just feel utterly bad for all the people involved who did such a great job on it, particularly my husband, my bro and the actors. I feel like I have disappointed them. Here comes the hard part of letting the world know that I have failed waaaa….
But I refuse to be discouraged (although it will take time, and I must admit, it was a huge blow to my heart). I will see if I can submit it elsewhere, perhaps there are other festivals that will have it. In the meantime, I am working on getting it uploaded to Vimeo so my wonderful friends can all watch it. I still think it’s beautifully done, although perhaps the subject matter doesn’t fit the Tropfest type, which is more commercial and happy sort.
Glenn’s friend’s movie made it to the Top 16 though – so congrats to him 🙂 I am happy for him because he has worked so hard on it and he really deserves it. I am hoping he will get to win one of the winner spots!
I wish I could get over this and not become such a sore loser… perhaps things will get better after the festival.
Thanks for listening to my e-whinging 🙂
I have now uploaded the movie to Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/2978357
